I CAAAN'T VOOOOOTE D: The first one contains two themes I'm not fully worried about, the second contains a theme I refuse to listen to, the third is too close for me to decide, and the fourth is, too! @___@ I'll come up with votes, though. :3 I'm not really that distressed. This is a pretty amazing top 8. I'm gonna be honest.

A nifty calendar I made and then forgot to advertize!
The UGXloggery ... really needs an update.

1) Sonic Unleashed - Perfect Dark Gaia
2) Bravely Default - Serpent Eating the Ground – This better win the whole tournament; it's a rollercoaster of a song.
3) Persona 3 - The Battle for Everyone's Souls
4) Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 - Solaris (Phase 2) – Great build-up – great pay-off. The other one isn't bad, but it has come far enough and beyond in my books for such a mediocre performance.

Currently on the plate:
Mount and Blade: Warband – Napoleonic Wars
Chivalry
Super Mario 3D World – Finishing the last few levels.
Mario Kart 8

1) Sonic Unleashed - Perfect Dark Gaia — Just better. Don't ask me why.
2) Bravely Default - Serpent Eating the Ground — While Dust has a good one, this is just so incredible. I don't have words to express how awesome it is
3) Radiant Historia: An Earnest Desire for Grey — Once again, Persona sounds like an edgy Shimomura rip-off. It just can't be as great as the real thing.
4) Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - It Has to Be This Way — I just love the subtlety of the lyrics (as opposed to some certain other boss themes). It just works so well.

And, in the name of shameless advertising, I just revised my Serpent Devouring the Horizon arrangement, and will finalize it in the next few days.

While I'm still patient enough to do it:

1) Bayonetta - The Greatest Jubilee — I really don't care either way. As far as I'm concerned, this will be the last successful bracket for either song, as Serpent Eating the Ground is considered by many to be THE best final boss theme ever, and from what I accidentally heard thanks to someone's playlist. >.> I can definitely see why.

2) STILL NOT VOTING — Even though I heard about half of this in the background, I was only slightly paying attention and have actually managed to forget, by this point. I should really get around to finishing this game but UUUGGH! That back half is so bad. >.< I lost my steam sometime just before the Fire Temple and the momentum carried me until the door of the Earth Temple and I've only just now picked but up. Such great music, but I'm really starting to drag my feet on finishing this game.

3) Persona 3 - The Battle For Everyone's Souls — Dunno who this Shimomura person is. Dun really care. This song has such an amazing build-up and reward. It honestly could win on that, alone, but the rock feel and instrumentation is backed by some really amazing composition. This is another extremely strong contender for the finals.

4) Metal Gear Rising Revengeance - It Has to Be This Way — I don't feel like I need to explain it, at this point, but can I just say, I LOVE this song so much. It's just so perfect for a final boss theme. It's pumping and crazy and the lyrics are just subtle enough to not be embarrassing and the arrangement and the instrumentation and... and... and.. and...!!!!!! If this song loses here, I may cry, but at least it will lose to a worthy opponent.

@Maelstrom ... Wat? "The Battle For Everyone's Souls" sounds nothing like KH, Radiant Hystoria, or really anything else you just named. At least not to my knowledge.

1) Bravely Default - Serpent Eating the Ground — If this does not win, I will be very angry.

2) Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 - Solaris (Phase 2) — None of the songs I wanted to win won. :( But this is still better than Persona.

I haven't listened to this song in a few weeks...I forget how good it is! I'm glad I didn't decide to do an UGXwolf because I don't know if I'll ever beat this game.

2) Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 - Solaris (Phase 2)

Golden Sun battle music is stuck in my head. I haven't decided if it's a good thing yet.
