Ultraviolet.  WOWY is possibly the better song but I have a stronger connection to Ultraviolet.

Hmm...do you mean you tactically voted for UV?  Or you suspect that others have?  I don't think this is a going to be a tactical match; UV won the atU2 poll for favorite AB song and enjoyed a great resurgence in popularity for its 306 appearances.

UV. The reason is, while both are excellent relationship tunes, WOWY's epic status has been eroded by Bono's  steady negligence to show interest in its live performances over the last fifteen years.

He didn't do a perfect job at rekindling UV on 360, but it was such an exciting comeback to be enough to breathe some fresh life into my interest in the band for a while.

Ultraviolet by a nosehair.

WOWY will always been loved by the majority of fans, and I always love the studio and live version up until Elevation ended, which is the last time I think the song has a sense of emotion still being sung in it. Since then, the performances of it seem cashed in to me, as if they only keep it around for the value of the song itself. A shame, because it is such a beautiful song.

Ultraviolet, while I do find it overrated to a sense, still has a brilliant sound which really sounds like putting Achtung Baby and Joshua Tree together. I always loved the rawness in the lyrics and soaring feeling of the song, and live it has reflected that in all the ZooTv versions. It's reincarnation on 360 still showed that any song in the U2 catalog can still be brought back with a passion, as the song was continually a highlight of shows throughout the tour.

WOWY is a gem, but it's too popular and hence the reason why it gets eliminated.

You do know though that if The Fly wins the other semifinal, Lady With The Spinning Head/Wake Up Dead Man wins the final, don't you?
