    A poll would be good. Maybe when everyone has voted we could do a poll of the top ten or something. And then the top 5 or 6 make it into the setlist. I don't mind doing it, that's if I can suss out how to do a poll that is!

    Just to be going on with, this is how it stands -

    Sea of Life - 5 votes.

    Rock the Nations/Hungary Years - 4 votes each

    Play it loud/Frozen Rainbow/Militia Guard/Suzy hold on - 3 votes each.

    There are quite a few songs on 2 and 1 vote. The idea is to vote for 5 or 6 songs, but some people have voted for 8-10 songs! And some people have voted for songs that were included on the last tour, so we might as well discard those songs seeing as this is all about bringing new songs to the setlist.

    If we do a poll, everybody needs to only give maybe 5 songs...and don't forget to include "Stallions.." if you want that one included as well.Think most of the board folks that already voted forgot that one since Biff already mentioned it in his posting...

    Er at this risk of sounding dim do you want to vote again with 5 new set list songs or are you happy with what we got.

    Might as well stick with what we have I suppose Wilks. If it comes to doing a poll, then we can always just count the first 5 or 6 songs of those people who have put down a shed load of songs.

    I dont want to sound defeatist but wouldnt it be a better idea to pick songs that no ones ever heard them do live before? I mean 'Killing ground?' lets pick something that will challenge em a bit for gods sake, something like 'Watching the Sky', 'Militia Guard', 'Out of Control', know what I mean?

    Totally agree Macc. The whole idea of this is to get Saxon playing songs live that they haven't played for many years, or never at all.

    OK, voting seems to have come to an end, so here are the results. These are the top 10 -

    Frozen Rainbow - 6 votes.

    Sea Of Life, Suzie Hold On - 5 votes

    Rock The Nations, Hungry Years - 4 votes

    Stand Up And Be Counted, Militia Guard, Great White "Biffalo" :lol:, Play it Loud, Midnight Rider - 3 votes.

    So that is the top 10 of votes. Seeing as Biff already mentioned playing Stallions Of The Highway, I suppose we will have to come up with the other 5 songs!

    I could do a poll, and you could vote for the 5 songs that you want to hear. I have never done a poll on here before though, so don't know if you can set it up like that. I'll try and suss it out!

    OK, I can't even find the link to the poll, let alone set it up! :lol:

    Just write your top 5 here. Seeing as the tour starts in less than a month, this is probably too late as the band would have started rehearsing by now. But what the hell, it'll be interesting anyway.

    Out of the 10 songs listed above, my top 5 are -

    Sea Of Life

    Stand Up And Be Counted

    Rock The Nations

    Suzie Hold On

    Frozen Rainbow

    Yeah we probably won't get to hear them Wilks, and probably wouldn't have gpt to hear them even if the poll was done 3 months ago! But like I said, it will be interesting to see what 5 songs everyone picks.

    Like you say, some real belters in there!

    Agreed one hundred percent with Suzie Hold On.I totally forgot about that song until I seen the video on the Chronicles dvd.Suzie is a great classic.

    There is now a poll on another thread if you want to get your votes in.
