It's not terrible (its better than Journalists Who Lie :p). It's actually fairly clever, I gave it a 6.
 
9.
*shrugs nonchalantly*
Bend me or fend me, I've heard worse songs by this artist. And if you think a little, All You Need Is Me is not that far from this opus - just on the other side of the wall.

I've always loved this one...and with Suggs backing remarks "Have You Seen Yourself recently?"....Very Tounge-In-Cheek...very clever....very witty

Can't decide if it's directed at Robert Smith (With your mascara....and your friendly guitar)...or a really silly old man (Mick Jagger)

SUPAHSTAR!
all i was saying was that usually a shrug indicates indifference, but you still gave the song a 9.

I also voted 9.
It's very funny. He should play it live more.
He's NEVER played it live...

Although in Pasadena on Feb 2 this year he did introduce I Just Want To See The Boy Happy" by saying "This Song is Called Get Off The Stage"

he should play it live more than zero times :p
I sort of knew that, but I wasn't sure becuse it sounds like a live-track

I like the lyrics.
Maybe he doubts that he's a silly old man now. Is because of this that he doesn't play it these days?

Would I be some sort of heretic if I said the latter is better than the former?
 

Well I Wonder

Gets a 5 from me. Solid "Meh" territory really.​
