Wine After Whiskey
Alright, so this is a huge, huge round! Blown Away, undefeated, 11 wins, all of that good stuff.....vs Wine After Whiskey!! Nothing more needs to be said on this. Vote for who you think should win, basically. Two great songs, either way. This should be exciting!
As always, I'm gonna hold my vote until the absolute end...Only shall cast it if I can make a considerable difference.
I honestly haven't made up my mind yet anyway...I am curious to see how everyone else votes, though.
Wine After Whiskey. I don't even need to type up an essay to illustrate why it's clearly the better song, and among the Holy Trinity of awesome songs on BA (alongside TBC and FC).
^Agreed! The part that makes the song is the very beginning. I love how it opens..it sounds kind of like a vibration at the start, which I think is guitar. But I'm not sure.
I have placed my vote for Wine After Whiskey. Not because I think one song is better than the other, but strictly because I have the strongest gut feeling that BA is still going to pull out on top at the end anyways...
Wine after Whiskey! It's the song I want to go to first....and last!!!
WINE AFTER WHISKEY
Wine After Whiskey is perhaps my most favourite Carrie co-write ever, or at least tied with Two Black Cadillacs. It's an absolutely flawless song! It needs to be released as a single!
Blown Away. WAW is good, but I don't get the huge hype around it.
Yeah. Its higher pitched than a guitar. I like how Carrie says 'after' in this song.
Wine After Whiskey. Pure Brilliance from one of the greatest female vocalists of our time.
Blown Away. The best song she's ever recorded. Such a powerful message.
It seems "Blown Away" does stand a chance of losing this round.
Not going to lie. I hated Wine after Whiskey when BA first came out back in May. I was obsessed with Blown Away the song- but for some reason Ive had Wine After Whiskey on repeat. I cannot get enough of it. Its my current obsession.
WINE AFTER WHIKSEY!
WAW has REALLY grown on me recently, but it hasn't caught up to BLOWN AWAY yet, so BA FTW!!!!
Omg! I knew it! WAW will win!
of course I went with BA. It is still Carries boldest statement (and personal artistic voice).
I put WAW on par (but not as good as) SDWISLY, which I believe to be one of Carries best recordings.
I'm gonna be mobbed for this, but I don't feel like the imagery of WAW works all that well.
The metephor is a little too thin for me.
BA blows the roof off the imagery department.
If ever I heard that "reedy" quailty that some critics accuse Carrie of having at times (which I rarely have ever heard) it would be during WAW in the second half of the chorus "...once you've tasted a love that strong, you can go back and you can't settle on.......".
I am being really nitpicky by the way.
It's amazingly sung!
But BA is still a defining moment for me with carrie.
And I'm not going to let WAW blow it away!
