What is your least favourite Morrissey single?

Again, a continuation of tonights theme, what is your least favourite Morrissey single?

I haven't made this a poll as there are more singles than Poll options and rather than compile a shortlist of what i think would be the most likely choices, i think it's fairer to leave it completely open - there is no doubt that someone, somewhere hates Everyday Is Like Sunday!

My own personal choice would be Interlude.

I wouldn't count the Nancy Sinatra version as a Morrissey single, in the same way i wouldn't count Picadilly Palare as a Suggs single.

Roy's keen would also be on my top 5 list, as would Satan Rejected My Soul. I'd put Hold On To Your Friends on there as well - a great album track, but a poor choice for a single, especially stacked up to what else Vauxhall had to offer.

Here we go. Another thread to trash talk Roy's Keen...:rolleyes:

At the end of the day, if the general consensus is that RK is a poor single, then it's fair game. It was a very poor single, and even on the below par Maladjusted album, there were better choices for singles (the title track & Trouble Loves Me for instance).

In my opinion there are only 2 weak singles:

1. We Hate it When Our Friends Become Succesful
2. Quija Board, Quija Board

I just think they are very weak tunes, no real spark to them...

Roy & Satan never charted but they were really good pop songs.

Satan did chart - it reached number 39.

Yes, but #39 is a bit low for a Morrissey single, don't you think? The single did sell but not a lot - therefore there are lots of people paying £20+ on eBay because they didn't realise the value of it at the time. It's a GREAT single!

I agree it is low for a Mozzer single, but it's those people's fault if they are now paying huge amounts for it on e-bay; i bought it the day it was released, as should have any self-respecting Morrissey fan. The value of it at the time? The same as any other Mozzer single released at any time- priceless.

Shame on them for not buying it then. GET OFF THE BANDWAGON is what i say to them now.
