The final results are in for my poll this past week, in which I asked my 
site visitors to choose what they consider to be the Pet Shop Boys' greatest 
protest song. And the track picked by the largest number of voters was:

* "Integral," chosen by 34.5% of the voters.

To see the complete results, please visit my "Commentary" site at 
http://www.geowayne.com/psbhtml.htm and select one of the "Past Survey 
Results" options in the top navigation bar or click the appropriate link on 
my "What's New?" page.

My new poll for the week ahead is actually a two-parter. First, I'm asking 
you to rank the Pet Shop Boys' four (to date) large-scale "special outside 
projects" that extend beyond the usual realm of pop music: their stage 
musical "Closer to Heaven," their silent film score "Battleship Potemkin," 
their ballet "The Most Incredible Thing," and their (for want of a more 
succinct term) orchestral-choral suite/songcycle "A Man from the Future." I 
would like for you to rank them 1 to 4, with 1 being the best or your 
favorite of the four, and 4 being the weakest or your least favorite. (I 
shoulod emphasize that a ranking of 4 doesn't mean you believe that work is 
"poor" or that you dislike it; it merely means that you think the others are 
better and/or you like the others more.)

The second "bonus" question asks how you feel in general about these special 
projects. I'm offering four basic statements, from which you may pick the 
one that comes *closest* to expressing your general opinion of them. So 
please take a few moments to place your votes right there on my home page.

In the meantime, thanks to much to everyone who voted in last week's survey! 
And I hope you all have a fantastic week ahead!
