Poole’s Polls: April 2011

Well hello there! I decided not to put this month’s poll up yesterday because there was enough ridiculousness going on as it was. I didn’t need you lot thinking that my poll was a joke! (It’s tough not using that last sentence as sleazy inuendo, but I’ll try to carry on).

Welcome once again to my monthly questionaire to help the fine folks of DOOM figure out what you love and what you’re so disinterested in you couldn’t be bothered to click a button beside their name. It’s the electronic version of the colluseum and you’re Cesar.

Let’s get on with this shall we?


Congratulations goes to March’s winner Wonder Woman!

You managed to trounce the competition (especially Super Girl who, it appears, nobody likes) and win our hearts once again just in time for a new TV show. I bet the actress playing her now is happy she doesn’t have to squeeze into the old costume.


This month I’ve decided to focus on those cracking tunes that won’t leave your head. The ones that you end up singing in the shower without even realising it. TV shows and films have had some great belting tunes over the years, but which is your favourite?


Have you heard of it? It’s kind of a big deal. There is this big black guy with a deep voice who hurts people. But his son is this whiny blonde kid who wants to kill him. Then there is a giant hairy thing and a little green thing who help him out. And this gay robot couple who follow them everywhere. Oh yeah and Han Solo. He’s a bad-ass. But most of all it has this great theme tune. BAH-BAH-Bububu-BAH-BAH-bububu-BAH-BAH-bububu-BAAAAAAAAAAAH!


Can he avenge his fellow Kryptonian’s brutal defeat last month at the hands of Wonder Woman? They say this film was cursed because of the fate of the actors in the movie, Margot Kidder became diagnosed as bipolar and Christopher Reeve famously became paralysed from the neck down… I was going to write some sort of “but hey the theme tune rocked, am I right?” end to that paragraph but I just depressed myself. Sorry.


Did you ever find yourself running for a bus and singing this song? Or jumping over the gate in your garden while pretending you were being chased by a giant boulder and singing this song? What do you mean that would be stupid? Yes, well, I obviously haven’t done it myself. That wouldn’t be cool… but… you see… DAH-DUH-DAH-DAAAAH duh-di-duhhhhhhh DAH-DAH-DAH-DAAAAAAAH DUUUH-DI-DUH-DUH-DUH!


I pity the foo’! Huh! I ain’t gettin’ on no damn plane! Huh! You a sucker! Huh! Say your prayers and eat your vitamins. No, wait, that last one was Hulk Hogan, nevermind. Anyway, if you lived in the 80s you watched The A-Team. And while the number of people killed was low, the rockingness of the theme tune was very high indeed. You’d be lying if you said the song wasn’t already in your head as soon as you read the name.


It’s hard to imagine a time before Will Smith was Will Smith but when he was The Fresh Prince there was a little bit of magic about him. He had a credible music career, for one. However, he was also the victim of playground bullying. Luckily, he had an uncle and auntie in a nice area who were able to take the troubled teen in. The theme tune to this hard hitting factual documentary was pretty good, even if he couldn’t pronounce “mirror”.


Dananananananananananananananananana BATMAN! dananananananana BATMAN! dananananananana BATMAN! BATMAN! BATMAN! DananananananananaNA! BATMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!

… I rest my case.


So, now that you’ve had a good time singing along, you must choose. Which one will bring honor to it’s composer and which one will you fast forward through in the great DVD of our lives.
