|Farin Urlaub singles chronology|
"Sumisu" is a song by Farin Urlaub. It's the second single and third track from his debut album Endlich Urlaub!. The song is a homage to the Smiths – according to the lyrics, Farin used to listen to them, when he was down. "Sumisu" ("スミス") is "Smith" in Japanese.
Farin portrays a vampire, who attacks a woman, supposedly in her home. The end is supposed to seem happy. Most scenes are on the basis of or adopted from the 1922 movie Nosferatu by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau.
The references to the Smiths in the video are:
- Farin plays the album The Queen Is Dead on a grammophone.
- The woman in the video is embroidering something that says "Morrissey San" (Morrissey is a member of the band and "San" is a simple title in the Japanese language).
- Later Rank is shown playing, although the cover features the title "Rankle".

- "Stein des Anstosses" ("Rock of throwing") – 5:43 (Family 5 cover)
- "Buch zum Lesen" ("Book to read") – 1:49
- "Sumisu" (Video) – 2:56
