Relax, yes, I'm trying...
Houdini, you are really quite remarkable. I would take my hat off to you, if I was wearing one.
A great poll and a great top ten. I thought "Lost", "Well I Wonder" and "Irish Blood" would rate higher though.
Very supprised "Speedway" made the top ten. Good song but top ten? Well obviously it is......... duh!
Would have wished for "Sunny" to be a little higher than 84 as I think its one of his best and most overlooked songs. All in all though, a fair result.
Whats the highest b-side? Jack the Ripper at 26?
Thanks a million for doing such a gret poll.
An utterly frustrating and confusing poll for me. I cannot see how post-2000 singles were voted so low compared to some marginal Smith's filler material. I think there is a lot of nostalgia here, and I don't think the poll is in any way scientific. All my bitching and whining aside, it was a great idea and thanks for maintaining it!
Nothing to do with nostalgia for me - I only started listening to Moz and the Smiths two years ago, and I think most of the Smiths album tracks and b-sides were better than the post-2000s singles!
And as this poll is all about personal opinion, it was never going to be "scientific" or objective - that's not the point! There's no such thing as an objective judgement of art.
Can we all agree that the top 20 would make an excellent introduction to non-fans who want to know what it's all about?
Except I'd replace "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore" with "Hand in Glove"
