If "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" doesn't go through it will be a travesty. Definitely The Smiths' best ever song after TIALTNGO.
 

Midnight

A Hostage To Kindness
Hand In Glove
How Soon Is Now?
Reel Around The Fountain
The Boy With The Thorn In His Side
Well I Wonder

Hideously difficult one, this time!
 
girl afraid ,cuz I'm that way
hand in glove, cuz I like the phrase "little charmers"
I want the one i cant have, cuz I always want the ones I can't have
reel around the fountain,cuz 15 minutes with you how could I ever say no?
and Joke cuz I choose bad, i was meant to chose still ill
 

Inttenssity

I Want The One I CAN'T :mad: Have
Still Ill (anyone have a remedy?)
Joke Isn't Funny Anymore (sometimes my laughing continues inappropriately though)

This charming man
Please, please, please
How soon is now ?
The headmaster ritual

drunken goldfish

blah blah fishcakes
This Charming Man and Still Ill cause they're perfect
How Soon Is Now? cause of the lyrics
Reel Around the Fountain cause his voice sounds especially lovely
And The Boy With The Thorn In His Side cause of the long "oh..." bit at the end which gives me goosbumps.

With heavy heart....

How Soon Is Now I've heard far too much (please don't play at Manchester!!)
Handsome Devil isn't very good IMHO.
This Charming Man is a mere staple of indie discos up and down the world.
What Difference Does It Make? is a song that I liked in my youth but not so much now.

The 4 1985 songs are a vast improvement in terms of energy and maturity than the 83, 84 songs (apart from Charming Man I guess)

Anyway who cares what I think? Hope Well I Wonder gets through though. And Headmaster Ritual. And That Joke. And obviously the Boy With The Thorn In HIs Side
