Alphabetical order:

Everyday is like Sunday
First of the gang to die (2002 version if possible)
Life is a pigsty
The never played symphonies
Now my heart is full
Speedway
Such a little thing makes such a big difference
Trouble loves me
We’ll let you know
When last I spoke to Carol

I will never understand people saying their lists will change in an hour or in a day. Are you that fickle? Don’t you know yourselves? Of course, we all love tons and tons of Moz songs, but surely there are a limited number that means just a little bit more? That you love just a little bit more? That you find yourselves coming back to more often?
About 50 of them, yes.

And of those 50 there must be ten you feel especially close to.
I don't think most of us have a set top 10. Mine change based on my mood, life events and everything else.

That's the beauty of such a large catelogue of music to choose from!

1. The Never-Played Symphonies
2. Now My Heart Is Full
3. Everyday is Like Sunday
4. We’ll Let You Know
5. Jack the Ripper (live 2004 Birthday Gig)
6. Life is a Pigsty
7. Maladjusted
8. Come Back to Camden
9. Seasick, Yet Still Docked
10. I’d Love To

These are the ones I most often come back to when thinking about my ten favorites. There are a few others knocking about, but these are the most likely candidates. And if live versions of songs aren’t allowed, I’m changing things around and substituting it for Blue Dreamers Eyes.
Easy listening Morrissey. Obviously not a fan of The National Front Disco from "Beethoven Was Deaf."

Not ONE mention of 'Black Cloud' (as far as we can see). God, what a terrible, terrible dirge . . . and that hysterical overwrought reading - the point at which the muse probably left for good.

Hahaha… We can’t all be edgy and rawk n rawl like you, tough guy. Some of us like the subtleties of his more melancholic repertoire.

I feel like we've been scolded... it's hard to narrow a 30+ year career down to 10 songs... doing so means excluding ones that you may enjoy equally. Yes, there are a limited number of songs that mean a bit more... but for me anyway, there are more than 10 of them.
