An easy ten, nothing that I would like to change with this song at all. Moz's lyrics are brilliant plus inventing a new word ("our unsleapable friend/get's the message on an ill wind"). Musically this also stands out from the rest of his catalogue, in a good sence.

A ring a ding ding
i know we all love Moz and The Smiths but voting 10 for eveything seems silly :p

Without question one of my favourite Morrissey songs. One of my favourite ever songs in fact. Its perfection.

I am quite liking this song but not really loving it.
Probly just heard it too many times over the years.
Those three 'Everyday is like Sunday' b-sides must be pretty much the strongest on any one single he's ever done.
Bring back Mr Street!
 

Your Arsenal

yes I am blind
Errr, this song sounds like its mocking the riffs from how soon is now?
Eitherway, lyrically this song is superb.
Musically, it sounds like a b-side of course. Good song, I give it a 9.

First time i ever touched morrissey was last night during Disappointed...so i have to give it a ten. But, to be fair, i would have given it a ten no matter... It's on my top five.

3 reasons why this song is a ten:

DRANK TOO MUCH AND I SAID TOO MUCH
AND THERES NOWHERE TO GO
BUT DOWN

and

Don't talk to me, no
About people who are "nice"
'Cause I have spent my WHOLE LIFE
in RUINS
Because of people who are "nice"

and of course:

This is the last song I will ever sing (YEAH)
No I've changed my mind again (aaaaw)
Goodnight
and thank you

HIM-full
An eight for me. It is near perfect, i think I voted harshly to be honest!

Bring back Mr Street!
More so, bring back Mr. Reilly.

He is the best guitarist Morrissey's ever worked with, alongside Johnny.

One of my all-time favorite Morrissey songs - and probably the best b-side he ever produced. The perfect concert closer - it didn't quite feel right when he put it in the middle of his 2006 Chicago show. I just love everything about this song - the lyrics, the vocals, the music, the humor. What's not to love? It obviously sounds a lot like "How Soon Is Now?" but I prefer "Disappointed" any day. This is the pinnacle of the Morrissey/Street songwriting partnership. Too bad it didn't last. A 10, of course.
