The final results are in for my poll of the past two weeks, in which I
asked my site visitors to choose their three favorite songs from the Pet
Shop Boys' "Bilingual era." And the three songs that received the most
* "A Red Letter Day," picked by 25.5% of the voters,
* "It Always Comes as a Surprise," chosen by 21.4%, and
* "Discoteca," selected by 20.8%.
Interestingly, the top vote-getter this time around received far fewer
votes (in terms of percentage, at least) than the "winners" of my
previous two polls, for the Very and Behaviour eras. Yet there were
considerably more voters this time around than in those two surveys, and
the "spread" of voting was much tighter, with the least popular songs
receiving more votes than the least popular in the previous polls. As I
said, most interesting. At any rate, 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 next two weeks continues the "pick three" pattern,
but with a very different focus this time around. One of my regular site
visitors, Jonathan Cooper, will be DJing a 1970s, '80s, and '90s dance
soon and is compiling a playlist of dance tracks for that gig. He wants
to include three PSB songs that will be good for dancing, and he wants
us to help him make his choices through our votes. But he wants to make
sure they're familiar songs to most of his audience, so he's limiting
the selections to singles of that period. To that end, I've listed all
of the Boys' U.K. and/or U.S. singles of the eighties and nineties, from
which we're asking you to pick the three that may not necessarily be
your favorites, but which you think will be best for a dance party. So
please take a few moments to make your three choices right there on my
home page. And thanks, Jonathan, for this terrific poll suggestion. I
hope we prove a big help!
Thanks to everyone who voted in my previous survey! And I hope you all
have a wonderful two weeks ahead!
