I thought it would be fun for us to vote for our favourite five tracks (in no particular order) on the deluxe version of The Original High. And recognizing that (if you're like me) your choices probably change on a regular basis, you can come back and change your votes at any stage.

Have fun, and feel free to discuss your choices on this thread! ::smile::

So hard. Changes all the time. I'm loving the whole cd. So surprised Ghost town doesn't have more love. I so love to sing along when it comes on the radio. Makes me happy ::banana::

This is the order in which I enjoy the songs. I gave a few equal credit as they are equally enjoyable ::grin:: .

1 The Original High
2 Shame
3 Evil in the Night
4 Another Lonely Night
5 The Light
6 There I Said It
6 Ghost Town
6 Things I Didn't Say
6 Underground
6 Lucy
7 Rumors
7 These Boys
7 After Hours
8 Heavy Fire

The Original High and Shame are my "can't listen just once" songs. 4-6 I usually don't re-play but enjoy singing along to. 7-8 I would say that they are the least relatable to me personally.

The funny thing about Heavy Fire, I find myself singing the chorus unconsciously (love the sound of Adam's voice in that part of the song) even though I had a hard time understanding what it is about. Thank you to the person on this forum who shared their thoughts about what it is about. That explanation definitely gave me a clearer view of what Adan may be singing about. ::haha::

I know this thread is about our favorites however, I think that The Original High would make the best next single. It is upbeat, unique and motivational. I find that the songs that are moving up the charts lately are mainly upbeat, love making, sexy, happy, motivational in nature. I think the Sam Smith, Adele lost love songs are on vacation at the moment. I love Adam's heartbreak, breakup, aching for love, songs but I think a song with a more positive subject matter would be enjoyed for the next single.

I do love them all (even Heavy Fire and Another Lonely Night, which are both beginning to grow on me), but I chose The Original High, Underground, Evil In The Night, After Hours (my absolute fave!), and These Boys.

This is tough - currently Things I Didn't Say the The Light are the ones I have to replay a few times in a row when driving to and from work. But I look forward to every track, including Lucy (except for the verses - love the chorus and guitar solo, though.)

Great posts, and very interesting results so far! So poor old Rumors is unique in not being in anyone's Top Five as of today... ::thinking::

Funny I always go back to TIDS and The Light too. Both potential radio singles. TOH is the only single that has charted though. #22 on the Dance/Digital Songs Chart. ALN could be a radio smash, it just cracked over a million plays on Spotify. MY favs though

1. Another Lonely Night
2. The Original High
3. Things I diddn't say
4. The Light
5. Rumors
6. Underground
7. Evil in the Night
8. Ghost Town
9. There I said it
10. Heavy Fire

But not much between them. ALN and TOH best radio singles. I like After Hours, These Boys, and Shame. But they feel like leftovers on the album tbh, could be big hits on Katy Perry's album. But just feel like afterthoughts to me. So deserve to be BT's IMO.

I like Rumors and Tove Lo, could see it as a single. It's just not in my top five.

But then, my pop-rock sensibilities have never been so main-stream. I like the quirky - would rather listen to Peter Gabriel than Phil Collins era Genesis. Back in my high school days, (nights?) I regularly listened to late night radio to 2am to hear everything free-form radio had to offer back then. Then got up at 6am to go to school, hs clubs including forensic league, competitive swimming, homework, and repeat.
Thanks to coffee and an ability to catnap on the trips between home and school and swim practice, I still managed to graduate high school as first in the class. Maybe listening to radio (Radio Gaga resonates with me - I had those earphone plugged in and listened in bed) was the relief I needed to cope with the rest of the pressure to succeed at school and sport.

Of course TISI is tops for me. I love also TB, Lucy, Rumors. Difficult to choose my fifth. And so I settled for ALN. I play the whole album, not only selected few. Now I am hearing Shame... now I want to change ALN to Shame... And there are times TOH would be tops for me... But the four stays there....

It's interesting that while There I Said It topped one early poll (elsewhere) a few weeks back, so far among the members here it's not even reached the top five (so far). Mind you, neither has Ghost Town! Curiouser and curiouser...

I'm very impressed, by the way, that the results of this poll to date have been quite different from those of our ongoing poll on choices for the second single. Clearly, everyone here recognizes the difference between a song they love and a song that they feel would be embraced by Radio ::smile::

Well, I think that Granberts would have TISI as their fav. TOH would appeal for all ages. The young (preteens, young teens) would go for the MOO. Lucy did not make it which is the top fav of Badass. And I thought it would be tops also for people here because of Brian's solo. Well, they might love it, but just not with the top 5. Yes, the results are not what I expected...

This survey is fun.

Well, "Lucy" may not be in the top five on our poll, but it certainly has fans in unlikely places: it's currently at #82 on iTunes in the Arab sultanate of Oman! Now there's a country in which a girl like Lucy might want to be careful about her recreational activities ::unsure::

Well, see, generalizations and stereotyping don't always work...."granberts" as well as the young ones probably like a variety of music....

I'm going to assume that "granberts" was said with much affection ::winking::

I am a granbert myself.... I know generalizations does not work but it is fun to speculate.
