Top Of The Fops...Morrissey lists his favourite albums and singles from his career

has taken the time to take stock on his recording achievments until now – something perhaps fuelled by his recent admission that “the follow-up to ‘Years of Refusal’ grows less and less likely” – to craft lists of the top ten albums and singles of which he is most proud of. As is natural with many artists, Morrissey appears to have favoured his more recent work, and it makes for interesting viewing how he ranks his formative Smiths back catalogue alongside the wealth of top drawer solo records he’s put out.
But what do you think? Do you agree with Moz?
Would you pick ‘That’s How People Grow Up?’ over ‘The Last of the Famous International Playboys’?
Do you listen to ‘Southpaw Grammar’ more than you do ‘The Queen is Dead’?
Here’s Morrissey’s lists, from fan site , and we hope you comment your thoughts on his top tens and add your own.

  1. About the only thing I agree with here is that Strangeways is the best Smiths album.

  2. i dont agree with alot of it but as a musician i can see how you can relate to you newer recordings but the smiths – strange ways here come and meat is murder are timeless albums and fill my top 10 albums of all time

  3. I was able to find good info from your blog articles.

  4. I simply couldn’t leave your web site before suggesting that I really loved the standard information an individual provide on your guests? Is gonna be again regularly to check up on new posts.

  5. Quran (4:104) – “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…”

  6. magnificent points altogether, you simply won a emblem new reader. What could you suggest about your post that you just made some days ago? Any certain?

  7. Definitely, what a fantastic website and informative posts, I definitely will bookmark your blog.All the Best!

  8. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  9. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  10. I dugg some of you post as I cerebrated they were extremely helpful extremely helpful

  11. Wonderful paintings! That is the type of information that are supposed to be shared across the net. Shame on the seek engines for not positioning this publish higher! Come on over and talk over with my web site . Thank you =)

  12. WTF is all this drivel written in the comments? Does this happen to all blogs now? Are there any real people out there?!
