The beginning of it all....

I wanna smack the people who gave it an 8...

That's blasphemy...

It deserves a 10 on principle....

To the album version, I prefer it to the one in Hatful Of Hollow. I like the one with Sandie Shaw too.
I know it's the beginning of the story, but I can't give it a 10 just because of that. It's a good song. They started very well and continued better.

Classic all the way, I love it so much. Agree a big fat 10.

lux girl

In Moz We Trust
Gave it a 9.

"H" is a good letter! How soon is now, Hand in glove, Half a person, Hairdresser and Heaven knows I'm miserable now.

Classics all!!

cmon people

its hard to beat a song with a line like;

the sun shines out of our behinds

& from his/their 1st single!

I remember when I took my copy of Hand In Glove for Mike And Andy to sign, and Andy says to Mike, "Remember what we thought when Johnny told us this was gonna be on the cover"....Mike gave a look of disgust...I nearly split my spleeen :D
