now Ed Sheeran isn't the first example of album tracks becoming very popular, I'm sure some other artists would have had similar success... if people could stream them of course.

Oasis have quite a few of these

Champagne Supernova


She's Electric


Half the World Away


all three more remembered than quite a few of their actual singles too.

more recently, this Arctic Monkeys track

Mardy Bum


sold quite a lot of downloads for an album track, I'm sure streamers would have loved this also.

Half The World Away wasn't an album track, it was a B-side. And it became famous years later when it was used in the Royle Family so I don't know whether it would ever have had concentrated enough streams to go Top 10.

Sonnet was released as a single, although I think it may have been limited edition.

I think it charted as an import and wasn't given a UK release.

This could have been huge. Her first post JLP song, although Thank U might have suffered as a result.

other oldies
Pixies - Where is my mind
The Sundays - Here's where the story ends
The Stone Roses - I Wanna be adored/I am the resurrection, both were singles much later, not when the album was originally out

Oh #4 thanks

In the US a HUGE amount of hits weren't released as commercial singles. Uninvited was sent to radio to promote City of Angels (which it did, very well)

One of the greatest songs ever made, Elton John - Tiny Dancer. It was never released as a single and yet recently it's been certified Silver (200,000 chart sales), helped by downloads and streaming. Great thread btw.

"The Masterplan" by Oasis was a B-Side as well before it appeared on an Album (One of the B-sides on "Wonderwall").
They really gave value for money in those days!

Robbie's Better Man perhaps? I'm amazed that wasn't a single, and I'm sure he would have been a big streaming star back in his heyday.

Another example of an Album track that was an absolute classic that wasn't released as a Single when the Album came out ("There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" by The Smiths) in 1986.
It was subsequently released 6 years later after The Smiths split up.
The song has been covered by numerous Artists including (rather bizarrely) Miley Cyrus on a recent Tour.

I never knew it was only an album track initially. ohmy.gif

'Sonnet' was released as a limited-edition 12" single in the UK. I think it may have been officially ineligible but there were only 1000 copies anyway. It did indeed sneak into the Top 75 due to an import CD single so yes it's a fair bet that it would have been a significant hit had it been widely available.
Incidentally, I also have an import 7" of 'Here's Where The Story Ends'.

On the other hand, the Stone Roses weren't that big when their album came out so I doubt their album tracks would have made much impact.

Yes, It was one of those Live favorites that was very well known.
On reflection though I may be a bit optimistic thinking it would have got in the Top 10 at that time given The Smiths only had 3 Top 10 Singles in their entire career and their highest charting Single got to number 8.

I think it would f it had been the lead single (pre-album)
most of their singles in 86-87 went to 10 or just missed, considering this is their best ever by miles, I'm sure it would have made it...
