So in general we can summarize these poll results as:
"The average opinion of the Pet Shop Boys fan is to replace any  
interesting song with a simple generic Pet Shop Boys song"

Why am I not surprised? Thank god these things are not decided by asking
a panel of potential customers which songs they would like on an album.
