Round 6

1. Lefty Frizzell - Saginaw Michigan
(Bona fide. I feel bad that I consistently rank gbg's noms near the bottom, so I'm happy to finally get a chance to put one of her songs at the top. Fun fact: I used to have a dog named Lefty.)

Don't feel bad. I always expect my noms to come in last. I'm just happy when somebody likes them enough that they rate them somewhere in the middle.



1. Lefty Frizzell - Saginaw Michigan
- When I saw that this was nominated, I already knew what my #1 pick was going to be. This is as easy of a choice as I've ever had to make. Left Frizzell has a classic voice, performed classic country music, and on the country music Mt. Rushmore, I think it would be a mistake not to put his head right next Hank, Sr.

2. Karl Blau - That's How I Got to Memphis
- I initially heard this song because I was looking for more covers of this particular song. It was written and performed by Tom T. Hall and then Bobby Bare, but I heard it first when I heard Whitey Morgan's version. This is very different take on this classic country song, but it has grown on me. Karl Blau is an odd individual in the underground country sphere, but I'm glad he's here.

3. Midland - Cheatin' Songs
- @Captain Spaulding as funny as your Hangman/Midland comparison is to me, I like Midland a lot more than I do Hangman. If mainstream country wants to go full Midland you will get absolutely zero complaint from me. Authenticity is a big deal in the world of country music, but if music is good then music is good. I know everything matters, but sometimes being good is good enough. I don't love all their songs, but I would love it if mainstream country always sounded like Midland. I particularly enjoy "Fourteen Gears". They are smooth, but don't feel out of place in a smoky playlist.

4. Powerwolf - Army of the Night
- The video is goofy as hell, but the song is a blast.

5. Christopher Lee - Massacre of the Saxons
- Go on then, Christopher Lee.

6. Ennio Morricone - Un Altro Mare (featuring Edda Dell'Orso)
- Kinda Sexy. R.I.P. to the GOAT.

7. Ocean Colour Scene - The Riverboat Song
- This is fine; I just have a hard time coming up with enough to say about this after listening to some my top voted songs. I dig the little funky breakdown at the end though.

8. Foster The People - Pumped Up Kicks
- This is an interesting song just based solely on the subject matter and the way it's delivered. I can't decide if I want to like it more than I already do or dislike it more than I already do. This song deserves credit for approaching this subject matter and not shying away from it, not blaming guns, and being deeper than the music might make you think it is.

9. Scorpions - Still Loving You
- I'm kinda into this song, which isn't a given with Scorpions songs. Maybe not a full six-and-a-half minutes into type of thing though.

10. HVěSCH - Our Sole Refuge
- I dig the creepy industrial sound. Fine song.

11. Swirlies - Two Girls Kissing
- Six minutes feels like a long time if you aren't too into a song. This song doesn't really sound that bad, but I don't want to listen to it for that long.

12. INXS - The One Thing
- I don't like INXS.

A system of cells interlinked
1 HVěSCH - Our Sole Refuge - This surpassed my nominee to take first on my ballot.

2 INXS - The One Thing - Another 80s gem.

3 Ennio Morricone - Un Altro Mare (featuring Edda Dell'Orso) - Wonderful stuff...

4 Christopher Lee - Massacre of the Saxons - I had no idea. Dude is legendary!

5 Ocean Colour Scene - The Riverboat Song - Good tune!

6 Scorpions - Still Loving You - Probably wouldn't place this highly in another round, but the beck half of this ballot was pretty rough for me.

7 Lefty Frizzell - Saginaw Michigan - Good, not great.

8 Swirlies - Two Girls Kissing - This represents the last tune in this round I was able to get all the way thorough.

9 Foster The People - Pumped Up Kicks - I never liked these guys. Still don't.

10 Powerwolf - Army of the Night - Metal is normally a shoe-in for me. This is too symphonic and over-the-top for my taste.

11 Karl Blau - That's How I Got to Memphis - Nope

12 Midland - Cheatin' Songs - Nope x 2
