Forgot about that one.

Now, Screwtape, it's just a matter of figuring out a good system for voting for albums. It's difficult since this is more of a ratio kind of thing.
Every album gets at least one song. That's 25 spots including Buddha of Suburbia and Labyrinth soundtracks. That leaves 39 spots. If we do a multiple choice poll asking which 10 albums deserve more than one song, that will give us a good ratio of which albums are more heavily liked and we can do the math after the fact. It's not perfect but like I said we can do the math after the fact.

The album we are using are:
David Bowie (1967)
Space Oddity (1969)
The Man Who Sold the World (1970)
Hunky Dory (1971)
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972)
Aladdin Sane (1973)
Pin Ups (1973)
Diamond Dogs (1974)
Young Americans (1975)
Station to Station (1976)
Low (1977)
"Heroes" (1977)
Lodger (1979)
Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) (1980)
Let's Dance (1983)
Tonight (1984)
Labyrinth Soundtrack (1986)
Never Let Me Down (1987)
Black Tie White Noise (1993)
The Buddha of Suburbia (1993)
Outside (1995)
Earthling (1997)
'hours...' (1999)
Heathen (2002)
Reality (2003)

What about various b-sides and singles?

His version of All the Young Dudes, Velvet Goldmine, and John I'm Only Dancing need to be included.

I'll work on a list of rarities. That leaves 38 spots and will be easier to calculate.

That's similar to what I was thinking. Plus the Non-Album Tracks version.

I'll do the polling if you want me to, though I will need YLB or LeMel to pick up the polls for me when I go to Atlanta later in the month.

I'm going to have a fairly busy April/May with school and drama-related stuff, but I'll try and pick up the slack if you need me.

Do you want to make the album poll now? Get this thing in motion?

Memory of a Free Festival? Or maybe I just have the single version of it.

That's the only one I could think of.

Sounds like a plan. I suppose we'll figure out the exact spots after some voting occurs.

I'll try to explain the whole thing in the first post.
