Lyrically the songs have nothing to do with each other. Despite the musical segue into each other I cannot consider them the same song. Fez - Being Born is a poor analogy because Fez is a musical intro to Being Born. It has no distinct identity of its own.

Off topic, but you were the other vote for Grace I'm guessing?

New Years Day and An Cat Dubh / Into The Heart, although I would have voted Miracle Drug also.

We shall be taking a two month break from the tournament in order to fully digest and come to terms with the results of the first round.

Hmmm...in a few months it will be high spring and then everyone will be in a different season of their U2ness. I definitely feel this way about my music.

And, digest or choke? Seems Miracle Drug could go top 64 and given how elated some were that UC didn't make it...

Which U2 songs are in season during springtime?

All That You Can't Leave Behind has always felt like a very "spring" album to me.
