Best Song Survivor: Achtung Baby Round Two

Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around the World was sent drunkenly stumbling out of our competition in the last round. That leaves eleven songs from Achtung Baby vying for four slots in 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.

okay, I have no idea. I love these songs, all of them. So much. Maybe Zoostation or EBTTRT is a weaker track than the rest?

While I have grown sick and tired of One, I cannot yet vote for it. Some part of me remembers how epic and awesome that song was upon the album's release.

I will instead vote for a song I probably should like, but, never really have taken to:

Love Is Blindness.

Click Clack.

I have no idea, so I put AB on shuffle and decided whatever came up I would vote for. Then decided the second song that came up I would vote for. Nope, maybe the third. I then went through the whole album. So that didn't work.

I'm randomly picking Acrobat. If nothing else, I'll vote alphabetically.

Gotta go for Horses. The album mix is just a little too bombastic for my tastes. Still a stellar song, but Lanois dropped the ball at the mixing desk.

This was very hard, but I went with my gut. Sorry So Cruel.

So Cruel. Some decent lyrics can't save it from sounding like shit.

So Cruel for me as well. It functions wonderfully within the scope of the album, but as a stand-alone track I'm not sure it is up to par with what remains.
