Morrissey's "Everyday Is Like Sunday" was his second solo single, taken from the debut solo album Viva Hate, released in 1988.

Reaching the Top 10 in the UK charts it remains one of his best-known songs outside of The Smiths


The song has been covered many times with various brooding renditions popping up over the last 30 years. We've compiled some of the better ones for you to check out.

In 1995, Pretenders covered the song for the film Boys Don't Cry starring Whoopi Goldberg and Drew Barrymore. Chrissie's vocal lending itself beautifully to the song as though it were her own. 


Amercian alt-rock band of late 80s fame, 10,000 Maniacs released it as a B-side in 1992 on their single "Candy Everybody Wants"


Colin Meloy of The Decemberists recorded a stripped back version for his tribute album, Colin Meloy Sings Morrissey in 2005.


And, we just accidentally stumbled across this excellent live version by Natalie Merchant on Youtube too... a bit hard to tell if it's her solo or with 10,000 Maniacs, but regardless her voice is fabulous.
