Thread: “Stronger Than Me”

  1. #1

    “Stronger Than Me”

    Thoughts? Personally, I think it’s the best song he’s released since the comeback.

    I just really hope it's not overdone on the album. I get that it won't be just Garth and guitar, but I hope they don't go crazy with drums, etc.

    For me, Whiskey to Wine was absolutely ruined on the album. The first time I heard it on the Sirius Radio Opry Special, I was blown away....then really disappointed with how it sounded on Gunslinger. I hope Stronger than Me stays light.

    What a song. The twitter reaction is incredible. That last line is powerful. Really interested in the studio version.

    It seems that Garth sometimes sings shortened versions of songs when he performs them live (Mom, MAM, BLLDAD), so I wonder if the studio version will be longer.

    I was crying way before Trisha was. This song will go down as one of my top 5 Garth songs ever, if not top 3.

    Soooo lets say that this song will have to grow on me. I found it a bit too sappy and cheesy. It reminded me of the mom song

    I kept hearing brief snippets of other songs (musically) in it.. I liked it- in many ways reminds me of my wife too...

    Yeah I remember that you hated Mom, and this is certainly in that vein. I'm curious, just to get better sense of who you are, what are your top 10 favorite 10 Garth songs?

    Has anyone heard the studio version of this yet? It's supposed to have hit radio this morning, right? and I thought he said on Studio G that Amazon would have it up today. Did I hear that wrong?

    While I don't think it is AS cheesy as Mom. I do agree with it being too sappy. I've always preferred his more subtle love songs. But I would like to hear the studio version before writing it off.

    They’ve only released the live version to radio and now to Amazon. Radio will not play a live single. I don’t understand what they’re trying to do with this.

    hopefully the studio version's not too orchestral or doctored up etc. I liked the 'him and his guitar' feel of this performance.. much more personal

    It's showing in my pre-order album but when I go to play I'm asked to sign up for Music Unlimited which is strange.

    It's not showing up in my album-preorder yet. Instead, it's only available to stream through Prime Music on its own. And there's not an option to download yet.

    Mine was also available only to stream. (thank goodness for *cough cough* appropriate software - problem solved)

    Edited: Actually, even though I hit download on the song, what it actually downloaded was a zip folder that contained only the 3 previous songs that have been released. So I still don't have the song. Seems like they're working on it though...

    huh- me too .. It showed up twice in music- under "pre order Garth Brooks' new album" and 'Garth Brook's new album"... only the one NOT in 'pre order' was available to download

    I hate to be in the minority but the song was just ok to me. I can listen to it but would skip over it for another song. Maybe if I heard it with orchestra and full song but honestly it was just meh to me.
