Honorable mentions (26-30)
26. Boxer
27. Stay Lucky
28. She Loves You
29. The Backseat
30. The Patient Ferris Wheel

Interesting Stuff:

The song with the LEAST amount of votes/points on any of Gaslight's records: Red In The Morning

Lowest amount of points of any song (higher than zero): Left of the Dial

Songs receiving zero points: Baba O'Reilly and State of Love and Trust

Cover with the most amount of points: Once Upon A Time

Covers ranked (highest to lowest):
Once Upon A Time
I Do Not Hook Up
American Girl
I'm On Fire
Trusty Chords
Left of the Dial
Baba O'Reailly/State of Love and Trust

Amount of each record represented in the top 25:

Sink or Swim: 8/12 (66%)
Seņor and the Queen 4/4 (100%)
The '59 Sound 8/12 (66%)
American Slang 5/10 (50%)

Amount of difference in points between Red at Night and Red in the Morning: 32 points

Red at Night was 1 person's 2nd favorite Gaslight song

She Loves You received a surprising amount of top 25 votes yet not enough to bring it up from the Honorable Mentions section

You guys have a lot of trouble spelling some of the song titles. In some cases, they were actually wrong (High and Lonesome)

Only ONE person voted for a song twice in their top 25. I recorded the higher vote and disregarded the lower vote

Three songs that appeared together in the top 5 the most: 1930, Blue Jeans and White T-Shirts and Wherefore Art Thou, Elvis? (Seems that if you like one, you like the other two pretty strongly as well)

7 points separated the 14th from the 19th favorite song.

1 point separated songs 3 and 4

1 point separated songs 7 and 8

3 points separated songs 23 and 25




That's it for now. Hope you guys had a blast with this. I know I did. Let's do this again in 5 years or so Smile

Wow, these results are really interesting! I think everyone did a great job predicting what the top 5 would be. 1930 was an obvious #1, but there are a few surprises too. I'm shocked that The Backseat didn't crack the top 25!

Vibes, thank you soooooo much for all of your hard work and for organizing this poll. You're a rockstar!!

Wait, Red In The Morning got *last*? I'm shocked. One of the best song of SOS. I had it at #11 overall.

Disappointed TSOJ wasn't higher. Such a perfect song. Hopefully it will go up next time =P.

I take it because you didn't even mention it in the covers God's Gonna Cut You Down didn't get any votes as well? Thought about putting that at 25. Kinda surprised it didn't chart. Maybe not enough people know it exists.

Can you tell us how many first place votes each song got?

haha. the top four are all the top four i predicted. and the amount of songs from each record represented in the top 25 are pretty close to the amounts i chose, albeit not the same order. i didn't include covers...i just forgot about it til i was done with my list, and by then i didn't feel like trying to figure it out again, but i doubt it would have changed my list much, but if i included any covers they would have been "left of the dial" and "once upon a time".

i'm surprised that "we're getting a divorce" is only #18, people go nuts for song, esp. considering DCSC rated higher...

overall, i'd say the top 25 would make a kickass setlist. vibes, maybe you should email that to the band. the fan chosen top 25. haha. seriously though, thanks for doing all the work on this.

1. Bring It On
2. Meet Me By The River's Edge
3. Stay Lucky
4. Miles Davis & the Cool
5. The Diamond Church Street Choir

I guess I favor the last 2 albums more than the average fan. Didn't vote, but this would've been my top 5... Bring It On is my favorite song of all time.
