I doubt it will be leaving anytime soon, but I'm going with Luminous Times. Always thought it was quite overrated and never did much for me.

Two Shots, again.

Gutted that Alex Descends is gone. One of U2's most evocative tracks.

I voted for Alex and felt awful doing it. Let's be honest, this survivor is going to get pretty ugly!

Nah, it's not going to hurt to vote for any of these: Two Shots, Sweetest Thing, Invisible, The Crystal Ballroom, Salome, Holy Joe, Walk to the Water.

I can't find the words for how much I disagree with this. I mean, I won't mind Invisible and Salome going, but the rest are all great.

I love Salome and Holy Joe. They're glammy and fun, very unique for the band. The rest I won't miss overly much.

I voted for Fast Cars because I really don't want it to be North and South or Two Shots.

Salome is my favorite b-side.

Invisible is an example of them trying too hard and it coming out flat. Deserves some hate for being the milquetoast lead horse out of the gate in 2014 and being garbage live on tour.

It's not terrible. But I can foresee myself voting for it. #SaveSalome

Read your quote. Then checked the vote tally. Username: Salome voted for Holy Joe. Felt spooky for a moment.

Checking in with my daily vote for WTTW. I considered voting for Fast Cars to save Two Shots, but I like Fast Cars too much. Will be sad to see both join Alex in the discard pile- great tunes, all of them.

I hereby grant Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad a stay of execution with my vote for Fast Cars. Fast Cars is good(though I prefer Xanax And Wine), but I had to save Two Shots.
