Time to get our poll post under way and as usual, we start off with the Stones weekly poll, which enters week 928, and 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 'She Was Hot' (Click here for the video).
So we look at the video the Stones put out for the song 'She Was Hot', which showed up on the Undercover LP, and was released in 1983. The video was directed by Julien Temple, with actress Anita Morris playing the role of the very hot female that the song is about. Of course, the video was partly censored on the ridiculous censor happy MTV. What we will rate this week is the uncensored version.
The song itself was only a minor hit, reaching #44 and #42 on the main U.S. and U.K. charts, but the video was more well liked, at least by straight males anyway.
A part of the next paragraph is a repeat from last week… but it’s still 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 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)… 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.
At the Stones album VS poll, each week we bring back an older series to do battle once again, so this week the question is: Exile On Main Street vs Between the Buttons, which album do you like the best?
Yes, the Exile Polls return to our Stones VS polls, featuring the band’s 1972 double LP Exile On Main Street. Although this LP was not in the first Stones VS matchup, it was the first album to be featured in what became the poll's regular series album matchups. EOMS has a record of 12-2, good for third place in the standings, just behind the only 2 albums to beat it (SF & LIB). This week it goes up against 1967's Between the Buttons, sporting a even record of 6-6, which lands it in 14th place.
To see the song list for each album, for Exile On Main Street , click on: EOMS, and for Between the Buttons , click here: BTB.
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 2).
Just as the first Angie video saw 2 weeks ago, this take 2 of the song and video also scored a “7” as its top pick, as that and “6” were in a battle all week for the top rating. To see the final poll results, just click here::Stones Weekly Poll - week 927, 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: Some Girls vs The Rolling Stones, Now!, which album do you like the best?
This poll wasn’t close at all. To find out which LP came out on top, just click on here:Stones Weekly Poll - week 927, 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 568, 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 3 of 5)
Part 3 of this question and this week there's another 26 great opening lyrics to choose from. As noted in the first 2 parts, 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.
Now, also as I noted before, 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 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: 'Oh, Pretty Woman' by Roy Oribson vs '(Oh) Pretty Woman' by Van Halen, which version is better?
Roy Oribson wrote this song after he actually saw a pretty woman walking down the Street one day. He then got the idea for the rest of the song from things he said to his wife Claudette when they first met. The song was a major hit, going all the way to #1 in several countries, including in both in the U.S. and U.K. and was Oribson's best known song.
Van Halen covered the song in 1982 on their album Diver Down. Released as a single after the album came out, it was a hit and went to #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
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. The Van Halen video for this song was yet another video that at first MTV refused to show, then when they finally allowed it to be shown, they edited out the beginning of it where 2 dwarfs are molesting by hand a tied up pretty woman (who was actually a transvestite). But just remember, we aren't rating the videos for this poll question, not at all. They are only there so you can hear the song before you vote.
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 2 of 5)
8 songs ended up in the top 7 last week thanks to a tie for 7th place. Those songs that will live on to Part 5 are: ‘Brown Sugar’ - The Stones (5.8%), ‘Norwegian Wood’ - The Beatles (5.8%), ‘Street Fighting Man’ – Stones (5.6%), ‘Diamond Dogs’ - David Bowie (5.4%), ‘Highway 61 Revisited’ - Bob Dylan (5.4%), ‘Still Crazy After all these Years’ - Paul Simon (5.4%), ‘Free Bird’ - Lynyrd Skynyrd (5.3%), ‘The Times They Are-A Changin’ - Bob Dylan (5.3).
Some very close voting indeed. You can view the full, final results from this poll, by clicking here: Classic Rock Poll 1, week 567
In last week’s VS Rock poll, we asked: 'I Don't Need No Doctor' by Ray Charles vs 'I Don't Need No Doctor' by Humble Pie, which cover version is better? Very very close voting in this one for the entire week, as each day ended with either a tie, or one song ahead by one or 2 votes at the most. To see which song ended up on top, just click here: Classic Rock Poll 1, week 567 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.
Time to close out this poll post as usual with the Beatles poll, where it’s week 321, and this week’s question is: The White Album (aka The Beatles) vs A Hard Day's Night, which album do you like the best?
This week at the Beatles VS poll it's week 7 of the White polls, featuring The White Album, and this week it takes on the UK LP from 1964, A Hard Day's Night, which has a 2-1 record so far in this series; The White Album is now at 6-3.
I say you should go by the UK release of this album, as it was what the Beatles wanted released, but if you only know the inferior U.S. album, you could go by that one. The UK album has side one containing songs from the soundtrack to their movie of the same name. On the U.S. release, of the 12 songs included, 4 of them are boring orchestra instrumentals, and they really ruin an otherwise excellent LP.
To see the song list for each album, for The White Album, click on: TWA, and for A Hard Day's Night, click here: AHDN_(UK).

In last week's Beatles poll we answered this question: The White Album (aka The Beatles) vs Beatles for Sale, which album do you like the best?
There was a landslide result in this one, you can check out the final result from this poll here: Beatles Weekly Poll – week 320. Plus, check out the standings here: Beatle albums vs Beatle albums.
Well that does it for this week’s poll post. Hope you all had a great weekend. I planned the first barbecue of the year today, and 5 minutes after getting the chicken on the grill, a hail storm hit! Where I live in Colorado, along with the Colorado Front Range, is the official hail capital of the world, we average 10 hail storms a year here, and this was the first one of the year to hit us. Only figures it hit right after I got started, and came from out of nowhere. One minute the sun was out and it was a warm 68 degrees F, next thing I know I’m getting hit with hail with the temperature plummeting by the minute. Got the pets in the house and moved the grill under the eve of the house while my gin and lemonade drink had unneeded extra ice added in to it while it sat on the picnic table. It seems the first barbecue of the season always ends up with problems, either it’s too windy, or too cold - one year it started to snow as I was cooking, and today it was this damn hail storm! Maybe I should just wait till June before I cook out in the future. Oh well, the hail and rain did stop after a half hour and then the sun came back out, and just like is always the case out here in the west, 5 minutes after it rains, the ground totally dries up again, unlike in the east where I grew up, there if it rains, the ground stays wet for the rest of the day even if it stops raining.
I hope everybody has a great upcoming week… and since a couple of Gassers wrote me on this, I’m still waiting on the new Gasland password system to be finished. Seems thanks to this board being programed on the old ASP, that’s getting in the way some, seems none of todays’ modern programmers know ASP well. So that’s the delay, I’m hoping to learn more tomorrow. But no need to worry about it, when it’s really to happen, you Gassers will all know about it first!
