The Smiths are made for Upstate NY. They’re introspective, a little bitchy, and they make you feel like you’re in on the joke.
If you’re driving around Upstate NY and you don’t know what to listen to, you can always count on The Smiths. I honestly can’t think of a single car ride where Morrissey hasn’t snuck into the mix, crooning about killing a DJ, a girl in a coma, or not knowing what skinny suit to wear.
One of the things I love about this greatest hits collection is that it’s named “Best… Volume 1.” Like this was just the start. Oh Morrissey, you crazy.
For some reason, neither iTunes nor Amazon offers the album as an mp3 download. ?? If you want to get fancy, you can buy the CD. But if you’re on the road, and you can’t be bothered with it, you can get the next “best” thing as a download here:
