I voted for Zep. Yeah, Stairway, Whole 'Lotta Love and Kashmir might threaten to take the whole thing, but then A Day In The Life always threatened to take Beatles from the beginning too. It was still a lot of fun though.

Radiohead survivor just sounds like it could get really ugly!

Yeah, DaveC did the original Best U2 Song Survivor, then I did a few. I can't remember all of them, but I definitely recall Best Album and Best Single.

I've thought it might be interesting to do a "Rest Of" U2 Song Survivor. Cut anything on the Best Ofs and U2:18 and see what comes out the top. It eliminates almost all of the predictable fodder like One, Bad, and Streets. It wouldn't just be a "best non-singles" sort of affair either, as popular non-singles on the Best Ofs would be gone while songs like In God's Country would stay in contention.

That one flew right over your head. The obvious answer is Zooropa.

Unless, of course, you count the Zooropa promo as a single, in which case I'll just go over to the corner and hide.

Damn, you might be right.

No, wait - Please.

No...

Crap, this would be tough.

That's why I don't wan Led Sep survivor.

Radiohead or REM all the way....

And I'd be hapy to run Ginblossoms or Travis survivor if anyone would be up for it.

I'll have to see if we have that one, and then steal it away from hubby. If I could only get the Springsteen CD out of the CD player. Don't worry darlin', now baby don't you fret. We're livin' in the future and none of this happened yet.

Live At Leeds deluxe is the best. The version of Tommy on there makes the original obsolete. Plus, that amazing version of Quick One.

Bruce is awesome, but I'm not sure how long such a tournament would take, and I'm pretty sure votes would dwindle down once we got to Human Touch, Ghost Of Tom Joad, et al.

I really don't know Springsteen's catalog much at all
I know less about Radiohead, as I'm not a fan.

Again, I'll have to see what WHO CDs are hiding in the closet
