Hello! After getting all the way down to 32 songs from 200, it's time to get down to our final 10. This will be done with a traditional tournament, single elimination, one-on-one, using our 32 remaining songs. I have seeded them randomly. We will do a do a standard tournament until we have 8 left, and then I will post a place to vote to save two of the 24 losers for the final round.
