Top 6@6 Week #25: Post 6 Jimmy Buffett Faves & Byrds/Springfield Results From Week 24

Top 6@6 Week #25: Post 6 Jimmy Buffett Faves WITH Byrds/Buffalo Springfield Results From Week 24.

Subtitled: Attention Parrot Heads: Screw the rules - No shoes or shirts required

Another Monday, Another Closed Poll.
The 6@6 Silver Anniversary. Last Week's Byrds Poll Tally: 18 Voters / 108 Selections, which garnered more feedback than Week 24's Buffalo Springfield Supplemental Poll with: 12 Voters / 65 Selections.
Factoid of the Week: 10 voters crossed genre lines last week and voted in both polls. (In the future, Supplemental poll artist sequence choices will made based on how well they compliment the regular poll artists. On To Business:

1st: Honorable Mentions, Notes & Asides
  • Everyone who voted this week. Once again, Some Great Song Selections.
  • Auction Barn Messiah & kawliga: A Newcomers to the 6 @ 6.
  • grendel72: Whose Cab Calloway Poll request will run in Week #27

  • Interrobang!?: Whose e-mailed Neko Case / New Pornographers poll request will run in Week #30.
  • Dragon Phoenix: Did I miss a poll request of yours? That’s my guess from your “you did not include my fave” comment in the Buffalo Springfield poll.
  • bibliophile: Who prompted this week’s Jeff Buckley Supplemental Poll.

2nd: Venus Fly Trap
"High Search Count" words used to control results through demographic alterations...This week's desired demographic group: Parrotheads.

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:
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 24 Results:
Tabulation Notes: A lot of votes 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.

Ooh ooh ooh! A singer I actually care about! It's hard to come up with only six songs, though.....

6. My Head Hurts, My Feet Stink, and I Don't Love Jesus (because I have had occasion once or twice *cough* to use this song in context)
5. Boat Drinks (I live in Minnesota. 'Nuff said.)
4. Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes
3. A Pirate Looks at Forty (I really miss ocean )
2. Son of a Son of a Sailor
1. He Went to Paris

*sigh*

I miss SoFlo all of a sudden......

1. Margaritaville
2. Cheeseburger in Paradise
3. Changes in Lattitudes
4. Son of a Son of a Sailor

Hey! How about the Bonzo Dog Band? (Other than the fact I'm probably the only one who's a fan.)

2. School Boy Heart
3. The Pascagoula Run
4. When the Coast is Clear (I grew up in a tourist town...)

Dragon Phoenix: Did I miss a poll request of yours? That’s my guess from your “you did not include my fave” comment in the Buffalo Springfield poll.
Sorry for the misunderstanding - I was referring to the song Expecting to fly, which was not in your choice of 6.

I'd like to see an Alice Cooper supplemental, please.

Like Homebrew I can barely pick 6 favorite Buffett albums, but if forced to choose my favorite 6 Buffett songs I have to go with:

1. Cheeseburger in Paradise
2. Cowboy in the Jungle
3. Distantly in Love
4. Great Heart
5. The Weather is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful
6. It's My Job.

Of his covers, I love "Brown Eyed Girl", "Uncle John's Band" and "Another Saturday Night".

By the way, I read somewhere that Harrison Ford is the one who "plays" the whip in Desperation Samba. When Jimmy realized they needed someone to crack a whip in the song, the only person he could think of that knew how to use a whip was...Indiana Jones.

Even if it's not true, I love that story.
