Morrissey’s Top 10 favorite singles that feature Morrissey as lead vocalist

Last month, apropos of nothing, really, Morrissey released a list of the 10 albums “of which I am most proud,” a ranking topped by his last three solo records — 2009′s Years of Refusal, 2006′s Ringleader of the Tormentors and 2004′s You Are the Quarry — and that relegated three latter-day works by The Smiths to Nos. 5 through 7.

On Tuesday, Moz followed up that list with the Top 10 singles of which he’s most proud, a ranking that once again focuses on his most recent output (“First of the Gang to Die” and “Irish Blood, English Heart” off his You Are the Quarry comeback top the list), while minimizing his Smiths contributions to just two entries (“Panic” at No. 5 and “Girlfriend in a Coma” at No. 6).

In fact, outside of the two Smiths songs and his 1988 fan favorite “Everyday is Like Sunday,” the list is comprised entirely of tracks from Morrissey’s 2000s-era releases.

Below, you can check out the full list, as posted to fan site/semi-official new source True To You. And in case you missed them, here are Moz’s favorite albums by Morrissey and/or The Smiths.

  1. I am missing here Siouxsie collaboration. although the selection is great

  2. He must be losing his marbles with age. There is no way that “First of the Gang” comes anywhere close to his other singles, let alone first choice.

  3. I just made a spotify playing of these, ordered from 10 to 1. :)

    hope this URL works?

  4. everything that he has done with The Smiths is untouchable…
