For some unknown reason the non-album b-side to The Boy With the Thorn in His Side Rubber Ring/Asleep only appeared in its original form on the first issued 12″ and every version released thereafter split them into two-breaking apart the voiceover transition. The dichotomy between the two songs is a manic as the relationship between the rain and sun have been lately. Enjoy it in its original form:
The Smiths – Rubber Ring/Asleep 
The Smiths – Rubber Ring (Demo) 
The only thing better than the original 12″ Rubber Ring…the 1984 Demo of it. In close contention for being better than the final version. That guitar..
