Morrissey plays The Smiths

So Morrissey seems to add around about 5 Smiths songs into his setlist each tour, just wondering of the songs he's performed which ones do you think he and the band have pulled off best, so if you were to pick 5 of the batch of songs he's already performded to go into the setlist what would they be. Interesting to get people's opinions on which ones they think were done best.

I can't explain it, but I really, really don't like his live version of The Headmaster Ritual. :blushing:

It's great! One of the highlights of the Who Put the M in Manchester DVD and that Glastonbury bootleg that was going about a few years ago.
