    Lightbulb Build Your Perfect Album!

    As things have started to get rather quiet around here these days, I thought that maybe we could spice things up a bit with a game I thought up today. The rules are simple. Using a process of elimination, you must pick one of the respective track numbers from each of Carrie’s albums to create your personal version of a Carrie “super album” of your very own! There are a few rules here. For starters, tracks 1 and 2 will have more options to choose from due to the Greatest Hits singles. Also, track 14 will have a few options more than tracks 3-13 as a few Carrie albums have more tracks than others. As the fourteenth track on Storyteller is technically the stripped version of Heartbeat, I have included LGDGUTF as an option in the final slot. If you guys feel the need, you may tack on a fifteenth track but the rule there is that it must be a studio-recorded song that has not found a home on one of Carrie’s studio albums (such as Remind Me, Somethin’ Bad, There’s A Place For Us, Ever Ever After, etc.). Any reasoning can be used to choose your tracks such as personal tastes, success as a single, or the overall flow of your chosen tracks. Let the games begin!

    1: Something In The Water
    2: Little Toy Guns (I can't believe I got rid of Blown Away, but I couldn't call myself LTG's biggest fan if I ditched it - RIP Blown Away).
    3: Church Bells (CB vs. TBC = Battle of the Century!)
    4: See You Again (as long as every live performance includes a church choir)
    5: Smoke Break
    6: Choctaw County Affair (sorry Crazy Dreams!)
    7: I Know You Won’t (Sorry BHC, LINLYA, and SLT!)
    8: Last Name
    9: This Time (Track 9 isn't a strong # overall)
    10: Good In Goodbye
    11: The Girl You Think I Am (Not that strong either)
    12: Mexico
    13: Wine After Whiskey
    14: Sometimes You Leave (I guess - I actually barely remember this song)
    Bonus Track 15: Is It Still Over? w/ Randy Travis

    Track 1:
    Good Girl
    It's hard to say goodbye to FOTF, but GG is probably Carrie's most adventurous vocal and musical track to date

    Track 2:
    Donít Forget To Remember Me
    AAG & LTG are non-starters for me; Carrie did more with Q than any other Country star has done with a Martin/Shellback co-write, but the experiment is not really my cup of tea; I'm probably one of the few who finds BA a good song, but a little overstated; DL is fun and an interesting album track - but DFTRM was, and is, a near perfect Carrie song, in terms of theme, singing, mood and emotion.

    Track 3:
    Two Black Cadillacs
    CB was the only one of these to push it close, but TBC wins, for me, on being more musically adventurous

    Track 4:
    Just A Dream
    A tough call between JTTW & JAD, but I think JAD was one of the songs that I truly think was unfairly snubbed - and I have to let Carrie have one of her power vocals on the album

    Track 5:
    Smoke Break
    No real contest here - SB is one I was waiting for, and shows a depth of commitment and empathy, as well as understanding of the genre's soul

    Track 6:
    Forever Changed
    I think this was the hardest track for me to decide on, with four of the five all having a very strong claim. CD is one of her best co-writes, personal, well balanced and musically interesting; CCA is innovative, and one of the strongest tracks on the new album; SWISLY is one of my personal favourites, that I could listen to forever. I nearly gave it to SWISLY - but in the end I went for FC, as a near perfect example of intimate and insightful mood singing. My personal view is that Carrie's own emotional commitment to a song becomes very strong, and she probably feels more comfortable when she can deliver that emotion with strong hammer blows of music and vocal bravura. On the quieter, more intimate songs, she may feel too absorbed in the feeling for public performance - but I think a vocal of this type should be on a representative album

    Track 7:
    Like Iíll Never Love You Again
    Another very tough choice. BHC was a career shaper, and a milestone. It probably deserves to be there - but perhaps sheer familiarity is unfairly squeezing it out. IKYW has a superb vocal, & SLT is "bad ass" Carrie at her raw Country Rock best. But I'm giving it to LINLYA - probably the best track on the latest album, and certainly, in my view, one of Carrie's most sultry, romantic, realistic and mature vocals to date.

    Track 8:
    Chaser
    Some not-so-strong competition here - but C is a deserved winner in my view. Many people do "Country Pop" - but seldom as successfully as this, in a song that maintains musical interest and genre loyalty, in what could prove to be a song that pushes the right buttons for many shades of preference among her potential listeners

    Track 9:
    Thank God For Hometowns
    Sometimes, it's a little hard to avoid the impression that, in general terms, the second half of Carrie's albums lack some of the excitement of the first few tracks. This is another not particularly strong pool, in my view, but I'm going for the generally under-rated TGFH (which Carrie has sung at the Opry, and said she wished she'd written). Less critical of the mixed realities of small town experiences than most of the current female new wave, it nevertheless captures the mood of nostalgia, in a song that is musically and lyrically well chosen, and beautifully sung.

    Track 10:
    I Told You So
    None of these are really top stand-outs for me - but Carrie should have one "classic" on the album, to show her links to an ongoing musical stream

    Track 11:
    Leave Love Alone
    BA contained a range of experiments, influenced by different Country Music styles (for which, I think, it received too little credit). This was one of them. Lyrically rather thin, it nevertheless scored for me on its music and exhuberant delivery

    Track 12:
    Cupidís Got A Shotgun
    This song has humour, good music, and an enthusiastic, endearing vocal. Why more wasn't made of it perhaps reflects the view of Carrie that her A & R team prefer to project. They probably know her market better - but I would want it on the album!

