Arcade Fire - Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) vs. The Dream Academy - Life in a Northern Town
...kinda a no-brainer. To put it succinctly, the "ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh"s towards the end of Tunnels beat out the "hey-ah-mah-mah-mah"s throughout Northern Town.

Richard and Linda Thompson - I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight vs. Nina Simone - Sinnerman
The tougher of the two matches, because "Bright Lights" really is a sweet little tune. I ended up going with what I perceive as the more unique song.

I think we know what the final two will be, which are the same two we originally predicted. Self-fulfilling prophecy perhaps.

Sinnerman has grown on me a lot recently, but I still think it's longer than it needs to be.

Cool that I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight came this far. It isn't really the type of song that you'd expect here, but as a longtime favorite I'm happy it is here. This is end of the line, though.

Look's like Neil and I are the only ones going full underdog. I've been backing these two pretty strong the whole game, so the choice was easy.
