    I've been meaning to vote for Spain for a while, now. I love starting games with Spain just to hear this.

    So sorry, my Incan friends. I can't find heart to downvote anybody else!

    Mongolia: At first, the peace theme appears to be a rip-off of the war theme. As the theme goes on, however, it takes on a life of its own and sounds really incredible.

    Austria: Sorry Austria, can't think of anyone else to downvote.

    Austria lands 27th!

    Yup, it seems right to downvote Polynesia right now. Nice theme, appropriate, but not that catchy.

    Sweden's theme is surprisingly low. This is the catchiest Peace theme, probably, and hits all the right notes.

    Polynesia: I live in Hawaii, and you literally only hear this sort of music in airports. It's tacky and touristy - loads of fun for a tropical island-getaway setting, but hardly fitting for the overall theme of Polynesia.

    Portugal: I like Sweden's peace theme almost as much as Portugal's, but Portugal needs the vote more badly. I have explained my love of Portugal's wistful flamenco guitar many times.

    It's not that the ethiopian theme is bad, but it's way too high right now. It's average, and definitely doesn't belong anywhere near the top 10.

    I think i'm the only one who loves Korea's theme so much (in fact it would be in my top 10), but surely it can't go before the Inca ? Those first few notes are so perfect, and they're the most important ones since you get them every time you talk to Sejong.

    My votes this time are more for balancing powers. I enjoy the motifs of Portugal's theme and find it quite fitting for a naval civ. Greece's theme is....okay, but not that memorable for it to still stay in the middle of the pack.

    Might as well finish Polynesia off. Not only is it cheesy, but I don't even find it pleasant to listen to.

    As for England, it's based on one of my favorite classical pieces of all time, and it's a great arrangement too.

    Well... I'm guessing that the Incan theme is next to go.

    Stay with me, Portugal. You can do it!

    Portugal: While there are other peace themes that I like as well, they're all above 20. Portugal needs the vote far more than, say, Sweden or China.

    Inca: It's not until around the three minute mark that this peace theme actually starts to get interesting and pleasant to listen to. Before that, it's honestly quite dull. Being that the song is only about five minutes in total, this this leaves only two minutes of awesomeness. Had the song begun at the aforementioned interesting point, my opinion of it would be far higher.

    Still trying to save Korea... a peaceful and endearing theme.

    Maya : It's fine, but dissonant in a few places and overall a little boring. Which isn't that bad for a peace theme but we're almost at the halfway point now, "fine" isn't enough.

    Portugal: It would have been the Inca, but a Portugal that is slowly reaching 20 is bad. Mainly for me.
