Stephen Street, genius?

Stephen Street first rose to fame as the engineer and then producer for The Smiths, and subsequently for Morrissey's early solo efforts (circa Viva Hate). Street's wave of success continued with a string of well-regarded albums, most notably with Blur (many of whose albums he produced, including the mega-selling Parklife), as well as with The Cranberries, Psychedelic Furs, Sleeper and others too numerous to name.

Due to the frustrating lack of most of The Smiths' albums in Rhapsody (we should start a write-in campaign to Warner Music Group about that), as well as now out-of-print material from bands like The Darling Buds and The Mighty Lemon Drops, this playlist doesn't include some of Streets' best songs. Still, it's an impressive run.
