The final results are in for my survey of the past week, in which I
asked my site visitors how many times they've seen the Pet Shop Boys
perform "live," in-person. And the number of times that received the
most votes was:
* "1 (once)," picked by 15.4% 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.
As I've been suggesting of late, I've now decided, as least for the time
being, to begin running my polls on a biweekly/fortnightly basis rather
than weekly. And, appropriately enough, my new poll running for the next
two weeks may require some "homework" on your part, so the extra time
may prove helpful. I've listed each of the calendar years since the
release of the Pet Shop Boys' first album, "Please," in which they did
*not* release another one of their generally acknowledged 13 "studio"
albums. That makes for a total of 20 different years. But I've listed
each of those years twice, and I'm asking you to make two choices: which
of them would you describe as the BEST "PSB year" in which they didn't
release a studio album, and which was the WORST? In other words, please
consider everything done and/or released by the Boys in those years --
singles (and their b-sides), compilation albums, Disco albums, music
videos, live concerts, VHS/DVDs, "side projects" (such as Closer to
Heaven, Battleship Potemkin, The Most Incredible Thing, etc.),
publications, and so on -- and choose the years that you think were the
"best" and the "worst." So please, when you're ready, make your choices
right there on my home page. And thanks so much to David B for
suggesting this intriguing question!
Thanks as well to everyone who voted in last week's survey! And I hope
you all have a terrific two weeks ahead!
