Springsteen Survivor - The Rising - Round 1?

Please vote for your LEAST favorite.

Ok, since The Rising, is the last Tier 1 album, we're going to go back to round by round voting. Let's see how this goes.

The results of The Ghost of Tom Joad leave tier 3 as:
Youngstown (7 votes)
The Ghost of Tom Joad (6 votes)

If I Should Fall Behind
Better Days
Living Proof Human Touch
Soul Driver

The Tier 2 Semi-final is :
Tunnel of Love
Brilliant Disguise
Valentine's Day Nebraska
Atlantic City
Johnny 99
Reason to Believe The Ties that Bind
Sherry Darling
Two Hearts
Independence Day
The River
Cadillac Ranch
Lost in the Flood
For You
Spirit in the Night
It's Hard to Be A Saint in the City

The Tier 1 Semi is:
Born in the U.S.A.
Downbound Train
I'm on Fire
Dancing in the Dark Badlands
Candy's Room
Promised Land
Darkness on the Edge of Town
Thunder Road
Backstreets
Born to Run
She's the One
Jungleland
4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)
Incident on 57th Street
Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)
New York City Serenade

The Rising will have 4 songs move on to the Tier 1 semi-final. Question, who wants to move on to Devils and Dust after this, who wants to run the Tier 1 semi-final?

So many choices...The Fuse? Further On (Up the Road)? Skin to Skin? Waiting on a Sunny Day? I mean, this is a great album, but it could've done without a couple songs lol.

Songs I want to go through:
Worlds Apart (Not gonna happen)
Lonesome Day
The Rising
Nothing Man

I'm thinkin either Into The Fire or The Fuse.

Into The Fire, for me, is the least tolerable of the big, 9/11-centric songs on the album. And I think The Fuse might be kinda shitty, right?

I really hate Mary's Place. I don't care how many people tell me "oh, you have to see it live." I hate it.

I was having the "see it live" thought. I'm trying to separate that from the album version and vote for the album version. Doing that makes me very much want to vote for "Mary's Place" very soon.

Mary's Place

A lame attempt at recreating Rosalita.

Finally a Springsteen album that I have a copy of.

I need to listen to that mid section again before I decide.

I guess Countin' On A Miracle. I like Fuse, Further On, Mary's Place etc. more.

Oooh I've finally been around for a round 1! I'm voting for The Fuse because it's horrible. Skin to Skin is totally getting the axe next.

Skin to Skin is the one I'm voting for next. I'm bummed to see multiple votes for The Fuse - I think that one's really good.
