Your host has now voted (that was tough!) and it's time for a forecast update 10 ballots in:
  • 12s raining all over the place: so far each one has gone to a different entry.
  • The song in first place is leading by a significant margin.
  • One FL song currently in the top 5 but another one's starting to catch up as well.
  • Just one entry languishing on 0°C.
Still 23 sets of scores to go, so of course everything can and will change!

OMG I was going to post that, but then got side-tracked by their other rain classic, The Rain.

Anyway, I am remembering, but just being terrible and busy, so probably this time tomorrow I'll be sending them in.

The way this was totally true because, at the time of tagging, each entry received an exclusive third listen from me.

Still can't decide on which song out of these 11 to kick out of my top 10 but I'll aim to vote tonight.
 
I was nearing the end of my listening then realised that for once I've used Spotify instead of youtube so I've missed a couple of songs. I will have to get my votes in on the final day close to the wire I'm afraid!

Nadieh was a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter, whose debut album Land of Tá was released late 1986.



Several more albums followed, of which Company of Fools from 1988 was successful, too - winning several awards.



Her third album, No Way Back, was released in 1989, and was produced by American producer Larry Lee, who also produced the soundtrack album for the movie Dutch Treat, by the Dolly Dots.



Subsequent albums had a more folk-feel. In 1996 Nadieh sadly lost the battle with breastcancer. She was only 37 years old.
 
Managed to vote last night and it was such a struggle. My top 3 is incredible and the entire top 10 is one of the strongest in quite a while. Interestingly, I didn't give that many HMs this time - seems like the highs were very high and there were a bunch of songs I didn't really care for. I voted for three of the FL entries, as per usual a good showing there.

Entries I guessed correctly:
@berserkboi Alain Souchon - La ballade de Jim
@Phonetics Girl Anna Jurksztowicz - Stan pogody
@Dynamo Richard Jacques feat. TJ Davis - Can You Feel the Sunshine?
@TéléDex Rebecca - フレンズ (Friends)
@Disco Blister Daliah Lavi - Tell Him That It's Snowing
@soratami Piper - Summer Breeze
@Up N Down Baby Fox - Rain
That's a good amount of correct guesses. @Filler was between Storm and Philip Glass, while I expected @Tiger Suit to have sent either David Sylvian or Tricky.

Can't really predict the winner. Maybe @KamikazeHeart if we're getting a FL one? Not sure.

When can we expect the reveals?

So, which song did you think was mine?
