Favorite and least favorite composition by each songwriter?

Kuiper

Better than Marr
The question is straightforward enough, what is your favorite composition (going by music alone, not lyrics or Morrissey's vocals, so only the things within the control of the composer) by each of Morrissey's songwriters? Or you don't have to answer for the more obscure songwriters, you can just focus on the more prominent ones, such as Alain, Johnny, Street.

If you aren't familiar with what songs were written by who, I know there have been at least a couple threads detailing all those facts. I think I might be able to find a link if someone else doesn't beat me to it first...
