"Stop Me" as written by Steven Morrissey and Johnny Marr....
Stop me, oh, stop me
Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before
Stop me, oh, stop me
Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before

Nothing's changed, I still love you
Oh, I still love you, only slightly
Only slightly less than I used to, my love

I was delayed, I was waylaid, an emergency stop
I smelt the last ten seconds of life, I crashed down
On the crossbar and the pain was enough to make a shy
Bald buddhist reflect and plan a mass murder
Who said, I'd lied to her

Oh, who said, I'd lied because I never, I never
Who said I'd lied because I never

I was detained, I was restrained
And broke my spleen, and broke my knee
And then he really lays into me
Friday night in out patients, who said I'd lied to her

Oh, who said, I'd lied because I never, I never
Who said, I'd lied because I never

And so I drank one, it became four
And when I fell on the floor I drank more

Stop me, oh, stop me
Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before
Stop me, oh, stop me
Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before

Nothing's changed, I still love you
Oh, I still love you only slightly
Only slightly less than I used to, my love

    General CommentSorry, but you're all morons if you didn't realize that Mark was a producer and DJ who never intended to make new music, but simply to revamp previously released records. He does a damn good job, too.

    This is a Smiths song titled "Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before" and the end takes part of the Supremes' "You Keep Me Hangin' On." No Kim Wilde here.

    Check out the video for the amazing "Oh My God" for a cameo from Daniel M.

    this is funny, really :)
    sad song tho
    think he is trying to find excuses for things he's done wrong. He can't break up with her.
    think it's going no where tho.
    if your relationship is this far, there's no going back.

    General CommentHmm... that's cool. I had a feeling these lyrics were familiar.
    That's pretty much what Mark Ronson is, though. A really cool cover artist.

    General CommentRonson is an awful artsist with no originality. He's just murdered Coldplay, Kaiser Chiefs, Radiohead and The Smiths on his new album. He deserves to be shot for degrading the name of Morrissey.

    General CommentWell, with me being a bass player and just typically a girl who appreciates music for the beats and such, I kind of didn't pay attention to the words. All I thought was, 'Daniel Merriweathers voice sounds really nice.' But the bass sounds cool.

    General CommentI love the energy and charisma in the song. And the video's not that bad. Daniel Merriweather is a talented singer. Its his voice that really made the song.

    Anyway, the last part where he says "you just keep me hanging on" gave me the impression that he was just in the relationship because he felt like he had to be, but not because he had feelings for the girl.
