Voting has now closed in the third annual poll to find the fan’s favourite Alfie Boe song (recorded) and the top ten is in a handy playlist for you:
There are just four songs that survived from the 2014 poll and of these four, just two have been voted into the top ten in all three polls so far.
In 2015, the top ten looked like this:
- Addio Sogni Di Gloria
- Keep Me In Your Heart
- A Gaelic Blessing
- Bring Him Home
- A Living Prayer
- Nessun Dorma
- My Heart is Yours
- Rank Strangers
- Forever Young
- Je Crois Entendre Encore
The first thing that jumps out is that the top two don’t even feature this time which means my favourite song isn’t there…although another favourite, Dimming of the Day has made it for the first time.
The second thing to note is that there is a distinct move away from the more classical side of Alfie’s repertoire, as Trust makes a strong return with four songs featured. The remaining six songs are one each from Storyteller, Serenata, Onward, Classic Quadrophenia, Bring Him Home and Alfie. If You Go Away is the only song to return to the top ten, having missed out in 2015 and Bring Him Home stays as the only musical theatre choice.
The top ten will start counting down from next week and will lead us right up to the start of the UK tour – anyone excited yet?
