Maudlin st. - unqestionably his finest hour!

My guess at the six;
Dial a Cliche
Margaret on the Guillotine
Bengali In Platforms
I Don't Mind if You forget me
Ordinary Boys

And I couldn't bear to name another - I love the last two in any event.

I love the lyrics on Maudilin Street. I always grin when he says "but you without clothes, Oh! I could not keep a straight face, Me without clothes well the nation turns it's back and gags" Yeah right Steven! That's why you take off your shirt at concerts and roll around on rocks with a see through shirt and band-aids on your nipples in videos!! If Moz honestly thought he was "the ugliest man" would he act so damn sultry and sensual all the time! I think Morrissey has all kinds of pent up sexual agression that needs to be violently released. (which is why he's so sexy)

So do I. I don't mind if you forget me is one of my favorites. I love the lyrics on ordinary boys, They illustrate all too well people that live in my town and how I feel so different from everybody.
