Be honest and don't let your favorite composer blur your objective judgment.

I'm surprised he didn't put himself on the list.

Brahms loved her for good reason...

This is gonna be a skewed vote, with most men probably voting for a woman. And men are very likely in the majority here. So perhaps we should vote for women and men separately. Or else one could achieve justice by giving one woman's vote the weight of ten male votes  8)  :D ;D

PS: in real life, we also have separate beauty contests for men and women

Is this a poll on which composer we think is most attractive or which one is objectively the most attractive?  I'm not voting until that's answered... or the subject of an invective-laced 500-post thread.

Sorry, but physical attraction is all on the subjective end.

That's what I was thinking when I read the preceding question. But then, it's probably not completely subjective. I'd say we are geared to finding certain physical attributes attractive (this can, to some extent, be experimentally tested). However, many people can still swim against the current and find beauty in persons - or anything else, for that matter, who/that most others may not find attractive.
