The final results are in for my poll this past week, in which I asked my
site visitors what Pet Shop Boys song they believe would ultimately be
selected by the largest number of people in each of four different
groups -- the general public, their hardcore fans, their fellow
musicians, and knowledgeable critics -- as their all-time greatest song.
And the songs that received the most votes for each group were:
* "West End Girls," picked by 82.8% of the voters as the song that most
people in the general public would choose as the Pet Shop Boys' greatest;
* "Being Boring," chosen by 64.4% of the voters as the song that would
be picked by most hardcore PSB fans;
* "Being Boring," cited by 33.7% as the song that would be chosen as
their greatest by other musicians; and
* "Being Boring" once again, this time picked by 49.7% as the song that
most knowledgeable critics would name as PSB's greatest.
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 kicks off the holiday season with a
question that concerns the more commercial aspects of this time of year.
I'm wondering whether you think the Boys ought to time their album
releases more in keeping with the Christmas/holiday shopping/gift-giving
season with a view toward maximizing their album sales. So please take a
moment to make your choice from the options provided right there on my
home page. And thanks so much to porkchopkid for suggesting this question!
Thanks as well to everyone who voted in last week's survey. And I hope
you all have a most excellent week ahead!
