But I don't like them. What I've heard of their music is all kind of unoriginal and uninteresting. Their music is certainly not terrible, but not that good either. And so I always wonder why they have such a large and devoted cult behind them. This is why I asked this week's poll question. I wanted to see if you people were like me, or if you liked this highly celebrated group. Well, with your all-time low (bummer) 5 votes, you guys agreed with me. 80% of you said you did not like The Flaming Lips, and 20% said you thought their crazy live shows were fun, but the music still was no good. Nobody said they actually truly liked the band. So there you have it: people don't actually like The Flaming Lips. I guess.
Anyways, thanks for voting. Vote in this week's poll, too: the question is, "How should my lists be organized?" The impetus behind this question is that I'm not really sure whether it's more fun to read a list that counts down from the top (i.e. from #1 to #120) or one that counts up from the bottom (i.e. #120 to #1). I've toyed with both setups on Il Buono, but I'm not sure which is best.
