Which songs do you think should have been released as a hit single?
It could be a b-side, album track or an unreleased song.

Breathe
Dancing Days
Alright Tonight
Sugar Coated
So Happy
I'll take everything

I agree with Dancing Days, Don't Go and I love Alright Tonight but there'd be so much editing for radioplay you'd never recognize it.

I'm with Trixie on 'don't go'...I think that would have been a great hit.

I also thing 'Freedom' and 'Dancing Days' would have been huge favourites.

Easy question for me: BREATHE! Definitely. There's no doubt I'd faint each time I heard it on the radio. Obviously, I usually almost freak out if I hear any song by James on the radio (I know, HOW mad... lol), but especially this songs makes my heart pounding like crazy!
And I believe Dancing days would be the perfect material for a great hit, too.

I'm hoping Shine On is the next single - it is so moving and James' voice is so emotional and heartrending.

Give Me Some Love

and some of the songs the rest of you have mentioned I haven't heard, but I think many songs have the potential to be hits IF they are actually played a number of times on the radio for a wide audience. It is amasing just how "cut throat and business like" the industry of music has been, when certain bands/vocalists are given preferential treatment and radio air play because of private 'arrangements' between record labels, promoters and artists. Which is hardly fair if you ask me if one believes in the adage that competition in any businesss is healthy and a must.

I think Butterfly and Don't Go would do well, but there would have to be some of that unfortunate editing...

I know it's not a JB original but I'd have to say "If There's Any Justice".

"Dear Katie" would have been a great single.


Spinning on my heels....so far away from real <3

Sugar Coated,
Fall At Your Feet

and I know it's never going to happen, but the Out Of My Mind demo version when James' voice breaks with emotion.

I agree, Dancing days is really great ! I would add the demo version of Out of My Mind, which is very fine too.

Two songs from the new album that should be hits, The Only One and Always Hate Me. Neither song is on the tour set list and most lightly won't be selected for single release. Which is a great shame as both songs stand out and would have been good to hear live and in the charts.
