I'm tired and I want to go bed........

10.

Its quite uncanny how Morrissey managed to capture the very essence of M.E. in this song!

I love this song. I especially love the line “Don’t feel bad for me” because leading up to that line that’s exactly what you are feeling. I also love the Auld Lang Syne music box effect at the end.

I do too but I'd like to know, how do others interpret it? why auld lang syne? I don't really have a relationship with that song, the history etc.. or is it just because it fits?
it's a very beautiful effect anyway, kind of eerie..
