Just once, I'd like to see this not the case. Think you better start another Survivor and make this happen, Ax.


Nah, jokes. Thanks for all this, you always do a bang-up job!

All those songs are in my top 20.

I like the results. I especially like that Until The End of The World ranked so high.

No Lemon however....

for the most part a good list, though magnificent at #5 is an absolute joke.

a few of the classics deserve a place there, however.

Thanks for the hard work Axver.

I like the fact that TUF made the top ten, I'm also a bit surprised that some seem to share my appreciation of Being Born and Zooropa

Could someone explain the high marks for Kite or ASOH?
Did Pride and Bullet the Blue Sky get snubbed because of live overexposure?

The absence of Do You Feel Loved and Stateless still baffles me and the R&H rankings (AIWIY #17 Heartland #29) why Desire or God.Pt2 didn't make it....

Lastly, is Gloria really the best thing from October? With Acrobat and TUF scoring so high, I would've thought that perhaps Tomorrow could've gotten in.

Totally agree, though I like the song well enough.

Great polls, thanks for the effort Axver. Pretty decent top 30.

I love how One is not in this list. As it should be.

Well, I won't waste time posting a new thread for this result.

Best of the Worst Survivor is done and dusted. Who is worse, Johnny Swallow or Ronnie Drew? Well, in a very clear decision, The Ballad Of Ronnie Drew has been voted as the worst U2 song! Out of 38 votes, J. Swallow received 31, versus only 7 for the Ballad.

Thanks everyone ... it actually feels really weird now, not starting a new Survivor round each day.
