Ultimate Box Set: Live Tracks Part 2!

Today and this week, we continue on with our task to pick the best 7 songs to represent Duran Duran’s amazing live performances.  We began this process by looking at the 50 most often played live songs by the band.  From there, people voted for the 7 songs that they feel best demonstrate the band’s mad skills live.  This week, then, we get rid of the 15 or so songs that were least chosen.  Based on this, there are 32 songs remaining.  After another round of voting this week, we will eliminate more songs that are not chosen often.  21 songs will remain and we will select the 7 that should be chosen for our Live Tracks on the Duran Duran Ultimate Box Set.

On that note, which 7 songs from this poll should be included in the Ultimate Box Set?

Now that you have voted again for live tracks, you might notice that some songs were removed.  I eliminated songs that received 2 or less votes.  These songs included:

  • All She Wants Is
  • Astronaut
  • Do You Believe in Shame
  • Hallucinating Elvis
  • Hold Me
  • Last Night in the City
  • Meet el Presidente
  • Night Boat
  • Nice
  • Nite-Runner
  • Red Carpet Massacre
  • Safe
  • Skin Trade
  • Some Like It Hot
  • Tiger Tiger
  • Too Much Information
  • Union of the Snake
  • Vertigo

I was not terribly surprised by any of those.  While I know that there are plenty of people who love each of those songs, people just think that there are better songs that represent Duran’s live shows.  I also recognize that it is pretty dang challenging to just pick 7 songs out of 50!  I know that I struggled.  Hopefully, this week will be a little easier because there are less choices.  If you voted for one of the songs above last time, you now have a new choice out of your 7.  I will be anxious to see which songs are pushed out this week!

On that note, happy voting!!!
