    The nominees are (please let me know if any video doesn't play for you):

    No Doubt - Don't Speak (1995)

    It's weird a bit seeing both songs from the beginning of this time period. So nothing was good for the rest of that time? Not even this, from '98?

    I don't think either song would've been in my top 10 for this time period when we started. The No Doubt song probably would've been top 20 though.

    Looking back, I voted for the Seal song more often than I realized in the later rounds. It was up against some pretty weak competition. Probably quite a few better songs were left along the wayside because of this.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    Once we get to the Tournament Finals, I'll put up information on how each winner ended up winning its era. Trivia time!

    Don't hate me Pablo but I like "Don't Speak", I don't love it. I get bored with it at about the 3 minute mark. I feel it would be a better song if shortened. I would never listen to it twice in a row. "Kiss from a Rose" always seems to be ending way too fast and I can easily listen to it more than once in a row.

    Closes at 4:57 PM ET on January 1. It should say so at the top of the poll. Might be in your local time, too.

    I've just listened to both; now I remember them and have to vote before they disappear from my memory without leaving a trace (which already happened before)

    Kiss is marginally better, although just as forgettable

    ETA: ...and bears tied them
