    Okay, that's it for me. This will be my last vote. If you people can't recognize the beauty of Scythia's theme, it's just not worth bothering any more.

    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) = 11
    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 16
    China (Jasmine Flower) = 5
    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 22
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) = 17
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 15
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) 19 - 3 = 16
    Mediocre. Should not be in the top ten.
    Poland (Hej ide w las) 22 +1 = 23
    The best of the rest...
    Russia (Kalinka) = 6
    Sumeria (Hurrian Hymn 6 with original composition) = 12

    Scythia nooooooooo!!! :cry: So sad to see that one go, amazing track.


    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) = 11
    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 16
    China (Jasmine Flower) = 5
    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 22
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) = 17
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 15
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 16
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 23
    Russia (Kalinka) = 7 (6+1) Deserves to hang around a little longer. The medieval theme is really fun, always brings to mind a big circle of Russians doing their dance and speeding up and up as the music gets faster, all shouting a big 'Hey!' at the end :goodjob:
    Sumeria (Hurrian Hymn 6 with original composition) = 9 (12-1) It's cool that it's based on an ancient melody, but it's nowhere near as interesting as the other track that is as well (Greece).

    Two of my favorite themes are close to elimination- what to do?!...

    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) = 11
    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 16
    China (Jasmine Flower) = 6 (5 + 1) I feel like out of more "mellow" themes in the game this one has one of the best era progressions. Industrial and Atomic versions are not "bombastic" like Russia or Arabia's themes, but I find them pretty well done and emotional. Fun fact: China actually ALSO has choir in its themes, if you listen closely to the Insuatrial and Atomic chorus - that faint female "Ahh" in the background. Ironically, I will probably DOWNvote China after another civ gets eliminated before it - because replacing erhu with violins is almost a crime.
    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 22
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) = 17
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 12 (15 - 3) This theme just doesn't impress me no matter how much I listen to it. And I really tried to like it...
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 16
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 23
    Russia (Kalinka) = 7
    Sumeria (Hurrian Hymn 6 with original composition) = 9

    No... No... It's not gloomy! Did you hear the fantastic atomic theme? Scythia, why? Why? Why? Why?

    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) = 11-3=8 - I hear it almost constantly when there is USA in my game. And I want to think about building a great civilization, not about astronauts.
    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 16+1=17 - Majestic and good enough for upvote.
    China (Jasmine Flower) = 6
    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 22
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) = 17
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 12
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 16
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 23
    Russia (Kalinka) = 7
    Sumeria (Hurrian Hymn 6 with original composition) = 9


    R.I.P. Scythia, theme that deserved to the top ten. I will miss you.
    Now I'm going on YouTube and listen to the Scythian Atomic theme.

    Why...

    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) = 8 + 1 = 9 (I don't understand why people hate astronauts so much. And even *if* that criticism were somehow understandable (it isn't), then you're skipping out the Ancient, Medieval and Industrial US versions of the theme, all of which are great in surprisingly different ways (unlike Epitaph which is pretty much the same in every age with slightly different instruments). Easily the most uplifting and inspiring song for America in any Civ game ever, and one of the best in the entire Civilization series. I never tire of hearing America's theme. It is paced well, has unique interweaving melodies in later versions, and an emotional heart that many "epic" songs simply lack. It never overcompensates by doing a typical movie-OST-like sweep).
    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 17
    China (Jasmine Flower) = 6
    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 22
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) = 17
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 12
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 16
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 23
    Russia (Kalinka) = 7
    Sumeria (Hurrian Hymn 6 with original composition) = 9 - 3 = 6 (Nice enough song, but lacks anything truly memorable or hummable needed to remain).

    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 12
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 17 (16 + 1) -- Like the leaders, they're doing a great job with DLC music. Poland has the best theme in the game, but IMO Persia isn't far behind.
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 23
    Russia (Kalinka) = 6 (9 - 3) -- It's not bad, but the other remaining themes are better.

    The Motherland calls!

    As for Arabia while I definitely like the theme I do think it is the least memorable of the remaining as it shares a lot of stylistic similarities to Egypt and Sumeria.

    I'll admit that the atomic era is quite good, but Japan's theme is unpleasant to listen to in most other eras.

    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 12
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 17

    What can I say? I'm a sucker for Mesopotamia. Also, listen to @mzmaster 's sick synesthesia cover.

    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 15 (14 + 1) together with Persia, I consider this the most interesting that is still left. Since Persia is doing better...
    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 22
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) = 14
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 12
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 17
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 20 (23 - 3) A really good theme. Should be top 5 in any case, but not the best overall.
    Russia (Kalinka) = 7

    Love the American theme, a bit funny in the ancient era, yet still beautiful and so fitting for the country regardless.
    Getting harder to down vote anyone, so I'll start to share them around I think, starting with Japan.

    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) = 11 (10+1) This is a classic.
    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 12 (15-3) Much preferred Harun's theme to this. Something about the ancient version of this piece grates on my nerves.

    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 12
    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 19 (22 - 3) -- It's not horrible, but it's not great. How it currently outranks Poland, Persia, and America is beyond me.
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) = 8
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 13

    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 12
    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 19
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) = 8 + 1 = 9 (Still the best Atomic theme in the list, and its earlier versions of the song are mysterious, atmospheric and use instruments which immediately evoke Japan).
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 13
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 18
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 21
    Russia (Kalinka) = 7
    Sumeria (Hurrian Hymn 6 with original composition) = 1 - 3 = GONE. Not memorable enough. Unfortunately it suffers from being inspired by themes that used very basic instruments.

    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) = 12-3=9 - Is worst. And I'm currently playing domination with Germany. I don't want to hear American Atomic (Astronaut) theme every five minutes. Better than American themes in Civ V, but it should really go now.
    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 12+1=13 - Is one of best. Majestic and fitting for Arabia.
    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 19
