    Brazil (Brejeiro) = 12
    China (Jasmine Flower) = 15
    Egypt (El Helwa Di) = 17
    England (Scarborough Fair) = 5 (8 - 3) This one's gotta go. Probably the worst on the list for me. The melody doesn't seem suited to representing a major, world-spanning Civilization as England, or epic enough for a journey through human history. More like a cheesy, overly-nostalgic Susan Boyle kinda melody to me.

    Rome (Magna Mater) = 14
    Russia (Kalinka) = 14
    Scythia (?) = 14 (13 + 1) Hope this one isn't one of the first to go, it deserves better! Just a great, atmospheric track. As someone said before, it sounds tragic, in a very good, epic kinda way.

    Germany (Ich hab die Nacht geträumet) = 13 - 3 = 10 Dreary and dull - a far cry from the epicness of their Civ V war theme, which makes me sad.

    Spain (Recuerdos de la Alhambra) = 10-3=7 - I don't like the fact that it sounds like a music from happy end of some soap opera or romantic movie. It deserves to go.

    I'm going to help out England, since I prefer themes based around a clear, distinct melody rather than orchestral noise.

    I'm attacking Spain here, since its the only theme I actually dislike that is close to being eliminated right now. Just kinda bland.

    I'd downvote India or Germany but people are complaining about repeated downvotes so I guess by default Norway is taking a hit. It's very slow and melancholy for a Viking theme, which should be bombastic and hearty.

    Since we haven't disallowed multiple upvotes (yet) I'm throwing my hat in on Kalinka again. Such a beautiful song with so much variation between the versions, it really feels like a trip through Russia's history rather than just a catchy tune. The most thematically powerful of all the songs in my mind.

    You guys are downvoting all the compositions that are actually decent (except Australia's theme, which is too repetitive even within each iteration, imo). Spain's theme is excellent, as is England's. How the Aztec theme survived when it lacks anything distinguishably rhythmic is beyond me.

    Russia (Kalinka) = 15
    Scythia (original composition) = 15
    Spain (Recuerdos de la Alhambra) = 4 + 1 = 5 I doubt I can save this theme, but it's far more distinctive than many other themes, including Aztecs/Sumeria/Persia/Australia.

    Indeed standard elimination poll policy is that you can indeed vote the same way any number of times in a row (provided 24 hours has elapsed between each vote.) Please give a reason each time, if it's something like "for the same reason as before".
    I have added this rules clarification to the top post.

    Australia's theme is so fun to sing along, while for India, it's inevitable that it would be eliminated, so I eliminated it.

    @MantaRevan Please update the first post, as India's theme is finished.

    Ok, I'll give Russia a break this time. Scythia's theme does sound a bit depressing.

    The Aztec theme is neither very fitting, nor is it pleasant to hear, nor is it interesting. Arabia's theme has all three.

    I really can't stand this one. India's theme is not great either, but it didn't deserve to go first. This one should have.

    Along with Scythia and Poland, one of my three favorites. Beautiful and haunting.

    England (Scarborough Fair) = 6-3 = 3 Same reason as before. India's industrial theme was much better than any version of this and didn't deserve last. One of the only tracks I actively dislike.
