There's a chance (if only a small one) that we'll get to hear the first new Morrissey/Whyte song since 2009's Years of Refusal in just a few days' time.
So, a good time perhaps to reflect on one's 10 favourite Morrissey/Whyte songs to date.
Here are mine:
1. The never-played symphonies
2. Trouble loves me
3. When last I spoke to Carol
4. Sunny
5. First of the gang to die
6. It's not your birthday
7. Used to be a sweet boy
8. Certain people I know
9. A swallow on my neck
10. Nobody loves us

In no particular order:

Why don't you find out for yourself? (One of my favorite Morrissey songs of all time. I hope that they will play this live in Las Vegas and that Alain will be doing backing vocals! And that someone is kind enough to film it and put it on YouTube...).
Trouble loves me
When last I spoke to Carol
Life is a pigsty
Southpaw
The National Front Disco
All the lazy dykes
First of the gang to die
My dearest love
Something is squeezing my skull
 

Gregor Samsa

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
In no particular order (except for TNPS, which is always no 1):

The Never Played Symphonies
Life is a Pigsty
We’ll Let You Know
Seasick…
Trouble Loves Me
I Have Forgiven Jesus
Boxers
Ambitious Outsiders
Carol
NF Disco

Not a shabby collection of songs, right there.

Wow, this is tough! I'd have to go with:

Trouble Loves Me
Nobody Loves Us
Life Is a Pigsty
A Swallow On My Neck
First of the Gang To Die
Seasick Yet Still Docked
Used To Be a Sweet Boy
The Never Played Symphonies
Boxers
The Lazy Sunbathers
 

Gregor Samsa

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
I love it, but I couldn’t justify replacing any in my list with Boxers. And there won’t be many making a case for Ambitious Outsiders either. Nice to see a few mentions for Carol.
I honestly thought Boxers was a given among certain fans. Ambitious Outsiders I know is far from one universally loved, but I love it. It’s Scott 4 era Scott Walker, almost. Agree on Carol!

So far, my list is the best :p

Nobody Loves Us
A Swallow On My Neck
Glamorous Glue
Heir Apparent
Alma Matters
Life Is A Pigsty
I Am Hated For Loving
Seasick Yet Still Docked
Sunny
Whatever Happens, I Love You

We’ll Let You Know
