Hey ho let's go

Inspired by Spinner's list of the 25 Best Opening Lyrics, I noticed they overlooked an obvious candidate, The Smiths!

Here's a modest sampler:

"OH HELLO/ I am the ghost of Troubled Joe"

"Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking"

"A dreaded sunny day/ So I meet you at the cemetery gates"

"I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour"

"From the ice-age to the dole-age"

"Belligerent ghouls/ run Manchester schools"

"Mine eyes have seen the glory of the sacred wunderkind"

"All men have secrets and here is mine"

"The rain falls hard on a humdrum town"

How many of those songs can you name?
