Best Song Survivor: 2000s Quarterfinal, Round Five

The Ground Beneath Her Feet was knocked off of its feet in the last round, which resulted in it tripping and being removed from this contest. Five songs remain competing for four slots in the 1990s/2000s semifinal; this is the last round of the 2000s quarterfinal. You have twenty-four hours to vote against your least favorite song. For anyone just joining us, rules may be found here.

Ugh, I'm not that enthusiastic about any of these going through to the next round of finals. Well I suppose I am enthusiastic about NLOTH to an extent, but TGBHF was the last song left that I was really passionate about.

Will vote either Kite or MOS this round. Not fussed which of them perishes.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Lesson 101 on how to poop up a perfectly decent song: construe a completely unnecessary, asinine outro referencing hip hop, big cars and new media

hmm, now I'm really not sure what to vote for..I'm a bit indifferent towards Kite, COBL and BD. As long as MOS and NLOTH go through I'm fine..

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

Well, Beautiful Day and MOS made it, so that's good.

Kite and COBL are both tracks with decent studio versions and AWESOME live versions. I'll go with COBL because a tie would be amusing.

Like U2 did when they introduced us to the first notes of Beautiful Day, Interference has left behind GBHF, a transitional song for U2 and one of their worst of the 00's, and now we're left with what is clearly their best, MOS, and some other very strong tracks.

Obviously MOS should prevail, but it's very difficult to choose among these others, they're all quite good. It's not that they can't be ranked, but there's no joy in voting off a song you really like just because you like another slightly more.

Hmmmm. Difficult choice. I'll may just look at how others are voting and vote with the individual whose opinion I respect most.

COBL. I don't dislike the song one bit, but it just sounds a little forced. I remember hearing it for the first time and being very turned off by the "oh. you. look. so. beautiful..." part. It took me a long time to get past that hunk of cheese. On the other hand, Kite to me feels much more organic.

COBL was the third U2 song that I heard (consciously knowing that it was U2), but the first that I really loved. I still think that it's a fantastic song, and it will always be special to me partially because it really made me a U2 fan.

Kite's time has come once again...

There's also no way that No Line on the Horizon should outlast City of Blinding Lights. I enjoy the former, but the latter is truly a classic U2 song.
