The final results are in for my poll this past week, in which I asked my 
site visitors whether they would buy any vinyl re-releases -- purely 
imaginary at this point -- of "classic" Pet Shop Boys albums. And the 
response that received the most votes was:

* "No, despite the fact that I don't own an or all of the original vinyl 
releases, I'm not interested in buying any new vinyl releases, period," 
picked by 48.2% 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.

For this week's new poll, I've selected two major "rock icons," U2 and 
Bruce Springsteen, who share the fact that the Boys have covered one of 
their songs: "Where the Streets Have No Name" and "The Last to Die," 
respectively. What if one of them were to decide to "return the favor," 
so to speak, by covering a PSB song? Which of the two would you most 
prefer to do this? And what "type" of PSB song would you most want them 
to cover: a single, a non-single album track, or a b-side or other 
relative "obscurity"? Or perhaps you wouldn't want either of them to 
remake any PSB song. I'm interested in finding out! This question, by 
the way, was inspired by a recent email from regular site visitor Daniel 
Dannypannic. He didn't suggest this specific question, but he did 
trigger my thinking along these lines, which I greatly appreciate. 
Thanks, Daniel!

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