I just wanted to say that it's kind of amazing that a track that was never officially released, that we only have a leaked, un-mastered version of, finished as the 9th best non-album track of their career. I know we're only a couple dozen people here, but still. Should tell the band something.

Should tell Larry to eat a bag of dicks for vetoing it and Fast Cars off the album.

Spanish Eyes, Luminous Times and The Three Sunrises are the weak links here. What remains would be a perfectly respectable top 5.

It's been awhile since I had to think about what to vote for. I think I'll have to go with Luminous Times even though I really love it. Sometimes I wonder what it could have been if they'd saved it, let it marinate and then put it next to Heartland on Rattle & Hum.

Either that or at least given it a go on Lovetown!

Was "stuck" with only The Best Of 80-90/B-Sides to listen to while housesitting the other week and loved it, definitely appreciate Luminous Times a lot more these days, wouldn't have been rooting for it to stay in a few years ago.

Agreed with what namckuR said about Spanish Eyes in the last thread

That definitely grates on me these days and was very aware of it when it came on in the car with my girlfriend the other day

I've voted early for Spanish Eyes, as it seems Luminous Times might be in danger and I felt I had to help protect it.

I fucking adore Luminous Times, but we've reached that point in the tournament. In a pure ranking I would put The Three Sunrises and TGBHF below it, but you lunatics are going after Spanish Eyes, the second-best song here, and I'll do what I can to oppose that.

Luminous Times is far more soulful than Spanish Eyes. Spanish Eyes is a great fun, but Luminous Times is art.
