It is once again the ladies' turn to step up to the mic in my little tournament.  Which one of these songs do you think could have mainstream success in my alternative fantasy world where prog artists are played on mainstream radio?

A truly out of Purson experience?:


Can you feel the Electricity on this one?:


Can you feel a buzz on this one?:



A cure for insomnia?:





They don't have a YouTube video so they're playing dirty!:



Which one of these songs have the best opportunity to having mainstream appeal in my alternative fantasy reality where the mainstream actually listen to music produced by progressive rock bands?


If you want to check out the ladies from the road from the first two groupings, the links are here:

First one that is a complete swing and a miss for me.

Oh well.  Maybe this string of polls has reached its end.

Hope not. None of these grabbed me, but I will vote, Rosalie Cunningham.

Difficult choice between Rosalie Cunningham and Frequency Drift, which are for me the stand out songs here, the most accessible and pleasant listens. Will give my vote to Cunningham, finally. I like the operatic quality of the song, whereas FD is a bit more conventional (though I very much like the voice).

Or maybe you could just slow down the pace...? I haven't had time yet to listen to the previous selection.

PS The Cunningham YT didn't work for me, but I found a working one here.

I actually liked Cellar Darling the best...listening a bit as a folk-ish/fantasy piece.  Frequency Drift was almost too polished for me, I liked Cunningham's concept, didn't care for her vocals that much.  Bee didn't work for me at all.  I like Far Meadow, and their vocalist, just not so much that piece.

Liked Cellar Darling...reminded me a bit of Kate Bush or Tori Amos.

Thank you for your responses.  I will continue with the polls.  I will post the Bring the Thunder #3 in a little while.  I probably won't be able to post the next thread until Friday.

This poll could really use some more participation and votes.  It is open until the end of the month.  Give the songs a listen and then give them a vote.  Cheers!

Party time!  Excellent! 

The link seems to be broke on the first video, so trying again to post it.
