Golden Lights
Oscillate Wildly
Papa Jack
Ammunition
Meat Is Murder

These are the only ones I consistantly dislike. Sometimes I skip tracks on albums because I don't fancy hearing them at that moment but I don't hate them.

OUCH!!! I loooooooooooove those songs! Especially 'Nowhere Fast' & 'Shakespeare's Sister'. One of my favorite lyrics come from 'Nowhere Fast'. "when I'm lying in my bed -- I think about life and I think about death and neither one particularly appeals to me". Amen to that!

For me these are the I could most live without:

Meat is Murder
Money changes Everything
Work is a letter word
Skin Storm
Mexico
Dial-a-Cliche
Found Found Found
What's the World
Harsh Truth of the Camera Eye
Wide to Recieve
He Cried
He Knows I Loved to see him
edges are no longer Parallel
Journalists who lie

Yeah that is a great line, so true. But I just am not a big fan of the melody. What may I ask do you not like about Paint A Vulgar Picture? It is one of my favorites.

I'm not sure really. It's never done anything for me. I think some of the lyrics are a little cheesy and so is the melody. It's funny though -- it seems people either love or hate that song. I'm actually not a big fan of Strangeways. It's my least favorite album by them.

Interesting. I love that album, especially I Won't Share You. Don't worry about any objects being thrown at you. I am not that violent.

Thanks Leafs. Perhaps I'll keep my helmet on for now until the others are finished throwing their jagged objects.

P.S I do like 'I Won't Share You'. It's mostly tracks 7, 8 & 9 that I have a problem with -- the rest of the album is quite good.

i don't hate any smiths or moz songs, but here are some that i tend to skip a lot or am just not too crazy about:

1) the operation (can't get my head around that drum solo most of the time -- not a bad song though)
2) golden lights (the old stand-by. strangely, i know several people who love this song.)
3) the draize train (i actually really like the other instrumentals. i just find this one kind of boring.)
4) wide to receive (the title puts dirty thoughts in my head.)
5) pregnant for the last time (this along with golden lights are always on my list.)
6) asian rut (ugh.)
7) last night i dreamt that somebody loved me (i've already explained how i find it difficult to get past the opening sample.)
death at one's elbow (that was too easy.)
9) paint a vulgar picture (oh so ironic.)
10) boxers (in the words of homer simpson, Booooriiiing. Zzzzzzz.)
11) meat is murder (i may as well admit it.)
12) dial-a-cliche (like shooting fish in a barrel...)
13) interlude (much too maudlin -- even for moz.)
14) roy's freakin' keen ('nuff said.)

I can only assume 3/4 of this list is a joke right ?

Nooo! Al -- say it isn't so! That is such a HOT song. Makes me all tingly. Oops -- I've said too much.

I've already established that 1) Skin Storm is one of the few Moz songs that only manages to annoy me and 2) all the Moz-solo gals absolutely adore it. I dunno, I guess I like my Moz on the asexual side (It's like Wile E. Coyote always chasing Road runner and never catching him).

Also Paint a Vulgar Picture is one of my absolute faves. Oh well, can't win 'em all.

Ah ha! I was wondering if your name had anything to do with the Toronto Maple Leafs. I am indeed a Canuck. I live about 50 mins. from Toronto. Where are you? Canada as well?
I'm not a big sports fan, but my ex is. He watches every single hockey game. He LOOOVES the Leafs. Apparently, so do you.
