Other bands/songs that sound like The Smiths?



Obviously the Smiths' sound was unique, but Johnny Marr's style and influences can be easily traced back to the 1950/60s, as well as Morrissey's vocal style and lyrical content.
Despite that, their chemistry inspired a new generation of artists after them and continues to do so. Would love to listen to some!

Please post your suggestions. (Songs that inspired Moz and Marr and songs that were influenced by Moz and Marr)

I've long been a fan of Liverpool 80's band The Room. Although they formed a few years before The Smiths, their final album 'In Evil Hour' has a certain early Smiths melancholy to it.
