So nobody voted to break the tie, and as a result both She's A Mystery To Me and Summer Rain are gone. A shame that She's A Mystery had to go, I think it could've lasted a few more rounds.

We're inside the top 20 now, people, 19 songs left!

I voted for Invisible.

In the context of launching a big return single in 2014, it feels quite pedestrian. Unbecoming for one of the greatest rock bands of all-time.

It makes me feel nostalgic for all the other songs on the list. They probably spent 2 months in the studio over-thinking the track and watering it down.

On the contrary, 4 energized guys in their early 20s took maybe a day to craft 'A Celebration' which helped them build confidence heading into the War sessions.

Voted for "A Celebration", and I stand by that decision. However, I've always, in my mind (as well as in my iTunes), included it as track 12 on October. But I also never had much love for "Salome".

I'm disappointed She's a Mystery to Me is gone but I figured it would disappear soon anyway. It had a good run. I'm also reasonably fond of Summer Rain.

Can't believe A Celebration is now on the chopping block while Sweetest Thing, Invisible, and Crystal Ballroom are still here. Invisible looks like best shot out of those three to eliminate, so I've given it my vote.

What are you people doing. A Celebration is definitely in the top ten of songs left.

I like the song a lot but I can't agree with that. There's probably only a few tracks left that I'll vote for before I start voting for A Celebration(unless I need to vote strategically, which I probably will).

For now though, I'm doing my part to try to save it by voting for Invisible.

This is my top ten of what's left, in rough order:

1. 11 O'Clock Tick Tock
2. Spanish Eyes
3. Lady With the Spinning Head
4. Love Comes Tumbling
5. HMTMKMKM
6. Electrical Storm
7. Luminous Times
8. A Celebration
9. The Ground Beneath Her Feet
10. The Three Sunrises

Most of the rest I won't be sad to see go.

11 O Clock Tick Tock is so historic it belongs in the U2 museum.

I think HMTMKMKM will win

See, we're not that far apart. We have six tracks in common in our top tens. But for me, instead of Spanish Eyes, Electrical Storm, A Celebration, and The Three Sunrises, I have Walk To The Water, Sweetest Thing(it's a perfect pop song, I don't care what you say ), Stateless, and then the last spot is a tie between Mercy and The Crystal Ballroom.

Probably.

But it's really hard to dismiss any of the UF/JT b-sides left.
