    Hard Candy
    Miami

    Two of my favorite songs of all time. “Miami” is maybe the only song in the catalog I’d consider voting for instead of “Round Here,” if those two come head to head at some point. The challengers are great too, but these are easy calls for me.

    All great songs. I want to say this is maybe their most consistent album? But I don’t feel like any of the prior three albums are inconsistent so I don’t know why I’m thinking that.

    all we have is time

    Hard Candy
    Goodnight L.A. (since this has been a recent obsession of mine and "Miami" will win anyway...)

    And this round comes to a near unanimous close, foiled only because @duritzfan13 had to be different!

    Butterfly in Reverse - 0
    Hard Candy - 7

    Miami - 6
    Goodnight L.A. - 1

    “Butterfly in Reverse” now joins the ranks of shut outs in the bracket, which feels more wrong than usual.

    Round Three begins next!

    If I Could Give All My Love, or: Richard Manuel is Dead
    Up All Night (Frankie Miller Goes to Hollywood)
    Hard Candy
    Miami

    These should be the top four from this album, imo. All fantastic songs.

    If I Could Give All My Love (I don’t know if I don’t care for New Frontier just because of “Come on children mind the gap,” but man, that line irks me every time.)

    Up All Night (WSYCWIC is great but it’s never been a favourite.)

    Holiday in Spain (Tough call)

    Miami (Tougher call. The two best pop songs they’ve written, maybe? The chorus of American Girls is probably the best one on here, but the outro of Miami is one of my favourite moments in their entire catalogue.)

    American Girls is great, but, with all due respect, it should not get any votes against Miami.

    I don't get the love for Miami, and American Girls is probably a top 15 CC for me.:hearno:

    Pretty much my exact thoughts on that Miami vs. American Girls matchup!

    all we have is time

    New Frontier
    Up All Night (easy, but definitely hurts to vote against WSYCWIC)
    Hard Candy (tough.. but this was my #1 for a while)
    Miami

    These ones were tough. Holiday in Spain vs. Hard Candy has been the toughest one of all of these so far.
