Quote from: Lethe on September 07, 2010, 11:52:26 AMBut where is the cross-dressing?
Quote from: ukrneal on September 07, 2010, 12:10:03 PMThere are a few surprising omissions in my opinion: Prokofiev Peter and the WolfVerdi OtelloHolst The PlanetsRimsky-K: ScheherezadeI would also, personally, have limited the composers to three works in order to make room for more variety of composers. If we did that now, we would have to vote off a few works and replace them with something (perhaps from the same person whose choice got the boot). I would try to focus on composers who have been left out myself (so Prokofiev and Verdi, good as they are, would have less of a priority for me from the 4 I mentioned). Just a thought. If one is looking to have a few polls, this might be fun.

Quote from: Bulldog on September 07, 2010, 12:32:27 PMI can't see a reason for reconsideration of any aspect of the poll. Dave gave us well-defined parameters, and each of us carried through honestly.As for certain well-known works that are not on the list, let's keep in mind that nobody who submitted entries included those works. We made our choices based on our priorities; if you don't like the results, you only have yourself to blame. So, case closed.Now if Dave wants to go over the 100 mark in order for those popular works to be included, that's his choice to make. He's the boss of this thread, and I'll certainly go along with his mandates.While I'm on this little rant, I have to say that I get real tired of board members grousing about polls on the board. A member plans a poll, develops and initiates it, then records the results. What he/she often gets in return is a bunch of grumpy responses or replies that are non-responsive. If you don't like a poll, don't participate. If you think there's a better way to do the poll, start your own.Another thing that bugs me are the folks who essentially say, "Oh, I can't possibly make this decision. It's too hard." What rubbish!!! Each of us makes multiple decisions every day that are much more significant than making a list of a few recordings.Well, I'm off to the supermarket to buy tonight's dinner. It might be too hard to decide what to eat, given all the choices at my disposal.

Quote from: ChamberNut on September 07, 2010, 01:57:21 PMI think Don said it best. I like this list, because it is our list, with our input. It is unique. I think this thread should be pin-marked for new users.Let's just hope that perhaps this list of 100 GMG is Volume I! Volume II may be in the planning stages.
Quote from: ukrneal on September 07, 2010, 12:56:52 PMNo idea why you ranted at me. I am neither unhappy with the results nor upset with the process. I was merely making suggestions if other criteria were to be considered (as well as observing some interesting and popular omissions). Perhaps you were just hungary (I get grumpy myself when I haven't eaten).
Quote from: Bulldog on September 07, 2010, 02:10:47 PMThat's a good one.
Quote from: DavidRoss on September 07, 2010, 02:13:51 PMYeah, but what did you get for dinner tonight? Tamales? (I'm making red beans and rice with Louisiana hot sausage.)
