Neat, it's a tie. I'm glad that Miracle Drug survived till the top 3, I really am. For me Vertigo can go next round, but I know it won't. Happy MD got as far as it got. Damn. Dat solo.

And Edge on lead vocals is always a bonus, even if it's just the bridge.

Is it a masterpiece of a song in the same vein as Bad or Streets or anything like that? No, definitely not, but it's a perfect song for what they were aiming for.
Yup. You hit the nail on the head.

I think some of the people who talk shit about it secretly like it.

And those who don't like it; it's because everyone else likes it maaaaaaaaaaannn!

But out of consideration to those who want to see both go now and help put Bomb out of its misery, I'm voting with ten minutes to spare (had no idea it was so close!), so someone can to either vote, or change their vote, to bring it back to a tie.

Don't say I never did anything nice for The Hive.

Just for you Dig, I'll vote in round 8 now, and promise not to change my vote.

A Man and a Woman made it this far. That's ridiculous. Shut the forum down.

Haha, I'm not angry at the manner in which you voted, I disagree with the song that you voted against! But it's all good.

Not sure whether to vote off Boots or SUC(k) during the next round.

I can only speak for myself, but I don't think there's a prevalent hipster attitude of "Vertigo is popular, so I'll buy myself a ticket on the hate train." BD is arguably more popular than Vertigo, and I think it's a great song. You'll never hear me bashing it. Vertigo (and COBL) are the best two songs on the album almost by default (the other songs are mostly safe, foot-tapping unimaginative dreck). But I don't secretly like Vertigo. I don't secretly like any song.
