Morrissey, "Satellite of Love"
"Thank God for those, like Lou, who move within their own laws, otherwise imagine how dull the world would be," Morrissey said when the godfather of punk died in October. This cover of Reed's 1972 classic is fittingly reverent while staying true to its author's legacy of moving within his own laws by switching up some of the lyrics to fit Moz' own obsessions. But we're pretty sure Lou would've hated BBC anchor George Alagiah too.
