    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.

    Hand in Glove
    This Charming Man
    What Difference Does It Make?
    Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now
    William, It Was Really Nothing
    How Soon Is Now?
    Shakespeare's Sister
    That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore
    The Boy with the Thorn in His Side
    Bigmouth Strikes Again
    Panic
    Ask
    Shoplifters of the World Unite
    Sheila Take a Bow
    Girlfriend in a Coma
    I Started Something I Couldn't Finish
    Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me
    There Is a Light That Never Goes Out

    Not much interest in the survivor so I don't want to drag it + every time I do groups of 6, I cut off 3 (at least I think)

    I've decided to eliminate only two songs per group after all in this case, because the number of voters is so small that one bad vote can kick out a song. So "That Joke..." is back in the game.

    15. This Charming Man
    16. I Started Something I Couldn't Finish
    17. Shoplifters of the World Unite
    18. Sheila Take a Bow
