What should be the next single?  I reckon We Believe, which may not be my favourite track on TCR, but would almost make a perfect Christmas record.

I think it will be "Small" or "Surf's up... School's out". Just my thoughts...[img=/images/smiley/msn/angel_smile.gif][/img]

I hope it's not Surf's Up.  In my opinion, it's the weakest track on the album, and probably one of my all time most disliked Queen tracks.

I'll be quite surprised if there is another single actually!
Theres been next to no promotion, so I suspect they're done already!

cwazy you could be right.shame if its true.we(me wife 2 kids)attended the secc concert and the kids loved it.as did i.but.there was limited advertising for the album.the single bombed.it's a shame because i thing that q+paul works live.maybe in years  to come we will realise that this trio would have made a great stadium band but maybe not album,or single,band.

Yeah, I doubt we're going to see another single. Ideally, I'd've chose Some Things That Glitter, but that's just me.

I think "Call Me" might be quirky and catchy enough to be a single. As others have suggested "Small", "We Believe", Some Things That Glitter" are possibilites as well.

Some Things That Glitter is the best song in the album, IMHO, but I am not sure if it appeals to Joe Public. I think "Soft" singles could be "Small" or "Call Me", and "hard" ones "The Cosmos Rocks" or even "Still Burning". On another note, "Surf's up..." could possibly appeal to the "alternative" public.

Cheers,

Is it really that big of a deal if there is another single?

Whatever it is, I would only buy it if it contained some interesting 'B' side(s).

Cosmos Rock is a great disc, indeed.

People here point four or five diferent songs that would be a next single!

If there does happen to be another single, then I cannot believe nobody has mentioned the best song on the album.

I really hope they release 'Time To Shine'.

Do you not think QP will be milking this for all it's worth?  Nothing ever stopped them before!  How many singles were there from MIH?  Must have been at least 5, all duplicates of album tracks (except HFE), with crap videos to boot.  I'm pretty sure the Queen machine won't miss out on a potential cash cow, by putting something else out.  Of course, there will also be the now obligatory live album and DVD from the current tour as well.  [img=/images/smiley/msn/teeth_smile.gif][/img]

Yes, I absolutely agree with you! It`s the second after C-lebrity. It should be a hit. Then for me it`s Say It`s Not True, Some Things That Glitter.
