2012 Ultimate U2 Song Tournament: Round 1 - Group 3
« on: February 15, 2012, 05:36:55 AM »
Vote for 2 songs.  The top 4 songs progress to the next round.

Groupings are decided by how the songs performed in the U2 album song ranking threads that were conducted some time ago.

The groupings for the second round will be determined by how the winning songs from the first round groups performed i.e how many votes they polled in the first round groupings.  So in effect, the first two rounds of the group stages are qualifying rounds for the third round.

The third round (surviving 32 songs) will be straightforward knockout matches.  Each song will be seeded based on how many votes they polled in the second round groupings.  So for example, seed one will face seed 32 and seed two will face seed 31, and so on.

What these songs evoke make it very difficult for me to vote. It would definitely depend on my mood. Sigh...

Darn, this one was hard. Even better and Tomorrow, but I feel bad for Wire, October or Lemon.

Strange how the poll looks like you could cut it into 3 pieces and have each look exactly the same.  :D
