It would be fun if they pushed GAC and made a video. I'm hoping that there might be the chance of another band song.

I agree. If they don't they are missing a HUGE opportunity. If they could score Caitlyn Jenner it would get tons of press! It would also be a great if in the video all of the original band members end up in drag. It would be a great visual considering they are now old bastards and it would have a sort of "Baby Jane" look to it!

Also, now is the time for a full original band album. This album is getting rave reviews and it would be justice for the band to go out on top with a full reunion album. It seems they are enjoying this time together and why not take advantage of it and do a full album.

Wish Fireball would be the next single. It is a fast song that might appeal to those that like slightly heavier, up tempo songs.

Fireball is by far the best track on the album. I'd also suggest it's one of his best ever solo efforts.

"Fireball" is a good tune, but it's not single worthy.

"Genuine American Girl" is the song that most has single written all over it.

A Fireball video shot in b/w with only the Fireball in color would look pretty good. Maybe in a 50s comic book style.

Or...Alice covers the old band with white sheets while they play like mad men in front of a run down liquor store, whose sole employee is a human-sized, drunken rat behind the counter. Then, Alice fires a giant Roman candle into the establishment, blowing it to bits. Of course there would be backlash and misunderstanding from the general public - hey, that's how they built their career.

While I really like fireball GAG is the obvious choice. Singles aren't necessarily the best track (which is always subjective anyway) but the most likely to appeal to a wide audience, and that is surely genuine American girl.

GAG is very accessible indeed .
Fireball one of the best tracks. However, I had to have the lyrics to fully understand what Alice is singing.
Wonder if he could ever bring that on stage?
you really wouldn't understand..

I would love a video and a 7" for GAG. B-side some non-album track perhaps.
Maybe a 12" maxi with PPB and the B-side being a demo/unplugged version. Wishful thinking...

Fireball, but how about a double A side? The Beatles done this a number of times. :rock:

Fireball should be it in my opinion; but I agree with many of you and it will most likely be GAG.

Fireball has much the same vocal sound as on Spirits Rebellious, which Alice used to say he would play live, because it was (paraphrased) "made for the stage". Unless I'm missing something, that never happened. I think lots of songs are tried, yet they don't translate from vinyl to the footlights well.

Genuine American Girl on a 10" 3D picture disc. Something original on the B side.
