Two of the best from the '80s.   :)

The winner of this match will face the winner of Match 5 in the third quarter-final of the tournament.

With Or Without You. Bad is a lot of sitting around waiting for the "wide awake" payoff with a bunch of padding around it. WOWY may suck live now, but the album version remains transcendental.

With or Without You might be U2's greatest song when in terms of JUST studio recordings.  WOWY, obviously

With or Without You, both are classic 80s U2 tracks though.
