    Saving Greece, since I actually like it. The part that starts at 1:39 is very good, IMO.

    Downvoting Persia because it doesn't really sound like a war theme; it's too mournful-sounding. Good for symbolizing the ravages of war I guess, but not for getting you into the mood for conquest.

    Zulu: Wow, this theme fell FAST. As much as I'd like to spam upvotes for Polynesia, this is too good to be sitting at 13. Nothing sends a chill down your spine quite like hearing the the first "Ooh Shaka" as 10 Impis flood through your borders.

    Persia: Sorry Persia, but I cannot in good faith downvote even the dullest war theme while you're on the board. This should've just been a random "sad," "end/post-war" track in the Middle Eastern set, like after you drop a nuke or something.

    Zulu: Gonna follow the same path as Lanijon. With a good war theme from the Zulus, how is this below 20???

    Persia: Once again, same as Lanijon. This theme needs to get the boot next.

    I do feel like the Celtic theme should go before Persia's. I suppose it is a mild distinction, but I think that Persia's sad tune is more memorable and effective than Boudicca's generic war march (I could get behind it if it were a stock European War theme, though).

    I was of a mind of voting Spain next, but it feels kind of wrong to do it before Portugal :p Both themes are very good, but Portugal's is better.

    You know what, Iberian Husky? It's fine this time. Make sure next time that you wait a full 24 hours before voting again.

    Zulu: A worthy theme like this needs to be higher.

    Songhai: Quiet, boring, not intimidating. This has my priority of being eliminated.

    Noooo, not Persia. *pout*

    Well, off you go, Darius. 27th place is no bad place to greet everyone by calling them "Young Tablak!" and proceeding to rant about Venezuela when offering a deal.

    Sweden- As much as I'd like to spam up votes for Shoshone, they are already doing pretty well. But when I heard this theme, Sweden instantly became my favourite civ. Powerful, dark and regal. Love the strings, the flute and the trumpet in this one. I love this theme beginning to end and I hope it gets in the top 10 at least.

    So hard to down vote now since they are pretty much all good, but the Egyptian War theme is the most boring out of the bunch. First part is okay, then it's bland and uninteresting for the rest.

    Tsk, we're down to the last 25 songs, and the choice is difficult indeed...

    Arabia - 24
    Assyria - 22
    Babylon - 25
    Brazil - 27
    Byzantium - 21
    Carthage - 25
    Dutch - 27
    England - 24
    Ethiopia - 17+1=18
    France - 18
    Greece - 18
    Huns - 23
    Indonesia - 24
    Japan - 21-3=18
    Mongolia - 24
    Ottoman - 24
    Poland - 23
    Polynesia - 24
    Portugal - 23
    Russia - 24
    Shoshone - 26
    Songhai - 11
    Spain - 22
    Sweden - 23
    Zulu - 20

    ...well, almost. I did say before I'm not a big fan of Japan's war theme (it's fairly forgettable, I find, and one can barely notice it in-game). It's easy to downvote it, as I feel it is the weakest of the remaining ones, though I do understand there are plenty who like it (so I won't be hounding it or anything)

    I like Ethiopia's War theme, so I'll give it a nudge.
