The piano in IFD makes me cringe and the lyrics are horrendous. It's the only October song I always skip.

Scarlet's a beautiful, peaceful near-instrumental that should have been the ideal closer.

Really? Well, never mind, you had the title track as the 8th best song on the album.

For the record, much of the lyrical content on October is horrendous, at least on paper. It's obvious that Bono wrote most of it at the very last possible second, and elected to make whatever scribbles he could pen fit the songs rhythmically, rather than tell a story or make any fucking sense whatsoever.

Because it's less a song and more an intro/outro like MLK. It should have preceded Tomorrow, since the band proved on the War Tour that it makes an eerie intro for Tomorrow.

He could have voted in this round, he was posting when it was active.

But yeah, I'll manually add it.

There's only 15 minutes left anyway. I'm preparing the new round now.
