I'm looking more for comments on the order, rather the songs themselves.... but I'm open to ideas. ;)


This Charming Man
Still Ill
Girl afraid
Ask
Bigmouth Strikes Again
Cemetry Gates
Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me
Nowhere Fast
What difference does it make?
Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before
Pretty Girls Make Graves
Rusholme Ruffians
There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others

Great mix of classics - Although I can't put a Smiths compilation together without Panic in it. (This may be an illness?)

agreed! it's one of the songs that got me into the smiths. and also you can tell who is a "true" smiths fan by asking them what the name of the song is. if they say "hang the dj" you know they haven't done their homework!

That's almost as bad as asking someone if they've heard of Morrissey and they respond by saying, "I've heard of them, they're an OK band." Morrissey is 1 FREAKING PERSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad:"

well..technically..Morrissey is a band. But who wants to be technical! and obviously people who automatically think "Morrissey! Band!" don't know much, or anything, at all. they could be rocket scientists, brain surgeons...still, know no-thing!

I think it's too many slow songs for a newbie
 
But it is a fans collection isnt it. Not an introduction to the band.

The worst is when some idiot will say...."yeah, I liked Jim Morrison" :rolleyes:
or better yet, "What, Jim Morrison's still alive?" :eek: :rolleyes::rolleyes:

3. This Charming Man
4. Hand In Glove
5. Stop Me If You Think You´ve Heard This One Before

17. Sheila Take A Bow
18. Girlfriend In A Come
19. Ask

i tried to make a compromise between putting the singles on there but also the songs that i find very accessable..

Ive given up trying 2 get other ppl into the smiths, i lent a mate the queen is dead and he gave it me back with the kind of look u would give someone if they had just walked into your house on christmas day and pissed on your kids! lol

...what a lovely Freudian slip....;)

hahaha, well spotted! i do hope she´ll be hooked by the cds, especially in my combination with my letter full of praise for their music that i gave her together with the cds..
