more songs of the year

'Paris Is Burning', Ladyhawke
'Kids', MGMT

As a Smiths 'devotee', should I buy the 2cd version of the forthcoming compilation? Decisions, decisions. "Reissue. Repackage. Repackage. Re-evaluate the songs. Double-pack and a photograph. Extra track and a tacky badge." I wonder if Morrissey realised just how ironic those words would become years later in the light of the extensive repackaging of his solo back catalogue and that of The Smiths.
