REVIEWS
Average points: 5.25 (Reviews: 44)
******
Einer der besten Songs der Gruppe um Morrissey. Sie hatten unzählige Hits. Dieser hier erreichte Platz 13 in England im August 1987.
******
... charming title, great song !!!
******
so eine happy melodie mit einem derart ernsten text zu versehen, das ist schon fast makaber...
******
Eines der letzten Lebenszeichen von Morrissey & Co. kurz vorm Split - die Melodie so zart - der Text gar hart !
*****
Typisch Morrissey & Co. Prägnant und bitter, # 13 in GB im August/September 1987.
******
brillianter Song
******
Brilliant ist gut ausgedrückt. Ein lobenswerter Song
******
Meisterliche Platte von The Smiths aus September 1987 !!! Super !!! Leider nur 3 Wochen (Platz # 37) in die Holländische Top 40 von September / Oktober 1987 !!!

Puber Pipo pass auf !!! Oder ich schicke Kluk Kluk !!!
******
Ja der Pipo macht es hier nicht so gut ;-<

Letzte erfolg in NL....... auf die Hülle steht: "Shelagh Delaney" .... sehr schöne Melancholischer song !
******
hat was, knapp 6*
******
Klare 6.
******
Aber sowas von! 6 Sterne für den Independent-Hit aus 1987. Haut mich heute noch um, starkes Stück!
******
Was für die Ewigkeit....
******
toll
****
it's ok
*****
Kann man sich sehr gut anhören.
*****
cool...
******
Kurz und pregnant, so muß Musik sein!
****
recht mittelmäßig
******
grossartig
***
öder gesang, gleichbleibende hookline, 08/15 musik aus den 80ern..
*****
Allein die - wie schon erwähnt - beinahe makabre Symbiose von Text und Musik kann überhaupt nicht 08/15 sein. Wunderbarer Song, natürlich.
****
Für mich etwas zu hoch bewertet.....

Sicher nicht schlecht, aber da hatten die Schmidts doch
noch viel besseres auf Lager.....
******
!!!
******
Unglaublich, jetzt erst durch "500 Days of summer" drauf aufmerksam geworden.

Hammermäßiger Wahnsinn, große Klasse! Bin begeisertttttttttttt
****
goede plaat van The Smiths
*****
"Girlfriend in a coma, I know
I know - it's serious
Girlfriend in a coma, I know
I know - it's really serious"

nahe gehender Song aus der zweiten Hälfte der 80er, instrumental knackig dargeboten - 5*...
*****
Der hohe Schnitt geht wegen mir schon klar. Doch ihr bestes Lied???
Definitiv nicht.
****
Okay
*****
Muy buena.
*****
Toller Song

Gibt's auch im Rahmen der Reihe "Ein Jahr und seine 20 Songs (SZ Diskothek)".

Geweldige plaat van The Smiths uit 1987
*****
sehr gut!
****
Buena
******
I really like this. A quieter offering without the normal vocal eccentricities that I'm used to from Mr Morrissey. It's nice. 5.5.
*****
Joli.
*****
Geht doch! Ein anständiger Song!
******
Quite hilarious. Such a tragically sad song to such upbeat music.
*****
Très jolie mélodie.
****
haut mich nicht vom Hocker, knappe 4 Stars
*****

...sehr gut...
*****
Wunderbar
*****
Wederom een goed Smith-nummer
*****
Einer ihrer schönsten Songs. War auch einer von 3 Hits die sich in den NL Top40 platzieren konnten.
