I'm hoping that everybody votes tactically in this group and then maybe we can terminate Streets with extreme prejudice in the first round.

To be fair, the riff from Is That All was subsequently used for The Cry, which became the live intro to Electric Co.

While we're dispensing wisdom, I'm pretty sure the line from Bad is "bruised silken sky" (since he just got through saying "colors fly in blue and black," which are the colors of a bruise).

Not that you need to change your name or anything, I'm just saying....

Bruised Silken Sky is too antithetical for me.  Besides, I spent a good many years hearing "through Wilken's sky."  I thought Wilken was a guy (and it turns out I work with a guy named Wilken now).  Why he gets his own sky is beyond me.

Me too, cause if it's not blue, my heart will be crushed. It's like finding out everything I know wrong. Strange how much a difference one (misheard?) lyric would make.

Anyway, Acrobat and... Streets. :P I fail at tactical voting.

It's bruised, I tell ya!

It makes less sense that Bono would sing "True colors fly in blue and black, blue silken sky and burning flag," since it's completely redundant. Plus, blue and black are the colors of a bruise, and the bruised sky is set in juxtaposition to the burning flag.

You're outta your league, kids....

The bolded part was accurate. 

From an aesthetic point of view, I'd rather be redundant than antithetical.  Bruised and silken right next to each other?  Pretty, but a little too pretty.  Besides, repetition and internal rhymes make for good lyrics and poetry.  And not to be a total dweeb, but wouldn't a bruised sky and a burning flag be complementary motifs, not a juxtaposition?  And isn't juxtaposition a good stand-in for my favorite word on this thread antithesis/antithetical?

For what it's worth, I totally dig your explanation and would buy it if doing so didn't complicate the whole name thing.

It's bruised, I can hear in the original studio version that he makes a "br" sound right there and says bruised. Blue would have no "Br" sound to it.

Exile is correct.

But clearly the end of one is Bacon, Bacon, Bacon and Haaaam. Bono likes pork.

I couldn't care less in all honesty. Sometimes is U2's finest ballad and it is, by far, the most emotional song on this list. It probably won't go through to the next round, which doesn't surprise me with the people on this forum  ;D

P.S. did I see you that you picked SYCMIOYO? I thought you were rather uninspired by the Bomb tunes. 

What? NO! I hate that song.

I picked Streets and Crazy Tonight.

I'm coming to think that you hate every deep emotional song that isn't upbeat...

Clearly you haven't paid attention to my favourite songs. ;)

Cedars Of Lebanon
Moment Of Surrender
One Step Closer
Grace
Stay
Dirty Day
Tomorrow



Stay acoustic?

It seems all us 'cool kids' are voting Acrobat & Velvet Dress.  8)

Must be why Streets has almost as many as both combined. ;)

Depends, have you measured your ego? There are strict minimum standards before you're allowed in the Cool Club. Try as I might, I just can't quite scrape in. :P

Streets and MLK, sue me. I vote for my favorites

Agreed. Screw this 'tactical voting' crap, may the favourite song win.

Invitations are so clinical and modern. Attendance at this club is more intuitive: we all just somehow know where to be and when to be there.

Streets and SYCMIOYO

Unless someone else votes in the next 45 minutes, it looks like your vote's put SYCMIOYO into the next round.

At least it saves us doing another tiebreaker.

Good to see Crazy Tonight with an early exit.  There is a little justice in the world.
