No problem Lax34; Ricky Nelson was so underrepresented in the Song Project and this Artist Vote justified some long-time snubs. Thanks to those who supported it.

On a side note, what 2016 songs are voters thinking of nominating next month in the general vote? I would like to hear some suggestions and I'm curious what's at the top of voters' lists.

  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!
