Echoes Poll 1992 Date: Fri, 30 Oct 92 09:59:01 EST From: Chris Brown To: echoes@tcs.com Well, I've finally talleyed the results of the poll I posted some time ago. The top three results for each category are posted here with the number of votes followed by the song title. If the numbers look a little low, it's not for a lack of response. In each category there many many responses that only had one or two votes. Some responses were disqualified. These would include: Multiple responses for the same category (e.g. "I don't know, maybe _this song_ or _that song_"); Giving a song title where an album title was requested or vice versa; or giving a response that doesn't exist (e.g. ABitW Pt4). So without further adiew, here are the results... Toapher THE 1992 _ECHOES_ READERS' POLL =============================== 1 - What is the best Pink Floyd song to listen to when you're pissed off? 8 - Not Now John 6 - One Of These Days 5 - Run Like Hell 2 - What is the most depressing Pink Floyd song? 5 - Goodbye Cruel World 4 - Don't Leave Me Now 3 - The Final Cut 3 - What Pink Floyd song really jams? 6 - One of These Days 5 - Pigs 4 - Run Like Hell 4 - What is the best Pink Floyd song to space out to? 11 - Shine On You Crazy Diamond 7 - Interstellar Overdrive 6 - Echoes 5 - What is the best Pink Floyd song to make love to? 8 - Great Gig In The Sky 4 - Echoes 3 - Shine On You Crazy Diamond 6 - What is the best all-around Pink Floyd song? 7 - Comfortably Numb 5 - Wish You Were Here 4 - Time 7 - What is the best Pink Floyd album to listen to in the car on a road trip? 9 - The Wall 6 - Animals 5 - Wish You Were Here 8 - What is the best Pink Floyd album to listen to when you're altered? 7 - Wish You Were Here 5 - Dark Side of the Moon 4 - Meddle 9 - What is the best all-around Pink Floyd album? 8 - Wish You Were Here 7 - Dark Side of the Moon 6 - Animals Some notes: - Category 2, The Most Depressing Song, got the most titles listed at 17. Some unexpected titles were "Embroyo" and "Jugband Blues". And although it wasn't a category, The Final Cut would probably have been selected as the most depressing album because this category had more songs from that album than any other category. - For category 3, I guess that not everyone has the same definition of 'jam'. For me it's the kind of song where you're jumping around the room playing air guitar and making faces. But some people responded with the likes of "Interstellar Overdrive" and "Any Colour You Like". - A couple unexpected responses to Category 5, The Best Song To Make Love To were "Empty Spaces" and "Welcome To The Machine".
