How can a song as bland as EBTTRT be beating the brilliance that is Lemon?

I think people are just voting for it because it's on Achtung Baby.

EBTTRT is a unique rock song and one of the best in the U2 catalogue.

Lemon is certainly different, but I only voted for it because it's better than the alternatives, not because it's remotely close to one of U2's top 50 songs!

I predict Lemon will make it to the final 32, at least.

I remember Lemon making it to the top 16 last time.

Actually I'm going to see if I can find the results for the first one so that we can compare them once this one is done.

We Real Fans should band together and ensure that all the obscure '90s songs make it to the end. It may mean voting for Babyface over Streets, but no great movement arose without sacrifice and planning.

But what obscure 90s song should win is the question?

I'm partial to that blaring alarm sound at the end of The Wanderer.

UTEOTW should win.

And in all honesty, I'd rather listen to Babyface than Streets any day of the week.  Even on sundays.
