Does anyone think the song Lightning from the Get Weird Album should have been given a video ? I mean I can't particualry imagine it would been played much on radio but a video for it would have been EPIC. Also supposedly Lightning was the part 2 to the song 'DNA' so I really think they should have made a moment out of this.

The live peformances on the Get Weird Tour SLAYED as well !

It's definitely not a single. I like the song though.

I like the song and it sounded great on tour, but I wouldn't have made it a single

Not as a single, but definitely a video, maybe as a promotional single. For me A.D.I.D.A.S. was a bigger loss as a single.

A.D.I.D.A.S. would've bombed as a single. I have a feeling that could've been a career hinderance to them. 'Lightbing' is amaze. One of my absolute highlights from their career, but I can't call whether it would have worked as a single or not!

Great song, but works better as an album track, can't really see this as single material, I think the 'Get Weird' era did fine as it was, but yeah a music video to this would have been interesting though.

I agree it's not a single, but comes alive on tour. Similarly to Down & Dirty, it's a bop but feels a little too dated to have been a significant hit in today's market.

Absolutely not for me. Besides 'The End', it's probably my least favourite on the standard edition of Get Weird. I skip it completely now if it comes on shuffle.

Honestly, their singles run for the GW era was perfect imo.

'Lightning' is my favourite album track on 'Get Weird' *.* and I'm sure they would have created a KILLER video for it, but otherwise I think it didn't really need to be a single and just works as a solid album track. We may have been deprived of a music vid for it but at least the live performances of it are incredible.

Lightning is less dated than Down and Dirty and I've grown to like it a lot. If it wasn't for the drop, it would have been a really good song. But no, they chose all the right singles for Get Weird.
