    The Smiths A-Z: "Back To The Old House"

    Love those fret scraping sounds on the BBC Radio version. The b-side version takes me back to the summer of 1989 which was when I first heard that version via “Louder Than Bombs”

    The Smiths A-Z: "Ask"

    As others have said nice but lightweight. Loved the first time I heard bright summertime guitars, cheeky harmonica and funny lyrics.

    Morrissey A-Z: "You've Had Her"

    I think the “Certain People I know” b-sides were recorded separately and after “Your Arsenal”. IIRC Mick Ronson wasn’t well around the time of “Jack The Ripper”? Someone on here will know more or have a better memory.

    Morrissey A-Z: "You've Had Her"

    Thanks to all those involved. This has given me something interesting to look forward to every morning. As for the song it’s gentle enough without necessarily going anywhere.

    Morrissey A-Z: "You're the One for Me, Fatty"

    The NME criticised this when it was released for sounding like the Jam as if that’s a bad thing. Chiming guitars, Buddy Holly inflected vocals and a decent drum sound all add to the fun.

    Morrissey A-Z: "You're Gonna Need Someone on Your Side"

    The sound of those guitars! Play very loud and enjoy.

    Morrissey A-Z: "(The) Youngest Was the Most Loved"

    Love the sample at the start takes me back to being in Rome. The outro reminds me of “Bigmouth Strikes Again” for some reason.

    Morrissey A-Z: "You Were Good in Your Time"

    Nice song, not a particular favourite and sounds out of place on that album.

    Morrissey A-Z: "You Should Have Been Nice to Me"

    I can’t quite get to grips with the rhythm of this one once the drums kick in. Should at least have been deployed as a “Boy Racer” b-side.

    Morrissey A-Z: "You Must Please Remember"

    Sounds like a sturdy B-side to me.
  15. Southport Grandma

    Morrissey A-Z: "You Know I Couldn't Last"

    The guitars sound like something Mick Ronson would play circa “Ziggy Stardust”.

    Morrissey A-Z: "You Have Killed Me"

    Love this; guttural guitars and Italian personalities as short hand for emotional turmoil culminating in that swell of feedback.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Yes, I Am Blind"

    Not a favourite of mine but I can see why others like it.

    Morrissey A-Z: "World Peace Is None of Your Business"

    The intro is a bit of a mess but I like the song once it gets going.

    Morrissey A-Z: "(The) World Is Full of Crashing Bores"

    The phrase “crashing bores” also appears in the Kenneth Williams diaries.
