This was the first time I didn't vote, but not out of a lack of interest. I did have less time, but wanted to listen to everything on Monday evening, but the poll was already closed.

By the way, Touch of Grey is on Spotify.


And breaking my own rule for having only one nomination at a time in the poll, but wanted to add something here by Lana Del Rey to go with the tribute I wrote about her, so I nominate:
Lana Del Rey - Ride

You're right, I don't know how I missed it the first time. My searches came out with tribute bands only...

Added it to the spotify playlist
