Singles is the seventh compilation album by English rock band The Smiths, pitched as a compilation of previously issued singles. Its highest British chart position was #5. The cover features a design made earlier by Morrissey but previously unused, featuring singer and actress Diana Dors in a still from the 1956 film Yield to the Night. Blender magazine lists the album among the "500 CDs You Must Own" on their website.
Let's dive into the discography of this pretty well-known band that's iconic in the alternative circles and continues to influence new artists. I used to be a casual fan, so it will be nice to revisit their best known songs. The 18 songs will be split into three groups of 6.
