Ok I'm going to vote against Marigold with the hopes that The Maharal will change his other vote and let the dead surfers live.

My other vote is up in the air at this point. Probably whatever from IC / HC has the most likelihood to go.

Sad to see Rewards go.

Silver Snail

Will leave LSM for now - I'm surprised Snail is still alive.

I'm confused - why is Rewards gone but not Marigold? They both got 3 votes.

Women of War (fun song, but seems done by a parodic band)
Andro Queen (very moving acoustic early versions, but turned into a blob of reverb and uninspired drumming, damn you Gil Norton)

Please Don't Go - blandest Pixies 2.0 song
Women of War - only to try to save Andro Queen for another round (yeah, maybe the drumming is a bit uninspired, but that song is still a gem)

OK, I vote to kill 'Snail' and 'Caught in a Dream'

Totals:

Andro 3
Please Donít Go 2
Snail 5
WoW 3
Caught in a Dream 2

I love 'Andro'. I understand a lot of the criticism of the song around here, but under all that production is a really good song. Surprised to see it listed so early.

Since 'Andro' is tied w 'WoW', I'm tempted to let it live another round just to see what happens. I brought this game here. I can do that, right?

Snail is dead. New round.

I've started to really enjoy Please Don't Go. It doesn't sound finished to me though, like 'the happening' is a much grander 'the thing' - id like to hear a grander version of Please don't go.

I like the raw minimalistic version of Please Don't Go more than the album version... This song doesn't call for 'grand' to my hears

Los Surfers Muertos and Please Don't Go. Don't hold much hate for either. Tempted to go for Silver Bullet. Or Hey Debussy which is a very fun song but it's criminal that some of the other demos have gone before it.

The rationale behind my votes is largely based on things like

a) if it's a demo does it sound "finished" enough to compete with official releases? Hence goodbye to Chapel Hill and Please Don't Go which sound like first takes of incomplete tunes

b) is it tainted by compression (most of IC and HC, nothing on BTE has this problem to my ears, nor the demos)

c) that's about it

Many of my favorite 2.0 songs are already voted off or soon to be, but I'll still play along to the better end.

As I've said, the worst song that FBF has ever done is far superior to the entire catalogues of the Beatles, Prince, etc (not Dylan) so it's hard to vote off any of them, but duty calls when it's time for forum survivor
