Picking the Singles

By instinct really. The singles are the catchy ones that capture the band in its completeness in under 3 minutes. I to try give equal attention to all songs when doing an album. Yes the potential singles may get more attention but it depends. The single should be the simplest and easiest to get down really. What's an 'average' track? All the tracks should be great! Don't know what you mean by 'money' tracks. The band have got to like the song or you won't get anything done. Some bands don't have one single in a bunch of 12 songs... so you send them away to write one, or pick a cover, or re work a potential one they do have tucked away somewhere. Thats what the work is...
Cheers
