Yes, it is a matter of opinions. What I liked the most is that they wrote a small review for each song.Obviously it's all a matter of opinion, but some of those selections I would consider slightly odd.
The live version of Redondo Beach or the cover of That's Entertainment, for example.
It also seems massively slanted in favour of his singles. There's no way that the likes of Fatty or Dagenham Dave should be there.
And, unless I missed them, I Know it's Gonna Happen Someday and Now My Heart is Full should have been certs for inclusion.
Man! What a fucking list of tracks! Only two from Low in High School but give it some time! They'll get it!A review of the allegedly 50 best Morrissey songs by Annie Zaleski and Jason Anderson
So it's different from your list? Boo-hoo. Two writers who are obviously big Morrissey fans do a long positive article on your favourite pop singer and you flip a verbal finger to them. Now that's classy.No ‘Now My Heart Is Full.’ No ‘Break Up The Family.’ No ‘Trouble Loves Me.’ No ‘Lost.’ No ‘Come Back To Camden.’ No ‘Will Never Marry. No ‘I Know It’s Gonna Happen Someday.’ No ‘Life Is A Pigsty.’ No ‘I Will See You In Far Off Places.’ No ‘Home Is A Question Mark.’ No ‘Staircase At The University.’ No ‘Istanbul.’
Fuck Spin’s list.
Though these things are all subjective, this list does seem to be written by people with a thin grasp of Morrissey's output. As well as all those song you mention I'm sure I also didn't see Nobody Loves Us, Seasick Yet Still Docked, I've Change My Plea To Guilty, Hold On To Your Friends. It's a singles-heavy list which is quite telling.No ‘Now My Heart Is Full.’ No ‘Break Up The Family.’ No ‘Trouble Loves Me.’ No ‘Lost.’ No ‘Come Back To Camden.’ No ‘Will Never Marry. No ‘I Know It’s Gonna Happen Someday.’ No ‘Life Is A Pigsty.’ No ‘I Will See You In Far Off Places.’ No ‘Home Is A Question Mark.’ No ‘Staircase At The University.’ No ‘Istanbul.'
Hahahaha... Everything is subjective. I wish someone could explain me what's the problem with Redondo Beach (I adore that cover.... but I get that it's somehow considered a disaster by most people here).This list is a joke really!
With Redondo Beach in it, and Now my heart ist full missing, it‘s telling a lot.
Or it‘s a list of the lost... ;-)
