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.

Sunday Bloody Sunday and City of Blinding Lights, but if I had 3 choices Unknown Caller would be in there.

Daddy's Gonna Pay is pretty good, but no contest versus '40', IMO.

'40' the album version ain't that spectacular. Sorry.

I like it live, but Daddy's Gonna Pay is just so weird, so bizarre, so DIFFERENT that it deserves the win.

I actually prefer the album version to most live versions- certainly the neutered PopMart, Vertigo and 360 (Well, it was only played once on 360 but that may be one of its least impressive performances ever, sadly enough) versions. It is very atmospheric.

I agree only I actually like the very simplistic acoustic version on popmart. It sounded almost like a lullaby.

Wow, last minute too. Not really sure it can be called 'cheating' given that '40' is a pretty well-liked song. It's not as though A Man And A Woman has stormed to a resounding landslide. :P
