Don't you mean we broke Batman's back? Because that's what the song is called. Batman.

A tie between Gone and Ultraviolet would be good here. I'm gonna have to vote for Gone. I just like Ultraviolet a tiny bit more.

The other five songs are all stellar. Good job, Hive. The best five move on. Does it really matter if precious little Moment of Surrender went out one round earlier than three voters wanted it to?

Can we please get rid of UV now?

Gone is one of U2's top ten songs.

"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

While I don't hate on Lemon as much as I used to (it would still be better if it wasn't falsetto-crazy, and the increased full voice Bono singing is what makes the live version of the song better), but it's still not as good as the other great songs here.

I'm glad that Stay hasn't been ruined by the weak-as-shit live versions they've been trotting out in recent years.

Voting for Baseball, which I like slightly less than Judas.

The Fly, Until The End Of The World and Stay are fantastic songs! So glad they have 0 votes so far.

 
Did I speak too soon?

I still don't get how Gone = Baseball but I'll play along too...



Hope Citrus, Apocalypse, It's No Secret, Berlin and Suit of Lights go through.
