Anyone not putting Sunday at the summit is being a smart-arse. Not big. Not clever. Not funny. 🫠
Everyday - I respect. But it’s been overplayed so many times that it’s actually become a song I’d skip every time now. I also don’t think it’s ever been translated live well. Same with How Soon Is Now
 
Everyday is Like Sunday (I rarely listen to this, but I feel it deserves the top spot by virtue of being a well-written signature song)
You Have Killed Me
Sing Your Life
Billy Budd
I Have Forgiven Jesus (I used to think very little of this song, but the texture of the vocals elevates it for me, as it does for many YATQ tracks)
We’ll Let You Know
Ambitious Outsiders
Jacky’s Only Happy When She’s Up on the Stage
Bobby, Don’t You Think They Know?
The Boy Racer (The chorus is too repetitive for my taste and leaves the song feeling slight)
I’m Not A Man (The decent backing track and vocal performance are ruined by the lazy rhyming)
Only A Pawn in Their Game (Not a terrible cover, but I rarely feel the need to revisit it)
Black Cloud (I've never cared for the music. It's also one of my least favorite examples of Morrissey's belting/more forceful vocals that he started to use frequently on YOR and after. I don't always dislike that style. It just often lacks the dynamics and richness he had going on YATQ and ROTT)
