After having such an amazing rebirth on the 360 tour, my vote goes to Even Better Than The Real Thing.

This is the first and possibly the only match of the third round where the lower seeded song has beaten the higher seeded song.  This is testament to the popularity of The Real Thing, which is definitely not an underrated song.  :)

Perhaps the "recently toured" effect helped it?

Gone should have won. But EBTTRT is awesome, so not too upset here.

The best one for me was Please beating Kite. I went out and celebrated that with a few beers! LOL

Possibly.  Ditto Zooropa.  Shame U2 haven't toured Acrobat because possibly that would help make the popularity of that song commensurate with its awesomeness, instead of it being an underrated gem. :)

Gone should win this, but I love both songs.  I voted for Gone.

YES!  I may not have gotten Kite, but at least EBTTRT won.
