Pretty much agree with that, too. There are a couple clunkers, but out of the ~74 (?) songs they composed, they mostly range from good to outstanding.

Hard to pick an absolute favorite Smiths song. But I'd probably say 'Cemetry Gates'.

Yeah, if I didn't pick 'Cemetry Gates', my next choice would be 'Panic'. Well done, zak. Love the choice for Rusholme Ruffians, too - totally underrated track. And the simple pleasures of Please Please Please are timeless.

Honestly the opener on this (A Rush and a Push) is an absolute fucking banger, too.

All about the images Rusholme Ruffians conjures up.

Puts you slap bang in the carnival. ‘The air hangs heavy like a dulling wine’ classic!!

'Girlfriend in a Coma' is so good. Maybe a Top 5 Smiths track.
