Ignore this if it has been brought up before, but what does everyone want the next single from Tape Deck Heart to be?

To be honest, I haven't bought a single since about 1999, but I was thinking in the car the other day that it would be interesting if a less obvious song like Tell Tale Signs or Anymore was released.

I thought back to this Billy Bragg Top Of The Pops performance and picture one of those songs having a similar effect http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjUA3RU4B8E

I've bin thinking about this recently. Would personally like Plain Sailing Weather as I think its the best song on the album but its probably unlikely due to the multiple fucks in the song but you never know. Personally I think it'll be either Loosing Days or Oh Brother I think they are the most radio friendly, although considering how popular stripped back acoustic music is at the moment maybe there's a possibility for Tell Tale Signs

I think Polaroid Picture could be a contender. Which I'd be happy about as I totally adore it.

I think it'll be Oh Brother, though I'd love Polaroid Picture, if only to see the music video to it, which would have potential to be brilliant

the obvious choice would be polaroid picture, however i feel it may be oh brother because as far as i'm aware i am disappeared never got released as a single on EKMB which seemed to be an obvious choice.

my mom is like crazy obsessed with Oh Brother. i always catch her blasting it and then she turns and says "MAKE HIM MAKE THIS THE NEXT SINGLE" ...because i apparently have that kind of power hahah but she loves it.
Losing Days would make a good one too i think

Losing Days would be the best choice, but I rarely agree with the choice of singles however Recovery was a fantastic lead single.

Polaroid Picture would be my best guess. But ive been also thinking...what if they release Four Simple Words as an official single :D. I think its propably IMO the most 'hit' song from the record and though it was released before Recovery it wasnt official single (or was it?). And it didnt get half as much press that Recovery got. Or thats my opinion/memory. Of course it would be weird to us fans, but general public wouldnt know a damn thing. I dont know. Losing Days would also be pretty good. The song reminds me of R.E.M., but thats propably just because I dont know any else/dont come to mind a pop/rock band that uses mandolin :D....

i'm almost certain Polaroid Picture will be a single ... 'let go of the little distractions' .... it has radio hit written all over it

My vote goes to "The fisher king blues". Singles don't have to be easy. Think "Bohemian rhapsody"...

My vote goes to Good and Gone.

I'm odd in that I don't like having my favourite songs on an album released as singles.

the conclusion of this thread is that the next single could be absolutely anything off the album!

"I am disappeared" might have been disqualified as a single because of its length and format.

Maybe this time "Plain sailing weather" will be disqualified because of the many "Fuck" it contains (hello America)?

I would vote for "Polaroid Picture", wonderful lyrics, big "sing along potential", plus this could offer us a great videoclip: sweaty small club shows at night, London skyline in the early morning.

I like the ending to Polaroid Picture, but for me, the song takes a little too long to get going.

Plain Sailing Weather is probably the best song on the album. If Rage Against The Machine could release Killing In The Name, then why not?
