Interesting thread. I think they nailed it on Bella Donna but really screwed up on Wild Heart. Everything else was ok.

Bella Donna - I agree with the order and selections of the singles even After The Glitter Fades. in 1981 country music was big on the pop charts and it fit right in.

The Wild Heart
Stand Back
If Anyone Falls
Enchanted
Nothing Ever changes
(note: Nightbird killed The Wild Heart)


Rock A Little
I Cant Wait - c'mon the album is RAL - lets rock a little
Talk To Me - but a different version
(I don't like this album so I cant go further)

Other Side of the Mirror
Rooms on Fire
Long Way To Go
Oooh My Love

Street Angel
Blue Denim
Maybe Love
Listen to the Rain

If I Were You & Ooh My Love should have been released. Not saying they would of been huge but they were singles.

If I Were You should have been the third single from RAL..it could have been a hit in `1986 no question..instead HAEWAFU was the first of her solo single to fail to hit the top 40.

I agree with you. If I Were You was radio friendly. HAWFY was too slow.

If I Were You is a very good song and could have worked as a single...albeit maybe slightly remixed.

HAWFY is a beautiful song but definitely not a radio single. Its for more hardcore Stevie fans. It was my gut belief in 1986 and 1983 that the 3rd single from both Wild Heart and RAL was purposely selected to kill the album. Almost as if, the tour is over or about to be over, we don't want to make anymore videos, the album already peaked, lets just release something and call it a day
Both Nightbird and HAWFY are deeply personal to Stevie. Its almost as if they were released for artistic reasons other than sustaining the life of the album. Most important is that it was almost impossible to have a hit song in the 1980s without a video on MTV. Clearly Stevie and her crew must have known the songs are not worth promoting.
What happened in 1989? Rooms on Fire was a hit and a HUGE video on MTV. The second single tanked...no video. Then the third single had a video. Not smart for a record company. Its clear Stevie was so out of it that she probably did not want to make a video or they could not wake her up long enough to make a video

Nightbird worked as a single. The other did not.

I know a lot of folks wonít agree with this but I believe they should have released Wide Sargasso Sea as a single. It may have needed to be cut down a bit but the end is truly rockin. I think it wouldíve been successful on radio.

I wish we could see the video for Wide Sargasso Sea, or at least it looked like they created one from what we saw of In Your Dreams promos/documentary. Itís not my favorite song but she looked amazing with those special effects/Fire, etc.

Not my favorite either but the miniature video was cool, and that ending is pretty good too. 👍
