    Which Smiths/Morrissey song is consistently much better when played live ?

    For me I much prefer the live version of "I know it's over" found in "Rank" over the studio version in "The queen is dead"..I also prefer "Jack the ripper" played live over the bland studio version.

    Well , what about you ???

    The live version of 'Jack The Ripper' definitely. Would love him to play that at RAH.

    'The Loop' also sounds much better live.

    Jack The Ripper sounds amazing live, but I've always wondered why he leaves the last verse out...

    "Let Me Kiss You" sounds much better live.

    We'll Let You Know. I prefer most of Your Arsenal live, actually.

    Other than The Loop, I can't quite think of a studio version I prefer. And the Loop is great live as well, just not as rockabilly or... spectral.

    Pretty much all of them, agreed, especially the Kill Uncle material. I couldn't believe how different the KU album sounded after I saw the Dallas vid :confused:

    How Could Anybody Possibly Know How I Feel. Much more dynamic and rockier than the studio version.

    The studio version of 'The Loop' DOES have more appeal to me for some reason. It's just so damned perfect. The clicky intro, the meandering bass -- ah! :D Great :)

    First time I saw Ganglord live it nearly knocked me over. Or maybe that was the steep Apollo floor but yes, big bollocks. It's the Morrissey song live that says, 'don't f**k with me' more than any of them.

    Except maybe, Don't Make Fun Of Daddy's Voice

  19. He should do a live medley of Ganglord/Fuck Tha Police!
     
  20. My list of songs that are definitely better live:

    Billy Budd
    Alsatian Cousin
    Speedway
    The Queen is Dead
    Bigmouth Strikes Again
    Death at One's Elbow
    First of the Gang to Die

    Those that don't quite cut it live:
    You Know I Couldn't Last
    Mama Lay Softly
    Maladjusted
    The Last of the Famous International Playboys
    Suedehead
    Meat is Murder
    Sister, I'm a Poet
