Oh how I wish 'Be Alright' was released post Manchester, would have been quite the statement and definitely smashed, it's probably sold about the same as 'Focus'. Looking at her singles timeline, it would have been perfect to have 'Greedy' in March/April, then 'Be Alright' in June/July.

'Thinking Bout You' is also a stunner and I could really see it rounding off the era in the Autumn/Winter. It's likely the songs would not have hit the top of the charts, but would have been well certified by now.

Excited for the top 3? We'll be revealing them one-by-one starting tomorrow.

Wow at Thinking Bout You finishing above Be Alright! Very happy with that result, always preferred that one. I wonder how well Touch It would have done if that had won the wildcard round instead. And yep, the songs in the top three are no surprise at all but I'm still not sure what will win!

Surprised ‘Thinking Bout You’ is so high. Amazing song but I never really thought of it as a single.

ne.gif 03. Bad Idea (104 points)
Highest: Jade, Jack (12pts)
Lowest: Jordan Lee (0pts)


Apologies that this is quite early, I have work this afternoon until midnight, so gotta get it done!
Kicking off the top 3, a new entry, our first track with over 100 points, is this beauty! Charting well all across the world, it's hard to "imagine a world" where 'bad idea' wouldn't have smashed. It really goes off live! Sonically it's the most similar to anything that 'sweetener' had to offer, I often hear/see comparisons to 'no tears', which is what we all needed! A real catchy highlight from the album, 'bad idea' became a fan favourite instantaneously, with only 'bloodline' from the same album still in the game. It received full marks from Jack and fellow mod Jade, whilst Jordan Lee put it at the bottom of his list. Overall it received strong marks across the board. So it's 'Dangerous Woman' vs 'thank u, next', still in the game (the clearly superior albums), seems like this could be a close one! Who would you like to see on top? Our current reigning catchy pop treat 'Greedy' or the summer smash that never was 'bloodline'?

Yours Truly: 2/2
My Everything: 2/2
Dangerous Woman: 2/3
sweetener: 2/2
thank u, next: 1/2

'bad idea' really feels like the ultimate one that got away for me! She was nailing the trappy smash hits and I don't think this would've been any different. They may have had to cut off the outro on the radio (aka the Billie Eilish - 'bad guy' treatment) but yeah otherwise I'm sure it would've clicked with the general public. I can't believe it initially wasn't one of my ultimate favourites from 'thank u, next' - that quickly changed! 100+ points is a fantastic result for it here.

Bad Idea is brilliant and feels like the obvious choice for another sinlge of TUN to me.

Hopefully Greedy can beat Bloodline. Bloodline is Ariana's most overrated for me.

ne.gif 02. bloodline (113 points)
Highest: Tawdry Hepburn, Jonjo (12pts)
Lowest: Cameron (0pts)


Another thank u, next track drops out, also revealing our winner but we'll hear more about that later!

bloodline is the fourth track of thank u, next. The track opens with a soundbite from Ariana's grandmother, Marjorie, because she is the "matriarch of the bloodline." The song then goes on to talk about how Ariana likes someone, but not enough for them to be in her bloodline. Chart-wise, the song hit #22 on the Hot 100 and was close to charting instead of needy in the UK, but lost out due to the 3-track rule. Nevertheless, it hit #9 on the UK streaming chart.

You guys showed the track lots of love, with only one voter (shady Cam x) not giving it any points at all, while it had two 12s. It had six further 10s, two of which were behind our eventual winner!

Yours Truly: 2/2
My Everything: 2/2
Dangerous Woman: 2/3
sweetener: 2/2
thank u, next: 2/2

I really think 'bloodline' could've been a 'Side To Side' sized hit for Ariana! Can't believe she didn't do anything with it. That commentary has just reminded me about how close it was to charting in the UK as well, forgot about 'needy' getting two weeks and this not quite sneaking one drama.gif the new single better be good! kink.gif

Bloodline was honestly easily a huge smash. Such a shame.

arrow right.gif 01. Greedy (126 points) [01-01]
Highest: Juliano, Sailor Steve, sergejdordij98 (12pts)
Lowest: HausofTove (2pts)


And here we have it, number 1 - Greedy! I must say, this song was such a missed opportunity and should have been the follow up to Into You. The 80's disco funk infused pop track is so infectious it just makes you want to get up for a boogie. I'm physically obsessed with it.

Yours Truly: 2/2
My Everything: 2/2
Dangerous Woman: 3/3 gold.gif
sweetener: 2/2
thank u, next: 2/2

A worthy repeat winner *.* my favourite song on ‘Dangerous Woman’ for sure. That key change deserved to be heard by the masses

Greedy was definitely the ultimate missed opportunity! Would have been a brilliant choice of single and no doubt would have done well, glad we've ended up with the right winner!

Feels correct! Still can't be beaten, album track wise for me.

The right winner in the end for me.

Greedy was certainly one of the songs that got the biggest reception during the Dangerous Woman tour.
