I agree on We'll Let You Know, Michael's Bones and Smiler With Knife.
Shameful of me to forger the latter one in my own list as it's one of my favourites.

Once I Saw is a good shout. Feels like a real future classic.
Yes, definitely. In many ways it’s classic Moz, but ultimately feels new both lyrically and musically. And such a well composed song and lyric at that, in a way that’s sadly not that common for Moz anymore.

Classic, or Masterpiece?

classic is a perfect and/or early example of a particular style while masterpiece is a piece of work that has been given much critical praise, especially one that is considered the greatest work of a person's career. I think of a masterpiece as one that soars above the other great works Moz has given us.

Classic, Masterpiece, or simply a damn good song that you can’t (and don’t want to) get out of your head ?


It is a fine line.



Maybe there’s already been a poll or thread where folks are asked to list ten
Moz/Smiths songs that they can’t live without ?

Not an easy task.

I didn’t really think in terms of the thesaurus definitions. But yeah, one that soars above many others feel like a reasonable estimation. For truly great artists, there tends to be many songs that fit that description.

I think I might have started that one, or something similar,...but it was deemed too difficult a task...which it actually is.
I've kinda rephrased the question this time.
