City of Blinding Lights and Sunday Bloody Sunday

This, but only because I was worried for these two after Desire went down in the other one. Still can't fathom that one!

What other song I really wanted to vote for was Unknown Caller thinking 40 was a shoe in since it seems to get lots of love here. I'd say I'd tie it w/ UC, but since UC is so maligned on these boards, I would have voted for it before 40.

I just don't get the love for If God Would Send His Angels. Something about it has never clicked for me. Clearly, it must just be me because it's doing very well here.  ::)

Very surprised at the low numbers for SBS. People who don't even like U2 LOVE this song. Hmmmm...

Interesting! A three way tie between 40, Daddy's Gonna Pay, and Unknown Caller.

80s, 90s, and 00s.

City of Blinding Lights (my all time favorite song on some days)
Sunday Bloody Sunday

easy

sounds consistent

Beautiful Day is my all time favorite, but I live in New York City.  Listening to City of Blinding Lights while walking through Times Square or looking at the skyline from my school can make it my all time favorite song for that moment

Don't forget, there is still time to vote in this group if you haven't already.  And if you have, then remember the old adage: vote early, vote often.
