While we wait for the new album to arrive, let us go about rating the songs we know, on a daily basis, and compile our own Morrissey/Smiths Top 100.
And instead of chronologically, let's do them alphabetically.


Voting should be something along these lines:
10: Classic, perfect
9: Near classic, brilliant
8: Really good Moz/Smiths song
7: Good Moz/Smiths song
6: Decent, OK, Nothing special
5: Uninspired
4: Poor
3: Bad
2: Should never have been released
1: He/They should be ashamed

Not vintage Moz but still I think it's a very good song of a classic album. Found it hard to decide but gave it 8.

Poco Innocente

A ring a ding ding
genius smooooooch

Walkers Crisp

Nobody's Nothing
I gave it a 9 because its one of the fave tracks of my fave moz album. it's a difficult and not very likeable little beast.

9 x Fined

Like everything else on Southpaw Grammar 10, 10, 10.

People who still haven't embraced this album simply aren't playing it loud enough.

It's something special about it but still it's just decent, OK. A weak seven or a strong six.

One of the worst songs on one of Morrissey's worst albums. Again, I question the sanity of you people who gave this one a ten. The lyrics of this song are so annoying! It sounds like that sort of empty, meaningless advice that mothers give to their moody teenagers. "Oh, honey - just do your best and don't worry!!" I expect better from Morrissey. And the music is bland and uninspired as well. What rubbish.
