I think a full band version of Stay should be the closing song for next tour.

I think a new song should and preferably a rocker.

At one point in this match Streets was faraway, but now it's so close.

Voted Streets, but I'm sure Stay will beat it this round.

I was beginning to hope U2 fans would finally be a little unpredictable this time.  But alas........

All we need is two more votes for Stay and then it will be interesting again!

I dislike the suggestion that it is 'uninteresting' and 'predictable' in a negative sense that fans vote continuously for what the vast (although less vocal) majority of them clearly feel to be one of the band's greatest songs ever, if not the greatest.

Put another way, I suspect that many of those complaining wouldn't be complaining if their own favourite song was the one constantly sweeping these polls.

If Streets really was U2's best song, I never would have been much of a fan.  They have songs so much better than this.  Musically AND lyrically the song  really isnt that interesting and never lives up to the intro.

That's just your opinion. I'm sure a large majority of fans would disagree with you. But that would be their opinion. This is all very subjective. My fav u2 song is Ultraviolet. If it doesn't win then that doesn't mean that there is something wrong with this contest or that it's predictable. If streets wins its because the majority of people around here think its the ultimate U2 song and you know what? It probably is.

That proves it then.

It started so well with 14 votes to 4 in favour of Stay.  Now look at it.

If The Fly can't knock this sucker out, then nothing can.

However, my ideal final of The Fly vs WOWY is still on.
