Cemetry Gates is great for the literary references alone. You can't go wrong with anything on The Queen is Dead, really. And I hate to sound so lame, but the singles collection is ace, too. The only real weakness is that there were so few singles from that album they can't be on the collection. The Best ofs are best to avoid, though.

I Know It's Over
Back to the Old House
Nowhere Fast
Asleep
There is a Light
etc
etc
etc





The Smiths are amazing,
the way people put the Beatles or Pink Floyd on a pedestal
The Smiths are that for me,
while I like both beatles & floyd and understand their great significance to music,
they never really hit any personal nerve with me
the way the Smiths do

I can't even write about them, I don't know where to start, they had the simplicity in their sound yet such complex lyrics. It's all there.
There hasn't been another writer like Morrissey, and probably never will. He truly maintains his own territory.

"This Charming Man"

No doubt. One of my favorite songs ever.

"Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" is another one.

Give me a song about depression and suicide and I'll eat it up.

Stop Me If You Think That You've Heard This One Before
How Soon Is Now
The Queen Is Dead
There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
Frankly Mr Shankly

Can't decide on one....all I know is that The Queen Is Dead is the greatest album of all time

I Know It's Over is my absolute favourite of The Smiths songs that I've heard so far but there's a whole load of other songs of theirs that I love and adore too. I'm just too lazy to list them all!
