Rooting for Love Comes Tumbling, so have to go with LWTSH

By the way, premature thanks for putting this all together. It was enjoyable.

If your objective is to save Love Comes Tumbling, why not go for HMTMKMKM?

The second half of the Extended Dance Mix of LWTSH is so good.

But so is HMTMKMKM.

This is really hard now.

Lady With The Spinning Head. Although I do ageee that the extended version is amazing. All of the songs left easily should have made it onto their respective albums (except Hold Me should have gone on Pop).

HMTMKMKM has remained mostly untouched, so banking on it to save Love Comes Tumbling seems like a bad idea. Even so, it's a toss up with it and LWTSH for me. Both great songs.

Oh this decision is awfully hard. I think I'll go HMTMKMKM but I feel the need to listen to each song first.

LWTSH

LCT and HMTMKMKM are better stand alone tracks and don't feel like a B-side.

Damn, why did they leave LCT off UF?

Well, looks like Love Comes Tumbling is now the most overrated song by The 2!

It's not beating Batman, so y'all should just admit defeat now.

Yeah LCT slid through. It's a pretty song that didn't elicit strong feelings of dislike. More a reflection of the competition format than 'possibly' song quality.

Sweetest Thing (single mix) would have been my number 2, but it didn't survive.

Well, it's a wasted vote by the looks, but after listening to all three, it's got to be HMTMKMKM. Not even the best live version of it - 31 July 1997, Mannheim - can top how sublime Love Comes Tumbling is, or how Lady With the Spinning Head's Extended Dance Mix is easily one of the band's finest moments. I really don't know how a song as mediocre as Ultra Violet came from it, though The Fly is certainly blessed to have received the guitar solo.

Would be amazing if Loves Come Tumbling could make the final.

If they had replaced Indian Summer Sky with Love Comes Tumbling, TUF would have been my favorite U2 album. Achtung Baby still tops it now.

If Lady With The Spinning Head is eliminated, I'm finally going to vote for Love Comes Tumbling.
