Poll Post for the week starting Monday, June 27

After a week of some very interesting things going on in the U.S. and also some interesting results in our 3 weekly polls last week, too, it’s time now to talk about the week’s 3 new polls that we will answer to this week, so I’ll getting this Poll Post written early in the day (but it still won't be posted until tonight), instead of writing it on Sunday nite as I normally do, since today as I write this around noon or so, it’s looks like a day out of the northeast here, cloudy and rainy, with snow falling up high in our mountains, so it’s no day to be outside as there’s no nice weather to enjoy here, and I may as well start writing this post early instead.

We’ll look at the new Stones poll first, where we’ll enter week 1,195 of voting and where we are in week 86 of rating the Stones songs. This week’s question asks: Rate the Stones song “Rock And A Hard Place”, from zero (lowest) to 10 (highest).

“Rock And A Hard Place” Those in the U.S. are kinda in this place right now, thanks to the mistakes they made a few years ago

Week 2 of rating songs from the Ron Wood years and also week 2 of rating a song that really isn't anywhere as bad as what we rated its disco counterpart - which saw a very low rating when we fans rated that other version of this song several months ago. This week’s song, if I can say it (well, I can, but just remember that this in just MPOV), is a much better song than the tune we rated last week. It's actually a very good song - as long as you totally forget that awful disco version of it, and you do need to forget that other version of it since we aren’t rating that take this week. But the version we're rating now sounds more like a normal Stones song with just perhaps a bit too many horns playing on it, but nothing that should lower its rating, not by me anyway. While I may not give it a 10, or even a 9, it won't see a 5 from me either, like I rated last's weeks song. I got a feeling most will agree with me on this...... but then again, I could be wrong, and this is why we rate songs, to see how most of us feel about each song, or in this case, each version of one song, since a song could and often does sounds totally different when there’s more than one take made of it, even sometimes making it a totally different song than its other version.

This Stones song comes from the Stones 1989 album Steel Wheels and then was released as the LPs second single. Hard to believe that to this day it’s the last Billboard Top 40 hit by the Stones, seeing #23 as its top spot on the U.S, charts. It did a lot worst in the band’s homeland, the UK, where it only reached #64 there. Canada was the only country where it was a true hit, making it to #10 over there.

It seems that the Glimmer Twins actually both had a hand in writing this one, yes, it’s a rare but true Jagger/Richards composition! The lineup for this ditty was: Mick Jagger – Lead Vocals, Guitar; Keith Richards – Guitar: Ronnie Wood – Guitar; Bill Wyman – Bass Guitar; Charlie Watts – Drums; with Chuck Leavell and Matt Clifford playing the Keyboards; The Kick Horns played the Brass; and Backing Vocals by Sarah Dash, Lisa Fischer and Bernard Fowler…. To rate this week’s song, just click on the following link: Stones Weekly Poll.

Last week at the Stones poll we voted on this question: Rate the Stones song “Too Much Blood”, from zero (lowest) to 10 (highest).


“Too Much Blood” U.S. single cover (L) Japan single cover (R)

As I guessed, this song did much better than its disco version, receiving a 5 for its top rating with 33.4% of the vote. Normally that’s a terrible rating, but compared to the rating its counter version saw – only a 2, well, a 5 in this case is a lightyear better rating. To see the full, finial results from this poll, just click here: Stones Weekly Poll - week 1,194. Or, to see how low in the rating standings this one landed, just click on the following link to find out: Stones Song Ratings & Standings - List Page 5.

Now let’s look this week’s Classic Rock Poll, where we enter week 834 of polling, here’s this week’s question: What's the greatest rock duo/duet ever recorded? (Part 4 of 4).

Rock duo/duet songs

Yep, it’s the final week of asking this question as the final round is now here! We will have a total of 28 songs to choose from in Part 4, but things are going down to the wire on this one. Saturday morning when I built the poll in the admin, I had 29 songs listed yet by Saturday nite it was down to 28 songs and two of the songs that were first listed were gone and a different song emerged on the list that wasn’t on the earlier list. Yes, that happens sometimes when trying to put together a final round of a poll 2 days early. But it’s no big deal, either.

Last week we answered this question at the Rock Poll: What's the greatest rock duo/duet ever recorded? (Part 3 of 4).

Rock duo/duet songs

Yep, we were loaded with ties with this question for the second week in a row. 9 songs made it to the finial round thanks to ties for the last spot. There even was a 4-way tie for first place, and while I always note that all that really counts from a poll like this one is what songs will go on to the final round and their order doesn’t matter, but, it does tell us a story – that everybody’s vote will count in that last round of voting, since all of these songs seem to be well loved, indeed. Here’s last week 9 songs that qualified for this week’s finial Part 4: Baby Blue - Pete Ham & Tom Evans (w/ Badfinger)(192 votes); Bye Bye Love - Phil and Don Everly (as The Everly Brothers)(192 votes); Please Please Me - John Lennon & Paul McCartney (w/ the Beatles) (192 votes); The Boxer - Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel (as Simon & Garfunkel) (also 192 votes); One After 909 - John Lennon & Paul McCartney (w/ the Beatles) (191 votes); Homeward Bound - Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel (as Simon & Garfunkel) (190 votes); Paradise by the Dashboard Light - Meat Loaf & Ellen Foley(189 votes); Walking the Dog - Mick Jagger & Brian Jones (w/ the Rolling Stones) (189 votes); You Got That Right - Ronnie Van Zant & Steve Gaines (w/ Lynyrd Skynyrd) (also 189 votes).

For this week’s Beatles Poll, we enter week 585 of voting and the 19th week of rating the Beatles’ songs. This week’s question will ask this: Rate the Beatles song, “It Won't Be Long”, from zero (lowest) to 10 (highest).

