    I don't have any clue why the band delayed the release of 3 to replace TWILY with Josephina. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] I think TWILY is by far a better song. It might have also been a good single. What do you think?

    Sorry, I like Josephina better. That's Why I Love you has really horrible singing and production. I believe that is why it wasn't released.

    Why they chose to replace TWILY with Josephina I'll NEVER know! That's Why I Love You was by far the best song they did with Gary, IMO. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    TWILY by a landslide. That's the best song Eddie wrote with Gary and it wasn't even put on the cd. Go figure.

    TWILY is a great song. Gary talks about why it wasn't on the album in one of the interviews we have here.

    I like TWILY, but I prefer Josephina. With Josephina, I love the way Gary sounds at 3.15 when he comes in after the solo. It's one of the few places on the record where his voice sounds right.

    Really, there's no reason why both of them couldn't have been on the album. I don't think for one second that having TWILY on there would have made a difference to the success of the album though.

    I agree with you Glenn, that Gary's voice sounds right on Josephina.

    CAN YOU SHINE THE LIGHT?

    It sounds like he has a bad cold on TWILY LOL! [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    I think the TWILY we have heard was a pre-production demo, coz it sounds terrible,particularly Gary's voice. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    Had it been recorded well, I think releasing it as the first single may have led to a completely different situation than what we have now. Hell, they mighta sold a few records with it!

    They should have deleted "How many say I?" and included both songs.

    I think that the song Joesephina is more well thought out, by far over TWILY. Having said that, I must confess, I enjoy listening to TWILY more (if this makes any sense) I guess because TWILY is much more catchier to the ear and has a better hook to hum along to....

    Did I make any bit of sense there?? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
