The final results are in for my poll of the past week, in which (in an 
unusual question, at least for me, that really had nothing to do with 
the Pet Shop Boys) I asked my site visitors about their current interest 
in "new" music -- that is, music by artists with whom they're not 
already quite familiar. And the response that received the most votes was:

* "I'm fairly open to 'new music' and will listen if the opportunity 
presents itself, but I don't actively seek it out," picked by 33.0% 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 survey for the week ahead has a seasonal theme, focusing on 
Christmas songs -- specifically original (non-cover) pop Christmas songs 
of the 1990s. That of course includes the Pet Shop Boys' own 1997 
Christmas song "It Doesn't Often Snow at Christmas." I've drawn upon a 
list published two years ago by "Us Magazine" of what they considered 
the twelve best original Christmas songs of that decade. Since the PSB 
song isn't included in that list, I've added it for a total of thirteen. 
>From this list I'd like for you to pick the one that you consider the 
best, or at least your own favorite.

Now, to be sure, since I run a PSB fansite frequented by PSB fans, I 
fully acknowledge the bias. It's very likely that "It Doesn't Often Snow 
at Christmas" will receive the most votes. But, then again, that may not 
prove true. Whatever the case, it will be interesting to see the final 
breakdown. So please take a few moments to go through the list of 
Christmas songs I've provided right there on my home page and make your 
selection. (And I have the usual options for those of you who feel you 
can't choose of those songs for one reason or another.)

In the meantime, thanks to everyone who voted in last week's survey! And 
I hope you all have a fabulous week ahead!