“It Won't Be Long” The German single release’s front cover.

"It Won't Be Long" was released as the opening track on the Beatles second UK album With the Beatles in 1963, Credited to Lennon/McCartney, it was a composition totally written by John Lennon - alone, even if Paul McCartney tried to claim some credit for it years after Lennon passed away, but John flat out claimed in one of his last interviews that he wrote this one without Paul. Well, I know who’s story I believe, and his first name doesn’t start with a P.

The Beatles recorded this song on July 30, 1963 in two sessions and finished it up 3 weeks after that. The original release in the UK took place on 22 November 1963. In the U.S., "It Won't Be Long" first appeared on Meet the Beatles! LP, and was released on January 20, 1964. The lineup for this one was: John Lennon – Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar; Paul McCartney – Backing Vocal, Bass; George Harrison – Backing Vocal, Lead Guitar; Ringo Starr – Drums… with George Martin – producer.

To vote in this week's Beatles poll and rate this song, just click on this link: Beatles Weekly Poll.

Last week at the Beatles poll we answered this question: Rate the Beatles song, “A Day in the Life”, from zero (lowest) to 10 (highest).

“A Day in the Life”, from an old, cool poster making it look like the front page of a newspaper.

Well, figures that it would take this song to not only overtake first place in the Beatles song rating standings, but it saw for its 10 rating – the second highest rating for any song ever rated on the domain, taking in 99.8% of the vote! Hard to believe that out of the 2,404 voters, 4 didn’t see this one as a 10, as that’s how great a song I think it is. To see the full, final results from this poll, just click on here: Beatles Weekly Poll – week 584. Plus, you can also check out the results and standings at The Beatles Song Ratings and Standings page.

Time to close up another Poll Post….I guess with a long Mumble Jumble close to it…. Yes, last week the U.S Supreme Court took its biggest shit on the American people ever, the very people who they are supposed to protect, and in 2 different rulings yet. One involved gun control, overturning state laws that made it harder for people to carry concealed weapons in public (and in doing so, now makes us who live here all less safe), while the other ruling involved the rights of woman to choose what to do with their bodies. Or should I say - the taking away of the rights of woman to choose – unless they want to carry a gun on them along with carrying a baby that they will be forced to have and raise. That in turn will make us all less safe, too, as unwanted babies usually grow up to become troubled adults that in turn end up on the wrong side of the law who maybe one day will mug you or do something even worst to you or a loved one. But just think, an unwanted, unloved kid who grows into a bad adult will be able to carry a concealed weapon now anywhere in the country, and just think of want that might lead to one day.

What gets me is 5 of the 6 out of control conservative judges, all got on to that court after being appointed by 2 different right-wing presidents (one worse than the other) who both lost the popular vote and only took office thanks to the insane Electoral Collage. So thanks to that, those in the minority rule in this stupid, broken and messed up country where I live, and even long after these terrible leaders were finally kicked out of office by the people (it's like Bush Jr and Trump are still in control today). It's the everyday people like you and me who are the ones who have to pay the price in the end for this BS, since the Dems do nothing to stop this kind of stuff once they take power. I mean, did even one elected Democrat write up a bill to get rid of the Electoral College? No! It's almost not even worth talking about this since the madness just keeps happening no matter what is said. The USA is a terrible run country, that's clear, and it's been a terrible place to have to live and work for all of the time I've been around (that’s a long time), and I don't see it getting any better until the good people of this country open up their eyes for once and come out in droves this November to vote against the bad people who make the terrible laws that we are forced to live by. We need to all vote against anybody who is to the right of what you believe in, since the right is always wrong! If you don’t do this, the bad guys will just keep winning - even when they are out of power they win, and last week’s 2 rulings proved just that. So goes life in the old US of A, its run by brainless fools, and that’s what makes this country a terrible place to live. But don’t listen to the conservatives who always have the same tired answer to what I just stated: “America, love it or leave it!” I always apply back to that BS with a line something like this: “I was born here and I’m not going anywhere, this isn’t only your country, it’s mine too and I’m gonna vote and change what is wrong with this country so it can be great for once”. But the only problem with that statement is that I can’t do it alone, the majority has to vote and speak up too, and while the majority agrees with my side of this, most on my side don’t vote or do anything to stop this madness. That’s a sad fact! Unless everybody gets mad enough and votes in droves this November, even the wanted and loved babies being born today will continue to be slaughtered like pigs in their first-grade classrooms by sick people who can still go out and buy automatic assault weapons that you feel shouldn’t be sold… but they are sold since the republican politicians who makes the laws and who you didn’t vote against – are still in charge of making these insane laws time after time again. So please make sure you vote next time!

It would be nice if I could for just one week, close out the Poll Post saying something positive, like saying that my country just banned all automatic assault weapons, or even better…. The moron conservatives on the (un)Supreme Court, all decided to retire at the very same time, tomorrow morning! But as another republican sang many years ago "Dream on, dream on", as such dreams will never come true. Only those in the wrong seem to win in this fucked up country!.... But okay, let me dream on just a bit…. Perhaps next week I'll be able to close this Poll Post out on a positive note (yeah, dream on!). But not this week, not after what those fuckers ruled on last week, that's impossible for this week’s Poll Post. But do try to stay as safe as you can, and in today’s America, that means staying inside your house 24/7 with your doors all locked, and don’t even think about making love to your mate if you don’t want any (more) children, unless one of you are sterile – or a female over age 60, since Clarence Thomas now wants to take away all forms of birth control, too, while outlawing your gay son or daughter and anybody else who isn’t just like he and his sick wife.

Yeah, isn’t that a great positive way to end a Poll Post! All I can say is, for this week anyway, blame the morons like Clarence Thomas for it…. and perhaps yourself for never taking the time to vote!
