    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 20
    Norway (Gjendine's Lullaby) = 10 - 3 = 7 (Too dark and gloomy, nothing of the adventuresome or epic Viking spirit is here. It might as well be a funeral dirge for Norway in-game (seeing as they are underpowered))

    This thread made me realized that I should had music turned off or something because I can't remember a SINGLE theme music from any civ :o
    I'm obviously not going to vote, but I'm now genuinely curious and will try to fix it :)
    Good job guys and keep it up!

    I think Rome is decent, not as bad as suggested at least. Brazil I find boring.

    Amazed Norway made it this far. Hoping to see it go down soon.

    Poland's theme is able to balance levity with epicness very well, sound both like a folk song and something that could be played at the imperial court rather than just one or the other which really helps give it some nice character despite the simple structure. Not as good as their outstanding Civ 5 theme but very close.

    I don't know why France isn't getting some love. Their Ancient and Medieval themes are amazing, though I'll admit that later eras aren't as good.

    Rome isn't as rousing as it ought to be. I think Rome's depiction this time around is spot on, but he music is lackluster.

    How did China get this low? Their theme is amazing and adds great variety to the soundtrack. Industrial era in particular.

    Egypt (El Helwa Di) = 13

    Banaha sounds childish and gets old rather fast. Faster than Waltzing Matilda imo, but it's already gone. Would downvote Scythia again, but it's against my personal policy to downvote the same civ twice in a row.

    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 17
    Norway (Gjendine's Lullaby) = 2
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 23
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 24

    Because somehow I feel disconnected with Harald while listening to this.
    Japan's theme is solid, especially the Atomic Era.

    *sigh* Two of my top three favorites — Germany and Norway — are already gone. Oh well...

    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) = 17
    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 18

    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) 26 - 3 = 23
    This one is pretty good, but it's not the best. There are others that are better.
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) = 18
    Kongo (Banaha) = 1
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 17
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 23
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 25
    Russia (Kalinka) = 12
    Scythia (original composition) 7 + 1 = 8
    So beautiful and haunting. The more I hear this theme, the better I like it.

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 23
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 22 (25-3) It's not outright bad, but it isn't a particularly interesting theme and shouldn't be among the top contenders I think.
    Russia (Kalinka) = 12
    Scythia (original composition) = 9 (8+1) It's better than Egypt's theme, c'mon people. Egypt's might be culturally appropriate and everything, but it's more nice background decoration kinda music (which serves it's purpose in the game perfectly fine). Scythia's theme though is one that I pay attention to and even want to listen to when not playing.

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 23+1=24 - Scythia can survive one more day without my help, as it will take four downvotes to eliminate it. I'll give my upvote to Persia. This theme deserves to be leading, because it's one of the best. I'm sure it will make it in top 5.

    China (Jasmine Flower) = 11
    Egypt (El Helwa Di) = 13
    France (Tourdion: Quand je bois du vin clairet) = 18
    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 20
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) = 19 + 1 = 20 (Best Atomic Era theme, in fact best any era theme really, though Macedon, Rome, Arabia and a handful of others come close).
    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 17
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 24
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 22
    Russia (Kalinka) = 12
    Scythia (original composition) = 10
    Sumeria (Hurrian Hymn 6 with original composition) = 16 - 3 = 13 (Rather bland. It lacks a great underlying melody, unlike Scythia, which was also an original composition, but Scythia's theme possesses a lot more drama and Game-of-Thrones ish flavor so it's more distinctive)
