Is this the song they played live the most often?
Just occurred to me that it was the one early track which survived right through to the Queen Is Dead tour.
Most bands would have had This Charming Man as their encore but the Smiths weren't most bands!

Didn't play it regularly on the Queen Is Dead tours in 1986.

It comes in at number 2. Here's the number of times each Smiths song was played, in descending order. What works in favour of "Hand In Glove" is that it was often played twice per show during the band's first touring year.

Sadly they split before touring Strangeways Here We Come. That would have been a good tour.

A Strangeways tour would have been magnificent.
I wonder how Interesting Drug and other early Morrissey songs would have sounded with Marr.

Interesting. Wonder if Still Ill was played at the most shows? 22 is a big jump though.

I'd love to have heard The Smiths do Suedehead or Every Day Is Like Sunday, shame Viva Hate was Morrissey's first solo rather than The Smiths' last.
Interesting Drug isn't a great song in my humble, Playboys is better but not Smiths quality.

I agree.
But I do love Morrissey's call out, "Oh mum, oh dad" and the philosophy of once poor always poor.
I was just generally referring to those that Mike, Andy, and Craig played on.
I do wonder though.
But hey they're great the way they are.
Haha....
Imagine the Smiths having an album called Kill Uncle.

Shockingly bad album that.
Bought it off someone for a pound, played it twice i think, not worth the pound.
I'd gone off Morrissey by that point.

Really?
I mean I understand how Kill Uncle is viewed but I personally like it.
I mainly stick to Morrissey's first couple albums and You Are the Quarry.
The only song I really didn't care for was "The Harsh Truth of the Camera Eye"

Each to their own, i know i'm probably in a minority of one on here by loving The Smiths but not liking Morrissey solo apart from Viva Hate, and ignoring him as much as possible!
