The next vote by someone who didn't vote in this match-up decides!
Highlighting this would knock my nomination out but Walk to School amassed 8 votes to Sisters' 6 votes by my count. The source of the confusion might be the fact that Jackson changed his vote from Les Amazones to Philip Glass when editing his post (I hope he doesn't mind me pointing this out).

I recounted four times now and it's still a tie? Maybe we exist in parallel universes? :mrgreen:
Here's the voters:

Walk to School
- andyd1010
- jamieW
- Edre Peraza
- LunarPiper
- votingbloc
- Jackson
- acroamor

Sisters
- Schüttelbirne
- Honorio
- rumpdoll
- DaveC
- prosecutorgodot
- Rdwdbob
- mileswide

If the ties aren't broken by Saturday, I will eliminate my own vote, effectively breaking the ties (making "Walk to School" and "Ender" advance).

Or more plausibly, it's me being too stupid to count to 7 or 8 :D You're right, it is 7 each.

No worries, I didn't think anything ill of it, I just wrongly thought you were torn over which song to choose- that happened to me last week where Waltz had an edge over Dramascule on my first listen of the latter (I'd heard Waltz before) only for me to have the opposite opinion after another two streams of both tracks. Sorry for drawing attention to what looks like an honest mistake on your part!

Even though I voted for the two winners, I'm sorry it turned out this way. To be honest, Schüttelbirne, since you're the one running this poll, your votes should've been the deciders. (Though it was very generous of you to do the opposite.) :(
