Thanks to paul and Tom for their commentary and videos and bringing us up to 15 voters. (I didn't realize anyone else had recorded "Goin' Back".)

Someone who goes by "xtremetoxicguy" on YouTube has posted an instrumental recreation of Pet Sounds. I like his "Let's Go Away For Awhile".

A few extremely well-known ones I thought about using and nobody mentioned:

The Everly Brothers -- "All I Have To Do Is Dream"

Roy Orbison -- "In Dreams"

The Spencer Davis Group -- "Keep On Running"

I shall be back in three hours to wrap this up and post one last piece of classic escapism unless someone beats me to it.

The results for this week, with 15 voters (subject to confirmation):

Gold -- The Beach Boys, "In My Room" -- 56 points (10-G & 2 ties for G; 3-S)

Silver -- Bruce Springsteen, "Born To Run" -- 38 points (2-G & 2 ties for G; 4-S; 4-B; 3-T)

Bronze -- The Drifters, "Up On The Roof" -- 32 points (1-G; 4-S; 5-B & 2 ties for B; 3-T)

Tin -- The Byrds, "Goin' Back" -- 24 points (0-G; 2-S; 4-B & 2 ties for B; 7-T)

It was fairly close between Bruce and the Drifters early in the week, but then Bruce pulled away. The Byrds got some nice comments but lots of tin votes. I suppose I should have gone with somebody else as the 4th song. Unfortunately, I still don't know which song it should have been.

Thanks to everyone who participated this week. Next we've got Al's love songs to consider.

Finally, here's the all-time greatest escape song. Maybe it should have been in the battle instead of the Byrds. But there are no do-overs in baseball or the battle. *

* Although songs that aren't retired often come back.
