Sorry Brian May is not part of the modern music scene. His music and his profile in music is from a classic era. I just don't see how Lucy being released as a single would benefit anyone. Don't get me wrong I like the song. It's just not commercial enough. Let alone the demographic Adam is trying to reach, which is arguably younger fans. People buy the album the single is their, I Think that is enough. It doesen't need a chart life or anything, nor should it. The best radio singles on the albums IMO should be TOH, ALN, EITN, UG, Thing's I diddn't say, and The Light. But thats just my personal opinion.

I keep going back and forth on what song should be the next single . . . it seems to change every day. Love the idea of TOH . . . at one point ALN and EITN were contenders too. And Rumors is really growing on me. The Light and Heavy Fire are two of my favorites, but it doesn't look like they'll be singles. Who knows though. There are just so many good songs on this album, and I think I've come to the conclusion that I'll be happy and support whatever Adam releases next. Today I'm thinking that ALN might be the best choice, since it trended on the Billboard Twitter Chart, and it's one of my 10-year-old's favorites on the album. ::haha::

BTW, just putting this out there . . . if you think that Brian May is not part of the modern music scene, Paul McCartney recently did a song with Kanye and Rhianna.

That is true. And I understand that. But I guess it depends on the music I don't think they did a rock song, if I am wrong. Although Kanye considers himself as rock star lol. I agree on your choices. I Think ALN is the most favored by younger fans like me haha. It's a really teenage angsty song, kinda like stuff Lorde puts out.

Yes...I agree with you on going back and forth on the possible singles......

It seems that....TOH....EITN....ALN....& ...Rumors are the mostly likely....love them all ...

Really there isn't a bad song on this album.....

also agree with you on Brian & Paul still being part of the modern music scene....

Let's not forget too.... it was...James Taylor ...the kept Adam from the number one spot on BB's list ::rolleyes:: ::haha::

There are many...older legendary artists...that are still very current & influential in the music business ::thumbsup::

I am not pushing for ...Lucy to be a single....just won't be to surprised if it is released ...at some point....especially in the UK ::flowers::
It is what it is !!! It ain't that deep !!!!

Why would it be a single in the UK? Because of Brian May lol. Look I don't think May cares either way, he's had tons of hits. He just wanted to be on the album. If it does get released as a single, I won't complain. I just think it is improbable. I still don't think it is the demographic Adam is looking to target in terms of Top 40 Mainstream. Lucy is a rock song, just not commercial enough, but that is just me. TOH I think well be a summer single in Sept if released in NZ, Aussie, South America, and Asia e.t.c. Another case for TOH next single prob Sept. Is after the GMA performance it debuted #22 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Digital Songs Chart. So its the only one thats charted. So for me TOH then ALN or Rumors depends on timing really.

Your survey is about what we think should be the second single which may not be our favorite. How about a survey about favorites.... top1, top 3 or top 5. I could not check my favorite in your survey but what I think would make a good second single. But I am curious about everybody's favorites.

Some songs just grow into us... so favorites change. But by now we have heard the whole album and quite familiar with all the songs there.

Hi: I actually started putting together such a poll a few days ago ("What are your top four tracks on TOH?")---and it was one that would have allowed us to go back and change our choices if we wanted to---but then I realized that the set-up only allowed for ten songs to be listed. Damn!

Marie, my angel: Do you know if there's there any way I can override the poll set-up to give more than ten choices? ::tongue::

I think Rumors would be a great second single choice. Mainly because Tove Lo is so hot right now and the subject matter is so universal. I think the song would just take off. I also think ALN is just a wonderfully crafted pop song. I would love that too. I get why everyone is in love with TOH but in thinking of pure radio play I think the other two would do better.

Well, our poll has just closed, and the result was TOH by a country mile ::smile::

But here's an interesting thing: we had a group of mostly younger Korean friends over for drinks last night, and after playing them the album (which they hadn't heard before), none of them thought TOH would be a good choice as a single! Their favourite tracks were Another Lonely Night, Ghost Town and Evil in the Night---and in that order. In fact, they all started bopping immediately to ALN---it was love at first listen for each one of them.

Surprisingly, they weren't especially enthusiastic about Rumors.

So that's my snapshot from the land of K-Pop! I have to admit that for the first time I'm now wondering whether ALN might have broader appeal than my beloved TOH... ::thinking::

But the way GT is still gaining momentum on the radio charts---and even improving its position on the Billboard Hot 100 over last week (up five notches to #80)---I think we can safely say it'll be a good while yet before we even need a second single ::wootwave::

I agree re toh. I still think it could be a feisable choice for a RS. Its the only song thats charted on a BB Chart. Aln for me though. I love Ghost Town. I think Rumors can be perceived as generic, but for that reason should be a RS. Can see Radio playing it over and over.

Should be; Aln, Toh, Rumors

Prob be; Toh, Aln, Rumors

I'm so happy GT is doing well. I love that song. Don't shoot me but my hang up with TOH is I haven't heard a live version of it I love. It is a hard song to recreate live. Kind of like FYE I love the recorded version, never heard a live version I liked. Now of course we are talking radio and it is a great recording but I always envision the promo involved and I want him to knock it out of the park live. I freakin love EITN live and recorded. Rumors is a bit generic but it has really grown on me and their voices are incredible. I think radio would play it like crazy since it is catchy, angsty for the teens, and hot new artist collaboration. Really for me though ALN checks all the boxes...gorgeous vocals, universal theme people would relate to, deeper meaning than catchy hook, and an earworm on first listen.
