"Sunny" had initially been planned to appear on the "Boxers" single released in January 1995, and "Black-Eyed Susan" had at one point been allocated to be the B-side of "The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get" in 1994.

Jack Rabid of AllMusic described Sunny as "pleasant, breezy, jovial, and winsome, but the melody is not memorable." He expressed a preference for the B-sides: "As has been the case for Morrissey's whole career, the B-sides overshadow the A-side."
