This is the best Moz song since...

Trying to think. While I am not blown away by this song, I think it can clearly be called the best song he's recorded since anything on Vauxhall.

I mean, compared to his last singles - what - Dagenham Dave, Boy Racer, Alma Matters. This is easily better than those. Although, the sound is a little more 'Boy Racer'-esque than I would like.

I for one feel that this song, while boring to me in some ways, is probably a good choice for a single. I could see it get in to Radio rotation and have people (non-moz fans) get hooked on it.

I felt the same way about 'The More You Ignore Me' - I actually felt it was the most uninteresting track on Vauxhall, but it blew up as a single.

I have a feeling that's the angle they are taking here.

In any case, what I want more than anything in the world is a song with just one classic 'Morrissey' lyric that is as quotable as what he did in the smiths / early solo days.

He was full of so many word plays, truisms and ironies - That seems to have dwindled. I mean I want writing like:

Don't leave your torch behind
A powercut ahead; 1972, you know
And so we crept through the park
No, I cannot steal a pair of jeans off a clothesline
For you
But you ... without clothes
Oh, I could not keep a straight face
Me - without clothes ?
Well, a nation turns its back and gags...

Maybe the best single but the best song ? Trouble loves me is far better - wonder why it wasn't put out as a single

Wow, Phrenzy! I agree though, I had goosebumps during the entire song ( I had to get the twats at San Diego's 91X to play it) LOVELY

"Still running 'round
On the flesh rampage

short, funny, to the point - Sublime
"Trouble Loves Me" - Alone worth the price of Maladjusted any day.

> Hmmm, come to think of it, Wide to receive is amazing as well. Alma matters, Trouble, all better than this first single imho...

Irish though does sound as if it is on speed which is a nice change for the ol duke of kennsington

Re: This is the best Moz song since...WIDE

Well, I just loved the song! It sounds so good. It´s really on the vibe of "Boy Racer". But I think I prefer "The first of the gang to Die". I´m so curious to hear the album version of this song!
