  • good lyrics. poor singing but not entirely without charm and dull as dishwater music. that's the wedding present for you
  • His Mark E Smith impersonation is a bit stalkerish.
  • The banal little things that make up love.
  • "I can't still be drunk at five? Oh, I guess I sort of can..."
  • Maybe the best example of Gedge's gift for simple concrete details and images. He never sings abstract rubbish about pain in his soul or something like that. Instead: "A stranger's hand on my favourite dress". Now THAT'S painful, right there.
  • my favourite song.
  • This is one beautiful song and it really speaks to all of us at some point in our lives.
  • still sounds great
  • Great two chord riff !!
  • that was my favourite dress you know?
