Great to see two new songs in the top 100, and I think they're the right two. Shame Smiler with Knife is so low - for me it's up there with his very best - but I can understand why it's a bit marmite.

And The Kid's a Looker is now his worst song ever. To be fair, I think that's probably right ...

Thanks for the great work again, Houdini!

Harsh Truth

Ever Felt Had?
Here is a game: make a 18 song setlist with these lowest-ranking songs:

I guess I would pay to see this:

There Speaks a True Friend
Found Found Found
Noise is the Best Revenge
Ambitious Outsiders
Action is My Middle Name
Sorry Doesn't Help
What's the World?
Slum Mums
Tony the Pony
All the Lazy Dykes
Sweetie Pie (M. Farrell Version)
The Kid's a Looker
Black-Eyed Susan
He Cried
Cosmic Dancer
Get off the Stage
------
Work is a Four Letter Word
Death at One's Elbow
 

Harsh Truth

Ever Felt Had?
And The Kid's a Looker is now his worst song ever. To be fair, I think that's probably right ...

I'll take "The Kid's a Looker" over "Kick the Bride Down the Aisle" anyday... anyday... anyday

Thanks a lot for the polls. I've found them to be really interesting. I'm glad the new songs did so well. I really think Staircase, and Mountjoy are two of the best ever.
 
Average score of 7.55 for the 12 album songs. Looking at the other thread, that put it 5th in Morrissey's solo career, after Vauxhall and I, Your Arsenal, Viva Hate and You Are the Quarry. Not bad.

I don't think Sweetie Pie would have been anywhere near the bottom had it been the unreleased version we were voting for, it is a country mile better than the official version.

Wow, I Love eight songs, out of these thirty three songs, that have been tossed in the gutter by Moz and Smiths fans. I can't believe that "Tony the Pony" is #270. That really surprised me. I really love that song, the gentle music, Moz's interesting & unpredictable lyrics, and Morrissey's voice is wonderful and kinda all over the map at times. "Tony the Pony" is one of my twenty favorite Moz of all-time. Wow, 270th! The other seven songs that I love are "Black-Eyed Susan," "America Is Not the World," "Money Changes Everything," "He Cried," the incredibly underrated "All the Lazy Dykes," I have to admit that I've always been fond of "The Harsh Truth of the Camera Eye," and the awesomely underrated "Papa Jack." I also really like songs #257, #258, #259, #272 ( I like it because it's true), and #274. Nine of these songs I've never listened to before in my life. I don't have the energy to compose an 18 song setlist.

I was happy to see "I'm Playing Easy to Get" get quite a bit of love. It's still really underrated in my book, it's one of my ten favorite Morrissey songs. It's very beautiful and his voice is incredible in the song!

tony the pony is a b-side though to an album thats been written as one of his least quality records so i imagine that a certain amount of people just dont know it very well or at all. not the best recording either but its a good song

I'd say thats a fair reflection to be honest (although personally I prefer other albums to Quarry)

And i'm in work hence why I'm on this ridiculous website 2 hours ebfore NY Eve