    Track 13:
    I Ainít In Checotah Anymore
    Several of these were closing tracks - where Carrie delivers a message that has a personal meaning - and is often quite different from the rest of the album. The earliest one is still the best, for me - and is a piece of Carrie's history that deserves to be included

    Track 14:
    Who Are You
    Some of my "skips" here, I'm afraid - but I'll go for the more experimental and probing WAY

    Extra Studio Track:
    Somethin' Bad
    I was very disappointed by this song when it came out - but I gradually warmed to it. Several factors helped - the photos of Carrie and Miranda laughing at Frank Liddell's production sessions, the incident packed and rebel-focused video, the use of Spencer Callum's steel guitar. I'd wanted something more musically hard core - but this went number one on HCS, and held it for more than one week, and obviously fitted the streaming and download market. As a duet, and as a reminder that radio isn't everything, I'd be happy to include it.

    OMG, track 1 was killer. Four of my favorites. Wasted, GG, FOTF, and SITW. I surprised myself on some of my choices, like keeping TH over Chaser.

    Great idea for a thread. I think tracks 1,2,5 and 6 were nearly impossible for me.

    Track 1- Something in the Water. I remember me being obsessed with Flat On the Floor when CR came out and I was originally going to pick that as the winner. Then I thought about Wasted and GG is probably my favorite Boy-bashing Carrie song she's ever released. The more I thought about it the more I felt that SITW was the right choice. Its one of the musically inventive, well written and emotionally invested song Carrie has ever released.

    Track 2- Dirty Laundry. This was a three song race for me between DL, BA and Don't Forget to Remember Me. Everytime I hear BA on the radio I go back to the moment when I first heard that song and it was such a gamechanger for Carrie. I'm happy that in between album cycles Carrie brought Don't Forget back into the setlist because I believe it is one of the best written personal songs for Carrie and I still get emotional when listening it. Like SITW, I think DL is perfect are delivery vocally is a standout and lyrics are clever.

    Track 3- Two Black Cadillacs. For me it was between this or Church Bells. I think they could flip places on any given day. While Church Bells is more catchy for me I do think the production in Two Black Cadillacs helps it win this round.

    Track 4-Just a Dream. I'm not sure at what point this song became underrated. It was nominated for a Grammy. I think it was foreshadowing of the future Storyteller Carrie would become. I believe it was Carrie's last song to be #1 on Billboard for multiple weeks until BA was released, but it seems to have been forgotten outside Carrie's fanbase. While I listen to Jesus Take the Wheel more I have to pick JAD.

    Track 5- Get Out Of This Town. Except for Undo It, I think any of this songs could win for me.

    Track 6- Someday When I Stop Loving You. Three song race between Choctaw, Someday, and Forever Changed. While Choctaw County Affair was the inspiration for Storyteller and showed that Carrie can give something different with each album, Someday When I Stop Loving You is still my favorite memory from the PO era and one of my favorite Carrie tracks.

    Track 7- Before He Cheats. This song is iconic, but besides that it really is one of Carrie's best songs and deserves its spot on it's own merits.

    Track 8- Chaser. This one was pretty easy for me actually.

    Track 9- You Won't Find This. I feel Carrie has two types of empowering songs. Songs that are meant to be empowering (such as change) and songs with a message that empowering. This song (and Chaser) I feel fall into that category. The strong self-assured woman in this song still makes it one of my favorite CR tracks.

    Track 10- Good In Goodbye. This was another easy round for me. Its not one of the stronger categories and this song delivers one of my favorite lines "I thank God I didn't get what I thought I deserved".. Very powerful a great moment of realization in the song.

    Track 11- The Girl You Think I Am. I just love the plain spokeness of the lyrics and Carrie's delivery of those lyrics. I love how she seems to get progressively stronger as the song progresses and becomes The Girl her dad thinks she is. LLA might have had a shot if there was more lyrically to it. It is a near perfect song for me.

    Track 12- What Can I Say. I remember the fan wars between this song and Someday both of which I think are the two strongest tracks on PO. I think Mexico is great too and Cupid is well written but I am pretty sure about this round for me

    Track 13- Wheel of the World. It was between this one I Ain't in Checotah and What I Never Knew. I think I'm liking the latter more with each listen so it might jump ahead but I just love Wheel of the World.

    Track 14- Sometimes You Leave. This was pretty easy for me. Love Carrie's vocal and the production of it. I'm not really fond of any of the others.


    The awkward moment when I realize I forgot about Wine after Whiskey for Track 13, but I still stand by my choice.

    Track 1:Good Girl
    This one was by far the most difficult. I honestly spent far more time than a person should've deciding between W, GG and SITW. I ultimately went with GG as I think it's the most musically exciting and adventurous

    Track 2: Blown Away
    Still my favorite Carrie song

    Track 3: Two Black Cadillacs
    I've heard this a lot on the radio recently and I've rediscovered my obsession

    Track 4: Jesus, Take The Wheel
    Really really tough choice between this and JAD. I think ultimately it was sentimental reasons that made me go with JTTW

    Track 5:Get Out Of This Town
    This song so should've been a single. CR had too many great single options

    Track 6: Choctaw County Affair
    It was tough between this and SWISLY; maybe the answer will change after a year or so

    Track 7: I Know You Wonít
    This song tho <3

    Track 8: Last Name

    Track 9: Relapse
    I noticed track 9 in general is pretty weak. I love Relapse, but I know it's not everyone's favorite

    Track 10: I Told You So

    Track 11: The Girl You Think I Am
    Even though I'm a man and I don't talk to my father, I always think about it with my mom (and when I sing along I change the gender of the nouns appropriately) and it always gets to me.

    Track 12: What Can I Say
    As much as I love 'Mexico' WCIS will always be one of my absolute favorites. I will always think of it as her most underrated song. I'm still baffled as to how it wasn't released. It would've done amazing!

    Track 13:Wine After Whiskey
    The clear winner. I don't think the other's even came close

    Track 14: Who Are You
    Probably the weakest grouping of songs
