Really? I struggle to think of a worse Bono vocal performance in studio.

No just kidding.

Seriously, it sounds like he's having fun. It's effortless. I just like it a lot.

IT'S GOT SOUL.

Just skip a few tracks on the same cd until you get to Grace and you'll find one.

That vocal used to bug me a lot! I don't care about it so much anymore.

The thing I found specifically funny is that he says "she's mine" and then later that he has known her since she was in a pram. WTF? lol. Could you say "she's mine" about somebody your daughter's age?

Someone mentioned lyrics, and indeed, it was the lyrics to IALW that caused me to change my vote to New York. Love them! "A man takes a rocket ship into the skies He lives on a star that's dying in the night And follows in the trail, the scatter of light..." beautiful! Actually, it was Axver's comments about how weak the NY lyrics are that caused me to take a second look at both songs. So thanks Axver!!!

And really, vote changing, including last minute vote changing, goes on here all the time, as does strategic voting. I'm not sure what the big deal is. Perhaps, as others have suggested, vote changing should only be allowed for mistakes in voting, and even then within a certain period of time. I do find it somewhat ironic that some of the same people who criticised me before for not voting now don't like the way I'm doing so. Sigh. You can't please everyone.

Anyway, I thought Elevation was good enough to stay a while longer, what difference does it make? As I look at the voting as it stands right now, almost 50% of those voting want Elevation to stay and are voting for something else.

Remember, the minute we stop believing in democracy is the minute we lose it. Only a Sith deals in absolutes.

To call this voting system a democracy is... rather interesting.

Suck in a moment, again.


Just realised that only two songs go through here. Why are we even having this round then? it's painfully obvious that those two will be BD and Kite.

Oh, and COBL04, I'd like to extend a personal apology to you. I had no idea how strongly you felt about eliminating Elevation or I might not have changed my vote. I know you've repeatedly called EYKIW a "cesspool", but to subject everyone to profanity and personal insults, in the first post of the thread, clearly shows the depth of your feeling. Indeed, had I known you had so little control over your own behavior, and had such a limited vocabulary in which to voice disagreement and express yourself, I might have reconsidered. In the future, I'll try to keep your emotional state in mind when voting.

Again, my deepest apologies. I only hope you didn't break your keyboard, or a finger, in your exuberant rush to vote for Elevation once again. Very soon, I'm sure, you won't have to deal with seeing Elevation as an option on your screen. And by way of making amends, I'm voting for "the song which must not be named".

This one's for you, COBL. Get better.

Haha. Thanks Nick. Glad to see it's on the way out.

I love the bridge in In a Little While, but the fact it currently has the same amount of votes as When I Look at the World is an absolute fucking disgrace and a blight on the cesspool that this forum is.

If WILATW had been played on the last tour, it would have 0 votes right now. The fact that IALW has 7 despite its 360 flogging is a testament to how weak the song is.
