2012 Ultimate U2 Song Tournament: The Final
« on: March 20, 2012, 05:54:50 AM »
It's interesting that the number 1 and number 2 seeded songs in this tournament from the third round on have both reached the final.  The seeding system based on the songs' performances in the first two rounds seems to have been fair and accurate.

The Fly topped its first and second round groups, was seeded number 1, and beat Dirty Day, Mofo, One & Streets to reach the final.

Ultraviolet topped its first and second round groups, was seeded number 2, and beat Mysterious Ways, A Sort of Homecoming, Zooropa & With or Without You to reach the final.

Happy Voting. :)

The Fly. Better lyrics. Killer guitar solo.

The Fly, although it isn't in my top ten U2 songs.

A pretty weak match-up for a Final in my opinion. Both great songs, but I can't help but think that Ultraviolet, in particular, only got here because of tactical votes. (I'm gonna get murdered for saying that now :D).

My vote went for The Fly.

I don't get that.  People might have voted tactically in the first two group rounds - where people voted Ultraviolet the number 2 seed -but in the other rounds people had a clear choice of two songs from which to vote for their preferred song.  If 'tactical' voting means voting for the song they prefer least, I just don't understand why they would.

I would have voted for WOWY if it had made the final, but since it didn't, my vote goes to The Fly.  :)

Neither are the "Ultimate" U2 song, sadly, but I went with Ultraviolet.  At least that's in my top 5, whereas The Fly isn't even in my top 30

That doesn't really surprise me, OAP.
