Seventh: Past Poll Results & Notices:
A Primitive GeoCities Link Of All 92 6@6 Poll Results: In Ascending Week Order § Descending Vote Totals.

After 92 polls: The fact that 6,927 votes have been cast by 288 different board members for 2,479 songs still amazes me. Once again, thanks to everyone.

I think it's a pretty good resource for people who may wish to check out an artist they don’t know much about & get a basic idea which tracks are most preferred by the Doper community. Because of the dynamic nature of the music industry & the date the poll was run, some tracks on new releases from artists still recording are not included.

As has always been our custom, if there’s a band you’d like to see a 6@6 poll for; request it -- we’ll try & get it into the upcoming schedule. The majority of bands we’ve run polls on (and in the upcoming schedule) have been requested by other Café Society denizens.

Eighth: Tentative Schedule – Something For Everyone?
Week #47 - Polls 97-100: Dead Kennedys / Jello Biafra ¦ Dead Milkmen ¦ Black Flag / Henry Rollins / The Circle Jerks | D.O.A.
Week #48 - Polls 101-103: Dr. John / Mac Rebennack ¦ Professor Longhair / Roy Byrd ¦ Fats ‘Antoine’ Domino
Week #49 - Polls 104-108: Miles Davis ¦ John Coltrane ¦ Dave Brubeck ¦ Chet Baker | Louis Armstrong
Week #50 – Polls 109-111: Bob Dylan ¦ Donovan ¦ Joan Baez
Week #51 – Polls 112-114: Echo & The Bunnymen ¦ Death Cab for Cutie / The Postal Service ¦ Catherine Wheel
Week #52 – Polls 115-118: Cowboy Mouth ¦ Ryan Adams/Whiskeytown ¦ Atlanta Rhythm Section | Charlie Daniels
Week #53 – Polls 119-121: Depeche Mode ¦ Everclear ¦ Dishwalla
Week #54 – Polls 122-124: The Eagles ¦ Don Henley/Glen Frey Solo ¦ Joe Walsh / James Gang / Barnstorm
Week #55 – Polls 125-129: Emerson Lake & Palmer ¦ Electric Light Orchestra ¦ Dire Straits / Mark & David Knoplfer ¦ Dave Edmunds

Lastly: 6@6 Posting Guidelines
1st: Have a knowledge & appreciation for the artist(s) in the poll title. 2nd: Post your 6 favorite tracks from them. Cover versions & offshoots are acceptable. Segue tracks (written to be adjoined to a song from the same album) count as one song (i.e. The Abbey Road Medley & many Zappa tracks). Try to be as accurate as possible when naming your favorite tracks. Most importantly: Due to the fact the 6@6 is confined to one weekly thread, If you’re going to vote for more than one artist please make a separate post for each artist.

Without further ado:
Featured Poll #93: The Eurythmics

Headliner Poll #94: Curve

Supplemental Poll #95: Cranes

Additional Poll #96: Annie Lennox Solo

I assume the fact that you're confining everything to one weekly thread is the reason that it's not going to be shut down like the last incarnation?

I'm pleased to see it's back. Next week I'll have some actual voting to do!

I'm glad to see this back, too.

Eurythmics:

Love is a Stranger
Sweet Dreams (are made of this)
Here Comes the Rain Again
Who's That Girl?
Miracle of Love
Right by Your Side

Those last two are there largely because I still can't quite believe they got away with them. They're awfully close to cheesy, but they still satnd up ok.
