Yes, we know no one in their right mind pays attention to the polls we post at "Politics, Culture and Other Wastes of Time."
Nevertheless, I think it is good for those of you who are sick about seeing polls which ask if Donald Duck or Mickey Mouse should be our president, to contemplate over something that is perhaps even more meaningless.
A good friend of mine named Elizabeth Summerfield (not real name) from Danville, Va., who now attends a four-year school known for binge drinking and frisbee derbies, is a big fan of the Canadian band Rush, whose hit songs include the likes of "Big Money," " Distant Early Warning," "Tom Sawyer" and "Time Stand Still" among many, many others. Rush was considered heavy metal when they hit it big (well, they only have one top 40 hit), but now bands like Slayer make them look like our next band.....
A Flock of Seagulls was one of the greatest band in rock and roll history.....according to a hair-stylist magazine, which I don't read. (I am straight, and I have a crush on a Croatian girl who is 15 years younger than me to prove it! Of course, she has a boyfriend. Like Uma Thurman, she was probably born with one.....)
AFOS is best known for hit singles like "I Ran" and "Space Age Love Song." They actually have more top 40 hits to their credit than Rush. And, therefore, in my view, they are---of course!--- the better band:)
