Yes. That is the problem with this whole voting system! I wish people would just vote off THEIR personal least favourite song and not gang vote simply to counter-balance the song that seems to be getting the most votes, hence changing the natural outcome of the vote.

Slightly, very slightly. But I have such a hard time voting against One.

Yeah I agree. People bandwagon way too quickly. I love every song still on the list so it's hard to vote. Will Ultraviolet(which I love), MOFO,, or Gone seriously outlast One? One is one of the most definitive, emotional, meaningful, acclaimed songs U2 has ever written.

I will not vote against Lemon.
I will not vote against One.
It is a terrible thing that they are the two dying. Two of U2's best.

Mofo, great as it is, is the weakest here.

I held my nose and voted for One to save Lemon, but it didn't feel good to vote against One. I love One, but I also feel that Lemon, as one of U2's most avante-garde-ish pieces this side of Passengers, is not really appreciated enough. I hope it finds its way back into the live set one of these days.

I won't be mad if One wins though.

Voting for Mofo. Weakest here in my opinion.

I wouldn't be bandwagoning anyone. I truly think One is the weakest song here. And that it's very, very overrated.

If ever there was a chance to get rid of One, now is it.

Grr. One.

Whatever, it's not like it'd make it very far anyway.

I don't think One is U2's holy grail by a long stretch. The notion that Ultraviolet, Gone, Stay and whatnot are better though .,.
One would need to be quite obtuse.

Oh man, it's going to be sweet if all three Zooropa tracks make it.

But I refuse to vote for One.
