There's something sad about that list. Top 2 are his most recognised solo songs from his most sucessful comeback, the rest are the most recent work with a couple of Smiths songs lobbed in. Either it's a brilliant double bluff ('You can forget about the Smiths or Johnny reunion, I don't like most of that stuff anymore'), or it's saying "Look, my solo work is ace, even the most recent stuff', so, Mr Record Company exec - have another think.
I would guess that most fans would cavil at the idea that "That's How People Grow Up' is more worthy of pride than "This Charming Man'. But we're not Moz, so we wouldn't know.

This list is atrocious. I think he does it on purpose just to be difficult. Like rearranging the furniture when you leave the room.
I expected these particular choices from him, but not the order.
Where is "I have forgiven Jesus" - now that's a great song, surely better than "that how people grow up" or "all you need is me"?
"That's How People Grow Up" better than "Boy With the Thorn"?
"All You Need Is Me" better than "Tomorrow" or "Boxers"?
He's just taking the piss now. Next he'll be compiling lists of his favourite cover art, favourite actors, favourite jeans, favourite cheese....we know you're bored Moz, but come on - please don't leave us with nothing but lists for the next five years.

He's probably not that bored. I imagine he's meeting with attorneys and having to recall conversations that took place four years ago or whatever, paperwork and all that. I think list making is just like his defrag from dealing with all that technical lawyer bullshit. I wouldn't read too much into it. He's a lister. I think it's interesting.
I can't wait for his list of favourite co-writers...
or a list of fave best-ofs/comps
You are right Moz, Hand In Glove is nothing to be proud of.
On the other hand, That's How People Grow Up.
I know why you're dreaming, because it's the only escape
Any sane human being would have included their chart debut singles (in my opinion) as surely the sense of pride at that achievement can never be matched*? Especially by that dog turd at number 4.
All this proves is Morrissey is definitely not sane.
*Unless there was a number one hit record (a-hem)
Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don't have any kids yourself
