Handsome Devil!

What a wonderful title and it reminds me of how handsome Johnny was in 1984...

"Hand in glove", come on it classic for reasons I do not know.

"I want the one I can't have"
This pretty much sums up my life right now, its unbeliveable that those exact words seem so personal, and yet werent intended for me.

I've always taken it to mean 'a great fit', y'know, perfect relationship like a hand and a glove. But of course it could have another, more subversive meaning.

I always thought it was a variation from Hand in Hand, but I think elko is probably right.

What a gorgeous icon Jeannie, of course you know that title was nicked from Sandie Shaw - celeb magpie that Morrissey

oh and thanks for the info boys, elko that actually makes a lot of sense and I am suprised that I was spassy enough not to realise that one before....!!

'Please, please, please, let me get what I want' is my favourite title... The sort of thing you'd expect a small child to say and not a grown man. So pure!

And so do I -as I might have mentioned already here

Also Well I Wonder - sounds so beautiful to me; I even like to repeat it to myself again and again...It's a simple phrase in fact, but maybe the subtle beauty of the song itself colours the title as well.
