    Default Great Music - Finals: 2010-2014 (Final 14 of 14)

    For this playoffs poll, please choose one track to move on to the Tournament Finals as the representative of this time period in music.

    IMPORTANT! Please do not simply vote on name recognition (or lack thereof) alone. Please do listen to each nomination and then make your choice. Even if you think you know a track well, it's still worth giving it a listen for a refresher.

    The poll will run for twelve days. Discussion is greatly encouraged!

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

    Adele - Set Fire to the Rain (2011)


    Hozier - Take Me to Church (2013)

    ...can you imagine only finding 6 people - 2 parents, 2 siblings (of 6!), a cousin, and an ex-fiancee - who would actually pay attention?

    Two very solid songs, but Adele gets my vote.
    Only the gentle are ever really strong.

    I feel like I am getting to hear something very special each time it's played. The lyrics are poetry and the message behind them is timeless.

    If this were Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" I'd have more of a choice.

    Agreed, this is my least favorite Adele single so far.

    Take Me to Church
    One of the soul-touching tunes for me
    I guess it's just my way of being me

    Take Me to Church is overrated. I can think of at least a dozen other songs that deserved to be in the final ahead of it....

    Adele - Set Fire to the Rain is the better song by far, and unquestionably the only real choice here!

    I was raised Southern Baptist. I know what it's like to be told that I am going to hell every Sunday for something I have no control over. TMTC quickens the fibers of my being every time I hear it. I cannot state my love and gratitude for this song enough.

    Very poignant. I was raised in a devout Nazarene home. (I MAY have backslid.)

    a formidable song

    And we are tied with minutes to go

    Someone break the tie, quick!

    Stated votes appear to be tied 6-6, 7-6 in favor of "Rain" if we count Santa, who did not actually vote.

    The poll has closed. The winner of the 2010-2014 time period is Adele - Set Fire to the Rain (2011).



    It will represent this era in the Tournament Finals.
