GNFPWLBN song elimination: Round 7

Postby Gregg » Thu Jun 25, 2015 2:45 am

"Bury Me with It" survives to get added back into the voting pool. I like both songs, but would have preferred "Tetons" to advance further. "Bury Me" is one of those post M&A manic songs, that I like, but "Tetons" is just really personal to me, and has some great lyrics, even though I still don't know really what Isaac meant by "Tetons". I think I've heard they're a mountain range...

The rules:

1. You are voting for the song you like / listen to the least on the album.
2. You have 48 hours to cast your vote for a song. You can change you vote at any point during those 48 hours.
3. In the event of a tie, there will be a special tie breaker round between those songs over 24 hours. In the event that the tie breaker round ends in a tie, we will just end the round as such.
4. In the final round you are voting for the song you like / listen to the most on the album.


8. Blame It on the Tetons
9. Float On
10. Black Cadillacs
11. This Devil's Workday
12. Dance Hall
13. One Chance

My favorite theory on Blame it on the Tetons has always been that it's the French equivalent of "tits". For MM, much more likely they are applying it to the mountains, or ironically to the Teton branch of the Sioux tribe.

Tetons is another one of my favorite songs. Some of the best lyrics and a very different style and vibe all around. I wish they would do more like this.

Voted Good Times....
