The final results are in for my poll this past week, in which I asked my site visitors their opinions in various ways of the Pet Shop Boys songs that Neil and/or Chris themselves have indicated that they don't much care for. And the songs that received the most votes were:
* "So Hard," picked as their song of the group by 33.0% of the voters,
* "What Keeps Mankind Alive?" chosen as the least favorite by 41.8%,
* "So Hard," picked as the one that most surprised them as not being liked by Chris and/or Neil by 36.8%, and
* "So Hard," selected as "the most quintessentially PSB" of the batch by 37.8%.
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 is a fairly unusual one in which I'm asking you the extent to which you believe Neil's upbringing in the Catholic Church has been a theme of and/or an influence on the Pet Shop Boys' songs. So please take a moment to make your choice from options provided right there on my home page. And thanks to Miney for suggesting this intriguing question.
Thanks as well to everyone who voted in last week's survey! And I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead!
