These are the final results of the vote (ended Mon, 29 Nov 1999) for the following question:

Should "Too Dizzy" have been included on the EMI rerelease of Never Let Me Down?
One of the marketing points about the EMI rereleases was that they remained "faithful to the original release". However, that appears not to include Too Dizzy, the song which was also stricken from the Virgin rerelease of the album.

Yes! I want an album faithful to the original release like all the others
No! Too Dizzy deserved to be buried
Who cares? I never listen to that album anyway

Are you disappointed at Bowie's apparent lack of interest in continuing the Outside trilogy?

Background: Bowie intimated in a recent interview that he is unlikely to do a followon to Outside any time soon, and this past weekend's news confirmed that any theatre production based on the work is effectively dead.

I'm devastated!! The promise of a Outside trilogy was my only reason for living.
Disappointed, but I'll survive. I thought Outside had tremendous promise.
Disappointed, but not surprised. Bowie seldom sticks to his word on future projects.
Don't particularly care. I just like to hear new material, whatever it's based on.
Happy! I hated that art-ritual murder thingamejig.
