    The idea of including Stretch Out and Wait ahead of That Joke isn't Funny Anymore amused me...ironically enough.

    Meat Is Murder is one of the most important songs ever written.
    "And the turkey you festively slice / Is murder"

    When they find out that they can't tame The Wild Turkey,
    Then they try to shame The Wild Turkey.

  14. bizarre notion...it's one of their most haunting melodies and chord progressions.

    And I'm sorry you don't just bury The Headmaster Ritual on side 2.

    It's their best ever opening to an LP. Followed closely by A Rush and a Push.

    I'll keep How Soon Is Now where it belongs - as an extra track on the 12" of William

    I listened to the revised version of Meat is Murder a few times. A lot of it I liked, especially the way that Stretch Out and Wait was given a chance to shine following HSIN. I couldn't help but feeling like a few tracks were getting lost in the shuffle, however, particularly Nowhere Fast and Headmaster Ritual. For my liking, I also thought this sequencing was a little too back-and-forth. If I was going to change up the order of Meat is Murder under these guidelines, I'd do something like this:

    Side 1:
    How Soon is Now?
    Stretch Out and Wait
    Rusholme Ruffians
    The Headmaster Ritual
    I Want the One I Can't Have

    Side 2:
    Barbarism Begins at Home
    That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore
    What She Said
    Nowhere Fast
    Well I Wonder

    No disrespect to Shakespeare's Sister, but that song being included over Joke is a tragedy, especially with What She Said being so close by in the track listing. Shakespeare's Sister is a good song, but not worthy of being on what I consider to be the best Smiths album, with or without the title track
