I stopped reading after I saw that "Well I Wonder" was placed in the bottom dozen. I mean, really, that song is a gem!

I agree...thought exactly the same and it is better than many more, plus the instrumentals get very negative comments which are in reality glorious....but as i you go down the list you realise what an amazing, iconic band The Smiths were and what an amazing legacy they have left us.
The glory of the Smiths was that each song then and moreso now, after the passing of time evokes personal memories of good and bad times to the listener that makes lists like just like many others really irrelevant...my favourite is Jeane which is a lowly 65th....will i lose any sleep....mmmm ....no.

I started reading this thinking "it's all subjective, no need to get upset" then I found Paint A Vulgar Picture below Death At One's Elbow and nearly booted the screen in.

Exactly. And they have Asleep at #5. I like that song but no way is it even in the top 40 Smiths songs. Bit of a joke of a list. The obligatory There Is A Light as #1. Pointless exercise really.

Moz saying The Draize Train is the weakest Marr song. I don't agree. Death At One's Elbow is far worse. I always liked Draize and wish Moz had sung on it. It's better than anything his current band has handed him in years.
