  • RESULTS 13/12/12

    So I was curious.

    Method And Variations:
    If more than one song was nominated for any album, the FIRST song was counted. Variation in total album count occurs due to a number refusing to elect a song as either they couldn't choose (mostly The Holy Bible) or did not like any on the album (mostly Lifeblood). The count of 89 votes on Send Away The Tigers (while the cap otherwise is 88) suggests an error in this data. Journal For Plague Lovers and Postcards From A Young Man suffer a smaller count as they were released while the count was ongoing, while Lipstick Traces is not widely owned, and so results may not be totally representative in these cases. Forever Delayed was left out of the results for a lack of original material. If the poster elected a separate song for each disc of Lipstick Traces, the original material (disc one) was counted.

    Track With The Most Votes:
    ... is Motorcycle Emptiness with 38, which comes to 43% of the Generation Terrorists votes (88).

    Tracks With No Votes:
    Some surprising, some not, but tracks that no one nominated as their favourites are: Repeat (Stars and Stripes), Tennessee, Damn Dog, Nostalgic Pushead, The Intense Humming Of Evil, and Facing Page: Top Left. Results on Lipstick Traces and Postcards From A Young Man have been omitted as not enough votes were cast to give an accurate impression.

    Other Observations:
    There is definitely a trend towards certain sets of favourites, though the only one I specifically noted was that people who chose a song other than 'Motorcycle Emptiness' as their favourite on Generation Terrorists were more likely to choose less popular tracks on other albums too, especially Gold Against The Soul. As you'll see, the spread of scores on Generation Terrorists, Gold Against The Soul, The Holy Bible, Lifeblood and Everything Must Go is heavily towards certain tracks, while Know Your Enemy and Send Away The Tigers had a more even spread.
