Worst U2 Song contest - Round 9, the Pop er
« on: January 24, 2013, 06:20:57 AM »
No, I'm not including all of Passengers, it's not released as U2. Miss Sarajevo and Your Blue Room were PERFORMED as U2 so I'm including those.

As much as it worked live, studio version didn't work for me. Miami.

Holy Joe. Playboy Mansion is a runner up.

Where's Sweetest Thing? I wouldn't vote for it because I actually like it, but I think of it as Pop era, even though it sounds more ATYCLB-ish.

HMTMKMKM is sort of a Achtung Baby/Zooropa era song for me, but I see that it could be considered a Pop era song.

You'd be wrong to include it in the Pop era Star...

I voted Staring At The Sun, just cause it is the only song that I might skip of these, Miami studio version included.

I cant stand Miami on the record.

I can tolerate it live.

I dont like Playboy Mansion either. But Miami annoys me more.

I don't know Holy Joe well enough to have any opinion on it.

Voted If God Will Send His Angels. Mostly for those stupid lines about blondes, country songs, and Christmas trees.

Glad there were some weaker (albeit still excellent) songs other than album tracks to chose from in this round.

Do You Feel Loved.  I find it weak.  So is Holy Joe, but I rarely listen to it anyway.  I actually like the albums ending more than its beginning and occasionally start on its "B-Side" and rarely listen to its "A-Side".  I do have the vinyl, but I don't remember exactly where the divide is (it may have 4 sides as some of these later U2 albums, do, but I'm basically starting at Gone and moving forward.

Last Night On Earth was the last song on side one.

I've never heard Holy Joe, but I voted for it because I randomly assumed it's not as good as The Playboy Mansion (my least favorite on the ones I've heard). :P
