Duranie Homework: RANK PAPER GODS!

Last week, I asked people to rank All You Need Is Now 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. Networker Nation
  2. Early Summer Nerves
  3. Too Close to the Sun
  4. A Diamond in the Mind
  5. Return to Now
  6. Leave a Light On
  7. Other People’s Lives
  8. Safe
  9. Mediterranea
  10. Blame the Machines
  11. Runway Runway
  12. Girl Panic
  13. The Man Who Stole a Leopard
  14. Being Followed
  15. Too Bad You’re So Beautiful
  16. Before the Rain
  17. All You Need Is Now

Anything surprise you?  I was not surprised that All You Need Is Now was close to the top.  I was pleasantly surprised that Before the Rain was also near the top as it is a favorite of mine.  It is also clear that people were not fond of the extra/bonus tracks for this album.  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 PAPER GODS 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:

  • Paper Gods
  • Last Night in the City
  • You Kill Me with Silence
  • Pressure Off
  • Face for Today
  • Danceophobia
  • What Are the Chances?
  • Sunset Garage
  • Change the Skyline
  • Butterfly Girl
  • Only in Dreams
  • The Universe Alone
  • Planet Roaring
  • Valentine Stones
  • Northern Lights
  • On Evil Beach
  • Cinderella Ride

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 PAPER GODS!!  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, MARCH 6TH.

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 Paper Gods.  From there, we will rank the favorites!  Have fun!
