Duranie Homework: Rank ASTRONAUT!

Last week, I asked people to rank Pop Trash from their least favorite song to their most favorite song.  I now have the results from last week!  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. Fragment
  2. Kiss Goodbye
  3. Lava Lamp
  4. Starting to Remember
  5. Hallucinating Elvis
  6. The Sun Doesn’t Shine Forever
  7. Lady Xanax
  8. Someone Else Not Me
  9. Mars Meets Venus
  10. Last Day On Earth
  11. Playing With Uranium
  12. Pop Trash Movie

Anything surprise you?  This album had some strange results.  There was little agreement beyond not liking the two very short songs of Fragment and Kiss Goodbye.  Other than that, there were songs that some people really liked and others did not at all.  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 ASTRONAUT 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:

  • (Reach Up for the) Sunrise
  • Want You More
  • What Happens Tomorrow
  • Astronaut
  • Bedroom Toys
  • Nice
  • Taste the Summer
  • Finest Hour
  • Chains
  • One of Those Days
  • Point of No Return
  • Still Breathing

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 ASTRONAUT!.  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 SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 14TH.

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 Astronaut.  From there, we will move on to the other albums.  Have fun!
