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!
