the Queen is Dead was my third album choice.
There are lots of good Smiths disks, but in my mind - and a lot of my friends - there isn't really a better one.
Sure sure - Morrissey sings about how lonely and miserable he is, but that's his schtick. You just have to roll with it.
I honestly tried to choose any other song from this disk than the one I did. Don't get me wrong, I think "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out" is one the top 50 best songs of all times, but that might just be me.
Not everyone want to hear a song about suicidal ideations with a 10 ton truck, but yet it is so beautifully done. Honest.
