The final results are in for my two-part poll this past week. First I asked
my site visitors to rank, from 1 to 4 (with 1 being the best or their most
favorite) the Pet Shop Boys' large-scale special musical projects: "Closer
to Heaven," "Battleship Potemkin," "The Most Incredible Thing," and "A Man
from the Future." And the one that both had the largest number of #1
rankings and the best average ranking was:
* Their film score "Battleship Potemkin," ranked #1 by 38.3% of the voters
and earning an average ranking of 2.06.
For the record, the overall breakdown of the other average ranking (keeping
in mind that, the lower the average, the better) was "Closer to Heaven"
(2.20), "The Most Incredible Thing" (2.71), and "A Man from the Future"
(2.96). To see the complete, detailed 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 ventures into the realm of fantasy, or at
least wishful thinking. If you had the opportunity to become part of the
"PSB crew" -- that select group of people who support the Boys and their
work in various ways -- which of various possible roles would you be most
interested in filling? And this involves your believing that you have the
skills, at least to some degree, that would be necessary to fill that role.
(We're on the honor system here!) Please note that I offer my usual
"catch-all" option of "Something else not listed here" as well as a "None of
the above" choice for those of you who may not feel you would be able to
fill any such role and/or wouldn't even want to. Thanks so much to Daniel
Dannypannic for thinking of and suggesting this delightful question!
Thanks as well to everyone who voted in last week's survey! And I hope you
all have a fantastic week ahead!
