Week 968 of the Stones weekly polls is upon us tonight and as usual 2 brand new polls for the week start up now. So this week’s first question asks this: Which is the most underrated song on the Stones Voodoo Lounge album?
This week we take a look at the 1994 Stones LP Voodoo Lounge, to see which song on it is most underrated. IMO, if there is one Stones album that is loaded with underrated songs, it's this one! I at least will have a hard time picking just one song out of the 15 from this double LP. I’d say that there's maybe 4 songs on the entire LP that don't qualify as being underrated including 2 that just plain out suck, one that's been overplayed by the band live, and one that is just too well liked and the best song perhaps on the LP. Notice I'm not naming any of them, since I never wish to interfere with anyone's vote, but you can figure out which songs I’m talking about if you know me well enough. But I see 5 strong songs on here that I want to vote for, but like everybody else, I will get it cut down to just one song in the next day or so and then vote on this one.
To see the song list for the songs on Voodoo Lounge, just click here: VL.
To cast your vote in this first poll, just click on: Stones Weekly Poll, and when you get to this page, choose “Poll 1” to vote on this question.
The second Stones poll is where we run the Stones album VS matchups, and this week we ask this question: Exile On Main Street vs 12x5, which album do you like the best?
This week we return to the beginning series that we first ran in the Stones album VS battles, that being The Exile Polls, featuring the 1971 double LP Exile On Main Street. Exile is doing very well in these matchups, sporting a 14-2 record, good for third place in the standings. This week it will go up against 1964’s 12x5, the Stones second release, which is also doing well in these matches with a 8-7-1 mark, placing it in 13th place.
To see the song list for each album, for Exile On Main Street, click here: EOMS. For 12x5, click on: 12x5.
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 first Stones poll last week we answered this question: Which is the most underrated song on the Stones Steel Wheels album?
There were only 2 songs that had a chance from early on in the voting. “Continental Drift” took a big lead early in the week with “Almost Hear You Sigh” somewhat further back in second. But as the week grew old, each day AHYS got a bit closer until it actually tied CD on Friday night and for the last couple of days the 2 were neck and neck. But CD held on and won by 2 votes in the end. To see the full, final results, click on Stones Weekly Poll - week 967, poll 1. Or, you can see the top pick from this poll and the other Stones songs picked from the other albums we already voted on for this question, here: Stones Fans Picks Page 1. It’s listed about a third of the way down on the page, just before the “Songs only” lists starts.
Looking back at last week’s second Stones poll, the question was: England's Newest Hit Makers vs December's Children, which album do you like the best?
England's Newest Hit Makers just can’t get a break in these polls. Guess that should tell ya which LP came out on top To see the final results, just click here:Stones Weekly Poll - week 967, 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 poll week 608, and just like as we do at the Stones poll, we vote in 2 poll questions a week in this one too. The first poll’s question this week asks this: Of the Rock songs with spoken words in them, on which song do they sound best? (Part 2 of 3)
Part 2 of this rock question, where we are looking at songs that have spoken words in them. But to remind everybody, we are not looking for your favorite song from the 60 songs you will choose from this week, but we are asking for on which songs did the spoken words work out and sound best on.
This next bit is repeated from last week: Since space is limited in the poll's voting booth for text, I brought back that old page I use once in a blue moon where I can list, in this case, the entire lyrics that were spoken, since I can’t get all of them to fit in the poll’s choice field. So you can go to this special page to see what was spoken, for the songs that don’t have any text showing in the voting booth. The link to these songs’ with talking lyrics will be found up on top in the poll's question field – it’s very easy to find.
To vote in this poll and make your pick for the best spoken words in a song, 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 will vote on this new question: "So Far Away" by Carole King vs "So Far Away" by Dire Straits, which one of these 2 different songs with the same title, is better?
