There are so many. I think "Every now and then" and "Lomesome Dove" would have been big hits.N

Lonesome Dove - Hands down I absolutely love this song.<P>As Garth said at the Backyard concert... it's such an amazing song.. <P>It was written by a woman taking a man's view.. As Garth says.. That's just Simply Amazing! :D<P>JasonN

ALABAMA CLAY....I have loved that song from the first time I heard it......I pull out my first CD all the time just to hear it!N

05-13-2000, 06:03 AM
"This Ain't Tennessee" from the Box Set. I love that song! Not only did it not get released as a single, it didn't even make it to the CD the first time! It is one of the most beautiful songs I think I have ever heard and I was fortunate enough to hear him perform it live in Tampa, Florida. (When he finally remembered the words. LOL)<P>DonnaN

05-13-2000, 06:21 AM
Mine are<BR>- Please come to Boston<BR>- Kickin and Screamin<BR>- Rollin<BR>- Rocketman<BR>- Fit for a King<P>That's just a few that I can think of right nowN

05-13-2000, 01:47 PM
Seems to me that <B>"One Night A Day"</B> <I>was</I> released as a single...(or was it just that my favorite radio station had the <I>"In Pieces"</I> CD and the deejays just happened to like that song?)...because the first time I heard it was on KMLE108 right around the time that <I>"AHBA"</I> was being played.<P>My votes go to:<P><B>Walking After Midnight<BR>Every Now & Then<BR>This Ain't Tennessee</B><BR>and<BR><B>When You Come Back To Me</B><P>Y@nkeeN

05-13-2000, 03:24 PM
I do not think they were released as singles that you can buy.N

05-13-2000, 03:49 PM
fresh horses,<P>if i am not mistaken..the first single that garth released as a cd single was actually for chris gaines.."lost in you" i know i have this..i paid 99 cents for it the day it came out..lolN

Chris Gaines
05-13-2000, 04:12 PM
I thik everyone is talking about "Releases to Radio"<P>Garth has never released a "Single" (in the USA anyways).. except for "Lost In You".<P>He has released "Standing Outside The Fire" CD Single in the UK I believe as I do have this CD :)<P>Cheryl - Right Now .. was released hehehe :)<P>andI think "Against The Grain" was released as well... but I'm not so sure on that one LOL<P>"One Night A Day" I don't recall as being released to radio.. hmmmmm was it?<BR>I do remember him playing the SAX for it on "This Is GB 2" :)<P>This that make ya go hmmmmmmmm LOL :)<BR>JasonN

05-13-2000, 09:05 PM
You guys are leaving out the best one. Hands down its gotta be "Which one of them" from the boxed set. Can't believe no one chose that one!N

05-14-2000, 04:58 AM
Did he release a single off of Fresh Horses to? Because my friend has a single with 2 of the songs off of that album. I'm not sure which ones they were. N

05-14-2000, 02:14 PM
Jason, you're right, I forgot!<P>Fresh_Horses,<P>It's a promo given to radio stations, I believe.<P>Cheryl<BR>N

05-14-2000, 02:31 PM
Fresh_Horses<P>I know the songs "The Beaches Of Cheyenne" and "She's Every Woman" was released as singles in UK and Holland :)<BR>I have the UK one of "She's Every Woman" ;)<P>I also have the promos<BR>"New Garth Music" which is "She's Every Woman"<BR>and the promos<BR>"The Beaches Of Cheyenne"<BR>and<BR>"The Change"<P>Other promos released should be It's Midnight Cinderella", "That Ol' Wind" and "The Fever" :)<P>Atleast that's what I know of<P>BrianN

05-14-2000, 02:45 PM

05-15-2000, 04:42 PM
Okay lets see.<BR>I Dont Have To Wonder<BR>Face to Face<BR>The Old Stuff (I dont think that was released as a single) I think Every Now and Then was released as a single cause I think it was a #1 song for Garth) could be mistaken .<BR>Take the Keys to My Heart, Cowboy Cadillac, Kickin and Screamin, The Red Strokes, Bellawood, Same Old Story(should have been released as a single. One of the best)Could name a lot more but I guess Ill quit here.N

05-15-2000, 10:35 PM
First of all, why do people like <B>Lonesome Dove</B> so much? What does the song talk about?<P>I am sorry to admit this, but I never pay attention to that one :o I don't hate it, but it just doesn't catch me like every other song.<P><BR>Songs I love that aren't released are:<P>1. Belleau Wood<BR>2. I don't have to wonder<BR>3. Every now and then<BR>4. This ain't Tennesse<BR>5. MAIN STREET!!<BR>6. UNSIGNED LETTERS!!<BR>7. <B>When you come back to me again</B><BR>8. Alabama Clay :)<BR>9. Red Strokes<BR>10.How you ever gonna know<P><BR>TommyN
