Title: What should be next single off of Way to Normal?
Post by: Allison on December 02, 2008, 12:54:16 AM
I was thinking about this cause I saw that The Frown Song is doing loads better than any of the other WTN tracks on last.fm (as well as better than Annie Waits and Rockin the Suburbs)


So, which song do you think would do best on the airwaves?

The Frown Song is pretty good/catchy, even though I didn't fall for it immediately. It was the first Ben song I played on my radio show.

I think effington and kylie from Connecticut are the next best songs, but I think the frown song would do best for the radio

I voted for Bitch Went Nuts cause it's straight forward and therefore quite good for the radio, I think. And it's sounds a bit like good ol' BFF.

Whatever song is released as a single needs to be an actual single, no just radio promo crap.

I personally think he should make Free Coffee Town one.
Though it's not possible.
Or is it?

I can only shortlist...

Errant Dog
Frown Song (easy to edit those nasty f-words that offend those with a delicate disposition)
And yes, Free Coffee Town would be a good one too!

I'd love to see Cologne get a wider audience but I can't see it being a single.

I voted Dr. Yang, it's hard rockin' enough to get some air waves, and his vocal stylings on the track make it sound great for radio play.

Free Coffee Town is such a great song.  In a ridiculous way, but still.
In fact, I really loved some of the songs from the fake leak.  At the Dallas concert I was one of about 10 people in the entire house who was singing along word-for-word with all the songs, including the fake ones.  I probably should have been self-conscious or embarrassed or something... oh well.

On both places I started this there were several people who went; 'I want to vote for Free Coffee Town, even though it doesn't really count."

Iiiiiiiiiinteresting. I do f*cking love that song. I don't know whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. I wanna live in the bonehead version, kthnx.

I think 'Cologne' would have made a great Christmas single....but I guess it's a bit late to release that now!  ::)

As for the rest....not one really sticks out for me, although I do have a penchant for Kylie from Connecticut...... :-*
