Results of my Oddball Songs Survey
Here they are; just in time for May Fools' Day. This time I asked for up to 5
songs which you considered "oddball" - that is, songs that don't fit in with
the rest of the output of an artist.
I got 30 people to cast votes. (Once again, just to fool you into
thinking it was an honest contest, I didn't vote myself.)
As usual, I got plenty of songs which didn't fit the rules (either stuff from
the 60s, or songs by artists that didn't have much of a total output, making it
harder to determine what's "oddball" about a particular side). As usual, when
it comes time to make a show out of this, I'll simply disregard anything that
doesn't fit the rules. If you ignore the rules that I post, I have no problem
ignoring your votes.
So here are the results. But first, the boring statistics:
Not much in the way of patterns. Only a very few songs got more than a single
vote (those titles are marked with an asterisk). This is actually a good sign;
it means you guys gave it a lot of thought. In this case however, I won't try
to rank them, but simply list the results, in the order that I received the
ballots. I'll just pick and choose from the results and construct a show.
