Check out the most recent eltonfan.net new. It will introduce you to the project called Wonderful Crazy Year which I have been planning with Stephan. You get a chance to vote on the whole catalog, including also soundtracks and live albums (I originally planned not to include them but Stephan wanted to add them so... I wasn't against that so his opinion won!).

You'll find the newest poll by clicking the banner. The voting is completely the same like here in Elton John Song of the Day polls, except that now we have points ranging from zero to ten.

I'm very excited about this thing, and I hope you'll get excited too and rate the recordings! The results will be counted automatically so in the end it will be very easy to create versatile statistics - at least a complete list from the best recording to the worst, and an album list from the best to the worst.

Happy voting! rolleyes.gif

Songs are lightning
When they strike you
You hang on every line
They’re bits of history
Don’t try to change ‘em
It’s how you’re feeling at the time

Alright! Don't worry, we will keep the poll open more longer than a week. And after we're done with his previous albums (starting from Empty Sky), we will rate WCN again in the end so we can get more ratings for those additional bonus tracks. smile.gif

More detailed information will come in the end when we will be able to see more answers than 100, which is the current limit. So, don't worry, your answers will be saved but I and Stephan can't see them yet before we pay for it. We will probably pay for one month to see all answers when the final polls are closing.

This thread will be updated as soon as forthcoming albums reach their answers limit.

Well there is some kind of a correlation with my own favorites and these results. But it's not very strong. My two least favorites, "Guilty Pleasure" and "In The Name Of You" are in the middle. On the other hand my two favorites, "The Open Chord" and "A Good Heart" are in the better half of the tracks.

Yea I like those too. Glad they were in the top 5 at least.

I've Got Two Wings should be ranked higher, No Monsters too.

I'm beginning to enjoy England and America, But I wouldn't have it at the top. That kind of surprised me. unsure.gif




I just finished voting for Madman, Lots of 10 star songs on there. biggrin.gif

Coming up after these...: Don't Shoot Me, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (with Live at Hammersmith 1973 live album from the super deluxe edition) and Caribou. The further the project goes, the more lists and statistics I'm going to make as well.

We also might upgrade the account, because there is a limit which doesn't allow to delete more than 50 answers (no, the cheater still hasn't stopped to answer multiple times to the surveys...). It's going to be expensive if we upgrade it for one year, but the benefits could be worth it. The amount of survey answers in the near future will be decisive.

It seems impossible that Seasons is getting 5,77.

I guess many people voting "Theme (The First Kiss)/Seasons" are paying attention only to the first part of the title ("Theme The First Kiss") consequentely rating only that instrumental (in fact 5,77 is close to the rates of the other instrumentals on this album).

It's got a low rating mainly because of an annoying cheater who has given it the lowest score multiple times. Same with "Michelle's Song". But don't worry, I've decided to upgrade the account for one year (which will be the time that the project will last) - then I'll be able to remove all cheat answers and deliver more realistic results - and I will also be able to count in more than 100 first answers.

I have no idea what would have happened.

Did you just answer to all the surveys simultaneously? Remember, only one answer per person is allowed. There are two fans voting multiple times in the same surveys which may lead to incorrect results at certain times. I am deleting those multiple answers to bring more realistic results. One of the cheaters has for instance given very low scores for "Ticking", making it's average score drop. The only way to fix it is to delete those answers.

I answered to all the surveys week by week, as the poll were available, for the first four albums.

The first quarter of results have been published! A very interesting list, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road topping the albums list and "Love Lies Bleeding" topping the individual recordings list!

What is going on there? Everytime I look at number of votes it is a different number. Number goes up then down.
