My bad. That's the one that should've been off the list. Removed Rilo Kiley on accident, and left that one on.

Song, or song on said album? It was a tough call between that track and Skinny Love for me? Do I pander, or put on my preference. I went pander until you DQ'd the whole album.

So how do the later rounds work? Do I have to pick new songs from the same album?

What about expanded rosters in each round?
