Very Good song....Boz can rarely do wrong...I wasn't impressed by it when I first heard it..but hearing during Oye Esteban grew my apprecation for both it and Swallow On My Neck...definitely one of the better b-sides...but not quite on par with Sister, I'm A Poet, Hairdresser On Fire, Girl Least Likely To and the lot of early b-sides..and a bit behind the masterpieces Disappointed, I've Changed My Plea To Guilty, Jack The Ripper, Nobody Loves Us, Lost, Never Played Symphonies, and Friday Mourning...

I love this song because Morrissey can truly have Both, he doesn't have to make a choice, he loves boys and he loves girls.
 
**8**

I'm becoming boring, I've been giving 8's at a high percentage lately..... Next one I'm going to be really tough.

You're reading too much into the song...

Morrissey Loves Himself...

This song always makes me smile when I think of Morrissey explaining it onstage: "That song was about ice cream. I can have vanilla and chocolate." Yeah, sure, Mozzer... One of Boz's best compositions along with a trademark funny/sad lyric. Contains one of the best double entendres in Moz's canon: "I'm not feeling myself tonight." 9.

Yer a homphobic douche bag,
God forbid Morrissey ever writting about liking boys too
Oh please..I could care less who or what Morrissey likes...

I just think it's stupid to just ASSUME that every or any song is about Sex....

Sure, It could be....

Or maybe it isn't....

Morrissey hasn't commented on the song one way or another....

And stop using the word homophobic, until you learn how to spell it.....

You're a disgusting Nazi. And you come on here way too much, collecting all my little mistakes, so I type too fast, and my hand slips. heh, shit.

As for my comment on the song, its called an OPINION. I can have my opinion on as many Morrissey songs as I want, whenever I want. and I can even post them on here, because I want to. Isn't that the point?
We all have our own views, stories, opinions behind all of Morrissey's songs, I assume that much, otherwise I'd assume you all to be dimwitted, in which case, coming from you, would be quite fitting. But who am I to take that away from you?

I never said you couldn't have an opinion.....

I just responded with my opinion....

That's such a weak response. Take that for an opinion. how disappointing.
I'm not going to engage in childish name calling with you...it's pointless...

This thread is several weeks old, and you dredge it up and started attacking me for no apparent reason at all...

It's also pathetic to defame me with such fallicious titles as "Homophobic" and "Nazi"....

They're all yours, if anyone deserves those titles, its you.

And to be honest, I just don't care for you one bit. I just get this really bad vibe from you anytime someone dares to challenge the sexual "side" or indecision of Morrissey, his songs, rants, interviews, whatever. Which is fine, do your thing, but I'm doing my thing as well.

Hope that's enough to keep you seated on yer bum tonight.
As for me, I'm going out :cool: ta ta.

Ok :rolleyes:

I really don't care what anyone says..or what anyone does...

You've just shown yourself to be capable of Defamation...anyone who doesn't agree with your viewpoint is "Homophobic", "Douchebag", "Nazi"...etc etc...etc...