We continue with the series called “Same Title, Different Song” Polls again this week, where, we take 2 songs that are totally different from each other as far as their lyrics go, and the only one thing they have in common, is the songs have the same titles. Then we just ask for the better song of the two. Yet this week both songs’ lyrics actually do deal with the very same subject, but they are still different songs, while both are about a lover who's not there.
“So Far Away" by Carole King was written by King and appeared on her 1971 blockbuster album Tapestry. The song features her close friend James Taylor on acoustic guitar.
"So Far Away" by Dire Straits came out in 1985 and was a top 10 hit in several countries. It appeared on the album Brothers in Arms and became the band's fourth and final top 20 hit on the Billboard charts.
To vote for your favorite of the 2 songs, just click on Classic Rock Poll, and when you get to this page, choose “Poll 2” to vote on this question.
Looking back at last week’s first Rock poll, we asked: Of the Rock songs with spoken words in them, in which one do they sound the best on? (Part 1 of 3)
Funny, although all 5 polls again broke the 1,000 marker vote count in each poll last week - something that has now took place for 14 weeks in a row and I guess will happen from now on as long as the polls keep going on with no server problems (yet we had 2 days of such problems last week!), 4 of the 5 polls just barely got past 1,000 for the most part. Yet this first rock poll just, well, rocked all week, seeing the second highest number of votes cast ever for our weekly polls! So I guess everybody likes this question, and we got 2 parts to still vote on, starting tonight. There were 13 songs from last week that made it into the Part 3, they are: Walk on the Wild Side - Lou Reed, Alice's Restaurant Massacree - Arlo Guthrie, Dig It - The Beatles, Iron Man - Black Sabbath, Here Comes My Girl - Tom Petty, Spill The Wine - Eric Burdon and War, Late Lament - The Moody Blues, Young Lust - Pink Floyd, Come Dancing - The Kinks, Dream A Little Dream Of Me - Mama Cass Elliot, Emotional Rescue - The Rolling Stones, Fire On High - Electric Light Orchestra, and Proud Mary - Ike and Tina Turner… To see the full results from this poll, just click here: Classic Rock Poll 1, week 607. The top 10 results from the final round will also show up on the Top Ten Lists, Page, 14, after that poll is run.
In last week’s VS Rock poll, we answered this question: "Changes" by David Bowie vs "Changes" by Black Sabbath vs "Changes" by Yes, which one of these 3 different songs with the same title, is better?
Bowie’s song won in a landslide, with the Sabbath song finishing second. To see by how much Bowie’s song won by, just click here: Rock Poll 2, week 607. You can also check out the final results at the VS Classic poll results page at the Classic Rock site, by clicking here: VS poll page 3, list page 15.
We close out this poll post in the usual way, with the Beatles poll, where we enter week 361, and ask this question: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band vs A Hard Day's Night, which album do you like the best?
This week our "Lonely Hearts Club Band’s poll” featuring the Beatles Sgt. Pepper's album, will take on 1964's A Hard Day's Night, their 3th UK LP, with side one containing songs from the soundtrack to their film of the same name. Please only consider the Beatles UK LP when voting in this poll, and totally forget about the U.S. release. In these Beatles album VS matches, the LP has a record of 2-3, while Sgt. Pepper's is now above the 500 mark at 5-4.

In last week's Beatles poll we asked: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band vs Beatles For Sale, which album do you like the best?
Close voting in this one but Sgt. Pepper's lead all the way and finished on top in the end. You can see the actual results, there: Beatles Weekly Poll – week 360. Or, you can check out the final results at the: The Beatles' Albums page, which is located at the domain’s Lennon Site.
So that does it for this week’s weeks’ poll post, and oh boy, another crazy week both in Gasland and for the polls, as the server the domain is on needs replacing, and for the third time in less than a year the domain is going to be moved to yet another server this week. I’m sounding like a broken record with this news! But none of this has anything to do with the board posting problem, or the fact that the new board isn’t ready yet. But it seems that my host is having some major issues at the moment and that is getting in the way of things.
As usual I thank all of you for voting in our polls each week!
