That said, I'm not sure if I see WAW as single material, either. I love it, but it lacks a hook or memorable melody for me, much like SWISLY.
Carrie hasn't released a ballad yet (I consider SYA more of a midtempo, tbh). I'm not sure what would work best, though.
But there are basically 2 ballads to choose from, since we know FC won't be a single, and I'd say between GIG and WAW, the former has a better chance of becoming a single.
Then again, I don't think ANYBODY saw SYA coming as a single, so they might surprise us again.
If I had my way, this would be the single order:
1. Good Girl
2. Two Black Cadilacs
3. Blown Away
4. Do You Think About Me
5. Wine After Whiskey
Alternates: One Way Ticket or GIG
I don't think there will be a 5th single. The tour is wrapped up.
Which stinks to me because so many good ones were left uncharted. This happens every album! I suppose we should be grateful for the massive hit 'Blown Away' became. It will probably be THE song when we look back.
I voted for Wine After Whiskey. I pray that it's the fifth single.
Blown Away was such a beast. Oh My God.
After reading your comments and the ONLY 2 options on the poll, I feel like I'm on my own here, but I'm going to say it anyway..... For me the next single should be ONE WAY TICKET, I see this song as a huge summer anthem, like LBT's "Pontoon" or FGL' s "Cruise", I really do!!! It's also something very new for Carrie, fun, relax, light... imagine the video, something totally different that could potentially bring fans from other genres. I love it!
So in my heart I'm wishing SYA go faster to the top so OWT can be release soon! But hey, in every Carrie CD I have a song that I see as a single, but never made it (that's why I', not holding my breath).
If the options are indeed the 2 on the poll DEFINITELY "Wine After Whiskey" is the way to go, this song is waaayyy better the DYTAM. I see WAW as more mature, more Carrie, more dramatic.... while DYTAM is childish on more Taylor-ish (Don't hate me for saying that)
This album should have many singles out, as long as there is no other album in sight, so I'm really hoping for 6: GG - BW - TBC - SYA - OWT - WAW, but this album is so good that it can hold even 8 singles easily, in this case GIG a CGAS should be considered!
For those with knowledge in this industry and how it works with singles and stuff like that here a few questions: Is this possible to have 6 or more singles from the same album? I know Shania Twain did it at some point, but in todays market is that a good idea? Dis anyone did it recently?
I want both. End of story. haha And Cupid too.
^^Do you guys think that we'll get a new album by May 2014, or is it unlikely?
If they go 6 singles deep this era then I want both DYTAM and WAW lol. But then I also want LLA and Cupid, so I'm torn lol.
I think a new album by May 2014 is highly unlikely. Carrie will probably be focusing mostly on TSOM this fall, and not really starting the new album until after the holidays (aka January). I think the earliest we'll see the next album is fall 2014 (Oct or Nov).
"Do You Think About Me" followed by "Wine After Whiskey". "Do You Think About Me" is my second favorite off of the album after "Blown Away".
The good thing about Carrie saying she's not ready for kids yet is we will surely get a new album in the next two years. I was afraid with her selling the house and wrapping the tour, now would be the time to settle down and have a baby. But from what I last read, I think in April, she didn't sound at all ready.
IF, and it's a big if, there is another single, they should do something fun. I thought Leave Love Alone would for sure be released as many times as she performed it.
I want "Who Are You" as the next single...ha..ha..ha...
That first cold September night...... GUYS DYTAM is a no brainer for this fall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please, let it be WAW! :'(
I want a poll for the fifth single like they do with Carnival Ride fifth single and I Told You So won.
