And so it's come down to this, the last two songs standing.

Happy voting. :)

My final vote of the tournament goes to Bad - my 5th or 6th favourite song off The Unforgettable Fire.

Although to be fair, Streets deserves its place in the final having eliminated some big beasts in the earlier rounds, beating With or Without You, ASOH, UTEOTW and One to get here.

Let's hope it falls at the final hurdle.

Not a clue, but I like it far more than Bad.

Indeed. Top 10 for most I'd think.

Hopefully any possible future tournament will include 11 brand new album tracks, and, even more hopefully, one of those might reach the final.

I think its a song about how people live shouldn't judge who they really might be on the inside, hence the streets having "no name." So to judge homeless people as being druggies who will do anything to get their fix is wrong, when there is some homeless who are very nice and kind, and are doing their best to get through their predicament.
