After a deciding vote, "My Hometown" was eliminated.

This is the final round of the BITUSA rounds, sorry it started so late, I should've mentioned long ago that I don't get home til 9 on Thursdays.

As much as I don't want to do it, No Surrender for me as well.

I know. But it's a fun song, and it turned into a great guitar blast a few tours ago.

I know I'd love the song if it wasn't destroyed by '80s production values. I don't know how an entire decade can sound more dated than the one before it, but that's the '80s for you.

I know. And the song was crappy even in the 80s, but the time I heard it with all those guitars changed it for me.

Dancing In The Dark has been a blast live, and I really don't mind the original version.

But the other four left are superior.

Never mind the production values (which are as laughably dated as YLB makes them out to be), Dancing In The Dark is a better song than No Surrender. Dancing may just be a ridiculous feelgood shout-a-long, but No Surrender is hardly poetry itself (not much of BITUSA qualifies as such). I know I had No Surrender in my top 4, but after hearing a live version of Dancing today...it's just a really fucking good song. Great melody.

Ashley was tired

I'm going to have to start TOL now, or tomorrow, cause I'm going to a concert tonight.
