A Head Full of Wishes 2014 survey results

in categories:

Thanks again to everyone who voted in this year's survey - voting was down to less than half of the previous couple of years - I guess I didn't harass people as much as usual. 62 people voted, on the plus side this does mean that you all had a better chance of being picked out of the hat in the draw - sadly it still means that only one person can get lucky and they've been emailed so if you haven't heard from me your name wasn't pulled out.

Thanks also to all the lovely things said about the web site, it gives me a warm glow. I was going to quote a couple here but it would seem a little vain - rest assured they were all very much appreciated!

Here's a quick summary of how things went you can see the full results over here.

Galaxie 500 album

On Fire was once again the favourite album, although the other two studio LPs are tucked in close behind.

Favourite Galaxie 500 album - On Fire

Tugboat overtook Fourth of July to top the favourite track poll.


Penthouse once again topped the list of favourite Luna albums with Bewitched giving it a run.

Favourite Luna album - Penthouse
23 Minutes in Brussels was, as always, the favourite Luna song although it wasn't as comfortable as usual at the top, with Indian Summer hot on its heels.

Damon & Naomi

Damon & Naomi's first album More Sad Hits has always topped the poll but as years progress it becomes clear that folk are digging into the rest of Damon & Naomi's catalogue. With Ghost was in a very healthy second place.

Favourite Damon & Naomi album - More Sad Hits

Surprisingly jumping out of mid-table to top the poll for favourite track was Laika

Dean & Britta

Dean & Britta's first album L'Avventura once again tops the poll, with only one vote separating the other two albums in the chase.

Favourite Dean & Britta album - L'Avventura

Once again Night Nurse is the favourite Dean & Britta track scoring twice as many votes as its nearest rival.

Dean Wareham

Dean Wareham's first year in the poll as a solo artist saw both of his albums polling well, with this year's eponymous LP taking top spot.
