OOTS must perish.

Crumbs must not.

My feelings on this matter are one divided by your feelings on this matter.

But it's OOTS. OOTS. U2 songs don't really get much worse than that.

I'm not sure I've ever been more certain that a song needs to go than I do for OOTS right now.

I like OOTS too-
I'll go Miracle Drug this time. I think I like Crumbs just a bit more.

I love OOTS! I love the video for that song. I saw it for the first time just a few months back. I spent last summer rediscovering that song playing it (the song and the video) over and over. It's really very beautiful. I found at least three different versions of the video. And then there's the Live From Milan version. The live strings added a classy, elegant touch.

So...it's still Crumbs for me.

Original of the Species is actually one of the better songs on this record.

Crumbs is by far one of the worst.

Making the current voting results completely unsurprising.
