  It would appear that I counted jtrichey's vote for Dire Straits - So Far Away for Dire Straits - Down To The Waterline, so So Far Away is inducted and I'll remove So Far Away from the tiebreaker votes it is in to get the results.

About The Song Project, Jennifer wrote:
  I just wanted to say that I really appreciate the support for The Moody Blues' song Your Wildest Dreams. I have loved it since it first captured my attention and imagination when I was very young from the very first time I heard it (and eventually saw the video). The wistfulness and magic of both the music and the lyrics is what got me listening to both the rest of the Moody Blues albums and other progressive rock music as well.

P.S. Sorry I can't participate more in the song and album projects right now or at all for the last few months. I have been swamped with everything involved with buying and moving to a new home. Also, Thank You for the warm welcome back, joker. :)

The majority of the vote differences don't really matter in the final results, but if my count on "So Far Away" by Dire Straits is correct, then it's automatically inducted, and we have a 4/5 tie-breaker instead of 5/6 tiebreaker.

I calculated the following voters that voted for "So Far Away" by Dire Straits...

Michael EU, jtrichey, Paul K., Donnie, Greg F, BSLO, DarinRG, dmg, Darren, Dave


So we should have a 5 song tiebreaker between the songs that got 9 votes, with the top 4 being inducted, and the last one being automatically nominated for the General Vote next month.
