From The Maudlin To The Magical: Ranking Morrissey’s Finest Solo Songs

05.22.16 3 years ago

From his rise to stardom with The Smiths through to his enduring solo career, Morrissey has remained a true enigma whose heartfelt lyrics continue to ring true for old and new fans alike. (And that’s not even getting into his marvelous vocal style, a delightful, almost yodeling croon that still gives listeners butterflies after over three decades in the music industry). As iconoclasts go, Moz remains a beloved, if controversial, figure whose every move still has the ability to grab headlines. To commemorate his birthday, we’ve done an extensive re-listen of his output from his impressive solo career — spanning from the release of his 1988 debut, Viva Hate, to 2014’s World Peace Is None of Your Business — and chosen our picks for his 10 greatest songs.
