I've posted the final results my survey this past week, in which I asked my 
site visitors whether they have ever felt that the Pet Shop Boys had "jumped 
the shark." And the response that received the most votes was (perhaps not 

* "No -- never!" chosen by 53.9% 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 asks you to imagine PSB music in a slightly 
earlier age. I'm wondering which of the Pet Shop Boys' singles that they 
themselves composed do you believe would have stood the greatest chance of 
being the biggest hit back during the mid- or late 1970s, during the height 
of the "Disco Era" (although that song wouldn't necessarily need to be in 
the disco mold since, after all, not all of the big hits of that period were 
disco tracks). Another way to look at it is this: if you had a time machine 
and could take any of those singles back in the past with you to the 1970s, 
in hopes that you would be able to score a huge hit with it, which one would 
you take? So please mull this over and make your choice right there on my 
home page. I hope you have some fun with this one!

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