How is a song that made it to second place "poor"?

I didn't vote for it, but a worthy winner. Good to see it beat the haters. :)

There are quite a few who hate it, and quite a few others who may not *hate* it but really didn't want to see it win, or even get that far.

Streets beat WOWY, ASOH, UTEOTW, One and Bad to win this year's tournament, so in that respect it's a worthy winner.

I just wish that it was knocked out in the third round by WOWY.

I don't "hate" Streets, it was one of the highlights of the Paris 360 show. But the album version is just OK, and it's just not that interesting a song to me anymore. But it will win every poll, or come close, which probably adds to people's contempt of it. It's kind of a lowest common denominator song (like BD), which explains its appeal, I guess.

This.  It especially explains its appeal at massive stadium shows.

I don't hate it (I guess one would have to give a toss about the song to do that), but I think it is a very average and quite uninteresting U2 song.  I prefer City of Blinding Lights.

Interesting. I can see your perspective.

I do think that WOWY and Bad are the two ultimate U2 songs. Still love UV, and Horses, and ASOH, and Gloria, and . . .  ;)
