I think Donnie is right about Dire Straits and the tiebreaker, but I counted 15 votes for "Jack the Ripper".

The majority of the vote differences don't really matter in the final results, but if my count on "So Far Away" by Dire Straits is correct, then it's automatically inducted, and we have a 4/5 tie-breaker instead of 5/6 tiebreaker.

I calculated the following voters that voted for "So Far Away" by Dire Straits...

Michael EU, jtrichey, Paul K., Donnie, Greg F, BSLO, DarinRG, dmg, Darren, Dave


So we should have a 5 song tiebreaker between the songs that got 9 votes, with the top 4 being inducted, and the last one being automatically nominated for the General Vote next month.
