Seeing LWTSH jump out to an early lead has inspired me to vote early for TGBHF. LWTSH is just better.

So we've got one of the most sublime songs U2 ever made, their best dance song, one of their most balls to the wall rock songs, and...

Oh, The Ground Beneath Her Feet? A good song indeed, but not even close to equalling the greatness of the other three.

Seriously people there's only one option here.

I agree with you. I hope more people join us in this cause.

I've had to make a similar decision like this before relating to a current girlfriend and an ex who wanted back.

No matter the option I was going to regret having to even make a decision. I had to go for Love Comes Tumbling here - I have an irrational soft spot for The Ground Beneath Her Feet.

The Ground Beneath Her Feet. But all these songs are great.

Huh, HMTMKMKM the only one with no votes so far this round.

If TGBHF goes, it will be my next target.

TGBHF is such an outlier, like nothing else in their discography. And it's fantastic. The only legitimate reason for voting it off to me is because Bono didn't write the lyrics.

But as a track; the instrumentation, the production, the singing, I think it's the best thing left.

I'm also surprised Axver isn't still crying in a bathtub over 11 O'Clock's dismissal.

I love the initial notes. Has a tropical island vibe, and then the ambience morphs beautifully. Saw it live in concert, but it was acoustic. (I hate acoustic sets in rock concerts)
