Which song is much better live ?

Which Smiths/Morrissey song is consistently much better when played live ?

For me I much prefer the live version of "I know it's over" found in "Rank" over the studio version in "The queen is dead"..I also prefer "Jack the ripper" played live over the bland studio version.

Well , what about you ???

The live version of 'Jack The Ripper' definitely. Would love him to play that at RAH.

'The Loop' also sounds much better live.

Jack The Ripper sounds amazing live, but I've always wondered why he leaves the last verse out...

"Let Me Kiss You" sounds much better live.

We'll Let You Know. I prefer most of Your Arsenal live, actually.

Other than The Loop, I can't quite think of a studio version I prefer. And the Loop is great live as well, just not as rockabilly or... spectral.

Yep, all of 'em indeed. :thumb:

Pretty much all of them, agreed, especially the Kill Uncle material. I couldn't believe how different the KU album sounded after I saw the Dallas vid :confused:

The studio version of 'The Loop' DOES have more appeal to me for some reason. It's just so damned perfect. The clicky intro, the meandering bass -- ah! :D Great :)

Ganglord has big bollocks live.

First time I saw Ganglord live it nearly knocked me over. Or maybe that was the steep Apollo floor but yes, big bollocks. It's the Morrissey song live that says, 'don't f**k with me' more than any of them.

Except maybe, Don't Make Fun Of Daddy's Voice
