Top 6@6 Week #27: Post 6 DC5 Faves With Beck & Cake Results From Week 26

Subtitled: No, not the MC5, the DC5, as in Dave Clark. But Fuck Hudson’s Anyway

Another Tuesday, due to my putting pleasure over tabulating, Another Closed Poll.
Last Week's Beck Poll Tally: 17 Voters / 95 Selections, which, garnered less feedback than Week 26's Cake Supplemental Poll with: 19 Voters / 113 Selections...who woulda thunk it?
Factoid of the Week: 7 voters crossed poll lines last week and voted in both polls. There’ll probably be a lot less (if any) this week. On To Business:

1st: Honorable Mentions, Notes & Asides
  • Everyone who voted this week.
  • angelicate ♪ BlackKnight ♪ even sven ♪ fizgig ♪ Legomancer ♪ mattymillhouse ♪ TripleAnt ♪ vibrotronica ♪ White Lightning: Another 9 Newcomers to the 6 @ 6.
  • gex gex: Whose Chemical Brothers Poll request will run in Week #41
  • Skijumper: Whose Cocteau Twins Poll request will run in Week #36
  • Tit Whistle: Whose Camper Van Beethoven poll will run in week 39 (Cracker & Cheap Trick were already booked in the Tentative Schedule)
  • gex gex, grendel72 & Ludovic: Whose Beck Liner notes I enjoyed reading. Not to mention…
  • even sven, gex gex, & grendel72: Whose Cake Liner notes (especially even sven’s trivia) made for a good read.
  • elfkin477: Whose Going the Distance / Liquid Television question I can’t find and answer for…Maybe gallows fodder can ask at the next family reunion
  • Labdad & RealityChuck: Who both prompted this week’s Bonzo Dog (Dada / Doo-Dah) Band Poll.

2nd: Venus Fly Trap
"High Search Count" words used to control results through demographic alterations...This week's desired demographic group: British Artists.
SPOILER:
Will these names attract lovers of contemporary British Art? David Undery, David Weston, Adrian McMurchie, Christopher English, Jules Sykes, N Bengstrom, Christopher Sherman, Gary Dyer, Stephanie Smart, Teresa Moore, Manuel Noguera, Vyshali Sardesai, Scott Maynard, Paul Stone, Cliff Orsi, Rebecca Makins, Frank Hill
Warning: Cheap search gimmick employed above

4th: Past polls and Results:
After the ZZ Top poll, sometime this decade, the plan is to compile all the votes from the SDMB & post them in a few threads. Then I’ll burn a several volume CD set & mail ‘em out to the voters who helped keep these threads going. The scrap-heap of past polls continues to grow:
Cake § Beck (Hanson) § Jimmy Buffett § Jeff Buckley § The Byrds § Buffalo Springfield § Bush § Kate Bush § Jackson Browne § James Brown § Better Than Ezra § Banarama § David Bowie Boston § Bon Jovi § Blur § Belle & Sebastian § Blue Φyster Cult § Blondie § Blink 182 § Black Sabbath § Black Crowes § Bjork § B-52's § Chuck Berry § Beastie Boys § Jeff Beck § The Band § Beach Boys § Beatles § Animals § Tori Amos § Allman Brothers § AC/DC § Abba & Aerosmith polls.


5th: Week 26 Results:
Tabulation Notes: Average amount of compilation & tabulation this week. The accounting department at the 6@6 corporate offices were very careful to not screw up the results…like they did with the Beatles “Day in The Life / A Day in the Life”…if you find any errors please report them. Side note: the posthumous has been removed from the supplemental template.

8th: Week #27’s Supplemental Poll (In another, as yet unknown, thread)
I can’t provide a link to it because the featured poll and results get posted first. There will however be a link back to this thread in the supplemental poll but you can still access it one of 3 ways:
  1. Click the link on my signature.
  2. Access it through the Cafι Society page.
  3. Bog down the server and do a search on: The Week #27 Supplemental 6@6 Poll...At Labdad & RealityChuck's behest: The Bonzo Dog (Dada / Doo-Dah) Band

9th: Week #27’s Featured Poll Artist's Discography(Reader’s Digest Version)
If your memory of the featured artist isn’t exactly up to speed, here’s a link to the discography (sometimes) with 30 second previews of some of the tracks when you drill down through the albums: Glad All Over  Dave Clark Five Return American Tour  Coast to Coast  Weekend In London Having A Wild Weekend  I Like It Like That  Try Too Hard Satisfied With You  Five By Five  You Got What It Takes  Everybody Knows  Greatest Hits  More Greatest Hits.
This link is usually provided by CD Now, but their in-print discography sucks!

10th & Lastly: Week #24’s Featured Poll Artist
Without further ado, the band with 60 million records sold under their belts…The Dave Clark Five.

Here are my 6 DAVE CLARK 5 selections:

6. Catch Us If You Can
5. Having A Wild Weekend
4. Over And Over
3. You Got What It Takes
2. Bits And Pieces
1. Glad All Over

Thanking you all in advance. See some of you over at the Bonzo Dog Band Have a great week!

I had never heard any DC5 (or so I thought) until this past week, when I thought I should prepare for the poll.

So after digging out Dad's albums, I came up with:

6) Bits & Pieces
5) Do You Love Me
4) Can't You See That She's Mine
3) Over & Over
2) Catch Us if You Can
1) Glad All Over
