These current pandemic times

Hopefully a vaccine
Lower the Spoon
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Hollow Years > Afterlife and OAMOT > AFIL.

Don't really like any of the four songs in the other two matches.

Nice to have two WDADU-tracks and two non-album-tracks directly competing.
Afterlife>Hollow Years: I never thought HY to be something other than a random ballad, tbh, nevertheless it seemed to be an integral part of every friggin liveshow they did for some time (26th most played DT song according to setlist.fm, that's something I guess).
The beginning of AFIL has the bonus of being, like, the first bars of officially released DT music ever. And that rhythmic pattern around the 3:15 mark, simple but effective, always gets me. While OAMOT has this strange rhythm, a strong accent on the 1, and lots of lyrics squeezed in a short amount of time, it reminds me of, for lack of a better description, a pirate song or something. still like it, though.
After voting against RTK the last round, that chorus is stuck in my head, but in a good way. It gets my vote this time.

OAMOT . . . reminds me of, for lack of a better description, a pirate song or something.

I first heard OAMOT at my first DT concert in November 1992.  I was, by that point, intimately familiar with Images and Words, and I knew WDADU existed, but I hadn't tracked down a copy yet.  After the show, my friend and I referred to OAMOT as "the pirate song" because we didn't know the actual title.  To this day, I still think of it that way, and you're the first other person I've ever heard refer to it that way.  RAAAWWWRR!!!   :yarr :yarr

It has almost a Celtic/Irish/Scottish folk song feel. I could definitely see Fish singing it.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.
