I couldn't care less in all honesty. Sometimes is U2's finest ballad and it is, by far, the most emotional song on this list. It probably won't go through to the next round, which doesn't surprise me with the people on this forum  ;D

P.S. did I see you that you picked SYCMIOYO? I thought you were rather uninspired by the Bomb tunes. 

What? NO! I hate that song.

I picked Streets and Crazy Tonight.

I'm coming to think that you hate every deep emotional song that isn't upbeat...

Clearly you haven't paid attention to my favourite songs. ;)

Cedars Of Lebanon
Moment Of Surrender
One Step Closer
Grace
Stay
Dirty Day
Tomorrow



Stay acoustic?

It seems all us 'cool kids' are voting Acrobat & Velvet Dress.  8)

Must be why Streets has almost as many as both combined. ;)

If you don't receive one, you've been unsuccessful this time.

Depends, have you measured your ego? There are strict minimum standards before you're allowed in the Cool Club. Try as I might, I just can't quite scrape in. :P

Streets and MLK, sue me. I vote for my favorites

Agreed. Screw this 'tactical voting' crap, may the favourite song win.
