6. 10
7. Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before
8. I have it as a b-side on a 12" of 'Barbarism Begins at Home" but that may be an import.
9. Work is a four letter word by Cilla Black, and I'm blank on the others. I do know them though HONEST!
10. Yes.

If I have fucked up my pathetic excuse is that I have had a long day, but it also shows I don't google the answers. *covers back*

C'mon then, give me both barrels!

The song that split The Smiths

The other two are 'Golden Lights' by Twinkle and a live version of 'what's the world' by James that was released as an extra track on a 12" release of Sweet and Tender Hooligan.

I've heard it before but don't think it's been released officially, in fact I think it was incorporated into Rusholme Ruffians when it was played live.

Further question about 'William It Was Really Nothing' - who was William? (we've talked about this on here before)

I thought it was Billy Mackenzie
Fin

Found this on Wikipedia.

The song is popularly believed to have been written by Morrissey about his short-lived friendship with Billy Mackenzie, lead singer of Associates. The compilation Associates: Double Hipness released in Aug 2000 included the song "Stephen You're Really Something" recorded by Billy MacKenzie and Alan Rankine during the Associates reunion in 1993 as a tribute to "William, It Was Really Nothing". Morrissey himself has said of his song:

What 'William It Was Really Nothing' is about is... it occurred to me that within popular music if ever there were any records that discussed marriage they were always from the female's standpoint - female singers singing to women: whenever there were any songs saying 'do not marry, stay single, self-preservation, etc'. I thought it was about time there was a male voice speaking directly to another male saying that marriage was a waste of time... that, in fact, it was 'absolutely nothing'.
