The Charli XCX 'Singles' Poll

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

Seems like an appropriate time to do this. I'm only including songs as a LEAD artist. Included "3AM (Pull Up)" even though it wasn't a single because it was listed as "charted" on Wikipedia. Also, decided to include songs for which an official video was made. Apols if I missed anything.

none that i can think of xp

Still "Stay Away," will always be "Stay Away."

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 25 January 2018 22:24 (eight months ago) Permalink

it wasn't a single but imo "black roses" should've been

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Thursday, 25 January 2018 22:24 (eight months ago) Permalink

Same goes for "Explode" from the Angry Birds soundtrack, imo

daavid, Thursday, 25 January 2018 22:26 (eight months ago) Permalink

Anyway, It's "SuperLove" for me.

daavid, Thursday, 25 January 2018 22:28 (eight months ago) Permalink

Other, specifically "Valentine."

otm this is my jam

sentimental about "what i like", will prob throw it a vote

fave from awkward sucker era is doing it, i guess, but rly i just listened to gold coins a bunch.

stuff from pop 2 making a strong showing here imo, brooke candy or no.

i voted "stay away" but this is actually the correct answer

"Doing It" hive over here

Dilettante boom clap vote

i know kore-eda (or something), Friday, 26 January 2018 00:29 (eight months ago) Permalink

yeah i voted for that too

akm, Friday, 26 January 2018 00:40 (eight months ago) Permalink

"Doing It" without Rita Ora would have been cool.

billstevejim, Friday, 26 January 2018 01:02 (eight months ago) Permalink

lol i'm glad i got the album before they replaced that track with the ora version

dyl, Friday, 26 January 2018 01:05 (eight months ago) Permalink

yeah I have the Ora-less version too.

Van Horn Street, Friday, 26 January 2018 01:13 (eight months ago) Permalink

SuperLove gets my vote. "I used to think that the power of love was just a song, but now it's got hold in me" is probably my favourite lyric of recent years.

I wish she'd released Need Ur Luv as a single. It was supposed to be the follow-up to Famous, but after that didn't do anything, I think they/she gave up on the project.

kitchen person, Friday, 26 January 2018 01:15 (eight months ago) Permalink

What a run of singles. I prefer True Romance and Pop 2 (didn't get around Number 1 Angel yet) to the Sucker-era singles. Going with Out of my Head.

Actually the entire Sucker release plan is so bad. Boom Clap (which I love so much) feels out of place on the record, SuperLove is ditched for whatever reasons. Rita Ora makes an unwelcome appearance on Doing It. Famous, a good track, chosen over Need Ur Love and Body of My own as a single is also a head scratcher.

Van Horn Street, Friday, 26 January 2018 01:24 (eight months ago) Permalink

This is either "Stay Away" or "Boom Clap" for me.

Wish "Track 10" was a single; I'm pretty sure that's my favorite thing she's done so far.

cwkiii, Friday, 26 January 2018 04:55 (eight months ago) Permalink

I also want to vote for Take My Hand

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Friday, 26 January 2018 07:59 (eight months ago) Permalink

"Boom Clap" or "Nuclear Seasons" or "You're The One". I wouldn't even think of voting for anything after "Boom Clap", unless you counted "Drop That Kitty" which is an important song with an important message about where you have to drop that kitty.

oh, boy, .GIF! That's where I'm a Viking! (edwardo), Friday, 26 January 2018 09:33 (eight months ago) Permalink

best: Doing It followed by SuperLove
worst: After the Afterparty and Break the Rules

releases:
Pop 2
True Romance
Number 1 Angel
Sucker
Vroom Vroom
don't remember anything about the pre-True Romance stuff

ufo, Friday, 26 January 2018 10:45 (eight months ago) Permalink

i like sucker better than true romance ie. gold coins, famous, boom clap, breaking up, doing it. and of course the aforementioned body of my own. i also love hangin around, sue me

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ "okay let's rock"

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Friday, 26 January 2018 13:06 (eight months ago) Permalink

if "hangin around" had come out when i was in my 20s in new york it would have been played at Motherfucker and i would have freaked out every time.

my personal "why wasn't this a single" is Set Me Free

algorithm is a dancer (katherine), Friday, 26 January 2018 15:25 (eight months ago) Permalink

ILY2 should be a single too.

Man what a run of great songs.

Van Horn Street, Friday, 26 January 2018 23:14 (eight months ago) Permalink

Where’s ‘Kingdom’? (Or am I missing sthg about it?) That would be my pick.

Max Florian, Wednesday, 31 January 2018 19:31 (eight months ago) Permalink

Not listed as a single on Wikipedia. Also, there was no official video for it, afaik.
