Led, do you honestly think that out of all of the songs, Dog Years is the best one?
:o Did he misunderstand the question too?....

It never occurred to me that it could be misunderstood until ReGor voted for Dog Years.  I thought that surely he can't think that, but then I thought maybe he misunderstood the question.

By the way, I am sorry this isn't panning out the way I had hoped.  I think Mick is still not feeling well and I don't want to bother him.  As for Segue.....he is likely off listening to his new favorite band.  Or something.  :unsure:   I'll see if I can find him and stir up some controversy.  :guitar:

ReGor must have misunderstood the question. Led I am not so sure. I really enjoy the guy but his taste surprises me on occasion. I actually misunderstood it at first cus I was so used to picking the worst of the bunch. As far as the recovery part its ok if it doesn't work out today. This thing I swear is worse than the last time and I am drugged and sleeping most of the time. If it works out that would be great too. You are awesome for even trying to be honest... :rose: :)

Even I wouldn't vote for Dog Years...and I'm probably one of the biggest fans of that song on the planet.

Neither would I even though Virtuality is a much much much worse song.

Best of the bunch = one you like the most.

I don't think that's confusing at all. I think people are still stuck on what they disliked from the other polls.

I'd say this is right...though I might put Vital Signs first, even.

All of the Hemispheres lovers know that the only reason why we included it in the poll was to humor the Hemispheres haters.  

We are redeeming our Hemispheres song with this sunny :sundog:  poll.  :yes:

Maybe you should go back to the original post and put the word best in large print or something.   There's an amazing amount of incomprehension going on so far.

I think the Rush gods had something to do with thwarting my festive plans for Narps' recovery.  :unsure:

I have warned folks on here countless times about this type of thing.  :scared:

So.  Be careful.  Beware.  Watch what you say about Rush and their music.  And watch where you step!  :ph34r:

The Rush Revenge is no fairy tale or fable.  :tempted:

Are you talking about Tiger Woods?  i thought he was run out of town years ago.  Apparently not.  But if he makes Narps happy, then he serves a good purpose.

I still think it's the Rush Revenge.  Happens every time.  When I make a big to-do over disliking an album, the songs from the album get stuck in my brain for weeks on end, 24/7.  Enough to drive anyone batty in no time flat.
