Duranie Homework: Rank NOTORIOUS!

Last week, I asked people to rank the Seven and the Ragged Tiger album from their least favorite song to their most favorite song.  I had a number of people participate and the number is increasing (although I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to have more)!  I now have the results!  Based on the participants’ responses, here is how the fan community ranked the songs off the first album from LEAST favorite to MOST favorite:

  1. I Take the Dice
  2. (I’m Looking For) Cracks in the Pavement
  3. Of Crime and Passion
  4. The Reflex
  5. Union of the Snake
  6. Shadows On Your Side
  7. Tiger Tiger
  8. New Moon on Monday
  9. The Seventh Stranger

Anything surprise you?  I was not surprised to see The Seventh Stranger at the top as it often ranks high in other polling and tasks we have done.  The same is true with New Moon on Monday.  I was surprised, though, to see Tiger Tiger at the 3rd spot!  I certainly would not have expected an instrumental to do so well.  Now, I can’t just let people sit back and enjoy the results.  Oh no, we need to move on!  Here is your new homework assignment!!

Directions:  You will rank the songs off NOTORIOUS from LEAST favorite to MOST favorite.  Please note:  In order to make your determination, you may need to re-listen to the album one or more times.

The songs that need to be included in your list are:

  • Notorious
  • American Science
  • Skin Trade
  • A Matter of Feeling
  • Hold Me
  • Vertigo
  • So Misled
  • Meet el Presidente
  • Winter Marches On
  • Proposition

How to turn in your homework:  Once you have completed your ranking and are ready to turn in your homework, you will need to head over to the Daily Duranie message board.  Specifically, you will post your homework in this thread here:  Rank NOTORIOUS thread.  Please note:  You may have to register for the boards in order to complete your assignment, if you are not already a member.    Of course, even after you post your assignment, you may want to go back to the thread in order to see others’ homework!  You can compare your homework to others as cheating does not exist for this assignment!

Your assignment is DUE by SATURDAY, DECEMBER 26TH.

What is your assignment worth?  It is worth being a part of the larger fan community and having YOUR opinion count!  Besides, this is all just for FUN!!!  Another recommendation is not to think TOO MUCH!  Just go with your gut on how you rank the songs!

I will compile all of the results to determine how fans rank the songs off of Seven and the Ragged Tiger.  From there, we will move on to the other 11 albums.  Have fun!


One thought on “Duranie Homework: Rank NOTORIOUS!”

  1. surprised to see Of Crime and Passion so low in the list (not that I had time to wrestle with registering with the forum in order to participate!) – it’s in my Top 10 Duran songs (or possibly 20 – depending on the day!), especially for the lyrics!
