It’s time for this week’s poll post… I always first start off talking about the 2 Stones polls that are run here each week. This marks week 921 of these polls. The first question asks this: Some Girls vs Aftermath, which album do you like the best?.
Week 3 of the Stones album VS poll that we call “the Some Girls polls”. After last week, SG's record is at 9 wins and 4 losses. This week it takes on 1966's Aftermath, which is doing pretty good in these matchup’s with 7 wins and just 3 losses, good for 7th place in the standings. Since as you know, this LP had 2 slightly different versions to it, one released in the UK and another in the U.S., so you should choose the one you know best when comparing it to SG.

To cast your vote in this first Stones poll, just click on: Stones Weekly Poll, and when you get to this page, choose “Poll 1” to vote on this question.
This week at the regular Stones album VS poll, where each week we bring back an older series to do battle once again, we will ask this: Undercover vs Beggars Banquet, which album do you like the best?
For our regular Stones album VS poll of the week, the Undercover Polls return. Undercover is having a very hard time in these matchups. After handily winning its first round against Dirty Work, it has since lost the next 9 rounds. And this week things are not going to get easier, since Undercover in its first 10 matchups hasn't once gone up against any of the Stones Big 5, but this week it shall.
Beggars Banquet has had the least number of matchups among the Big 5, not sure why that’s happened, but it sits in 4th place with a 8-3 record and has won 8 matches in a row after losing its first 3 rounds to SF, EOMS, and LIB.
So we got 2 albums this week that are going in totally different directions. To see the song list for each album, for Undercover, click on: Undercover , and for Beggars Banquet, click here: BB.

At the Stones two polls last week, the first one asked this question: Some Girls vs Bridges To Babylon, which album do you like the best?.
Just like 2 weeks ago, last week neither poll was close. For our first Some Girls poll, the host LP won big time for the second week in a row. To see by how much, just click here: Stones Weekly Poll - week 920 poll 1. I’ll also add the results from this poll to the standings at the Stones VS Page 1, where at the top of the page you can check out the updated standings on how each album has done in these long running VS polls
Looking back at last week’s second Stones poll, the question was: Black and Blue vs England's Newest Hit Makers, which album do you like the best?
England's Newest Hit Makers kicked butt in this one To see the final result from this second poll, just click on here:Stones Weekly Poll - week 920, poll 2. Plus just like with the SG VS polls, I’ll add the results from this poll to the standings at the Stones VS Page 1, where again, at the top of the page you can check out the updated standings on how each album has done in these long running VS polls.
At this week’s Classic Rock Poll, it’s week 561, and just like we do at the Stones poll, we run 2 poll questions a week at this one too. The first poll’s question will ask this: Who was the most underrated member of The Small Faces/Faces?
We continue with the rock series where we ask for the most underrated member of each rock band, and this week we look at what started out as a 4 piece band which at first was called "The Small Faces", then after its co-founder, main singer, song writer and lead guitarist, Steve Marriott, left the band to form a new group (Humble Pie), it metamorphosed into "The Faces", with 2 new members, and became a 5 piece band. But no, they were not really ever 2 different bands, although some did look at them as such, but when it was time for them to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, they went in as one single band, as I believe they should have been.
The Small Faces formed in the UK in 1965 as a mod band and turned more to psychedelic music by the late '60s (like most rock bands did around that time). Marriott had met bassist and fellow song writer Ronnie Lane in a music store one day and they hit it off and started the band shortly after that with 2 friends, drummer Kenney Jones and guitarist but soon to be keyboardist, Jimmy Winston. After the band started out, less than a year later, Winston left and Ian McLagan took his place. The band became a major act, especially in the UK, with the song "Itchycoo Park" going all the way up the pop charts to becoming a #3 hit, with several more hit singles and hit albums to come. When Marriott decided to form a new band in 1969, the remaining 3 members joined up with former Jeff Beck band members, singer Rod Stewart, and bassist/guitarist Ron Wood, who would take over the lead guitar duties for the band that now would be called just "The Faces". As "The Faces", the band had even more big hit singles, and would last until 1975, when Wood would start to play with the Rolling Stones, which got in the way of the Faces and would lead to them breaking up for a short time. But soon after, Marriott returned to the lineup replacing both Stewart and Wood, while the band went back to being called the Small Faces again. Lane, who had left the group in '73, was at first back in too, but he was now sick, and after a few months his body gave out and he could not play bass anymore as multiple sclerosis was very slowly starting to kill him. He would be confined to a wheelchair just a few months after leaving. Tetsu Yamauchi had replaced Lane in '73, but he left in '75, and Rick Wills took over for Lane when he left the second time. Lead guitarist Jesse Ed Davis joined in 1975 for a while too, but only played live for them, never appearing on any studio work, and another well-known lead guitarist, Jimmy McCulloch, left Paul McCartney’s Wings for the Small Faces in 1977 as mainly their rhythm guitarist, and he stayed on for one new album before leaving. The band broke up for good in '78, sans a few reunions that still take place from time to time up to this day, even with half of the former members now being deceased.

