18. Fly Here Now (5.83)



The lowest placer in the final is "Fly Here Now" - the first of many tracks from 'Echo' to appear in the countdown. Fly Here Now was a pre-order only track in the UK, however, it was included as part of the North America tracklisting too. It's a pretty weak song, imo, and definitely the weakest song to have made the final. So I'm not surprised and saddened that it finished in last place.

17. Shake You Up (6.64)



Darkchild penned "Shake You Up" from 'Glassheart' is next out and quite a big ahead of Fly Here Now. I think there might be a few people disappointed by this, since it received a few high scores as well as low scores. I think it's quite average, and certainly a lot worse than many of Darkchild's other hits. It's nice to hear Leona on a different style of track and works well on Glassheart as an album track.

Sad to see "Shake You Up" so criminally low!

16. I To You (6.75)



It's another 'Glassheart' album track up next! Like most of the album, it's another different sounding song for Leona and it was great to see her experiment a little more. This is very much album track material though, imo.

15. Strangers (7.19)



As we enter the top 15, we have the first song to pass 07 in the average and also the first unreleased track to appear in the countdown AND the first of two Ryan Tedder/OneRepublic features to appear. I know this is quite loved by the fanbase, but I think it's quite average. For an unreleased track which didn't make the final cut it's strong in that sense. But I think this is the right position for this song to finish.

You seem to have linked to "I To You" in your strangers segment April!

"I To You" is really nice, but rightfully placed. I really liked "Strangers" when it first leaked and feel that it had a lot of potential for just a demo!

14. Love Letter (7.28)



PerchedT now for an iconek Ultraviolence meltdown and let her comment on this song. tongue.gif Don't disappoint me UV. Personally, I'm surprised this finished so low. It's one of the best songs on 'Echo' for me and definitely single worthy.

13. Mr Right (7.31)



The only festive Leona song to appear in the countdown is this little festive gem. It's hard not to bop along with this, it's so feel-good and perfect for Christmas. It would've made a great follow-up single to One More Sleep if they decided to push another single. Personally, it's grown on me massively over time. Shame it didn't make the top 10.

12. How Everything You Are (8.06)



A gorgeous unreleased ballad - "How Everything You Are" next up. It's also the first song to pass the 08 mark in its average. I think this is around the right position for this, "Stay" is definitely the better of the two and rightfully is ahead in this countdown.

11. Stop Crying Your Heart Out (8.08)



Finishing narrowly ahead and just missing out on the top 10 is Leona's cover of Oasis classic "Stop Crying Your Heart Out". The song appears on 'Echo' and she also performed it on the X Factor Final in 2009 which caused it to chart in the top 40. It's a really great cover and interpretation of the song.

"Mr Right" is a jam. Wanted it to be a bit higher though!
"Love Letter" has such a nice vibe/feel to it.
"Stop Crying Your Heart out" is nice, but I feel they tried to recreate "Run" with it and comes off a bit disingenuous imo. I really do love Leona's voice on it though!
"How Everything You Are" is such a great song considering it's just a demo!!! wub.gif So innocent/sincere and Leona's voice sounds fantastic on it. Love the rawness.

How the hell is love letter so low!!! Tbh I only prefer run, bleeding love, happy, footprints in the sand and one more sleep from her discography. Unfortunately I was expecting it to be so low so sorry but no breakdown from me (especially knowing the breakdown could be like my 2nd forever is over breakdown which was a just beyond awful post!).
Shame though as love letter has such an amazing vibe to it and is such a standout heart.gif

Also devastated to see stop crying your heart out so low, such a beautiful song cry.gif

10. Scene of the Crime (8.11)



Just edging into the top 10 is the unreleased track "Scene of the Crime". This is perhaps one of her biggest 'should've been released' moments when considering some of the other tracks on the album. The song even has its own name sake poster! wink.gif

09. Stay (8.22)



Comfortably finishing in the top 10 is my favourite of Leona's unreleased batch "Stay". I know some find it a little bland, but I think it's just so beautiful. One of Leona's most touching songs and I'm gutted it wasn't included released on an album.

08. My Hands (8.25)



Two 'Echo' album tracks received the same average vote and My Hands is the lower of the two because it received less 11s. This is certainly one of the strongest from the album and it's quite hard to pick since 'Echo' is a very consistently solid album.

'Lovers'
10 | IsThisHappiness, Adam92, Ariella, hopehere, Casa

'Haters'
05 | Ultraviolence1989, Nick F1

which means...

07. Naked (8.25) - RECEIVED MORE 11s



Thanks to receiving 2 11s, Naked finishes higher in this countdown. Unbelievably, we still have THREE 'Echo' album tracks still to come in this countdown. With so many in the top 10, will one top the countdown?

06. Lost Then Found (8.28)



And we have another two 'Echo' album tracks next and both receiving the same number of votes. The first is Leona's collaboration with OneRepublic (the second to appear in the countdown) and is definitely one of the highlights from 'Echo'. It's classically Ryan Tedder and classically Leona.

'Lovers'
10 | Jonjo, April, Johnkm, Adam92

'Haters'
05 | Ultraviolence1989

which means...

05. Outta My Head (8.28) - RECEIVED MORE 11s



The second is "Outta My Head" which is often cited by fans as the 'Echo' lead single which never happened. It certainly deserved to smash and I imagine the era would have happened very differently with this as lead single. Outta My Head crashing out means only ONE 'Echo' album tracks remains in the countdown (compared to one 'Spirit' track and two 'Glassheart' tracks).

Them 4 should have been top 5 alone with 'Can't Breathe' sad.gif We should have had an all 'Echo' top 5. sad.gif But 'Take A Bow' is very deserving to be there too! I can't remember what else is left to come. I think TAB has this sewn up now that 'Outta My Head' is out (and much lower than I'd anticipated it being, I assumed top 3 was a shoe-in for it, if it wasn't gonna win!).

EDIT: Oh is the top 4:

'Can't Breathe'
'Come Alive'
'Glassheart'
'Take A Bow'

? That's a very solid top 4 in all honesty. I would like it to be...

01. 'Can't Breathe'
02. 'Take A Bow'
03. 'Come Alive'
04. 'Glassheart'

But I think it will be...

01. 'Take A Bow'
02. 'Glassheart'
03. 'Come Alive'
04. 'Can't Breathe'.
