    What an opener. [2] This is such a beautiful song. Morrissey vocals are just top notch on this track.

    15 minutes with you, I wouldn't say no. People said you were easily led and they were half right.

    Truly unpleasant song. Then again, I've only ever enjoyed "How Soon Is Now?" by the Smiths. I think life with Morrissey must be very tedious indeed.

    Woke up to this as my "earworm" this morning - maybe it is the "i dreamt about you last night and I fell out of bed twice" line...

    yeah, that "I dreamt about you last night/and I fell out of bed twice." is pure brilliance

    Yes the lines starting with "I dreamt about you last night..." are painfully beautiful and probably some of my favourite lines by Morrissey of all time - very poetic.

    people said that you were virtually dead, and they were so wrong.

    "You can pin and mount me--like a butterfly." I very much like this line.