For this week's VS Rock poll we ask this: 'Hey Hey What Can I Do' by Led Zeppelin vs 'Roxanne' by The Police, which song about a guy in love with a prostitute, better?
Prostitution is called the oldest profession ever and is of course, illegal in most places, and both of these 2 excellent songs are about falling in love with a lady of the night, with the Police song more anti-prostitution a number, while the Led Zep song is more about a guy who doesn't want to share his lover with others.
Which song do you like better? To make your pick between these 2 songs, just click on Classic Rock Poll, and when you get to this page, choose “Poll 2” to vote on this question.
In last week’s first Rock poll, we asked: Who was the most underrated member of The Monkees?
This poll was very close all week long, that is for 3 of the 4 Monkees, as poor Davy Jones didn’t have a chance in this one. In the end, Pete Tork was picked as being the most underrated Monkee.
To see the full, final results from this poll, click here: Classic Rock Poll 1, week 560 Or, to just view last week’s top pick along with the other past chosen most underrated musicians from the other bands already voted on, just click here for our newest list page: Top Ten Lists, Page, 14
In last week’s VS Rock poll, we asked: 'Lonesome Loser' by The Little River Band vs 'Desperado' by The Eagles, which song about a loser in love, is better? Not too close a battle in this one last week, I was thinking just maybe that won’t be the case, but it was, and the Eagles came up first by a good margin To see by how much, click here: Classic Rock Poll 1, week 560 You can also check out the final results at the VS results page 2, at the Classic Rock site, just click on: VS Page 2, List Page 10.
We finish things up here with the Beatles poll, where it’s week 314, and this week’s question is: Which Beatles' song title best describes you?
We ran this same question years ago for the Stones songs and their titles, and it is a fun one to ask indeed, so let's ask it again this week using Beatle song titles.
Now, we are going by how the song title reads only for you answer - and not what the title is about in the song. You don't have to like a song, or even know a song to choose it, if it's title describes you as a person best, or covers how you feel about yourself, you should pick it them even if you don't know the song.
To see the list of songs to choose for, and vote in this poll, go here: Beatles Weekly Poll.
In last week's Beatles poll we answered this question: Of the following 4 songs written about Paul McCartney, which one is the best? The John Lennon song about Paul took the top spot by a good margin, with the other 3 bunched together real close. You can check out the results here: Beatles Weekly Poll – week 313. Or, you can check out the poll’s top pick only at the following Beatles list page, just click on Beatles miscellaneous page which is located at the domain’s Lennon Site.
So that’s it for this week’s poll thread. Spring starts this week, but here in Colorado we have seen spring temperatures for the last 2 months now. March so far is feeling like it’s early June. We have had record high temps here for 4 days in a row now, with maybe another one tomorrow, and this is supposed to be our snowiest month of the year. Today for the first time that I can ever recall doing in the wintertime, I was able to hang the laundry outside to dry, that’s how warm it was, as it was near 70 degrees F again today here. Global warming is happening for sure!
I thank all of you who take part in the voting here each week in our 5 weekly polls!
