    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) - 11-3=8 It's not bad at all but I like the others left on the list better.
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 12+1=13 Well the Cree and Scotland are gone now.:cry: Might as well keep the next best one alive from this point on.
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 10

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 10
    Russia (Kalinka) - 7 (6+1) The best of the vanilla themes, with great evolution from humble origins to Soviet superpower.
    Zulu (Uthe Ubhuti Asizomlanda, Bayisa, Halala, Shaka Mamba) - 1 (4-3) Fantastic melody, but sounds too peaceful for Shaka.

    Russia (Kalinka) - 8 (7+1) I'm just going to repeat my last vote. This, I think, deserves to be in the top five.
    Zulu (Uthe Ubhuti Asizomlanda, Bayisa, Halala, Shaka Mamba) - 0 (2-3) ELIMINATED This does not.

    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) - 2 (5-3) Just can't get over how much better Japan's theme was in Civ V to Civ VI. Rokudan No Shirabe all the way!
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 14 (13+1) Finally some epic Mongolian throat singing!

    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 11 + 1 = 12 The Mongolia themes in general are my favorite in the game besides Scotland, and Scotland's already out.
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 8
    Russia (Kalinka) - 8 - 3 = 5 I hate this theme so goddamn much. It's so repetitive and annoying.

    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 13 (16-3... I have no idea why this is in the lead, and so many great ones are gone. Doesn’t the gambols annoy you all after awhile?)
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 13( 12+1... Only good theme of the bunch left, and well deserving of the top spot.)

    Holy cow, I'm gone for 2 days and it's already down to 4? And Zulu is out? Why even live!?

    Seriously though.

    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 13
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 13
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 8 - 3 = 5 -- The fact that this got to the top 4 is stunning. None of the music in Civ is what I'd call bad, but I wouldn't have thought that folks would dig this given reactions to several of the other songs. Either way, of the four left, this is my least favorite.
    Russia (Kalinka) - 5 + 1 = 6 -- Taken holistically, the Russian music is one of the highest quality arrangements across all eras. I like Mongolia better, but if these are the four we have then Russia should be in the top three.

    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 10 (13-3) Although beautiful, not as breathtaking as Mongolia’s theme. And Gitarja already won leader depiction.
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 14 (13+1) It deserves to win. Fantastic melody that improves every era and perfectly represents its native country.

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 5 Love! Hope this makes it to Top 3!
    Russia (Kalinka) - 6 My favorite vanilla theme, and better than Indonesia, but not better than the others, however.

    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 10-3=7 - it's great and inspiring, but something has to go, and I guess this is grand, but compared to the other three, it can get too grand for my taste. Also, I can't really tell the difference between industrial and atomic version.
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 14
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 5
    Russia (Kalinka) - 6+1=7 - Evolves well, and goes from groups of Slavs who founded the first villagest and cities through a pub and picture of medieval Russia, through Tsarist Russia during Peter the Great/Catherine the Great, to Soviet Union/Present day Russia. The vocals in the atomic version make it even better. And as I mentioned few times already, I also like darker themes.

    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 2 = (5 - 3) - A nice piece, but loses points for copying Civ V's homework, and not a huge deal of evolution from the strong early eras.
    Russia (Kalinka) - 8 = (7 + 1) - As others have said, this is the piece that evolves the best throughout all the eras (many themes are good at this, but too often the Atomic versions sound too similar. Not the case with Kalinka). My second favourite of the remaining themes.

    I'm voting early today because I won't be available at my usual time until quite late this evening. I should be back on schedule if it's still going tomorrow...

    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 4 (7 - 3) -- How did such a middling piece make it to the top 4?
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 14
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - 3 (2 + 1) -- Easily the best of the remaining themes.
    Russia (Kalinka) - 8

    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 4
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 15 (14+1) Though I love Gerogia's theme, this one is as deserving to win. Go forth and conquer the music my Mongolian horde.
    Persia (Kereshme + Reng-e Shalakhu) - ELIMINATED (3-3) This surviving over Georgia is irritating to me.
    Russia (Kalinka) - 8

    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 4 + 1 = 5 (A wondrous star-and-sea evoking theme that somehow made TWO pseudo-religious themes it is based on harmonious and beautiful to listen to (and also not overly slow). This theme has attracted much positive attention on YouTube and elsewhere, and deserves second place. Also, the gamelans remain in each era but change pitch at times subtly and at times in a more epic manner. The theme evolves using consistency with change, and suits Indonesia very well.)
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 15
    Russia (Kalinka) - 8 - 3 = 5 (Ploddering and dull music about a snowberry/raspberry (ONE song) ill-suited for Russian power, let alone Peter of all rulers, and evokes headaches until the choir appears in Atomic (at which point the theme becomes overwhelmingly dark in places). Also this is one of the most repetitive tracks in the entire game (similar to Kongo and Australia in that sense) that should never have made it to top three. I don't see any of the historical connotations cited about Russian history in the earlier era themes at all, particularly due to inconsistent use of vocals. Furthermore, it's all too easy to make a theme based on a single song. Indonesia has its theme based on two songs melded together and demonstrates more creativity and chutzpah.)

    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 6 (5 + 1) I like it, not sure I'd put it in the top three, but it definitely is better than Russia's.
    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 15
    Russia (Kalinka) - 2 (5 -3) I don't understand how this one made the top three.

    Mongolia (Pastoral Song; Urtin Duu) - 12 (15-3) — It's grand but my least favourite of the three.
    Russia (Kalinka) - 3 (2+1) — Love the instrumentation and the sheer degree of change from one era to the next.
