    Round 2 - The Great Fixx Off! - - Favourite Song

    So let's find out what the top fan favorite Fixx tunes really are.

    Round 1 was conducted between mid-March and August 16, 2005 with over 100 participants. Round 2 will include the top 3 or 4 vote getters (or 5 in the event of a tie (Happy Landings & Lost Tracks))

    Then the final round(s) will begin, which will include the ONE leading vote
    getters from each disc to start the final FiXX-Offs". In the end, only one
    song will be standing!

    Round 2 is based on the votes present on August 16, 2005.

    Some albums have a clear winner, like Calm Animlas, 1011 Woodland, and Ink who each have one song dominating by an landslide. Most others have a very tight race going on like Reach The Beach, Walkabout, Shuttered Room, and Phantoms. I suspect there will be a poll or two where the winning song wins by one vote.

    Then there is the odds & ends Poll. Deeper & Deeper has just destroyed the other three songs in that poll. It's like 26 to 5 or something like that.

    Missing Links - I guess not a lot of people have Missing Links as it has the least amount of participants in both round 1 and round 2 polls. Missing Links was eventually released in the U.S. but has become hard to comeby nonetheless. I used to see it at Best Buy on occasion but it must have been a short run of inventory. Now, you can't even get it from Amazon unless you get a used one from an Amazon Associate.

    ML's

    Im sure the rest of you will back me on this one, but the crystal ice dub -ala reach the beach instrumental is worth the price of that cd alone! I had this song on the bside of the OTL2A 12" single, and i still use this song as a drawing lesson- i have the kiddies listen to the song, take notes on what i reminds them of, then turn their thoughts into a drawing- its amazing that 85%+ will come up with some kind of conflict, an isolated character, or a struggle- not tooo far away from the guy trying to reach the beach.


    meanwhile, there are some rare outakes on ML's for you sinners who dont own it yet!

    1. Sinking Island
    2. Stand Or Fall remixed
    3. Pushing Myself
    4. Digging Up The Rock
    5. I've Been Here Before
    6. Do What You Can
    7. Red Skies
    8. Crystal Ice Dub
    9. Venture Out

    these two next tracks are only on one of the versions CHECK before you buy!
    10. Two Different Views (original version)
    11. Going Without (original version)

    Wish the ALL ABOUT YOU was on this cd, hope it may surface on a future linx cd!
    Ithink it was on a euro cassette, as SP's site indicates...

    ciao~

    Round 2 polls end on February 4.

    Please vote if you haven't already.

    There are a few tight races going on for albums like Shuttered Room, Reach The Beach, Elemental and Want That Life.

    Others have clear winners like How Much Is Enough? from Ink, Driven Out from Calm Animals, and Deeper & Deeper from the Extra Fixxing poll.

    The Final Round is shaping up.
    Look for it next week.
