The Smiths - Hatful of Hollow - ranked

Postby Positive Passion » 10 Feb 2018, 13:21

So I played hatful of hollow this morning.
Rank those classics (the list below is the running order on the lp):

William it was really nothing
What difference does it make
These things take time
This charming man
How soon is now
Handsome devil
Hand in glove
Still ill
Heaven knows I'm miserable now
This night has opened my eyes
You've got everything now
Accept yourself
Girl afraid
Back to the old house
Reel around the fountain
Please please please let me get what I want

Interesting choice for the top and nice to see how soon is now not overrated.

I have always loved What Difference Does It Make, in all versions. The Hatful version has such a great bassline.

There was a time when how soon is now was thought to be their best track!

I love it, myself. Always have. However, it’s not my favourite on the album.

That goes to Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now.
