Great job BleuPanda!

As one of the old-timers here, I am clearly not aligned with the typical voter in this poll as I had Bjork at 163, Kate Bush at 46 and Joni Mitchell at 8. I enjoy being different than the rest of voters, especially in a forum like this one where almost everyone is quite civil.
