Best Song Survivor: Achtung Baby Round Five

After two vote changes, Love Is Blindness still fell to Mysterious Ways... but by the smallest of margins, one vote. Now eight songs remain, vying for four slots in quarterfinals, as the contest intensifies. This seems to be possibly the most difficult and contentious set of rounds so far. You have 24 hours to vote for your least favorite song, the next song to be eliminated from this contest. For anyone just joining us, rules may be found here.

Grumble...grumble. Voting for Mysterious Ways as I'm angry it beat Love is Blindness.

You may be the real thing (baby), but it's time to go.

The Fly is the weakest song of the bunch IMO. I suppose I'm the only one who feels this way though :P

Zoo Stay-Shun. (That's the way I say it when I sing it.) I've started liking it recently more than I did before... but not enough to not vote for it.

Still voting for EBTTRT. I love that guitar intro to Zoo Station. "I'm ready to say I'm glad to be alive." It's the perfect opener for the album. Mysterious Ways is a classic for me. Love is Blindness is the perfect closer. Sad to see it go.

Zoo Station. Awesome way to kick off Achtung Baby, not good enough to stay around.

I say "stay-shin" when I talk. When I sing it's more like "Zoo stay-shuuuuuuuuunnn," and for whatever reason I always want to write the title phoenetically.
