I'd have to go with "I keep mine hidden".
Any other suggestions?

GOLDEN LIGHTS.
which isn't a Smiths song originally, so maybe that doesn't count.
Although... I have been known to enjoy that one in the haze of a stoned hour.

I really like that one!
Could do without the effects on Morrissey's vocals but it's a good tune and i always liked Kirsty's harmonies.

Well, I have to say that just because I said it's my least favorite Smiths song, the fact that it's the Smiths makes it much better than the best song by anyone else!

I hate to jump on the bandwagon but the whistle that starts 'I Keep Mine Hidden' really challenges me from the start.

True! That whistle is pretty bad. Upon listing to both songs in a row just now, I'm changing my plea to 'Hidden'.

That's a song i always thought sounded better live.
Quite like the guitar on it but the piano (i think it's a piano) ruins the album version.

Has to be said that that is pretty bad too.
Makes you wonder about Morrissey and Marr's state of mind when they recorded those two b-sides.

I'll have to agree with the statement that the album version of Meat is Murder is boring.
But the live version is very powerful. Then, everything is better live. I can't think of one Smiths or Moz song that I prefer the studio cut over a live recording. (listen to Kill Uncle, and then listen to the tracks live from the '91 tour. No comparison.)

I prefer "How Soon Is Now" on record.
Best version of "This Charming Man" is the Hatful Of Hollow one i reckon too.
I'd rather not listen to "Kill Uncle" if you don't mind :lol:

I prefer the version of How Soon is Now? from the dances with Octopuses boot from Oct. '86. Marr really pulls off some amazing riffs.
And I prefer the version of This Charming man from the Versailles boot from '84 (i think it's 84). I like that it starts with the drums and bass. My favorite bass line from Andy.
As for Kill Uncle, I don't blame you for not re-visiting, but the live versions of Our Frank, Sing Your Life, Mute Witness, King Leer, and There is a Place are great!

By a county mile their worst song has to be Accept Yourself. Just so hamfisted and badly structured. Whenever I hear it I think of the band you form when you're at school when you're around 14 or 15 and decide to write your first song together.
