List Rules Vote for your favorite The Smiths songs, not just singles and hits.

List of The Smiths songs, ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. The Smiths are one of the most influential British bands of all time. With the partnership of Morrissey and Johnny Marr at the helm, they formed a distinctive sound and wrote classics like 'This Charming Man' and 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.'

Music videos are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this list. Is one of your favorite Smiths songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top. If the order of this list bothers you, then start a revolution and fight the system by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
