Best Song Survivor: ATYCLB, Round Five

After an eleventh-hour vote change in the last round, New York gained one vote more than Elevation. It was raptured away, while Elevation was left behind. Thus, seven songs from All That You Can't Leave Behind are left to fight to the death for two slots in the 2000s 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.

Really didn't expect Elevation to outlive New York given how unpopular the former's studio version is.

Anyway, IALW and Stuck have been loitering for much too long.

This is going to be ugly. I clicked to vote for Elevation and the count went up by two in that split second.

This is going to be the biggest decimation that we have seen here in quite some time! Really Nick, what did you achieve by changing your vote in the last minute?

It's between Elevation and Walk On for me.

Voted Elevation, but I felt a little remorse when I saw how badly it's being crushed. Life goes on.

Maybe any song that gets over 30% of votes should be eliminated? Unless it's down to the final round. Would speed up these early album rounds and give Nick less threads to disparage everyone.

Given Elevation looks dead, I will make a stand against IALW

In A Little While has some funny lyrics, man!

That girl...
That girl, she's mine
Well, I've known her since...
Since she was a little girl
With spanish eyes
Ohh, when I saw her
In a pram they pushed her by

Ooh hooo my how you've grown!

Well, it's been
Been a little while

Sounds more like Bono was just making up the lyrics on the spot just to catch up with the melody... kinda like what's that show's name?......
Whose Line Is It Anyway. Great show!

I am disgusted that WILATW has more votes than IALW.

That's one of the reasons why I like the song. He sings it almost casually but it just fits.

It's one of my favorite Bono vocals, probably my favorite since Achtung Baby/Zooropa.
