I was thinking about this the other day, and I don't remember if we ever discussed it. Which songs from Fire would you release as singles (besides Stuttering) and why?
I know for sure I'd pick It's Only Your Love, because it's a beautiful song, WO first got attention w/a ballad, and it would be a nice contrast to the more upbeat songs.
I'd also pick Do Me Right, because it's got the best of all three of them, and I think the best WO songs aren't just ballads or just dance, but a blend of the two. I think their vocal power tends to get lost in girlgroup/boyband choreography.
I'd release "Little Bit of Lovin'" b/c it would make a great video (think "Long Time Gone" by the Dixie Chicks and "Someone to Call My Lover" by Janet Jackson). It would have made a great summer song in 2001 b/c it was not like anything else released that summer.
For ballads, "It's Only Your Love" another great song waiting to be a video.
You Are Lavender You are a sweet person with a very soft personality. People become easily entranced with you. They seem to glow around you. You have a quiet energy that can keep you active late into the night. Even if you aren't the life of the party, you definitely keep the party going.
Hmmm, I'd release the whole damn thing for starters!...lol It's a shame that Fire never saw the light of day. Anyway, as far as singles go, I'd definitely release "Do Me Right", "Just Another Girl" and "It's Only Your Love".
I love "It's All Your Fault". I think that should have replaced "Stuttering" as the 1st single. That's my personal preference, the smarter business move (aside from releasing the album about 6 months before it was slated) would've been releasing any of the "JC Tracks" and capitalizing on his involvement. "Just Another Girl" would've been good. I think the ideal choice for a second single would be "It's Only Your Love", it is a beautiful song.
If everything seems to be going your way, you're probably driving in the wrong lane.
