And the winner is....



The results are in: your favourite Salem Al Fakir song of all time is..."It's True". Voting was really close all through the competition, particularly between "Astronaut" and "It's True" so it was inevitable that one of them would be the winner in the end.

A worthy winner, and the best video so far, at least if you ask me :)

Interesting to see the difference between your own list and "the people's choice". I have to admit that a few of my favourites (that are on your list) were missing in the poll, though ... :)

I love that video too :)

I'm not too surprised by "It's True" winning as it's always been a massive fan-favourite, but I was particularly surprised that "Twelve Fingers" never made it to the poll as it's a classic!

Yep, I agree with you there ... Twelve Fingers should definitely have been somewhere in the upper part of that list! (Maybe I haven't been active enough in your previous polls? :)
