6. If a double-decker bus crashes into us,
to die by your side is such a heavenly way to die.

Yeah, I've had a real Smiths jones lately, for perhaps the first time in my life. I need help.

20. Since this is my favorite band....
I take this poll rather seriously.

Their self-titled first album was great. Really great, It is probably my second favorite, notable for the excellent Reel Around The Fountain, The Hand That Rocks The Cradle, and Suffer Little Children.

Overall, Meat is Murder is not their strongest album - though MANY would disagree with me. Some good lyrics on Nowhere Fast and Rusholme Ruffians, and How Soon Is Now IS a classic, but this one is not my favorite album.

The Queen is Dead has some great songs, and gets bonus points for the most excellent The Boy With The Thorn in His Side, Bigmouth Strikes Again, and Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others. However, for having the timeless and most necessary There Is A Light That Never Goes Out, this album is the clear winner.

Strangeways is a more somber album, but has some excellent tracks: I Won't Share You and I Started Something I Couldn't Finish.

Rank is a live album - some of the other bootlegs out there are much better... particualrly the Handsome Devils bootleg.

Winner: The Queen is Dead for overall album awesomeness.

I put waaaaaaaaaay too much thought into this. :)

25. Same here :)
Finishing up an exhausting but satisfying first year of my grad school program. We ended quite a bit later than other schools, so I was working pretty heavy into June.
Now, it's all about getting my net legs back in top form.

Good to be back. :)

48. I too voted The Queen Is Dead but I must be the only one in the world who
thinks its title track is the best of the album.

Farewell, farewell, oh, to this land's cheerless marshes
Hemmed in like a boar between arches
Her very Lowness with a head in a sling
I'm truly sorry - but it sounds like a wonderful thing

I said Charles, don't you ever crave
To appear on the front of the Daily Mail
Dressed in your Mother's bridal veil ?
Oh oh oh oh. Oh oh oh oh oh oh.
And so, I checked all the registered historical facts
And I was shocked into shame to discover
How I'm the 18th pale descendant
Of some old queen or other

Oh has the world changed, or have I changed?
Oh has the world changed, or have I changed?

Some 9-year old tough who peddles drugs
I swear to God
I swear: I never even knew what drugs were
Oh oh oh oh. Oh oh oh oh oh oh.
So, I broke into the palace
With a sponge and a rusty spanner
She said: "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
I said: "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry
And talk about precious things
But when you're tied to your Mother's apron
No-one talks about castration
Oh oh oh oh. Oh oh oh oh oh.

We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry
And talk about precious things
Like love and law and poverty
Oh, oh, these are the things that kill me

We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry
And talk about precious things
But the rain that flattens my hair
Oh, these are the things that kill me

All their lies about make-up and long hair, are still there

Past the Pub who saps your body
And the church who'll snatch your money
The Queen is dead, boys
And it's so lonely on a limb
Past the Pub that wrecks your body
And the church - all they want is your money
The Queen is dead, boys
And it's so lonely on a limb

Life is very long, when you're lonely
Life is very long, when you're lonely
Life is very long, when you're lonely
Life is very long, when you're lonely

21. Meat is Murder, but it tastes so good!
I voted for the first one myself because of memories of a certain hellish freshman year at college, but I gotta say Meat's probably the better album.

But progmom, you may still bite me :D
