I also went with King Of Birds. Let's force a mercy rule.

KoB.

Next round Fireplace, and then things will get rough. It's a shame that only a few people vote here, the next rounds would be a lot cooler with a big number of votes. Glad this album gets four spots, even if it's not among my favorites, it has, at least, four tracks that deserve to proceed.

All I know is, I hope at least one of the big singles don't make the cut. Both very good songs, but I like the first four better than both of them.

But I'll jump on the KOB bandwagon. It's nice, but I like Fireplace more.

Ditto that. I can't deny that the two Big Singles are good songs, but they're far from my favorites.

King Of Birds or Fireplace. I don't care. Went with Fireplace in the hope this ends in a draw.

No, not KOB.....

Finest Worksong has always seemed a little too grandoise for my liking...lacks the homely quirk of the other songs...

Fireplace has to stay just for the brass.

You continue to astound with your seemingly endless streak of FAIL.

Maybe, but you're beginning to sound a wee bit like Dalton and that's not admirable.

I dunno, FS just sounds a bit dated and forced....

Finest Worksong deserves to be a finalist, if you ask me.

Absolutely. I think it's the best song on the album.

As cliche as it is to say this, The One I Love is my favourite, but Finest Worksong is second.

As far as I'm concerned, Finest Worksong could win the entire tournament and it wouldn't bother me. It's easily in my Top 5 R.E.M. songs.
