Poll #79: Best Track From The Violet Flame?

Answer % Graph
Total votes: 515
Dead Of Night 6%
Elevation 6%
Reason 15%
Promises 4%
Be The One 11%
Sacred 24%
Under The Wave 13%
Smoke & Mirrors 9%
Paradise 5%
Stayed A Little Late Tonight 7%

After the first few votes were cast, Sacred led by a massive margin and whilst this margin reduced over time it never looked like being caught ending up with almost a quarter of the total vote. The next three highest ranked tracks are my personal favourites so it's good to see I'm not alone in my fondness for these songs. Interesting to Elevation receive so few votes - this very unusual for a lead single.

Poll #78: New Single Elevation Is:

Answer % Graph
Total votes: 362
Fantastic 41%
Good 33%
Average 14%
Weak 9%
Dreadful 3%

With nearly 75% rating the lead single from The Violet Flame as either fantastic or good it seems Elevation has received the thumbs-up from fans. That said, by comparison When I Start To (Break It All Down) (Poll #62) has a fantastic/good rating of 89%.

Poll #77: Best Recent Andy Bell Single?

Total votes: 143
Breathing Love 5%
Aftermath (Here We Go) 43%
Beautiful 52%

With just a shade over half of the votes, it is the track from the Andy Bell/Shelter collaboration album iPop that comes out on top. This poll was run before the release of I Don't Like from the Torsten The Bareback Saint album, but I doubt it would come close to beating Beautiful.

Poll #76: Which Stop Animation Music Video Do You Prefer?

Answer % Graph
Total votes: 196
Gaudete 54%
Make It Wonderful 46%

There was very little to choose between the two Snow Globe videos, with the lead bouncing back and forth throughout the duration of the poll, but in the end Gaudete was triumphant. Presumably this was because it suited the song more, as there is more going on in the Make It Wonderful video.

Poll #75: Best Gaudete Remix?

Total votes: 56
Alternative Mix 18%
Dave Aude Extended Club Remix 48%
DJ Yiannis Benedicat Domino Mix 5%
Razor N Guido Vocal Remix 9%
The Storks Remix 20%

A comprehensive victory for the Dave Aude Extended Club Remix which received nearly half of the total vote. Perhaps more interesting is how few people took part in the poll - maybe not many people bought the single and therefore are unfamiliar with these remixes?

Poll #74: What Do You Think Of The New Look To This Site?

Answer % Graph
Total votes: 116
I Like It 78%
I Think It's OK 11%
I Dislike It 1%
I Prefer The Old Site 8%
What New Look? 2%

Not bad, not bad - nearly 8 out of 10 people like the new look to my site. Still, not quite as high as the 89% approval rating I received when I launched the previous version of this site... :(

Poll #73: Best Snow Globe Track?

Answer % Graph
Total votes: 299
Bells Of Love (Isabelle's Of Love) 24%
Gaudete 8%
Make It Wonderful 19%
Sleep Quietly 2%
Silent Night 3%
Loving Man 31%
The Christmas Song 0%
Bleak Midwinter 3%
Blood On The Snow 3%
There'll Be No Tomorrow 6%
Midnight Clear 1%
White Christmas 0%
Silver Bells 0%

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the original compositions fared best in this poll, with Loving Man eventually overhauling long-time leader Bells Of Love (Isabelle's Of Love) to take the victory. White Christmas was the only track not to receive as single vote, with The Christmas Song and Silver Bells both receiving a solitary vote each.
