Best Song Survivor: 1990s Miscellaneous

Do You Feel Loved felt little love last round. It was eliminated, leaving Mofo, Gone, and Please to represent Pop in the 1990s quarterfinal round.

Now it is time for the 1990s non-album song round. Like previous non-album song rounds, this round works a little differently. Listed are a bunch of 1990s non-album songs. Choose your favorite songs. I would recommend no more than five, but really, it's up to you. The more songs you vote for, the more diluted each vote will be in relative influence. However, the fewer songs you vote for, the less chance you have to advance some songs that you may very well like, even if they're not your favorites. So strategize as you wish. Only the two HIGHEST ranked songs in this round will advance to quarterfinals. Remember that you are voting for your FAVORITE songs here, in a change from how previous rounds operated. This poll will close in 24 hours.

I'm happy to see the "new" ones from the AB reissue here. I think the lyrics to Oh Berlin are fairly bad, but man, I really really love the music.

They quote Rilke, what's not to love?

It's pretty obvious what two tracks are going through, and I did vote for those two, along with the Willie Nelson version of Slow Dancing, North and South of the River, and Salome.

It's a shame it wasn't on the 90s B-Sides disc. I'm hoping for a Pop re-release with all the B-Sides on a single disc.

Hold Me Thrill Me is one of their most enjoyable songs ever!

I'm surprised at the lack of love for Sweetest Thing. One of my favourite U2 pop songs.

But this couldn't be closer to the mark:

It really, really is. Would've made a fantastic addition to Pop, though as far as I remember it was only finished during the Popmart tour. Sinead O'Connor is just great, the lyrics are great, and Howie B's treatments are great. The Skysplitter Dub that he did is brilliant too.

I like songs with allusions in the lyrics, but it doesn't make the lyrics automatically good.

It probably scored fairly high in the miscellaneous 80s round; a lot of people greatly prefer that version.

Quite a few I would've voted for (especially from the Achtung demos), but I tried to limit it to the 5 recommended. I figured Blow Your House Down and Heaven & Hell were the most interesting out of the batch. At least at the moment anyway.
