Drowning Man
UTEOTW

This one was hard, though. I also wanted to pick LNOE and When I Look At The World.

UTEOTW and Love Rescue Me. Two songs that define two different U2s to me.

If Winter can't make it then I hope Numb does.

Surprised to see WILATW doing so well.  Not surprised (But disheartened) to see Pride doing so badly. That said, WILATW probably benefits from another fairly weak group with one or two very clear favourites and then a group of much lesser songs. (Not judging them in quality, although I'd say they are all fairly 'bleh' by U2 standards, just saying that none really stand out as obvious fan favourites which will get a lot of votes)

I would say that every group in the first round had about one or two clear favourites, but then what do you expect in the first round of a tournament; four clear favourites in one group and no clear favourites in another?

The rest is down to individual taste; what is 'bleh' for one is loved by others, e.g Cedars and Miami.  In this group, for example, I would have thought Pride is a more obvious 'fan favourite' than LNOE, but opinion on this forum would seem to disagree.

Pride has always been quite possibly the least loved of U2's 'classics' by the fans on this board anyway.

I wasn't just referring to fans on this board.  And I'm not aware of any poll that has ascertained your observation about Pride.

Crazy! Right?

Everyone who did not vote for Pride needs to watch the video of the making of The Unforgettable Fire. It might be overplayed, but it is still passionate and driving.
