Beautiful Ride wins for me. While I prefer Do Something That Scares You lyrically, I like the music to Beautiful Ride better. As I am generally more of a music person than a lyric person, it wasn't too difficult to go with Beautiful Ride. Of course, if Higher Ground would have been an option I would have voted for it, but for some completely INEXPLICABLE REASON Higher Ground didn't get past the last round, which still freaks me out and is one of the great mysteries of life.

This would be a very nice final pairing!

Beautiful Ride, although Do Something grew much in me a lot.

Because Everything Changes is a much, much better song than Higher Ground?

I'd actually be interested in hearing more about what you and other fans love about Higher Ground. Please feel welcome to start a Song Discussion: Higher Ground thread to share your thoughts on it if you have the time and inclination.

I do know what it feels like to lose a favorite song too early in a tournament - I remember being upset that Water From Wine got knocked out early in the b-sides tournament. But it happens and at least Higher Ground had a strong showing in its last match. You are not alone in loving the song.

Honestly, I'd be pretty happy with any of the four remaining songs in the final. I like them all a great deal. Very hard to choose between them, though.

Do Something That Scares You

One of the riskiest and boldest songs Heather's done in over 10 years, I think. I may not feel as personally close to the song as I do to Beautiful Ride, but I cannot deny that it's a beathtakingly beautiful song, an explosion of imagery and rock and roll. She doesn't hold back.

Kinda hard to vote against a rocking song with these kinds of lyrics:

and I washed my hands in the clear green water
rushing from the mountain like some kind of absolution,
like a resurrection.
I put my whole body into the water,
like I was transforming, a chrysalis.
I could taste the dirt,
the red earth on my tongue.

and I felt like I was just a girl, seventeen,
looking for something, edgy and green,
and bursting and beautiful
and undecipherable with the reins held tight...



I could feel rain on my skin, sweet and cold,
and I could feel all the pain from all the years,
all the sweat and all the untold passions and the tears,
like rain flowering in me so strong



and I put up my bony arms and I cried with the rain,
and I felt myself becoming myself,
like I was freed from the beliefs that I'd been handed as a child
like I could see the world from above
like I could live pure

DO SOmethjing That Scares You.

Much more original, much more powerful, much more risky. Almost a Sugar-like song.

I love Heather rocking, i love Heather singing great lyrics and I especially love if Heather touches with lyrics and music. I'm not fond if she goes too commercial.
Beautiful Ride is commercial but one of the better songs, has some speed, which I like. Do Something That Scares You is the best song from the album in terms of rocking. Everything chances is the best in term of lyrics from the album for me.
For this semifinal it's clear, Do Something!

Two of my favourites on the album, and much better than the other semi finalists, but I had to go with DSTSY - I just find it a little more interesting and leftfield musically though Beautiful Ride is so anthemic I feel bad for voting against it.

Ouch.

Such is the price of taking risks, I suppose.

Pop songs it is then!
