No problem. I just said that I wouldn't be making comments about it. It always comes back to this: managing my expectations. I don't want to hope for a single that'll never be.
Also, it's because you read so many different opinions everywhere, because everyone has a different favorite song or is convinced that this song or this other song would make the best single and in the end, it just ends up badly because people don't agree with each other on something they don't have any control over.
I see your point. If you want to take yourself out of the singles discussion, that's cool.
I've been singing CSA all day and I can see more and more how that would make a good single. So I agree with you, SleepinIn
. (That live performance of CSA from Charlotte was awesome,
by the way.
) I still like Alright With Me, as much as or more than CSA. And I actually like Written All Over My Face as another choice, to some extent. BWCU is a song I like a good deal, just not as a single, or, at least, not the second single. I think it has complicated lyrics, and they don't stick in my head even though I've listened to the song a lot.
ETA: The other concern I have is Top 40 vs. HAC. LLWD seems to be doing well in both markets. As you probably read on TWoP it has been featured as a top request on Kiss 108 in Boston (Top 7 At 7). This is great. Kiss 108 is Boston's Top 40 station and the most popular station with teens. Plus, songs on Top 40 just seem to get the most attention. Mix 104.1 (HAC) is also playing it, so it's getting exposure in both markets. I can see CSA or even AWM being that kind of hit, but BWCU could only be on HAC. I doubt Kiss 108 would play that song. Or certain other songs on the CD.
I would like to see his 2nd single be as huge as possible, of course. So I'd like it to be a song that is viable in both markets, like LLWD. Most of the time the second single does less well than the first. I'm hoping this one will do even better than the first. Of course, the first isn't done yet!
