Slicing Up Eyeballs’ Best of Siouxsie and the Banshees: Vote for your 25 favorite songs

After a brief diversion, we’re back with the sixth installment in our ongoing artist poll series, this time asking you, the readers of Slicing Up Eyeballs, to help us rank every song released by legendary post-punks Siouxsie and the Banshees over the band’s 20-year career.

By our count, the Banshees released 176 studio-recorded songs between 1978 and 2002, and we’re asking you to select your favorites from that list so that we may assemble a definitive ranking, like we’ve done already with the oeuvres of The CureThe Smiths, R.E.M.Depeche Mode and New Order.

VOTING: Below you’ll find a ballot listing all 176 studio-recorded songs released by Siouxsie and the Banshees. What’s not included are live tracks, radio-session recordings, demos and remixes.

You’re welcome to vote for as many as 25 of your favorite songs released by the Banshees.

A few notes on all this:

  • We’re fairly confident that our list of 175 songs is comprehensive, but if there are any missing, there is a write-in option at the bottom of the poll. You can also email to alert us to any omissions, or if you’ve got any questions about song eligibility beyond the rules described above.
  • Though we generally shy away from listing different versions of the same song, we included a few in this poll because of the way they were prominently released, from the re-recorded songs that made up 1984’s The Thorn EP to “Mittageisen,” the German-language version of “Metal Postcard” that was released as a single.
  • The songs are listed in strict alphabetical order, meaning “The Killing Jar” will be in the T’s, not K’s.
  • While you can vote for up to 25 songs, they all will be weighed equally when the results are tallied. But if you’d like to share your ranked Top 25 lists with the rest of the Slicing Up Eyeballs readers, feel free to drop them in the comments below, and make your case.
  • And if you’re wondering about the Best of the ’80s Redux poll for 1982, we’re still tabulating the results (those fill-in-your-own-choices polls take longer than polls with choices like this one).

DEADLINE: Voting ends 5 p.m. EST Friday, Feb. 23, and results will be posted in a week or so.

Sound good? Then vote away.
