Week 927 of our Stones poll is here and as usual, we will continue to vote in 2 different Stones polls per week. This week for the first poll, we will again be rating different Stones videos. So the first question asks this: Rate the Rolling Stones official video for 'Angie' (Version 2).
As I noted last week, there were 2 different videos for this 1973 #1 hit song. Version 1, which we voted on last week, showed Mick Taylor playing guitar along with Keith, the other one that we will rate this week, shows him on the piano, which was actually played by Nicky Hopkins in the song. The first video didn't show any piano player in this piano driven song at all. But why did they pick MT of all of the Stones to be shown playing the piano part in V2? Mick J, Keith, and Bill have all played more piano for the Stones than MT ever did; MT did play the synthesizer on one Stones song, "Fingerprint File", but that's it with him playing any keyboard instruments for them, and he never played any piano for the Stones.
This next paragraph is a repeat from last week… but it is important, so let me note it again…. Remember when voting, that it’s the entire video we are voting on here, and not just the song/music. The video will be linked to from inside the voting booth so you can watch it before you vote. Make sure to take the time to watch the video before you vote, to refresh your memory of it. The link to the video can also be found here in this thread (above)… If you use the link in the poll menu (only), when you click on where the song's title is in the question, you will be sent to YouTube and the video. If you click on anywhere else in the question, that will take you to where you can vote on the question in our voting booth.
So to watch the video and then cast your vote in this first Stones poll question, 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 Stones album VS poll, where each week we bring back an older series to do battle once again, we will ask this: Some Girls vs The Rolling Stones, Now!, which album do you like the best?
The Some Girls Polls return this week featuring the Stones 1978 LP Some Girls . SG in this series finds itself doing well enough in the VS album standings with a record of 11-4, good for 4th place. This week it does battle against the 1964 release, The Rolling Stones, Now!, which is 5 spots down from SG in the same standings with a not too bad record of 7-4.
To see the song list for each album, for 1 Some Girls, click on: SC, and for The Rolling Stones, Now!, click here: TRSN.
To cast your vote in this second Stones poll, just click on: Stones Weekly Poll, and when you get to this page, choose “Poll 2” to vote on this question.
At the Stones two polls last week, the first one asked this question: Rate the Rolling Stones official video for 'Angie' (Version 1).
A “7” was the top pick for this one, as that and “8” were in a battle all week for the top rating. To see the final poll results, just click here::Stones Weekly Poll - week 926, poll 1. Plus, you can also check out how all of the other videos that we have rated in the past, stand, by going here: Stones Fans Top Pick Lists - Page 2, under “Video Ratings”.
Looking back at last week’s second Stones poll, the question was: 12x5 vs Emotional Rescue, which album do you like the best?
This one wasn’t close at all. To find out which LP came out on top, just click on here:Stones Weekly Poll - week 926, poll 2. Plus, I’ll 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.
Over at the Classic Rock Poll, we enter week 567, and just like as 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: What's the best opening lyrics to a song? (Part 2 of 5)
Week 2 asking for your favorite opening lyric from a song. As noted last week, there will be 104 songs that we will vote in 4 parts, then in Part 5, the top 7 songs voted on from the first 4 weeks will be voted on again in that last week of voting.
When I put these multipart polls together, I try to make them as evenly matched up that I can. Yet I look at the list this week and I see a much stronger list of songs than last week as far as opening lyrics go. Hell, I could vote for just about every one of this week's 26 choices!
Now as I noted last week, I had to compile all the songs that will be used along with their opening lyrics on a separate page, outside of the voting booth, since the poll's admin only takes so many characters in the poll option field, and therefore there wasn’t enough room to show the lyrics in most cases. So since the lyrics are too long to fit into the said field, I had to do what I’ve only had to do twice before and list the lyrics on a separate page, and that's the only place where you will be able to view them. So the lyrics won't be shown in the poll where you vote, instead, only the song and the group who recorded it will be shown there. When you vote you can either try to remember the exact opening lyric, or you can read the actual opening lyrics on the special page that I placed them on and which will be linked to at the poll. To see all of these opening lyrics that you will choose from for the next 4 weeks, again, the link will be in the voting booth, and I'll also directly linked to it right :here
The list at the voting booth is of course listed as usual, in alphabetical order, but on the special page it's in no order at all, other then it's broken up into the 4 parts that we will chose from in the next 4 weeks.
To vote in this poll, just click here: Classic Rock Poll, and when you get to this page, choose “Poll 1” to vote on this question.
At the second Rock poll this week, known better as the Rock VS poll, we ask this question: 'I Don't Need No Doctor' by Ray Charles vs 'I Don't Need No Doctor' by Humble Pie, which cover version is better?
This song was written by the husband-and-wife songwriting team of Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson, along with Jo Armstead, in 1966. Ray Charles was the first one to record the song soon after, and it became a hit single for him. Then several others took a crack at it too, and in 1971 Humble Pie also did when they also covered it. But to listen to Charles' clean and smooth delivery of this song and then compare it to the Humble Pie hard rock, almost heavy metal like take of it, is well, like the difference between night and day indeed. This was also one of the last songs that Peter Frampton recorded, sang the backups for, and played lead guitar on for Humble Pie before he decided to leave the band and go solo.
As usual, links to the 2 songs are in the voting booth for you to listen to, if you would like to do that before you vote. Humble Pie's video is from a live show in '71, so it's not the studio take which I prefer we rate all songs by, but you can't really tell the difference between this and the studio version here anyway, thanks to the way Steve Marriott sings it live.
So which song will you vote for? To make your pick, 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: What's the best opening lyrics to a song? (Part 1 of 5)
So we now how our first 7 songs for Part 5, they are: ‘Jumpin' Jack Flash’ - Rolling Stones (7.3%), ‘A Day in the Life’ – Beatles (7.1%), ‘Werewolves of London’ - Warren Zevon (7.1%), ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ - Bob Dylan (6.9%), ‘Gloria’ - Patti Smith (6.8%), ‘Rebel Rebel’ -David Bowie (6.6%), and ‘Into The Mystic’ - Van Morrison (6.5%). Some very close voting, as you can see by viewing the full, final results from this poll, click here to do so: Classic Rock Poll 1, week 566
In last week’s VS Rock poll, we asked: 'Ruby Tuesday' by the Stones vs 'Tuesday's Gone' by Lynyrd Skynyrd, which song about a girl named Tuesday, who was a rolling stone, is better? Another poll run last week where the final results weren’t that close at all. I was a bit surprised how lopsided they were To see which song about Ruby ended up on top, just click here: Classic Rock Poll 1, week 566 You can also check out the final results at the VS poll results page 2, at the Classic Rock site, by clicking here: VS Page 2, List Page 10.
We close out this poll post as usual with the Beatles poll, where it’s week 320, and this week’s question is: The White Album (aka The Beatles) vs Beatles for Sale, which album do you like the best?
This week at the Beatles VS poll it's week 6 of the White polls, featuring The White Album, and this week it takes on the UK LP from 1964, Beatles for Sale, which has a 2-1 record so far in this series; The White Album is now at 5-3.

In last week's Beatles poll we answered this question: The White Album (aka The Beatles) vs Help!, which album do you like the best?
Some very close voting in this poll, and the album that lead on Tuesday morning after one full day of voting, wasn’t the one that lead by the close of polling today.
