Two more surveys

I’ve been remiss in plugging David Bruce Murray’s second “song of the decade” survey, this time for the 1990s. Mea culpa. He’s already to the final round but still, you’ve got time to get in on the action if you’ve missed out so far.

Daniel Mount is also running a survey to try to assess the degree of southern gospel fans’ familiarity with other genres. The methodology is a little uneven (for instance, there’re a lot of degrees of familiarity and types of awareness left out in the big jump from “have heard a song” of an artist, to “own a project”), and I’m not sure the results will be that unpredictable (sg folks know country and some CCM and probably a little of whatever’s on light rock and pop stations). But taking a survey is fun no matter, so there it is for what it’s worth.

    I agree I should have had something between - as in either “quite familiar” or “own at least one song” - but there were already 49 songs and 6 options per song = 294 options. I wasn’t sure how far I could push everyone’s patience!

    That was about my final last minute judgment call before hitting publish. Wrong call? Yeah, maybe.

    I am probably the only person who has such a vast range of music i like to listen to.On a normal 30 minute ride in to work ill listen to(in no particular order) Eminem,Fleetwood Mac,Guns and Roses,the Perrys,Glee,George Jones,Andrea Bocelli and the GVB so i think that may skew the survey lol.

    A few of the contemporary artists on Daniel Mount’s survey have not even released 5+ projects; they’re too new.

    There’s one day left in the 1990s Song Of The Decade poll. Two songs are in a close race for first place at the moment. The poll ends at midnight tonight (Thursday).
