It's decisions like this that make people not take your polls serious.

Per


Just how seriously are people taking these polls - or any forum polls for that matter? I mean, how seriously can they be taken? Aren't they just a bit of fun?


Spot on, Matthew! But the real explaination is, that Elvis 70´s take on "A big hunk o´ love", really was re-arranged and one of the few 50´s songs he tackled seriously. "An American trilogy" was brilliant performed here, but doesn´t really differs that much from the other recorded versions from 1972. However, I will do a few poll later with missed masters like "Burning love", "It´s only love" and so on. It´s possible that I will include the single version of trilogy here.

End of the discussion!

PS: Elvisa, Matthew & poormadpeter: Thank you all for your support! This makes me in the mood fo doing the next poll soon. I´m so glad that "Raised on rock", just has 10 tracks.... :wink:
