POLL: FINAL RESULTS | Classic Album Survivor
« on: August 27, 2015, 06:56:29 AM »
:welcome2: to the Classic Album Survivor. :pompoms: :pompoms: :pompoms:

You all know how this works now, simply vote for your LEAST favourite track in the list above, and the track with the most votes each round will leave! :D








Went for ‘Time To Say Goodbye’ it's the track I'm least likely to listen to out of choice but to be honest the whole album is gorgeous :inlove: This is gonna be a hard survivor. :D

So the first one to leave is....no surprise

Hear My Prayer


Although beautiful sung, it always felt a bit strange to translate such an iconic song.

That awful Hebrew March song has always been on my skip list since the album came out.

I'm not surprised that it's topping the poll - though it's not what I voted for. It's a victim of being out of place on this album  - much like Love Is War and The Climb for the previous album. Within it's proper setting it can be fantastic :)

I quite like 'Hear My Prayer'. I wouldn't put it that high either, but it didn't deserve to finish below...

Voted 'Time To Say Goodbye'. It may end up being my vote for the next five rounds at this rate. :snigger:

Well not for me (Really don't like the Titanic theme  ;) )

'Il Mio Cuore Va' is stunning.

I'm also confused that Hear my Prayer came last - yes I understand that it adds nothing to ND but Joe mashes the 2 versions up so often in live shows that I'm ok with it.

I also grew to love the Titanic theme - I now forget that the lyrics are slushy - the vocal is superb I think.

For me Hear My Prayer is just a pale shadow of the real thing. The word setting is clunky and diminishes the melody and the quasi-religious tone is at odds with the original lyrics. Can you tell I hate it?  :haha:

Yes I can tell Jude, and I agree.
One of the best versions of ND for me is Bents Park first time...no english, and a HUGE applause from the audience, still one of my favorites.

I have to add that I really don't like the My Heart Will Go On as original too. Never understood why it was such a huge hit worldwide, I find the melody and the verses quite repetitive and tiresome.
So I do prefer Joe's Italian version, but I will never like it much.

I somewhat agree with you about My Heart Will Go On. What I would say though is that it was a song for a film, where the repetitiveness is not necessarily obvious. Take that away and I think the song is great, but I do take your point. I also like the Italian (though that may be just because I don't have a clue about how Italian should sound  :haha: ) but I dislike switching between the two languages in one song.

For me, I am likely to vote out most of the "classical" tracks before I touch the "pop" ones.

Second out, quite convincingly, is Va Pensiero. It didn't strike me as an obvious hate figure personally but with nearly 50% of the vote, it's clear that the track doesn't hit the right notes with you guys and falls shy of a top 10 positioning.

Results so far:
11th: Va Pensiero (9/19 - 47.4%)
12th: Hear My Prayer


So get voting in the next round! :D
