I'll take the easy ones off the table: the whole Strangeways album. Morrissey has added a number of songs from this disc to his solo shows.

Unloveable? Asleep?
Golden Lights? Work is a Four Letter Word? ;)
Interesting that they never played Well I Wonder. I'm surprised. Good fact.

Sorry, I think the closest you'll get is Wonderful Woman.
Unlovable & Asleep are soundchecked (with singing) on the 1985 0318 Before Love bootleg.

Unloveable was soundchecked but never made it to an official setlist (as far as we know), whereas Asleep was soundchecked AND performed as set-closer at the Eden Court in Inverness, on Oct. 1st, 1985, when the band came across a piano at the side of the stage!
Please Please Please was repeatedly performed live, in 1984 and 1985 as an abbreviated intro to main sets or encores, in 1986 with a long outro as per the studio version.
Pre-Strangeways, Oscillate Wildly, Well I Wonder, Golden Lights and the body of Rubber Ring are not known to have ever been played live. Same goes for Half A Person and Sweet & Tender Hooligan.

Ah, yes, I overlooked that one... lost in the transition period. I guess "Is It Really So Strange?", "Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others" and "Shoplifters of the World, Unite" were the last additions to gig setlists, right? And "Sheila Take A Bow" the ultimate addition to the live canon, but for a TV-performance only (The Tube).

I´m looking for that too, but I never see a recording of 4 October 1982 at Ritz, Manchester, and problably no one have taped this earliest Smiths performance, after this show the song is never performed live again :cry:

I have heard a 30 second clip of 'I Want A Boy For My Birthday' from that 1st gig, so it was recorded. The clip was made before Dale Hibbert (Smiths bassist for 1st gig) auctioned the recording. I hope one day the recording surfaces, it would be the ultimate bootleg to hear.
