Black: In your songs, you spend most of your time in cars and beds —- you appear to be relatively fond of leather...
Morrissey: I certainly do, yes.
Black: Aren't these relatively sexual ambients?
Morrissey: They certainly are. You're on the right track now. Next question.
Black: No. Tell me about cars. Aren't cars very male?
Morrissey: They are, but I'm afraid we all have our idiosyncracies, and one of mine... as a child of the sixties, when the seats of cars were made entirely of leather, to me there was something highly erotic about actually being in a car... I've always found cars highly erotic.
Black: Why? Because they go vroom vroom, and you can switch them on and switch them off when you want?
Morrissey: No, no —- not the driver's seat... there was just something about the old leather seats...
Black: So you're into leather?
Morrissey: Y-y-e... next question.
