Duranie Homework: Rank Seven and the Ragged Tiger!

Last week, I asked people to rank the Rio album from their least favorite song to their most favorite song.  I had a number of people participate (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. Last Chance on the Stairway
  2. My Own Way
  3. Hungry Like the Wolf
  4. Lonely in Your Nightmare
  5. Tie between Rio
  6. and The Chauffeur
  7. Save a Prayer
  8. Hold Back the Rain
  9. New Religion

Anything surprise you?  I was not surprised to see New Religion at the top as it often ranks high in other polling and tasks we have done.  The same is true with Hold Back the Rain.  I was surprised, though, to see the Chauffeur tied with Rio at 5!  I certainly would have expected it to be higher.  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 SEVEN AND THE RAGGED TIGER 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:

  • The Reflex
  • New Moon on Monday
  • (I’m Looking for) Cracks in the Pavement
  • I Take the Dice
  • Of Crime and Passion
  • Union of the Snake
  • Shadows on Your Side
  • Tiger Tiger
  • The Seventh Stranger

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 Seven and the Ragged Tiger 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 19TH.

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 Seven and the Ragged Tiger!”

  1. “Seven” is one of my favorite DD albums. It was the second one I ever gotten on cassette back in 1986. I got “Rio” the same year. Also, I found out last year that DD did a demo song called “Seven & The Ragged Tiger”. It was before they came up with “The Seventh Stranger”. here is the YouTube link:
    I am sure you guys knew this already being hardcore Duranies like myself. Also, they are coming to the Barclays Center in NYC in April. I wish I could go but their tickets are out of my price range. I hate never having money.
