Wow, that was tough. I am surprised One is leading here. I went with WOWY though it was a difficult choice for me. One is just too powerful a song to me.

I can't vote.  I love these songs too much live

I know.  It is my belief that a U2 show is not a U2 show without With or Without You and One in the set but I voted for One SOLELY on the fact that WOWY is higher on my favorite songs list

I love them both and would REALLY miss either in my show. But for me, while I recognise that objectively, One is a better song, I personally prefer WOWY. So One would have to go!

Both great songs, ad both songs that are concert-staples, so it's a tough pick, but I choose One, only because i like WOWY a little better as a live performance.
WOWY hasnt gotten quite as much concert play as One either.

I'd rather them leave out One. I enjoy both greatly, and though One is the superior song lyrically, as Ledbetter said WOWY is the better live performance. It just soars. :)

WOWY. I didn't really like Bono's performance of it at my 360 concert.

I love both songs, but to me One is the better song, and I like One more.

So bye bye WOWY.

I could live with One being canned assuming Bono stops hanging off the steering wheel!  ;D

I LOVE the recorded versions, but Bono cant sing them as well anymore live.

Leave them both in the show though. they make great bathroom breaks  :D
