Weakest song on ROTT. I hated it first, but now I think it's ok, only just a 6 tough.

You have to understand that The Morrissey's don't really have a 1-10 scale. Their worst is about a 5. To get a 6 I have to dislike it and to get a 7 I have to have a hard time thinking of the tune when I read the title. I gave it an 8 but it might really be a 7.

He does like singing it though.

WTF?? people are actually giving this song a TEN?!!!
i know. it's almost beyond belief.

also: at the risk of actually thinking about a poll of fave pop songs, why do songs that steve should be ashamed of etc. still get points? surely, if some of his songs are so bad that they should never have been recorded, then they should score 0 or, better still, warrant a negative score.

today's song is actually worse than yesterday's and that's quite an achievement.

if Radio Berlin gives this song a 10, she's gettin egg in da face again!!
 
mmm, you lucky! i had them all ready for ya! :p ...i guess "lovemorrissey" is gonna get it instead! muahaha...
I think the reason for "lovemorrissey" gave it a 10, is in their username!

Actually @ the mo, i can't remember how it goes! I think i was ok, just an album filler, and an easy choice for a single, just released at the time because of touring and keep interest in the LP.

I was listening to the Smiths singles CD on sunday.....and i had a little voice in my head (don't worry it wasn't telling me to harm people) " he was better then". :o

i'm glad you said that, sir, 'cause i'd been thinking about it too. do you think morrissey is better than the smiths? what do other people think?

well, for me i can listen to half of Quarry & Ringleaders...the singles off malajusted, the rest of his solo stuff all the way through. My fav is Your Arsenal.
i don't know if it easy to say he is better now or then, his voice is better now and so is his apperance. May be, when he was in 'the smiths' he would write about subjects that were "from the heart" or so to speak! Not just writing about subjects, he has read about in a book or a newspaper article...the smiths lyrics were more personal and also you had Marr writing the music.

oooooh, below the belt! :eek: ...literally!
i aren't going anywhere below your belt young lady:eek:
