"This Charming Man" [1983]
Two different videos were made for "This Charming Man", both date back to 1983 when the song was first released. The first one was filmed by UK television show The Tube. It shows the band playing the song in an empty room. It can be found on "The Complete Picture". However, the version of the song used for the compilation is not the original one. The original broadcast version used the "London" version and featured Mike Joyce's opening crash. The "Manchester" version of the song was dubbed over the footage for the compilation.
The other video is similar, but still uncompiled. It was used as a promo when WEA re-released "This Charming Man" in 1992. It shows the Smiths playing in a room with the floor littered with flowers and an imitation of the single's cover, with Morrissey gazing at his reflection. It was taken from the Riverside television program (7 November 1983) previously available on "Video Bongo", a compilation tape made available from the NME by mail-order only in 1984.

"Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" [1984]
A film made for "Heaven Know I'm Miserable Now?" was shown on the UK television show Earsay on 31 March 1984. The audio version of the song is slightly different to the one that was later released. The video is yet uncompiled, but the different audio version of "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" is on the bootleg cd titled "Asleep".

"How Soon Is Now?" [1985]
"How Soon Is Now" was put together by Paula Grief and Richard Levine for Sire Records (the Smiths' label in North America) without the authorization of the band. The video was fast becoming an important medium of promotion during the early eighties, but the Smiths just wouldn't give in to the record companies' pressure so Sire decided to do one on their own. At first the band was against it, but this didn't prevent the video from being compiled on "The Complete Picture". The version of the song used on the compilation is the European single fade-out version, but original promos sent to television in 1985 were put together using the American single edit by Phil Brown. The band footage was filmed on stage, backstage and soundcheck by concert engineer Grant Showbiz at a concert in Sheffield in early 1984. It was interspersed with stock footage of industrial landscapes.

"Meat Is Murder" [1985]
A clip made of footage of cows being slaughtered in an abattoir was produced to be shown on ITV's "Studio One" programme in May (or April?) 1985. This clip has never otherwise served as a promotional video nor has it been collected on some anthology at this point in time.

"The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" [1985]
A yet uncompiled video was shot for "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" showing the band miming to the song at RAK Studios in London where they were recording their album "The Queen Is Dead". This was supposedly recorded for UK television program Riverside. Director: Ken O'Neill.

"The Queen Is Dead" / "There Is A Light..." / "Panic" [1986]
The Smiths don't appear in this short film done by Derek Jarman. It was first shown at the 1986 Edinburgh festival and then before representations of the "Sid And Nancy" movie. This is found on "The Complete Picture". The segments for each individual song were used as promo videos. In the United States "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" was edited without the scene of the burning car. In the UK, on the first showing of "Panic" on "Top Of The Pops" on 31 July 1986, they edited "an element of bad taste" at the end of the video.
A different video for "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" was made by WEA in 1992 to promote the reissue of that song as a single. This new version used the footage of Morrissey and fans cycling around Manchester and Salford previously used for the "I Started Something I Couldn't Finish" and "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before" videos (see further in this list).

"Panic" [1986]
Another video was produced for "Panic" mixing footage from the Jarman film mentioned above with live footage from a soundcheck before the Smiths' concert at Ottawa's Congress Centre on 2 August 1986. This is also available on "The Complete Picture".

"Ask" [1986]
A video was also shot for "Ask", directed by Derek Jarman. As for "Panic", a second version was put together with live footage mixed in for greater public appeal. This latter version is found on "The Complete Picture". See further down for yet another "Ask" video.

"Shoplifters Of The World Unite" [1987]
Missing from "The Complete Picture" is an excellent video for "Shoplifters Of The World Unite", directed by Tamra Davis. It has prison shots from the movie "A Place In The Sun" featuring Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor and footage mostly from the Smiths' 10 April 1987 appearance on UK television show The Tube.

"Sheila Take A Bow" [1987]
The video to "Sheila Take A Bow" was also done with footage from their 10 April 1987 appearance on The Tube. It remains uncompiled to this day.

"Girlfriend In A Coma" [1987]
The video for "Girlfriend In a Coma" is available on "The Complete Picture". It shows bits from one of Morrissey's favourite movies, "The Leather Boys". Directed by Tim Broad.

"A Rush And A Push And The Land Is Ours"
Unfinished fan made video found on some bootleg video compilations. It supposedly was put together for an aborted Smiths exhibition using footage from the Rough Trade archive and the Alain Delon/Marianne Faithful movie "Girl on a Motor Cycle".

"Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before" [1987]
"I Started Something I Couldn't Finish" [1987]

Videos were shot on 18 October 1987 (so a few months after the Smiths split) for "I Started Something I Couldn't Finish" and "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before". The same footage of Morrissey biking through Manchester and Salford with a dozen or more look-alike fans was used for both. The fans were found through the Smiths Indeed fanzine. Morrissey's idea was to show Smiths landmarks around Manchester, with the fans riding behind him as if they were chasing him around. Both videos were directed by Tim Broad. The "Stop Me..." video is on "The Complete Picture".
This footage of Morrissey and fans was used again in 1992 by WEA for a new video promoting the "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" single.

"Ask" (live) [1988]
A video of "Ask" (live) was used as a promo for the "Rank" album. Directed by Peter Fowler. Footage is from two concerts from the "The Queen Is Dead" tour while Craig Gannon was with the Smiths. One of the two concerts is the actual Kilburn gig.

"I Won't Share You"
A previously uncirculated video for "I Won't Share You" was leaked on the internet at the end of 2008. It is credited to Derek Jarman, from 1987 but was supposedly put together in the early 1990s for a multimedia exhibition organised by Rough Trade which would have raised money for the Terrance Higgins Trust. The planning ended when Rough Trade went into liquidation. The video was therefore only half finished, it would have had band footage over-layed (like the "Ask" and "Panic" videos).



Oor magazine, Feb.87 (Morrissey, answering about pop promos): "I have never liked it. I never like any videos, and I just feel that if The Smiths could just slide along, or had just slid along without ever touching this world, I would have felt incredibly proud. But I suppose, to the glazed eye, that hasn't happened. Something precious has been lost and I don't think it was worth losing it, to be quite honest."

September 1987: "Of the Derek Jarman videos, 'Panic' was definitely the best. We never actually met Jarman - he did them privately while we were in America, which was absolutely the only way we'd agree to do it."
