and in a poll that features huge favourites such as the Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Who, Beach Boys and Dylan, what did you expect?
Didn't expect - this is canon conformity central - anyone other than those to be winning, but I kind of hoped there would be some kind of breakout in favour of the greatest of all mid-sixties vocal groups, especially as I accidentally gave their vote to the Mothers. I just thought a bit of spread around would be nice, that some among the grazers would, like me, see this as an opportunity to big up a slightly more egregious aspect of their taste, rather than chew the rancid canon cud one more time. I mean, this was the year I turned 18, peak engagement, and none of those acts are duds: the Airplane's debut wasn't all that, and probably deserves 0, but the Springfield's debut was pretty fucking ace, even sodding Donovan had a great year.
So, hope sprang, and crashed.
