Urgh, God, terrible. 5
 
10.

Man patinka, kuo keischiau, tuo geriau. Tuo labiau, kad ankschiau nezhinojau, kas tas pavadinime minimas daiktas. Gerai, kad yra video klipas, kuris, beje, yra visai nieko.
Viena tu dainu, kur man negaila truputi pakelti bala.
Nemirtingos eilutes:
"Well, she has now gone
from this Unhappy Planet
with all the carnivores
and the destructors on it"

Morrissey, tiesa kalba tavo lupomis;)



Visiems vis vien, man dar labiau.

I really like "Ouija Board" - even though I do recognize that it isn't technically the greatest of songs. The melody is unmemorable and the music is kind of awkward in some spots (though I do love the opening riff). However, I adore the lyrics and the vocals, and the video is brilliant too. I didn't think it deserved the horrible critical thrashing that it took at the time, but I don't think it's a classic either. I give it an 8.

I gave it a 9. Surely one of Morrissey's better Bona Drag era singles. The music is sort of quirky (as with so many songs after Viva Hate until Your Arsenal) but the vocals, as mentioned are excellent, and I do love the lyrics. A great song live as well.

i don't give that many 10's but this is one of my favorite songs. and my favorite morrissey video... i love when he falls of the chair! And the glasses, and holding hands with the kids! I can never in a million years understand why the song and video are so hated.
Its a timeless song about yearning to speak with an old friend who is either dead or out of your life. I love it!

oh this is a TEN!! I can't even believe you people. Amy, you are too young to vote, anyway. ;)

Weeeeeellllllllllllllllllllll, she has now gone from this unhappy planet
with all the carnivores and de structors on it

That line makes it a 10.

The first time I heard it I sort of didn't like it then it grew on me, once I got Bona Drag. I love it and I find myself highly enjoying the spelling part of the song and I do it everytime. It's cute and the video:D...well it's probably Moz's best one IMHO. I gave it an 8(8.5). Now that I hear it, it remind me of last winter sooo much.

Hear my voice...TEN! If you don't think so, then P-U-S-H-O-double-F :D

Who else could sing a song like this. And I used to dabble on the Ouija so... justified.

SUPAHSTAR!
The song wasnt bad but the video leaves a lot to be desired, no offence:p

when I listen to it, the part where he says "the table is rumbling" I can't help but act out the video, and put my hands up in the air all dramatic like I'm falling over and do my best Moz impersonation. um. i guess you just have to be there. :o

yeah the video is odd. and I didnt like the song at all, at first. It grew on me a bit, but I'm still only giving it a 7.

I don't mind it. I think the people that really hate it don't really like "silly Morrissey". They think he should be serious and important all the time.

You really need to film this (along with the dancing vid) and 'youtube' it for our veiwing pleasure:p
