Voting for Viva Davidoff as the worst U2 song is like saying you'd rather hear Stand Up Comedy than nothing. Which is ludicrous.

Vote for your favorite song.

Done.

No game.

Wax nostalgic about your favorite song. The more waxing the better.
That'd be a boring competition.

Yeah, Passengers and the b-sides tend to get fucked over no matter how we do Survivor - best, worst, this format or that. Apart from the likes of HMTMKMKM and Electrical Storm, even the big ones are screwed soon as the finals begin. Which is a shame, because as any thread discussing b-sides quickly establishes, there are some real gems that a lot of Interferencers feel strongly about.

(This makes me wonder if there's much point in doing The Cure's non-album tracks. I think I'm a pretty decent Cure fan yet I know very few of their non-album songs.)

yeah, that's what i'd suggest too to whoever would do it. otherwise you're just setting it up for the same outcome.

exactly. i mean i'm one of the few who likes stand up comedy, but come on. we all have some song that we think is just appalling. i'd be willing to bet 99% of interference would think viva davidoff is not it.

Like Khan said, I think the Cure may be one of the only bands where a non-album song has a real shot at winning the whole thing (Charlotte Sometimes).

I'm beginning to debate against doing Join the Dots, but I'm definitely still doing Japanese Whispers.

That's fair. I know far less than you.

Since this is my rodeo, I'm pretty much cheating and letting three songs go through. I wonder what they could possibly be!

True, I definitely want to see Charlotte Sometimes in the final. Beyond that, though? None of the other non-album tracks I know are anything I feel strongly enough about to vote for. I haven't listened to that many, to be fair, but how many people here have?
