Johnny Marr's guitar howls like a dying animal in the last minute - one of the best band ever's best songs.
Best song of the smiths lyrically and musically
The best of an incredible trio of waltzes with Please Please and Stretch Out. And as such, best Smiths song ever.V1 Comment

The greatest song about the music business ever
This song is haunting me. My favourite Smiths song, at the moment.V1 Comment
Not too long ago I heard this in my playlist and I just lay in my bed and cried for what felt like the entire night. I had that moment of really connecting with the song and somehow I don't think any type of popularity or greatness or whatever can beat that feeling of deepness so for me this is number 1
Just that opening sound, heaves like the agony of a broken heart as it tries to breathe, and then the vocals, like secret internal pain you shamefully hide, and yet Morrissey is so open and vulnerable. I die thinking someone might know they made me feel that way.
Christ, it's not even in the Top 20! Arguably the most depressing song by the smiths, that's saying something. It's truly a brilliant "sad" song. Scratch that, it's a brilliant song, full stop. Should be higher!
Can't believe this song is so sway from the top 10V3 Comments
It's like a slow dance at a prom but for the one's who never got askedV2 Comments
Very good. Prefer the 4 min version of this song then the 2 min
The most perfect 2 minutes of music I think I've ever heard. It's actually flawless.
A two minute Pop song that makes your head reel and demand for more.
The lyrics have humour, seriousness everything...
Come on guys, this should be on at least top 20.
Brilliant riff throughout, fantastic lyrics and a beautiful voice- what more can you ask for in a song?
Takes a al jolson line and turns it into a thing of stunning beauty unreal mike luke.
I think this song is the most romantic song I've ever heard, it's music is laced with such a lovely poignancy and the lyrics are so clever and bold, the double meaning of some girls being bigger, LARGER, overwhelmingly so than others-as Anthony said to Cleopatra. Stunning. The guitar work by Marr is as jawdroppingly good as This Charming Man but so much prettier, and the drumming! Magic, especially right at the end, where for the last two bars Joyce just switches to the ride cymbal, so subtle but so perfect. Hand me your pillow, the one that you dream on...Dream on.
This is the best I've never heard this type guitar riff. This song has best song in the smiths.
Wonderful song. Great message. My girlfriend actually stopped feeling so conscious about her weight when she heard this
Super catchy. The lyrics are rather strange
My favorite by far! This definitely should be in the top 10!V2 Comments
Fascinating song, I am surprised it hasn't already been mentioned definitely needs to be in the top 10
One of my favorites. Everybody's clever nowadays
This is an incredibly driven song which deserves classic status; sometimes it's my all-time favourite song.V1 Comment
