Morrissey – Ouija Board – Talk About Flashback!

WOW!  I had totally forgotten that this song ever existed!

I haven’t heard it in over 15 years and out of the blue Pandora played it in my mix and the memories came flooding back.  I played this song over and over again when my best friend Michelle was killed in a car accident when I was 16 (the year the song was released) and again when my only other best friend, Kris, was killed in  another automobile wreck 3 years later.

Of course back then I had it on cassette tape and wore it out pushing rewind, play, rewind, play until my finger was sore.  I have since replaced it with the MP3 version and listen to it fondly.


Lyrics Below

Ouija board
Would you work for me ? 
I have got to say hello 
To an old friend 

Ouija board, ouija board, ouija board 
Would you work for me ? 
I have got to get through 
To a good friend 
Well, she has now gone 
From this unhappy planet 
With all the carnivores 
And the destructors of it 

Ouija board, ouija board, ouija board 
Would you help me ? 
Because I still do feel 
So horribly lonely 

Would you, ouija board 
Would you, ouija board 
Would you help me ? 
And I just can’t find 
My place in this world 

She has now gone 
From this unhappy planet 
With all the carnivores 
And the destructors of it 

Oh hear my voice (“hear my voice”) 
Oh hear my voice (“hear my voice”) 
Hear my voice (“hear my voice”) 
Hear my voice (“hear my voice”) 
The table is rumbling … 
The table is rumbling 
The glass is moving 
“no, I was not pushing that time” 
It spells : s.t.e.v.e.n 

The table is rumbling 
The glass is moving 
“no, I was not pushing that time” : 
P.u.s.h.o. double f. 

Well, she has now gone 
From this unhappy planet 
With all the carnivores 
And the destructors of it
