    India (Vaishnav Jana to tene) - 15
    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 20 (19+1) A masterpiece of music, the later themes are a perfect blend of both traditional instruments and grand orchestra. This theme just sounds like paradise, something I wanna hear ascending to heaven or something like that.
    Japan (Itsuki Lullaby) - 23
    Kongo (Banaha) - 14 (17-3) How did this one beat out America, Cree, and the Maori? It's too positive, to the point where its grating and after 2 times of playing I just mute and play a better civ's theme on my phone.

    Reminds me of a certain user in the past Music Theme Eliminated Thread, who justified his downvoting of American music because somehow a current political figure affects the quality of the music (???). I don't approve of the current Turkish government and its policies, but there is no denying that the Ottoman theme is incredible.

    Its a shame that I've joined as late as I have, I would've liked to have Hard Times Come Again No More a bit or a lot longer.

    Kongo (Banaha) - 5 (8 - 3) I personally don't mind this theme and I enjoy it every once in a while. I don't see any of the themes on here as bad but it is my least favorite on here. It is catchy but perhaps a bit on the repetitive side. I am curious now about what other themes could've been used for the Kongo? Its among my favorite new additions to the civ series.
    Mali (Mali Sadjo; Masana Seesay) - 26 (25 + 1) Definitely one of my favorites on here. I'm particularly happy with how the kora manages to stay in the theme all the way through to the Atomic theme (as much I love the grand orchestras, I feel that some of the industrial and atomic themes like the Inca shouldn't be abandoning the traditional instruments entirely).

    Egypt (El Helwa Di) - 5 (8-3) Its pretty unmemorable, and not very emotive. It doesn't make me feel like I am suddenly transported back to ancient Egypt!

    Touching on the issue that elimination threads have, where polarizing entries often struggle (as 3 detractors has the same impact as 9 proponents). It would be interesting to see an elimination thread where positive and negative votes were both worth 2 points, but where all entries lost 1-2 points every 24 hours. It would mean entries that were a little bit polarizing might last longer compared to ones which no one cared much about one way or another.

    This one does feel a little more heated than other elimination threads. I suspect that since this is mostly a thread on personal taste, there's less objective arguments people can deploy and more likelihood of taking things personally?

    China (Jasmine Flower) - 22
    Egypt (El Helwa Di) - 5
    France (Tourdion: Quand je bois du vin clairet) - 14
    Georgia (Shen Khar Venakhi; Tsaiqvanes Tamar Kali) - 14 (13+1) I'd rate this as the song I didn't expect would work but which strangely does....
    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) - 19
    Hungary (Hej Dunáról fúj a szél; Cinege, Cinege) - 18
    India (Vaishnav Jana to tene) - 15
    Indonesia (Rejang Dewa; Bapang Selisir) - 18 (21-3) I don't find this one as grating as Khmer but this expansion was not a musical high point for me.

    France (Tourdion: Quand je bois du vin clairet) - 14
    Georgia (Shen Khar Venakhi; Tsaiqvanes Tamar Kali) - 14+1=15 - The ancient theme feels like a mountainous realm, the medieval theme builds on this and the industrial theme evolves into something awe-inspiring, I almost want to say heavenly. The whole set would be perfect if not for the very unfortunate choice of sound effects for the first third of the atomic theme that ruin any impression of holiness, and it takes some time for it to be built again. Anyway, the beautiful vocals this theme is built on make it rather unique and memorable, and I mean it in a good way.

    Kongo (Banaha) - 5-3=2 - Banaha has one problem - for the nice and cheerful song it is, it is just hard for it not to become repetitive after few plays, especially combined with the overly energetic and happy performance of the themes.

    Poland (Hej ide w las) - 19
    Rome (Magna Mater) - 4 (7-3) Time to go for this boring theme that doesn't nearly approach the majesty of the civ it represents.

    Kongo (Banaha) - 0 (3-2) ELIMINATED - Another theme I never enjoyed hearing in the game very much. Too light and cheerful and a little... annoying I think.

    Rome (Magna Mater) - 2 (5-3) The most disappointing theme on the list. Its a little grand, but this is the Romans were talking about here, they could've used something more epic.

    Greece (Epitaph of Seikilos) - 16 (19-3) I'm really only downvoting this because I feel bad downvoting Hungary again straight away. My only reason is I think it's a bit lazy as they used the same piece of music for Greece in Civ V.

    Rome (Magna Mater) - 3 (2+1) It will be eliminated soon but I have to stick up for this one last time. I really like it, I think it suits the Civ perfectly, is great background music, and you're all wrong :p

    Egypt (El Helwa Di) - 3 (6-3) Not at all memorable, and should definitely have been eliminated earlier. I think America and Rome should have outlasted this distinctly forgettable tune. The original tune it's based on is better.

    India (Vaishnav Jana to tene) - 12 + 1 = 13 (Far more harmonious, peaceful, thematically well implemented--most songs in Civ VI aren't tied to the leader at all, but this one is as Gandhi's favorite hymn. The instrumentation is excellent and is immediately recognizable as Indian. This kind of iconic music is what suits Civ's series best.)
