I vividly remembering my older cousins playing this album a lot in the mid-90s during their teenage years. A memory which would eventually go on to become my own teenage action. Yes, I moped around in my bedroom while doing Algebra II homework as Morrissey whined, and Johnny Marr’s guitar jangled out magic.

Description: When you listen to this collection of nearly all the noteworthy singles by the Smiths, you might marvel over the fact that Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr collaborated and cowrite so many astonishing tunes only to break up a mere four years into their creative burst. The first half of Singles is a relentless parade of top-notch emotional Morrissey punches. Then just when you think you're going to catch your breath, "Bigmouth Strikes Again" breaks out and the poignancy and wit of that charming man really hits home.

500 CDs You Must Own Before You Die! (500 music items)

"Arguably the greatest British singles band of the ’80s. From the sublime (“How Soon Is Now?”) to the faintly ridiculous (“There Is a Light That Never Goes Out”), these 45s remain some of the most intoxicating and original songs committed to vinyl. Standout track: “How Soon Is Now?”"
