Sad that Bass Trap was the first to go. I'm sure Axver is fuming.

Let's try to get participation up, folks, the first round didn't do as well as most of the preliminary rounds!

Bass Trap is lovely. Sad it's gone so soon.
Walk to the Water for me, until it's gone.

Walk to the Water as well until its gone. It's the sloppiest of the tracks out there. Has a couple interesting moments, but that's my vote.

Can't believe you heathens voted out one of the prettiest and most relaxing songs U2 have ever recorded.

Anyway, Heartbreak Hotel, of course.

Understand. I would have protected 'Deep In the Heart' till the final 5 of this list. But that didn't make it this far.

Disappearing Act til it fucks off. Had no idea it was popular to the point where not only does it make it to the final, it's outlasting Bass Trap?? Very sad to see it go.

Voting to safe the gorgeous Walk to the Water and excellent Disappearing Act. Both songs are splendid.

A Room at the Heartbreak Hotel is skippable and not really my kind of thing with the backing vocals. This may help save the other two.

Seriously, I'm baffled by this too. I thought there was general agreement that the songs U2 touched up for the remasters were inferior to anything completed in the actual era. Why you would listen to Disappearing Act with Shithouse Bono on vocals when you can listen to a song with UF Bono singing 100x better is beyond me.

Disappearing Act's voters need to do! a! dis! uh! peer! ing! act!

Because it's somewhat boring and not one of the better JT era b-sides?

WTTW takes a while to get going, and it's mostly atmospheric build-up, but to me they pay-off - 'let me love you/let me love you/leeeeeeeeeeet meeeeeeee' - is executed well enough to make it worth it. Impassioned and soulful.

Ranking of JT b-sides:

1. Luminous Times
2. Sweetest Thing
3. Walk To The Water
4. Deep In The Heart
5. Spanish Eyes
6. Silver And Gold
7. Race Against Time

5&6 might be reversed.

Disappearing Act won't last too long. Starts with an interesting UF-Era vibe. But the vocals do become grating on repeat listens.

Yeah I'm going to have to disagree with that strongly:

1. Spanish Eyes
2. Luminous Times
...
... plenty of daylight ...
...
3. Silver and Gold
4. Deep in the Heart
5. Race Against Time
...
6. Walk to the Water
...
...
...
...
...
... do I have something else to do? ...
...
7. Sweetest Thing

1 and 2 are legitimate U2 classics, and the order of 3-5 is somewhat arbitrary. But no doubt in my mind which two are the era's weakest.
