Stay and Staring At The Sun.

I do love Mothers Of The Disappeared, but I couldn't vote for it against those two songs.

Desire on Lovetown and Zoo TV should have automatically granted it a spot here.

I couldn't agree more.  I'm glad to have come of age in a world where Desire was a huge radio hit.

It's a shame they don't play it live the way it should be played.  It's one of those songs that could easily be reinvented each time around, ZOO TV proved that.

I know, I know...and my serious blunder wouldn't have saved either Desire or SATS. Wow!

I had Desire pegged for a final 32 spot, but based on this showing, that's highly unlikely.

I'm shocked. It's such a straightforward rock and roll song to me. How can it not get a bigger thumbs up response? I blew it, but looks like everyone else did too.  >:(

Clearly you would vote for the song with actual meaning and depth (SATS) over the foot-tapping-but-not-much-else song (Desire).

There is a meaning in Desire, if you don't see it you're not looking deep enough.

I don't consider "She makes me horny" to be "meaningful".
