9 of my Top 10 songs are in the Top 16, so I'd call this a success - the only one that missed out was Eve.

On the other hand, Octavarium is here, so...  :loser:

Yeah, Octavarium doesn't deserve to be there, but the rest of the "sweet 16" looks fine to me.

8 of my top 10 are there, including all my top 6 :D

ToT, LitS and Voices are in my top 20, so I wouldn't argue with any of them being there.

Scarred, Home, FF and especially BF & SDOIT are the ones that are ranked a fair bit higher than I'd have them.

Only 4 of my top 10- FF, BF, 8VM, and TCoT. Plus BAI beat out TGP so meh. lol

Love all 16 songs, but there's better songs than a few of those imo.

The 2014 Sweet 16 - ACOS, BF, SDoIT, Scarred, Home, FF, LtL, Voices, 8VM, TCoT, LitS, Metropolis, BAI, TtT, ToT, ItNoG.

The way i see it, only BAI and TcoT doesn't deserve to be here, the rest is pretty much some of DT's best.

Songs that made my Top 16 IIRC: Home, FF, 8VM, TCOT, Metropolis, BAI, ITNOG.

Songs from my 16-50th places: BF, Scarred, LtL, TtT, ToT.

ACOS, SDOIT, Voices, LitS are not even in my Top 50.

I really hope ACOS doesn't win this.  :D

In top 16: Scarred (1), TtT (3), Voices (6), BAI (7), LitS (8), ACOS (10),  Metropolis (11), FF (14)
In top 50: ItNoG (17), Home (23), ToT (24), 8VM (26), LtL (34)
Not top 50: TCoT (54), BF (mid-60's or so), SDoIT (like, 80ish)

Can't complain too much. Numbers just based off the list I did last year, not too much has changed in all honesty anyways. If over half my top 10 can be represented here then, yeah, no complaints :V

Yep, a couple of those might fall outside of my top 10 but they are all in the category of elite DT songs for me (I just think there are more than 10 of those).

Most pleased to see Breaking All Illusions (deserving of moving to long-term DT classic status) and In The Name Of God in there.

should his vote not count for some reason?  It also won because 19 other people thought it was the superior song.

No, that's not it. It's smart that DOC waits until the end so that if there is a tie like this, he can break it.

I was surprised it was that close.  I thought that TOT would defeat ITNOG by a decent margin.

This guy gets it :) . It hasn't been fun not voting for each match, but I think that this is the best way to prevent a tie, which is fine during the season, but can't happen in a tournament.

Some interesting notes. In last year's tournament, Breaking All Illusions knocked out Trial of Tears 19-17. Also, In the Name of God made it to the final four.
