October - Song Elimination FINAL
« on: August 30, 2020, 12:03:06 PM »
Vote for what you think is the WORST song on the album, and each round the song with the most votes will be removed, eventually giving us a ranking of the songs on October.

If there is a clear winner and at least 15 votes after a day, I will end the poll there and say what song was eliminated in an edit to this post.  If it's tied or very close or there are under 15 votes after a day, I will let the poll run longer.

Ranking:

1. Gloria
2. Tomorrow (69.2%, 18 votes)
3. October (62.5%, 10 votes)
4. I Fall Down (91.7%, 11 votes)
5. I Threw a Brick Through a Window (50%, 9 votes)
6. Scarlet (36.8%, 7 votes)
7. Rejoice (31.6%, 6 votes)
8. Stranger in a Strange Land (60%, 12 votes)
9. Is That All? (29.4%, 5 votes)
10. Fire (42.1%, 8 votes)
11. With a Shout (Jerusalem) (30%, 6 votes)

There's a bible verse,
says the last one shall be first.
Well, if that verse is true,
there's hope for me and you.

That's my 4th favorite, the "best of the rest" for me, surprised to see it getting any votes when the final 4 songs are so poor.

Ugh it's like picking a least favorite child. I might have to go with October.
Or is it now?

This one was easy for me - Fire stands out for me as the worst track.

The next pick will be harder, dunno yet what it will be.

I do know the album very well and enjoy it quite a bit.

Whoever voted Gloria, did you not read the poll question or something?
