U2 Album Track Tournament Update
« on: April 12, 2017, 05:28:41 PM »
So we are down to the Last 16.

For the 4th Round I am going to divide the 16 remaining songs into 4 groups of 4

You will be invited to vote for your favourite 2 songs from each group and the top 2 from each group will move onto the next round.

The 16 songs in Round 4 which qualified from Round 3 are:

Until The End of The World
Running To Stand Still
Zoo Station
New Years Day
Where The Streets Have No Name
Mofo
One Tree Hill
Lemon
Zooropa
One
Acrobat
The Unforgettable Fire
Bad
Ultra Violet (Light My Way)
The Fly
Stay (Faraway So Close)

The 16 songs will be drawn into 4 groups of 4 randomly by me using a random number generator.

I'll post the groups tomorrow.

I'd replace Streets with Please and One with An Cat Dubh and you have pretty got many of my favorite songs in this list!

What if I add back 4 more and make it 20.  Which ones should I add back?  Gone, Please, An Cat Dubh, 40?  Thoughts?

Replace the woefully inferior Streets (to the rest of the songs on that list) with Acrobat or Please and you have 8 of my top ten songs there!

Wow.
