The final results are in for my survey this past week, in which I asked my 
site visitors to indicate, for each of the Pet Shop Boys' studio albums, 
whether they believe its lead single was the best choice for serving that 
function, or whether they feel another song from that album would have made 
a better lead single. And the responses that came out on top were:

* "It's a Sin," "Love etc." " Can You Forgive Her?" "So Hard," "Domino 
Dancing," and "Home and Dry" were each declared the best choice of lead 
single from their respective albums by the majority or plurality of voters 
(with "It's a Sin" faring the best with 85.1% of the vote), and

* "Winner," "Before," "Opportunities (Let's Make Lots of Money)," "I'm with 
Stupid," "Axis," and "I Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Any 
More" were each declared NOT to be the best choice of lead single from their 
respective albums by a majority or plurality of voters (with "Winner" faring 
the worst with 74.3% of the vote).

To see the complete, more detailed 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 extends deep into the realm of fantasy. Using 
the time-travel premise of the popular "Back to the Future" movies, I'm 
wondering what you would most prefer to do if you could go back to the time 
and place where Chris and Neil first met: that hi-fi shop on London's King's 
Road on August 19, 1981. Some of the options you can choose from are frankly 
somewhat shocking -- but the implications can be dire if you're going to 
step back and fiddle around with history. So please check out the options 
right there on my home page and choose the one that most closely reflects 
what you would most want to do. And thanks to Daniel Dannypannic for 
suggesting this remarkable question!

Thanks as well to everyone who voted in last week's survey! And I hope you 
all have a fabulous week ahead!
