Now that people have weighed in on Tim Curry, let's see if Hot Tuna does any better.
Let's get right to it.

soemhow, for this exercise, I think in terms of calling in my vote to Dave, which I would only do once per set...versus giving as many as 10 BOS votes on the board while listening. 

The result is that, while I can easily imagine some songs that would beat out Hot Tuna in a 1972 set, I can scarcely imagine a song I'd rather vote for in a 1979 set than Tim Curry.

I agree with Mark 100%, which is why I think a numerical rating would be a more effective if less poetic measure.

How easy is it to create a poll, btw?  I'm being lazy.

See TinkaJohn's thread in the Stream of Consciousness board. Or the short answer: wicked simple.

I deleted that silly thing....  but you can find a "post new poll" link (e.g. the link in Geoff's post above) on the main page of a board, where you post a new topic.
