It's an exceptional final.

I'm absolutely obsessed with Harry Nilsson - All I Think About Is You. Thank you to the sender.
It wasn't me.... but so am I. Great song.

I loved your review of that song. Describing Harry Nilsson who has often been recognised as having one of the strongest vocals in pop music as mumblecore was brilliant and it made total perverse sense to me. Thing is, even though Nilsson was gifted with a very powerful voice, he always knew when to hold back. And Nilsson has always been something of a slacker too, sort of like the Lou Barlow or "Loser" era Beck or his generation. To call Nilsson laidback is something of an understatement. This song is totally ahead of it's time and it really does have Mac Demarco-like quality to it. Had Nilsson been born 25 years later I am sure he would have fit in with the whole lofi aesthetic fabulously.

Actually an even better comparison to Nilsson than Demarco or Barlow would be the guy you won your 1st game with, Bill Callahan, another guy with a very strong voice who nevertheless engaged in what could be described as mumblecore and who like Nilsson used orchestration in a very beautiful but understated way.

Harry Nilsson is nice but I've become too accustomed to that kind of song 😂

I also generally like Judee Sill but this song was a little too pompous.

My song makes me think about travelling through forests, full of pristine scenery and nature one one's own and then meeting your old friends in a clearing of the hill later in the evening. After long trekking you sit around the campfire and start singing . Completely carefree and with no rush. After extinguishing the fire you just relax and watch the stars and ... this song fits this moment better than anything else. It embodies it, full of such spirit.
