A great thread, found just recently - thx!
So true, jennifer~, that the best ones are those that can make you feel really miserable - but it's incredible how deep they may reach you, sometimes
Here are my favs:

I Know It's Over
There Is a Light That Never Goes Out
How Soon Is Now?
Girlfriend in a Coma

I also love Morrissey's solo work, especially the last album - You Are the Quarry. I hope the upcoming record will be no worse

oh my!!

I love Moz....have a portrait tattoo of him on my right arm.

My fave songs:

Frankly Mr. Shankly
Cemetary Gates
I Know Its Over
Used to be a Sweet Boy
Sing Your Life
The Boy With the Thorn in His Side
Come back to Camden
Moon River
Trouble Loves Me
Reel Around the Fountain
Panic


I could go on and on.

I prefer his songs that are moodier and where is comes across as more of a Crooner.

Here's a bit of an update on the Smiths... from cnn.com, they rejected a quite sizable reunion offer:

i read that article too, erin, and to be quite honest with you, i'm vehemently glad they're not reuniting...it may be my cynicism, but i can't imagine that their music now would be as good, and that would make me sad.

I agree with you. With legends, I think it's mostly better not to waste what you've achieved. I that believe comparisons - after so many years - can only show negative changes.

Good Morrissey is still active solo. I hope the new album will be at least as good as You Are the Quarry.

Myspace has the new album out if you want to hear it.
I cried while listening to it. I am such a wimp when it comes down to Moz.

Hey Moz fans !
His new opus "Ringleader of the Tormentors" is #1 in Britain !
Great evening at Paris Olympia last Tuesday.
(sorry about the cellphone image poor-quality).
Moz moved from L.A. to Rome where he is now based; and where the new album was (masterfully) produced by Tony Visconti (producer of David Bowie, T-Rex etc...).
Great lyrics and HIS flamboyant singing at its best.
And still no compromise from Moz who turned down a lot of £ offered to reunite with the rest of The Smiths.
Hope you get to see him live (32 dates in Britain-sold out though).

The new album is great. Some of the songs seem more Smiths-like than his other solo stuff.

Although, the song about the kid killing his stepfather or whatever.....kind of creeps me out.
