Best Song Survivor: Achtung Baby Round One

After a contentious fight with New Year's Day, A Sort of Homecoming was defeated in the last part of the 1980s semifinal round. That means that The Unforgettable Fire, Where the Streets Have No Name, New Year's Day, Bad, and With or Without You shall be the representatives of the 1980s in the final round. We now move on to the 1990s, starting with Achtung Baby. Achtung Baby has twelve songs, and four of them will advance to the 1990s quarterfinal round. 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.

One. I'm sure it's a wasted vote, but it's always been my least favorite song on the album. Wish they would have released the Baby version instead.

This is a nightmare round for me. The following songs I wish to advance:

Even Better Than the Real Thing
One
Until the End of the World
Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
The Fly
Mysterious Ways
Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
Love Is Blindness

I think my top four are Ultraviolet, One, Until the End of the World and either LIB or Real Thing... but it's so hard...

TTTYAATW is my least favorite on Achtung Baby, but I love all of Achtung Baby, so there's that.

There are no bad songs on this album. At all. It's a matter of which songs are less exceptional than others. I'll do whatever it takes to protect The Fly. I commit my allegiance to The Fly.

This is an album where I know I'll be disappointed with the songs that wind up advancing. The four I'd choose would be Acrobat, Ultraviolet, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, and then depending on the day either The Fly or Until The End Of The World.

I'd have to lend my vote to Acrobat this round, and others that I may vote for could be One and Ultraviolet and most definitely TTTYAATW. The first two being a little overrated.

Word. I'm with you there.

Also here to protect Mysterious Ways and Until the End of the World, but the Fly comes first.

lol... I think The Fly will make my top 3 for sure, so I'll take it that far for sure!

I voted for Acrobat, but as you said, there are no bad songs on this album. I imagine that one will make it to further rounds anyway due to the devotion for it on here.

Got to be Arms Around the World in this round. It's the only one that doesn't serve any real purpose in the scope of the album - almost as though it doesn't belong.

jeesus i really can't kick one out - i thought off the top of my head it would be between EBBTRT and So Cruel, but just started listening to them both, and i can't do without any of them...

it's a perfect album, no duds... (unlike the rest of them )

And This.

Although I also have One on a pretty high pedestal so I better not have to ever decide between the 2.

So Cruel is the only song here I consider to be somewhat average.
