    Bonhams: "Live In Session" - Property From The John Peel Archive catalogue available (Smiths items listed) Auction due June 14, 2022

    I think he does use both in the song, but it's interesting to see it listed here as "What Do You See In Her?" because for years we've all assumed the title was "Him" - apparently we all had it wrong. Always nice to learn new things about those early days.

    Request: Rare Smiths Mixes

    Fantastic stuff, thank you! I've now found the European version of "Stop Me" buried on Smithstorrents, so it's just the longer live version of Meat Is Murder to go!

    Request: Rare Smiths Mixes

    Hi all, I'm trying to fill some gaps in my collection, and there are just three versions of Smiths songs I'm missing (according to passionsjustlikemine). I've been through the NHS, Extra Track and Smithstorrents and can't find them on there. Would be really grateful if anyone does have them. *...

    The Moz/Smiths Top 100 - FINAL RESULTS 2014

    Average score of 7.55 for the 12 album songs. Looking at the other thread, that put it 5th in Morrissey's solo career, after Vauxhall and I, Your Arsenal, Viva Hate and You Are the Quarry. Not bad.

    The Moz/Smiths Top 100 - FINAL RESULTS 2014

    Great to see two new songs in the top 100, and I think they're the right two. Shame Smiler with Knife is so low - for me it's up there with his very best - but I can understand why it's a bit marmite. And The Kid's a Looker is now his worst song ever. To be fair, I think that's probably right...

    The Moz/Smiths Top 100, Part 284: ART-HOUNDS (FINAL SONG)

    I love this. It has so much energy, and there's a raw urgency to Moz's vocals - and such a great falsetto! The last minute or so is incredible. Most exciting song he's put out for years.

    Is "World Peace is None of your Business" the worst Morrissey album ever

    Not even close - my fourth favourite after Vauxhall and I, Your Arsenal and Viva Hate, and certainly a better album than Quarry. Lyrically, Smiler With Knife, Mountjoy and Oboe Concerto are his best work for many years - love those songs.

    Best Album Since VAUXHALL AND I?

    WPINOYB for me. Quarry has four good singles and Camden, but three or four very weak tracks. World Peace is a more interesting and consistent work, if less accessible.

    The Moz/Smiths Top 100, Part 275: SMILER WITH KNIFE

    Several tracks on this album are "growers", but this more than any other. Possibly the best lyric on the album, and the most interesting piece of music. A strange, threatening 10.

    The Moz/Smiths Top 100, Part 272: I'M NOT A MAN

    Baffling intro aside, this is really lovely. Possibly the best song on the album, and the one I relate to the most.

    The Moz/Smiths Top 100, Part 271: NEAL CASSADY DROPS DEAD

    Still no really sure what he's singing about, but it sounds great. 9.

    The Moz/Smiths Top 100, Part 270: THE BULLFIGHTER DIES

    Another one that's grown on me. I find the puns quite charming now, and I love the spirit of it. Great fun. 8.

    The Moz/Smiths Top 100, Part 269: EARTH IS THE LONELIEST PLANET

    Wow - as it stands, this is ranked below The Harsh Truth of the Camera Eye. It's not that bad, surely?

    The Moz/Smiths Top 100, Part 269: EARTH IS THE LONELIEST PLANET

    This one has really grown on me. I know it's Moz-by-numbers and rationally I should give it a 6, but for whatever reason I like it more than that. So 7.
