Hello! ;D

This is the first in a series of polls I plan to make.
I want to know which Arena songs are the absolute most popular.
First off, the Songs From The Lions Cage. The Crying For Help songs will get their own poll, as part of The Cry EP.

That leaves us 5 songs. I don't want to give you just one choice... So I give you... three...
50% of 5 is 2,5.... so that makes 3... Or something...

Anyway...

Vote away!


This is PART1 A. PART1 B will be Pride. PART1 C will be The Cry EP, etc. ...
PART2 will start next month, and will narrow it all down. And eventually we'll have the ultimate Arena song. Or maybe two, or three... ;D

On January 9, 2009 I'll make a balance and untill then you are allowed to change your vote (because I know you guys are like the weather).

For now, please vote for the three best songs on Arena's first album.

"Favourite Arena Songs" polls:
- PART1 A (Songs From The Lions Cage)
- PART1 B (Pride)
- PART1 C (The Cry (EP))
- PART1 D (The Visitor)
- PART1 E (Immortal?)
- PART1 F (Contagion)
- PART1 G (Contagious, Contagium EPs)
- PART1 H (Pepper's Ghost)

For now, please vote for the three best songs on Arena's first album.

This is too complicated for me. I'l let Bupsie keep his 100% for a while  ;D

Try to vote three songs! That's better in the end. ;)

Nicky, here's some advice from me: Listen to these early albums! ;D

Hey Paco, I don't really agree with you leaving the Crying For Help songs out of this poll.

For example: Crying For Help IV is definately among my favourite thee tracks on 'Songs' but I can't vote on it! Now you are probably going to say that I can cast a vote on Only Child on The Cry instead and all will eventually even out, but I don't think it will to be honest...

I'm sure you are aware of the fact that many of the songs on The Cry are very different from the versions that appear on the regular studio-albums and I think Crying For Help IV is far superior to it's 'new version' on The Cry. I think there are (at least) three better songs to be found on this EP so I won't be able to vote on one of my favourite all-time Arena-tracks! That's a bit strange, isn't it? ;)

Another reason why I don't agree with you is that there's no Crying For Help I to be found on The Cry. What if this actually was my favourite track on Songs?

I'm not trying to spoil your great idea, I'm just trying to help (not crying for help  :D)

Tom



EDIT: I noticed the comments in your other poll. But still I don't agree, sorry! ;)

Well... what can I say...

I knew that some people would see it the way you see it. And I just had to choose between two choices.
I chose the other one, obviously.

Sorry mate!
Let's make the best of it! ;)

Okay, fair enough. But I won't vote on Songs From The Lions Cage then! :)

Yes, I love Crying For Help IV that much! :D

Valley Of The Kings, Jericho and Solomon are taking lead here.

Midas Vision seems to be the weakest link... Still there are two votes for it.

I really don't understand why Midas Vision gets beaten by Jericho. It's so much better! Oh well, opinions... ::)

Without doubt:
1. Jericho
2. Solomon
3. Valley Of the kings

Especially for Jericho, John Carson's voice is really terrific.
This album is exception for my habit. Solomon that has longer duration is beaten by Jericho.  *horns*

How long, Paco? Quite intrigued to find out how this progresses, only a shame there haven't been more voters.

Solomon and Jericho will represent "Songs From The Lions Cage" in the battle for the best Arena song of all time!!

Valley of the Kings, Jericho, Solomon.

I'm never very sure about Midas Vision... and I don't know why... :-\
...Is this just a dream I'm in?
