    Round 7: Blown Away vs. Thank God For Hometowns

    Perhaps the most unnecessary round in this entire game! Gosh, I wonder who will win: the stormy and compelling Blown Away or the sleepy and monotonous Thank God For Hometowns?

    Seriously, I will spit out my drink if TGFH receives a single vote. Hipsters.

    You're so bad allamericangirl8.
    You always let your skirt show (wink).
    I actually rather like TGFHT.
    Yes, it is predictable in the country genre. But her singing voice is just so good.
    OF course I went with BA. No comparison.

    I voted for TGFH. I love that song so much. I guess you can go ahead and spit your drink out, Nicole, because TGFH has 3 votes .

    I love TGFH too. If you're from a small town, like I am, you sure connect to it.
    With that said, I voted for BA. It's the best song on the album. I love them all, but BA has something special. It should win this game.

    ^ I think GIG will give BA a good run for its money. I hope WAW overthrows BA, though, because WAW is Carrie's best co-write to date (aside from TBC).

    Omg. I just realized that when I create Round 8 Blown Away vs Good in Goodbye, it'll be the day after I saw Iron Maiden for the third time!

    Nicole is so mean! TGFH all the way! Thank God For Hometowns is so beautiful and nostalgic. Although, I did vote for Blown Away just because the video is still stuck in my head

    Although, in my view, TGFH isn't one of the strongest songs on the album, I do like it.
    I don't find it "sleepy and monotonous" at all - though what I feel does rather let it down is the music. It comes across to me as neither traditional nor innovative, and not reaching much above a Mainstream feel. What saves the song, though, and makes it enjoyable for me, is Carrie's interpretation, and the imagery in the lyric. It's noticeable that Carrie can change her intonation to match the theme of the song she's singing - and in this one, she does adopt a rather more "down home" tone in her singing, which fits the theme of a return to the singer's roots. This type of song can get lost in a rather forced and phony nostalgia about rural stereotypes - but this one avoids that, and includes some effective imagery. I liked the tension in the contrast between not caring about going back, and the sense of belonging once she takes the plunge and does return. "The county lines that pull you in.."
    This song, I think, justifies its place on the album, as one of the "reassuring" choices that balance the more innovative (and sometimes darker) songs.

    However, once again, I'm voting for BA, as the stronger song - that has both more musical innovation, more demands on the singer, and a more striking and unusual theme.

    I love the lyrics. I just can't remember anything else about it right after I listen to it. It's just the definition of unmemorable for me. But I do think the lyrics are some of the best on the album.

    I don't hate TGFH, but it is definitely my least favourite song on the album. I can see why some like it, but I have never been able to connect with it, and I skip it every time it comes on because I find it boring. It's perhaps the only real "fault" I find in the BA album.

    I like TGFH, perhaps because I can totally relate to it. I grew up in a small town of 3,500 people, where everyone knew everyone. Then I moved to another state, and there were 300,000 people in the city. I enjoyed the bigger city and everything it had to offer. But, there's something to be said for the warmth, comfort and love one has to their hometown, such as I experienced.

    The reason BA is such a gem, in my opinion, is that there are songs that everyone can relate to, even if everyone can't relate to every single song.

    Shouldn't the original post usually be unbiased ? But I voted for BA of course.

    I'm completely unbiased. What are you talking about? Have you seen my other polls?
