Oops I think I forgot to include a Dead Mouse! :o :oops: What should I do now? :lol: I'd like to give it to Where Is The Line then (next to the Fortune cookie if that's possible; if not, please give the Fortune cookie to Oceania and the Mouse to WITL) so that I don't mess up skapunk's votes!

Voted for Oceania since I got enough of Where Is The Line recently. I still enjoy Oceania after many repeated listenings.

So, here we are, finally, at the finale. Its been a great game Chun! Your innovative rounds were a lot of fun. All your efforts are highly appreciated. :)

It was a very difficult right from the beginning. Medulla is a great album and to see such a nice response for one of her most underrated album is very surprising. Only on UKMix. 8-)

As for the finale, amazing songs in the final. Love them both a lot, but I voted for Oceania. That song really resonates with me. Her vocals, the lyrics and the choir, everything about it is just beautiful. And living close to the ocean makes it even more special to me.

It was a great game. Thanks again, Chun!

Where Is The Line, it was one of the few songs I really clicked with, and the video was so creepy and brilliant

Oceania! Because that song is her best song to date, not my favorite but definitely her best... Such a master-piece of a song. It deserves to win this survivor the most! Everything about this track is just magical :cry:


Chun, you did an AMAZING job! I really enjoyed in this survivor, and i'm kinda sad it ended :lol: :oops:

Oceania
It's simply one of Björk's best and it would be very difficult to top. I dare to say 'Oceania' is her best vocal performance to date. The 'Your sweat is salty...' part gets me every time.
Where Is The Line, on the other hand, while it's an amazing track, gets on my nerves at times because of its ending. The 'I want to be flexible...' part gives me chills though, and this song is one that I can totally relate to, it's more personal to me than Oceania.
However, I need to rate the songs here and not exactly my personal experiences, and even though I absolutely love both, I still go with Oceania.

Thank you, RaFanatic. I just realized that this survivor lasted for 30 days. :D It was fun, we often had 14 and more participants (well, only on the easy rounds, not on the weird ones), which was great and now I need a break. So, who will do the Biophilia and Homogenic survivors? They are still on hold and xtofer said he will not be able to do them.

Aww chun, I totally get that you need a rest now but let me tell you that this was an amazing survivor and I would be more than glad if you hosted either the Biophilia or the Homogenic survivor. :) :oops: There are many creative minds on this forum but I hope I don't offend anyone when I say that only very few of us could live up to the standard you've just presented! :wink: Thanks again!

For me the perfect winner would've been Who Is It, but since we already lost it in the countdown my vote goes to my second favorite song from Medúlla... Where Is The Line. I love the haunting sound and the video fits the song perfectly.

The two are my favourite but I vote for Oceania. They´re experimental and different tracks but there´s the "Björk essence" on them which makes only of hers.

I voted for Oceania because the song makes me feel alive and reminds me of all the fun times I've had swimming.
