For me, that whole division has been pretty much just okay. I love my own nomination which fell in the first round, and the only other one I really connected with also fell in the first round. I guess I'd rather hear a merely good Grimes song over merely good songs by any of the other artists featured.

8. Neil Young - Cowgirl in the Sand vs. 12. Arcade Fire - Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)

11. Arctic Monkeys - 505 vs. 14. Grimes - California

4. Frida Hyvonen - Dirty Dancing vs. 15. The Dream Academy - Life in a Northern Town
I know not everyone is focussed on lyrics, but am I the only one who is a little bothered by that Life in a Northern Town is a song about the cold north of England and about Nick Drake, but somehow bases it's hooks around African chants? I mean, African music is about the last thing that makes me think about life in a Northern town. It's not a bad song or anything, but it just gets me out of what they seem to be going for and it is a creative decision I just can't understand.

2. Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms vs. 13. Joan Jett - Bad Reputation

6. John Denver - Take Me Home, Country Roads vs. 5. Richard and Linda Thompson - I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight

7. Nancy Sinatra - Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) vs. 3. Michael Kiwanuka - Cold Little Heart

1. Nina Simone - Sinnerman vs. 16. ABBA - Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)
A rare match-up that satisfies me deeply.

10. Majical Cloudz - Childhood's End vs. 9. Sniff n the Tears - Driver's Seat
