What's the song that has the lyrics "I have been on your trail for six years" or something like that?

I'm a big smiths fan, but have to admit to not owning everything they've done.

As for album compilations, I'm surprised no-ones mentioned "Rank" yet, a great live recording.

I grew up with "best.....1" which I had on tape about the time when the stone roses were big (first time round), great stuff.

If I had to pick a track it would probably be "the boy with the thorn in his side" closely followed by "there is a light and it never goes out." Yup I'm a big "queen is dead" fan.

And to those who want to visit salford, I reccomend bringing a bullet proof vest. And thats coming from a Mancunian..........

Yeah, Rank is awesome, especially London and Bigmouth Strikes Again. Great to see Johnny Marr really shine in The Draize Train.

I have decided that Meat is Murder is my favourite Smiths record. The s/t comes close though.

I have been listening The Smiths and Morrissey so much recently after just getting into them. I had heard a few of their songs years ago and finally got around to getting some music on my iPod and I must say, what a band!

I think they are a kind of love it or hate it band though, due to Morrissey's unique lyrics and singing style, well, not unique but y'know like. My brother can't stand them and we have a very similar taste in music.

Also, Morrissey is playing near where I live tomorrow and I haven't the money to go, I'm devastated!

i really wanted to bump this thread, but it was already bumped.

i realized that even though The Smiths wrote pop songs, they managed to make it feel like the world was ending.

nah don't worry I think he was taking the piss. They are both mancs, and hey, there are some who have accused of morrissey of the odd bout of racism.

Amazing song. Actually not too fond of the Smiths apart from that, although I do enjoy the occasional listen to The Queen Is Dead. It's not that I can't stand Morrissey's voice, but the production on all their other albums always struck me as extremely annoying.

I'm just starting to like the Smiths. I would be listening to Slacker.com radio and some Smiths songs would come up and I couldn't stand Morrissey's voice, but after a while I think they are alright. I still don't much care for his voice, plus the fact that he does the same kind of things with his voice in lots of their songs, but Johnny Marr's guitar playing is wicked. I'll probably buy one of their albums soon.
