I watch live and dallas with the sound down...

Ok I am kidding, I do think there is a certain charm when played live then. All that bouncing about breathless singing.

didnt cover it. used it as a title for one of their albums...
"fall out boy are driving your girlfriend home"

thats all i can think of when i hear this song"
It's actually called "Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend". And it's horrible. :p

As for the actual Morrissey song, hmm, well, it's not bad, definitely not bad. It's just, it doesn't really have much to it. Like all Kill Uncle lyrics they are a little sloppily-written (IMHO), but I do kind of like the meaning to the song, the meaning of the words even if for some reason I don't like the sound of them. The music is kind of pleasing, doesn't sound at all bad, it's just not that interesting or special.

SUPAHSTAR!
it is definatley one of the stronger songs on kill uncle...
youre damn straight it is! i frickin love this song. it reminds me of a specific time in my life, and in general all those awkward times a guy would drive me home from a date or something, and i wasnt sure if i should jump out of the car in fear, or sit there and look at him goofy until he had no choice but to kiss me.

So how did I end up
So deeply involved in
The very existence
I planned on avoiding?


haha i pretty much ask myself that at least 37 times a week...maybe less, maybe more...

im giving it a big fat 9
