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 Hudsons 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. Therell probably be a lot less (if any) this week. On To Business:
1st: Honorable Mentions, Notes & Asides
2nd: Venus Fly Trap
"High Search Count" words used to control results through demographic alterations...This week's desired demographic group: British Artists.
3rd: Increase the Hit Count
The Voters, Past & Present List Designed for those who do vanity searches:
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 Ill 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.
