I also love this charming man! I bought a cd with about 50 songs from the Smiths-and I love every single song on it. Well except for one (Vicar in a Tutu) Amazing album, thesmiths are deffinately one of my favourites.
I haven't been able to stop playing Big Mouth Strikes Again, This Charming Man and Hand in Glove. I absolutely love Johnny Marr, as well as Andy Rourke. I love Marr's melodies and precision, and I love how the bass lines weave around them. Rourke is a very vital but underappreciated component of The Smiths.
Johnny Marr's guitar blows my mind. Cemetery Gates is the song that really got me into the Smiths, but basically anything off the Queen is Dead is great. This Charming is another one of my favorites, and Still Ill is great as well. I just got my hands on Meat is Murder, I can't wait to give it a listen.
I'm so jealous of my father, who was a Smiths fan in the 80s and was actually able to see them in concert.
I LOOOOVE Andy Rourke. I am being 100% honest when I say I think he is the best bass player I have ever heard. And Marrs guitar is so unique and I agree with miss mod about being mind blowing. I love the instrumentals so much! The Draize train is my favourite
I have all the Smiths songs on cd but none of Morrisseys, I will buy one really soon...What do you think is his best album? or should I just get a complication of Morrissey hits?
