    The Smiths A-Z: "The Draize Train"

    Love this, I wonder why Moz felt he couldn't add to it.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Death of a Disco Dancer"

    For me personally, this is the sound of Manchester after dark in my teens.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Death at One's Elbow"

    Not their strongest but still up-tempo, the mystery surrounding the identity of 'Glen' and the general whimsy of it makes it a worthwhile listen to me.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Cemetry Gates"

    'Gravely read the stones' is a fantastic turn of phrase.

    The Smiths A-Z: "The Boy With the Thorn in His Side"

    erm it's brilliant. Next Smiths song...erm it's brilliant. As Andy Kershaw said in '86, 'I sat down with a piece of paper and wrote all the names of the bands whose music will endure for decades. An hour later I had only written down one name - The Smiths'

    The Smiths A-Z: "Bigmouth Strikes Again"

    Just as my contributions to the solo a-z were a boring list of negatives, my contributions towards the smiths a-z are just going to be a boring list of superlatives. This song is incredible from start to finish. It's mini solo at 1:04 got you on your feet and the lyric is classic tragi-comedy...

    The Smiths A-Z: "Barbarism Begins at Home"

    Not a favourite of mine but the Smiths canon of songs is so strong. This A-Z is already reminding me that they didn't release a poor track. Even the lesser songs were stronger than most of their contemporary's output. A sharp contrast to their singer's solo career that followed.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Back To The Old House"

    It is very difficult to articulate how much these songs meant at the time on an emotional level. It's so long ago now, it's like revisiting someone else's life. But what a beautiful waltz-like reminisce through the mind it offers. 16/10 for this one.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Asleep"

    That saves me typing. Paradoxically, its the beauty of songs like this which would make me reconsider my decision to leave life.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Accept Yourself"

    That's because I had Girl Afraid in my head when posting. When we get to Girl Afraid, I'll write a review of Accept Yourself

    The Smiths A-Z: "Ask"

    I was never into it, not at the time and not now but if it was released as a 2022 Moz/Marr solo single, it would be hailed as a masterwork/return to form.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Accept Yourself"

    This is going to be a lot easier than the solo A-Z. Accept Yourself = Heart rendering excellence. ..and EVERYthing she wants costs money.

    Which record label should release "Bonfire Of Teenagers"?

    When record labels are inundated with artists who are prepared to 'play the game' in terms of advances, promotion, etc, they have no need to sign an artist who steadfastly refuses to play the game. He doesn't sell enough to warrant the arseache of having to deal with him.
