    The Smiths top 3

    Morrissey, lead singer of The Smiths probably have one of more recognizable and polished vocal in alternative rock genres. And it fits well with rock/electronic driven sound of the Smiths.

    Not in in particular order:

    1. This Charming Man
    2. How Soon Is Now
    3. Girlfriend in a Coma

    And of course Hand In Glove

    Tough one. Off the top of my head:

    1. Cemetry Gates
    2. Please Please Please
    3. Hand In Glove
    And the world will turn to flowing pink vapor stew.

    Wow...blast from the past...

    "Back To The Old House"
    "How Soon Is Now"
    "There Is A Light Tht Never Goes Out"

    Bonus: Morrissey solo track: "November Spawned A Monster"

    Here's a linky to the ever-caustic Noel Gallagher who, amazingly, has quite a few clever and nice things to say about the Smiths...

    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    Thanks guys and good selections. As Stone mentioned this was a tough one as they have so many great songs, especially with their first album.

    No list is complete without...

    ....

    There is a Light That Never Goes Out

    This Charming Man

    Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.
