Since the other two matches of the day look like becoming landslides, we'll have another match of the day.

The winner of this match faces the winner of Match 13 in the fourth round.

Happy Voting. :)

This is the single most painful choice of the entire tournament, as both songs are in my Top 10.

Lemon edges out Wild Horses because of its daring, groundbreaking music and lyrics.

Looks like the next match will be Zooropa versus Lemon. Which will be quite interesting.

Difficult for me too, because both are in my top 11, but I'll go for Wild Horses 'cos I like it more.  The next match really will be the most painful choice of the entire tournament for me.

This is a killer.

Lemon has really grown on me over the last several years, but Wild Horses was my #2 U2 song back in my teen years, when my taste was even worse than it is now  ;D   Horses by a hair.

Took me 0.1 secs to pick Lemon. Wonderful experimentation that I hope they do again.

They tried that. It was called Unknown Caller.

I hope they never try to do it again. :P

In what way, shape or form is Unknown Caller an example of experimentation?

I'm sure Bono and co. thought the robo "restart and reboot yourself" gobbledey gook was experimental.

Well Unknown Caller is sort of experimental (that chorus was quite a non-U2 thing to do), as was Boots even if it didn't work out great. They may be closer to breaking new ground than we are giving them credit for.

Lemon is a very good song, but it's so very, very far from brilliant.

Who's Gonna Ride, by contrast, is amazing.
