This feels anticlimactic to me because Cold Little Heart has already beaten what I consider a better Beach House song.

Ditto, I still think this BH track's better than the Kiwanuka one though, so Walk in the Park for me!

Walk in the Park

I got one new EOD pick out of this tournament - Sophia - so that's pretty nice.

Cold Little Heart.

I hope my nominee can go all the way! Even if I didn't actually vote for it all the way through...

Sure it is a predictable choice, but it is also a masterpiece. And let's face it, the critics are to blame here. How can it be only #9826 on AM and only the third highest track from that album? I feel that this is usually seen as the standout of Love & Hate by most fans, but critics somehow thought otherwise.

Beach House - Walk in the Park

I really hope that the songs in this tournament will end up doing well in our future polls, but I'm not sure that that's particularly likely.
