We're nearing the end! How exciting!

Mari Boine - Goaskinviellja / Eagle Brother vs.
Amadou & Mariam-Je Pense a Toi

Jac Berrocal-Solaris vs.

The Cinematic Orchestra-Man with the Movie Camera

Angelique Kidjo-Olofoofo vs.
Amy MacDonald-Don't Tell Me That It's Over

Laura Viers-July Flame vs.
David Lynch and Lykke Li-I'm Waiting Here

I like all but one.
Winning guesses, 6/8 remain: "Cocinando", "July Flame", "The Man with the Movie Camera", "I'm Waiting Here", "Sans logique" and "Je Pense a Toi"
Preferred winners: "July Flame", "I'm Waiting Here", "Sans logique" and "Eagle Brother"

If I was forced to make a single prediction, like everyone else I'd probably say Amadou & Miriam will win.
Two songs play in my head over and over as the world ends: Father John Misty - "Pure Comedy" and Billie Eilish - "all the good girls go to hell."

This week, I devoted some extra listening to Devo and Ray Baretto to try to figure out why they're not connecting with me. (Obviously, they've made it this far based upon the nominations/votes of people whose taste I highly respect, and both are from genres I generally like.) Unfortunately, no luck yet, but I'll keep trying!

Interesting to see how "Mari Boine" and "Amadou & Mariam" perform against each other. A very painfull choice for me.

Last call!

No ties due to an uneven number of votes, but there are FIVE matches within one point. Please take this into account when voting.

In fact, let's have two votes today!

It took till the last ballot for this one.

Glad we were not buried under the deluge of Rank the Tracks.

Mari Boine - Goaskinviellja / Eagle Brother 4
Amadou & Mariam-Je Pense a Toi 11

Oh how the mighty have fallen! Two tournament favorites met and I expected a much closer match.

Cymande-The Message 3
The Rotary Connection-I Am the Black Gold of the Sun 12

Rotary Connection does it again.

Jac Berrocal-Solaris 7
Devo-Beautiful World 8

A shocker! Though don't feel too bad for Jac. This was tied until the last minute.

Mylene Farmer-Sans Logique 10
Dukes of Stratosphear-Vanishing Girl 5

A match that started close ended up being a decisive win for a possible down-bracket favorite.

Deodato-Super Strut 8
Ray Baretto-Cocinando 7

Ray's luck ran out as he came in for the tie but got the win snatched from him at the very end.

Ananda Shankar-Streets of Calcutta 6
The Cinematic Orchestra-Man with the Movie Camera 9

Was tied 6-6 but the Cinematic Orchestra took the last three votes.

Angelique Kidjo-Olofoofo 8
Amy MacDonald-Don't Tell Me That It's Over 7

Tied 6-6, then Angelique went 2-1 to snag a close victory.

Laura Viers-July Flame 9
David Lynch and Lykke Li-I'm Waiting Here 6

On to the Quarterfinals. Due to the Deodato/Cinematic, we are guaranteed at least one male-fronted act in the Final Four. But what's even more impressive is she beat THREE potential favorites (Nujabes, Archie Shepp, and now Lynch and Li). I thought all those songs stood a chance at the championship.

Laura Viers could well be the next "Soretsu"; a song that comes back from losing its group to win it all.

"July Flame" lost with only one point to "Sans Logique", which is also in the elite 8, so it's not that surprising.
