I think the best Smiths album was Meat Is Murder. "What She Said" is a classic! :thumbsup:

Oooooh, and my fave songs are - Sweet and Tender Hooligan & Miserable Lie. Well today they are anyway.

 

"Sweet & Tender Hooligan" is a brilliant song, not too keen on "Miserable Lie" though.

Big Smiths/Mozza fan here!!

 

Anyone see MTV2 on Saturday night? They played something like 3 hours of Smiths and Morrissey. There were 6 videos I'd never even seen before.

 

Much as I love The Queen Is Dead (esp. Frankly, Mr Shankly, the beautiful Cemetery Gates and Never Had No-One Ever) I still prefer Strangeways, Here We Come, even though it is a less cohesive album.

 

My favourite single is probably Girlfriend In A Coma, best track something like London or You Just Haven't Earned It Yet Baby. Oh I dunno, so many great tracks.

 

I saw Mozza at the City Hall c 1992. My favourite Mozza albums are Viva Hate, Vauxhall & I and his most recent, You Are The Quarry. Fave Mozza song is either Suedehead or Every Day Is Like Sunday.

 

And the Smiths song Miserable Lie (off their eponymous album) is guaranteed to have me howling in laughter and crying my eyes out: 'I look at yours, you laugh at mine and love is just a miserable lie').

 

Loving it!

Smiths were my favourite band as a teenager - I'm 26 now. They broke up long before I discovered them. But I can't listen to them now...they make me feel queesy. Something deep and traumatic in that.

 

Used to say Hi to Johnny Marr after school as he lived next door. Bernard Sumner could often be seen driving in and out as Johnny had a studio in there.

 

And Ian Brown could often be seen riding his BMX round near the sweet shop. Him and Squires use to go to my school.

 

Not interesting really...

oh best songs have got to be This Charming Man, Boy with a Thorn in His Side, Real Around the Fountain, but my absolute favorite is Heaven Knows I'm Misrerable Now makes me howl with laughter! especially 'I was looking for a job and then I found a job and heaven knows I'm miserable now!' Spot on Mozza. Got to see him at Doncaster on the Suedehead tour and in Dec at Brighton. Both were ace and I ended up in floods of tears, for my lost youth more than anything I think!
