    Morrissey - Istanbul

    Joe Chiccarelli, the album's producer, stated that â€Morrissey wanted to evoke the feeling of the hectic and chaotic streets of the city of Istanbul, so he used a cigar-box guitar, a lap steel guitar and a complicated and busy drum rhythm, plus an actual gong as percussion, as well as vocal samples from a field recording taken in the streets of Istanbul by guitarist Jesse Tobias.

    "Istanbul"


    When he first cried, his mother died. I had tried to be his guide
    When he was born I was too young, the father searches for the son


    In Istanbul.
    Give him back to me
    In Istanbul.
    Give me back my brown eyed son.


    Moonlight jumping through the trees, sunken eyes avoiding me.
    From dawn to dusk the hunt is on, the father searches for the son.


    In Istanbul
    Give him back to me
    In Istanbul
    Give me back my brown eyed son


    On secret streets in disbelief, little shadow shows the lead
    Prostitutes stylish and glum, in amongst them you are one
    Oh what have I done...


    Rolling breathless off the tongue the vicious street gang slang
    I lean into a box of pine, identify the kid as mine...
