    There is something so epic and moving about the Reprise. It's not your typical song... it's not something that would be a single or a hit, but when you've listened to the album again and again (as most of us have), it begins to really stand apart. It's something greater, something beyond the norm, something special.

    I cast my vote for the Doolin - Dalton / Desperado Reprise for the win.

    Agreed. Doolin-Dalton/Desperado Reprise, as clunky as that title is.

    Well - I was expecting the reprise to win, but I didn't think the vote would be so lop-sided. It saddens me a little because I think Tequila Sunrise is a gorgeous song too. I'm selfishly kind of glad that it's not going to be a clean sweep and even considered voting for it if that had been the case. However, in the history of this board, this is our third Desperado Survivor game. I lobbied for a reprise victory in both previous games, but each time, it was a final showdown between Desperado and Tequila Sunrise. Desperado won the first game and Tequila Sunrise won the second, so, I am very happy with these results. I totally agree with everything Soda said. This song is it's own unique song, but it also captures the beauty of Doolin-Dalton and Desperado, as well as the theme of the entire album. I can't think of a better ending to a concept album than the repetition of them singing the namesake ( 'Desperado') to a fade out. Sheer brilliance IMHO. So ...

    I cast my vote for the Doolin-Dalton/Desperado Reprise for the win!!!

    I vote for DD/Desperado Reprise for the win!
    It’s such a gorgeous song - musically and lyrically - and it relays a tragic story which ties up the whole album concept beautifully.

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!

    I, of course, vote for Doolin-Dalton/Desperado Reprise for the win. It is the perfect culmination of the album, beautifully bringing together the major themes of the album in a truly emotional and wonderful finale.

    Congrats to the Reprise.

    Again, I'm more of a hits guy and I love more straightahead rock music so that's not saying the reprise isn't good. It's just not my thing and I agree that it captures the concept album, I just don't care for the concept/theme so much.

    Congratulations to the Reprise. Its funny, for a long time I could have left D-D and the Reprise as nice songs but not hard hitters. But after seeing them performed live during the HOTE shows they really blew my mind. I really love both of them now, but really on this album, whats not to love??

    Thanks to Dreamer and Soda for steering this survivor, you have done a great job as always!!

    I got busy this weekend and totally forgot about the final round! I would have been at a loss what to vote for anyway...I would have picked Desperado to win and while I love Tequila Sunrise and like the reprise, I don't know that I could have picked either as the best song on the album. Great game!

    Well, here I am again-too late to vote for the winner. I just can't remember to do these things on the weekends. I wish the last vote wouldn't have been on the weekend, but that's the way the ball bounces.

    It would have been tough to decide which song to vote for anyway, cause I love both of the last two. I'd have probably voted for Tequila Sunrise, just because! Both songs are gorgeous though. I agree with all the good comments made for each one!

    CONGRATS TO DOOLIN' DALTON/DESPERADO REPRISE!

    Great game! And thanks to Soda and Dreamer for doing all you do!
