1998 POAW Survey Results
Welcome to the fourth survey of Eternal fans to be conducted on the Internet.
Sorry for the delay in posting the results! Although I now have a program which takes most of the work out of it, a combination of other commitments and good, old-fashioned laziness meant it took a couple of months to upload the results...
As usual, the numbers in brackets represent the result from last year, for comparison.
So here goes - the results for the 1998 Eternal survey!
1. What are your favourite Eternal songs ever? (Top 10)
Some new hits released since the last survey have come into the chart, and for the first time ever Just A Step From Heaven has been knocked from the top spot!
1. ( -) I Wanna Be The Only One 2. ( -) Angel Of Mine 3. ( 1) Just A Step From Heaven 4. ( 2) Power Of A Woman 5. ( 7) Crazy 6. ( 3) Stay =7. ( -) Don't You Love Me =7. ( 4) I Am Blessed 9. ( 5) Oh Baby I... 10. ( 8) Good Thing
2. Which is your favourite Eternal album?
It looks like Eternal's last release has gone down exceptionally well with the fans... or is it just because it's still fresh & new? Only next year's results will tell...
1. Before The Rain 2. Always & Forever 3. Greatest Hits 4. Power Of A Woman
3. What are your favourite Eternal videos? (Top 5)
Although no longer the most popular song, Just A Step From Heaven's video still gets well-deserved recognition as an Eternal classic! Meanwhile, the video for Power Of A Woman seems to have been forgotten in favour of their newer, also supremely cool, videos!
1. ( 2) Just A Step From Heaven 2. ( -) Don't You Love Me 3. ( -) I Wanna Be The Only One 4. ( 1) Power Of A Woman 5. ( -) Angel Of Mine
4. Who is your favourite member of Eternal?
It's an incredibly close one this, with Vernie having received just three more votes than either of the other two. This just goes to show, all three girls are essential to the group! (Last year's survey included Louise, who came tops).
1. (4) Vernie Bennett =2. (3) Kéllé Bryan =2. (2) Easther Bennett

The average age has gone up this time... does that mean the teenage fan base has lost interest, or are Eternal just more mature?
