*** Hand in glove gets extra points if you know it's at least partially inspired by Morrissey and Marr's early friendship. It was also the last song they played live, on "The Queen Is Dead" tour.

-->'''Morrissey:''' It was the frustration that I felt at the age of 20 when I still didn’t feel easy walking around the streets on which I’d been born, where all my family had lived – they’re originally from Ireland but had been here since the Fifties. It was a constant confusion to me why I never really felt This is my patch. This is my home. I know these people. I can do what I like, because this is mine.‘ It never was. I could never walk easily.

* "These Things Take Time", a lesser-known early Smiths song about a dying relationship, really packs it in.

when we sat in your room \\
they meant more to me than any \\
than any living thing on earth."

** At least at ''first'' now with bittersweet levels: Marr and Mozz did reunite while remastering the band's catalog of music and the two had some good chats and even thoughts on the Smiths reuniting in 2008. While it ''didn't happen'' and Morrissey ceased communication from Marr afterwards, Johnny admitted the two were at least on mutual respect.

** "Everyday Is Like Sunday" was a solo Morrissey effort, and arguably closer to NightmareFuel, but the point still stands.



* "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore." The final lines are particularly heartbreaking, which are layered over each other and repeated in increasing horror over the final section of the song: "I've seen this happen in other people's live/and now it's happening in mine/it's happening in mine!"

to:

** "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me" gets extra points for it's melancholic, minimalist opening, which seems to go on forever until it starts into life...

** Not to mention "Park the car at the side of the road/You should know/Time's tide will smother you/And I will too."

** Also in Morrissey's solo work, two notable tracks are "Late Night, Maudlin Street" and "I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday".

* "Never Had No One Ever", a song about sense of utter loneliness and alienation.

* "I Won't Share You" also counts.

Added DiffLines:

* The band's break up in general. Heavy CreativeDifferences and eventually a small case of PoorCommunicationKills caused the group to fold and since, they've ''all been bitter towards each other'', especially Morrissey and Johnny Marr. This makes it worse when you look at old pictures/videos and see how happy they were, to see it ''gone'' is heartbreaking..
** And then it reaches [[SarcasmMode better levels]] when you learn that the band has not, and ''will not'' ever reunite together. '''Ever.''' That's how angry they are at each other...

* "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore," which is based on an experience Morrissey had being mocked for his depression. The final lines are particularly heartbreaking, which are layered over each other and repeated in increasing horror over the final section of the song: "I've seen this happen in other people's live/and now it's happening in mine/it's happening in mine!"
