Slicing Up Eyeballs, a website dedicated to ’80s college rock, recently polled its readers about the best Smiths songs. Site editor Matt Sebastian joins via Skype to discuss the results, plus we play a few of our favorites. Friend Bob Popik also shares his personal ranking of the Smiths catalog. Also on the panel: Bud Verge, Rob Gates, and of course, Jim & Patrick.
It’s an episode programmed by you, the listeners! This edition of Fan Mail Friday includes songs by Bonny Doon, Concrete Blonde, the Spice Girls with Echo & the Bunnymen (what?), the Lightning Seeds, Better Than Ezra and more. (There’s even a song about poo; it was bound to happen.) Our friend Adam Woodard joins in the fun.
