Best Song Survivor: Original Soundtracks 1, Round Five

Somewhat predictably, Always Forever Now was eliminated in the last round, bringing us to Slug, Miss Sarajevo, and Your Blue Room battling for two slots in quarterfinals. The songs not eliminated in this round shall advance. You have 24 hours to vote for your least favorite song, the next song to be eliminated from this contest. For anyone just joining us, rules may be found here.

Slug.

I like it, but it is a little to mundane for my liking. I don't know why Interference treats it as if it was some kind of musical revelation.

Slug. It's a cool track but it's gotta go. I don't think the other two will last very long in the next round they're judged.

I would love it if Slug and YBR advanced. Over half of Passengers is better than Miss Sarajevo.

This is the Slug vs. Miss Sarajevo death-match. Your Blue Room should be safe, but I really have no idea whether YBR or Slug will win.

I don't know which to vote for myself. I really love both songs.

Interference sucks at Passengers.

Quick comparison with the last couple of times I ran the tournament in 2009 (can't find older figures). I ran Passengers as a single vote-for-favourites round both times. The first time was as part of a regular Survivor with other albums featuring the song-by-song elimination style of this tournament, and Passengers got three finalists in that edition. The second time was as part of an alternate Survivor where all albums were run as a single vote-for-favourites round with all non-album songs from the era also included. Passengers' results were very consistent.

First time, with a total of 81 voters:
62 votes: Your Blue Room
49: Miss Sarajevo
44: Slug
33: Always Forever Now
29: Beach Sequence
(Slug, Miss Sarajevo, and YBR were then the first three eliminated from the nineties final, and in that order too - though YBR's elimination was in a tie with LNOE.)

Second time, with 67 voters:
1. Your Blue Room - 60 votes
2. Miss Sarajevo - 49
3. Slug - 34
4. Always Forever Now - 26
5. Beach Sequence - 21
(Slug, AFN, and Beach Sequence all received the lowest amount of votes in the nineties vote-for-favourites final. Miss Sarajevo placed a few songs above them, while Your Blue Room did pretty well, coming within four votes of proceeding to the grand final.)

But it's been almost four years since those results, so has Slug grown in popularity? I for one hope so.

The trend of the total numbers (81 to 67 to 40/50-something) troubles me.

The Hive is making this one interesting so far.

I've never thought that highly of Slug, to be honest.

Keep in mind those tournaments from 2009 were run at the same time as NLOTH was released - i.e. the most active EYKIW has been in the last five years.
