21

Lost



Average score: 6.50
Highest score: Calum (7.5)
Lowest score: ...ready for it (5.0)



19=

Crazy



Average score: 6.67
Highest score: ...ready for it (7.0)
Lowest score: JosephStyles, Calum (6.5)



19=

Air feat. Astrid S



Average score: 6.67
Highest score: JosephStyles (8.0)
Lowest score: ...ready for it (5.0)

Finishing last place at #21 we have Lost, one of the songs released on Revisited, the deluxe version of the album, in 2015. The song isn't all that memorable and is definitely among the lower tier songs of Shawn's discography so I'm not surprised to see it finishing dead last. Just ahead of it in joint 19th place, we have Crazy and Air - two album tracks from the original edition of Handwritten. I'm surprised to see Air finish so low as that seemed to be 'liked' universally by fans. The feature from Astrid S is cute, and their voices really suit one another; although I guess it just doesn't quite reach the heights of his collaborations with a certain significant other! Crazy, I've probably always deemed the weakest album track from the original bunch of songs, but it is a nice listen when you go through the album from start to finish!

Never Be Alone



Average score: 7.17
Highest score: Calum (8.5)
Lowest score: ...ready for it (5.0)

Hilariously (although not a complete surprise given only three of us submitted rates in the end x), next up we have a FOUR-way tie for fifteenth place. Kicking the group off we have one of the bonus tracks from Handwritten Revisited - Act Like You Love Me. This, in my opinion, is probably the weakest of the new tracks that we got. It's a cute enough song in its own right, but when you add the likes of Running Low and Memories into the mix, it doesn't quite stand up the same. Bring It Back, I Don't Even Know Your Name and Never Be Alone also finish in joint fifteenth place. The latter two surprised me a lot. I Don't Even Know Your Name is such a revelation on tour, and is one of the strongest album tracks in general, while Never Be Alone seems to be a fan staple on tour, and one that's extremely close to Shawn's heart. It always has its own moment to shine and he takes the time out to remind or inform the audience just how special a song it is. Alas, it wasn't meant to be and it finishes quite low down on the list. Maybe it could have seen a boost had there been more rates.
