  Air - Moon Safari (1998) is also eligible for this genre vote. If you want to change one of your votes to add Moon Safari (1998), feel free to do so.

Since I missed this on my list for this genre, I can include it in the April Album Project vote as well.

Wasn't Moon Safari by Air supposed to be in this round beings it lost the tie-breaker in the General Vote? I remember Darren initially listing it in the list of nominations for this Genre Vote. Or was it decided that it didn't fit in the genre? I kind of don't think it should honestly (similar to my feelings on Orbital), but I was gonna vote for it regardless. But if it's not part of this Genre Vote, let's make sure not to forget then that it should automatically be nominated for next month's regular vote.

Woob 1194 was the one this round that I hadn't heard before and ended up really liking. It almost made my ballot if not for space problems, but thanks to Steve Z for turning me on to it. Same for both of BSLO's nominees in round 1.

Last cut was Never Be Anyone Else But You. I was really hoping that Stood Up would've gotten in with the genre vote. Ricky Nelson is an artist that we've really missed the boat with. My Bucket's Got a Hole in It would've been another fine choice had it been nominated. Ah well, this artist vote is a start!

  Just listening to all of the Ricky Nelson nominations and was doing something thinking about next months genre vote and came across a list of inductees/nominees for the history of the RnR HoF that could come in handy to anyone wanting to think about their nominees.

Here is a link to that list, it looks pretty complete from my perspective. (I hope the link works and is allowed.)

Another Ricky Nelson note:

Besides Rick Nelson and The Stone Canyon Band - Garden Party (1972)

It should also be Ricky Nelson - Teen Age Idol (1962)

Last Cuts include Big Maybelle, Buddy Holly's It Doesn't Matter Anymore, Fats Domino's Be My Guest, Gene Vincent, Link Wray, Little Richard, Little Willie John, and Ricky Nelson. It was really tough to narrow it down to 15. I would eventually vote for all of these nominated songs.
