No 'Mine' / 'Flaws and All' sad.gif

Don't even know what to go for here.. maybe 'Radio' or 'Smash Into You' which I enjoy but they doesn't really stand out as MISSED OPPORTUNITY. None of these really do, so I guess she tends to get the singles spot on (or you were just bad at selecting these cool2.gif)

I so wanted to vote for 'Freedom', 'Haunted' and '6 Inch' which are all 11/10 songs.

Went for 'Freedom' though due to it being my favourite Beyonce song of all time now.

'Blow', although 'Radio' would have been a close second.

I adore 'Smash Into You' (one of my Sasha Fierce faves alongside 'Disappear') but it doesn't scream a single to me, whereas take 'Broken Hearted Girl', which I like less so but can understand why it was chosen as a single. Similarly, 'Radio' is very good but doesn't feel like a missed opportunity. 'Scared of Lonely', however, does sound like a single but I wouldn't have replaced any of the first four main singles ('If I Were a Boy', 'Single Ladies', 'Halo', 'Sweet Dreams') for it so would have to settle for a later release, so it's not quite essential enough to get my vote from this list.

'I Was Here' is a gorgeous song. Incredibly powerful in its lyrics, presence and vocals. I would have had this as a single, either replacing 'End of Time' or following it and receiving a proper push when she performed at the United Nations World Humanitarian Day.

Neither of those BEYONCE tracks do anything for me. I only like 'Pretty Hurts', 'XO', 'Drunk in Love' and the Dave Aude remix of 'Partition'.

'Freakum Dress' is catchy but really we needed 'Ring the Alarm' (Freemasons mix) getting a worldwide push.

Which leaves both 'Freedom' and '6 Inch' - both of which I'd have had as singles and they're so much better than the album's weaklings 'Sorry' and 'Hold Up' that did get releases. '6 Inch' was always my standout but 'Freedom' has grown to become one of my favourites. I remember hearing it on Radio 1 when they had playlisted her whole album and it sounded SO killer and as if it was a new single getting played rather than just a 'randomly' chosen album track. So my vote goes to 'Freedom'.

I'm the complete opposite. I actually think 'End of Time' was one of the strongest songs on the album (along with 'Party') and screamed lead single more than RTW whereas I think 'I Was Here' is a weak link on the album. But I know it's a massive fan favourite and I've tried to get into it but I just can't. unsure.gif

It was tough to choose between 'Haunted' and '6 Inch' but went for the latter in the end. It runs circles around 'Hold Up' for instance and would be a fabulous single.
