Thankyou everybody. I think i've going to go with How Soon Is Now and take it from there. I'll avoid the more 'Morrissey' ones, if you know what I mean. I'll keep you all updated on how it goes.
Strangely, "Seasick, Yet Still Docked" is the one that hooked me on Morrissey. It was a very short journey to loving The Smiths from there.
In my life
Why do I smile
At people who I'd much rather
Kick in the eye

How Soon Is Now?
Then tell them that those are the first six Smiths *b-sides*.
This site is a complete piece of crap. Why do I keep coming back? I'm related to GG Allin - I make shit, I see shit, I eat shit.
It depends on what kind of singing style they like.
Bigmouth strikes again is usually a safe bet.
How soon is now? if they are one of those who might not like Moz's voice.
What difference does it make perhaps?
How soon is now?
Half a person

What she said
Last night I dreamt...
Looking to the camera/messing around/and pulling faces
there is a light and this charming man seem to be the consensus favorites... i'd go with those or just give them a copy of the singles compilation.
Anything from Louder Than Bombs.
I started with Sheila Take A Bow & the only person I've ever managed to convert to the ways of the Smith, I used Sweet & Tender Hooligan, Girl Afraid & Half A Person.

Give them a copy of Strangeways, Here We Come. If they don't fall in love with every song on that album, they will probably never become dedicated Smiths fans.
