17 October 2015: After three weeks of voting, here are the final 32 songs chosen from the complete set of 192. An astonishing 1,400 people voted (well, 1,400 different IP addresses), generating an even more astonishing 199,796 match-ups. This meant that every song appeared in something like 2,000 contests, so there’s a decent chance that every song met every other song at least once. Amazing.

The average voter (or IP address) generated 140 contests. However, the median was more like 40, as a handful of people voted a ridiculous number of times. In the end, it doesn’t look like their superhuman efforts made a significant difference. 48 people voted just once. Was it that hard? So, here are our final 32 songs, in strictly alphabetical order.
