The final results are in for my poll this past week, in which I asked my 
site visitors whether they have ever had any unusually strong personal 
connections of a particular Pet Shop Boys song to a specific event or 
occurrence in their lives by virtue of the song's lyrics. And the response 
that received the largest number of votes was:

* Yes, I have had that sort of strong personal connection with a particular 
Pet Shop Boys song, although the release of the song did not coincide with 
the timing of that personal event," chosen by 44.4% of the voters.

To see the complete results, please visit my "Commentary" site at 
http://www.geowayne.com/psbhtml.htm and click 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 a sequel to one that I ran several weeks 
ago, in which I asked visitors to select what they consider to be the 
strongest or most effective lead single from a PSB studio album. This time, 
however, I'm approaching the subject from a different angle; I'm asking you 
to assess each album's lead single, stating whether you feel it was the best 
choice for that honor or whether another song from that album would have 
made a better lead single. Thanks so much to Eke Webb for suggesting this 

And thanks to everyone who voted in last week's survey! I hope you have a 
marvelous week ahead! And I wish a very happy and safe Memorial Day to my 
fellow U.S. fans as well as to anyone else who observes the holiday!
