The final results are in for my poll this past week, in which I asked my 
site visitors whether they would like for the Pet Shop Boys to completely 
re-record (not just remix) one of their old pre-Yes hits and then re-release 
it as a new single. And, as it turns out --

* A majority of voters, 52.5%, would *not* want them to do this.

As for those who *would* like for the Boys to do this, the song that 
received the most votes (4.3%) or getting this treatment was "Love Comes 
Quickly." To see the complete results, please visit my "Commentary" site at 
http://www.geowayne.com/psbhtml.htm and click the "Past Survey Results" 
button in the left navigation bar.

My new poll for the week ahead is borrowed (with permission) from 
FirthofForth of the Pet Shop Boys Community Forum. We're asking you to 
imagine that the Pet Shop Boys had stopped making new music after their 1991 
hits collection "Discography." What kind of fan do you think you'd be at 
this point if that had been the case? Do you think you'd be just as much a 
fan as you are now? Less of a fan? Not a fan at all? Maybe even *more* of a 
fan? So please take a moment to make your choice from the options provided 
right there on my home page. And thanks again to FirthofForth for coming up 
with this intriguing question!

Thanks as well to everyone who voted in my survey last week. And I hope you 
all have a wonderful week ahead!
