    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) =12
    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 18
    China (Jasmine Flower) = 12
    Egypt (El Helwa Di) = 7

    France (Tourdion: Quand je bois du vin clairet) = 5 (8-3)
    In an effort to spread out my down-votes somewhat evenly among songs that I don't think should have made it this far, France gets penalized for just not being interesting enough. Poland's theme is more fun and varied. France's music sounds nice for that jousting aesthetic in the middle ages, but falls flat in other eras. I would have strongly preferred Louis XIV's theme from Civ 4.

    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 21
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) = 20

    Macedon (Tino Mori) = 15 (14+1)
    I was lukewarm on this theme at first, but listening a real version of this theme really made me appreciate it. Love this style of music enough to take a break from my typical China-America-Sumeria upvote train.

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) = 18
    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 22
    Russia (Kalinka) = 9
    Scythia (original composition) = 5
    Sumeria (Hurrian Hymn 6 with original composition) = 15

    Egypt (El Helwa Di) = 7-3=4 Ancient version doesn't really have enough of that Ancient Egyptian feel.

    Russia's atomic theme sounds great with that choir.
    Sumeria sounds repetitive to me

    Down voting China for similar reasons to before.
    Love that Russian choir :)

    France (Tourdion: Quand je bois du vin clairet) = 2 (5-3) Still bland and not deserving of a high spot IMO.

    Probably the weakest one still here, in my opinion. Boring and unmemorable.

    A powerful theme, should be right up near the top.

    France is eliminated, since the theme is boring and repetitive at any era (least so at the Medieval Era). Voted Russia again, just because of the Atomic Era choir.

    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) = 10 + 1 = 11 (The Atomic theme gives me chills every time I listen to it. It's more inspiring, *moving* and happy than Greece's Atomic theme in my opinion (Greece's Atomic theme unfortunately tends to have little variation and too much repetition). America's earlier themes have smooth folksiness to them, and an underlying emotional quality, mixed in with the trumpeting grandeur we are used to hearing (usually too often in the case of some themes, like Greece's). It's an enticing mix, and distinctly American. Best American theme in Civilization thus far IMO).
    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 15
    China (Jasmine Flower) = 9
    Egypt (El Helwa Di) = 4 - 3 = 1 (Simply too much cacophony. The instruments are authentic, but I think of the ones remaining Egypt's themes are the weakest).
    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 22

    Kalinka is my own personal Scarborough Fair, my Stalingrad, no matter the odds and no matter how bleak the outlook I will take not one step back, I will fight to the death for the glory of the Motherland!

    As for Scythia... still kind of boring and still generic with no real soul behind it. No changes there.

    China isn't going down before Scythia on my watch. I would upvote America instead, but I like this just as much. Interesting that this poll isn't nearly as unanimous as the leader depiction one. No one's getting close to 30 here.

    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) = 22
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) = 17

    Scythia (original composition) = 2 (5-3)
    The only song left that I don't like. I held back on voting against Scythia last round because I wanted the pleasure of eliminating it today. Shame.

    Jeez... I stop checking this thread for a few days and France gets eliminated? You people are dead to me. Dead!

    ...but while I'm still here...

    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) =8
    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 16
    China (Jasmine Flower) = 10 + 1 = 11 I particularly love the way this one evolves through the eras. Works better than many of the others.

    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 22

    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) = 9 (8 + 1) -- I'm surprised to see this doing so poorly; it's a catchy and pleasant rendition of one of my favorite folk songs.
    Arabia (Üsküdara) = 16
    China (Jasmine Flower) = 8 (11 - 3) -- I dread finding China in the game because this theme is so annoying, and I love Chinese music. :(

    Poland (Hej ide w las) = 22
    Russia (Kalinka) = 5 (8-3) I am not so partial to this one. I would have much preferred Korobeiniki, which is an infinitely recognizable tune, for one reason in particular. ;)

    Do astronauts give you nightmares or something?? :dubious:

    America (Hard Times Come Again No More) = 11 (10+1)

    I'd vote for Russia, but I remember how unexpectedly fast Cleo went down in the leader elimination thread; and amazingly America's wonderful tune is in that territory...
    China...it deserves to go before Russia and Scythia! Surely... :wow:
