Best Song Survivor: Pop, Round Eight

Last Night on Earth... the joke is so obvious that I'm not going to make it. It was eliminated. We are finally getting somewhat close to finished with Pop. Five songs remain, three will advance to finals. 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.

Reminder: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO VOTE BASED ONLY ON ALBUM VERSIONS. YOU CAN VOTE BASED ON WHATEVER YOU WANT TO VOTE ON. HOWEVER, IF THAT IS JUST ALBUM VERSIONS, KNOCK YOURSELF OUT.

This is very difficult now. I'm really not sure which way I'm going yet.

Please. It was either that or Do You Feel Loved. I usually think that I love Please, but then listen to it and think "eh, it's okay." Then I remember what I really love is singing it. So, yeah... Please it is.

I'm holding my vote for now. I'll really vote for anything else here to save Discotheque. Far and away the best song on the album, except maybe Wake Up Dead Man (but we all saw that song's cruel fate).

I don't even know why this is close. Please is a U2 classic, and Discotheque is one of those fun/ridiculous things U2 has done that we can all laugh about.

Two of these are not like the other things
Two of these just do not belong
Can you guess which two are not like the other things
Before I finish this song?

Did you guess which things are not like the other things?
Did you guess with all your might?
If you guessed that "Discotheque" and "Do You Feel Loved" are not like the other things
You know what? You're right!

"Discotheque" can boom-cha right on out the door.

Tough, tough choice. But out of these 5, I think I'm voting for Gone.

I almost can't bring myself to vote against any of these. Please is a work of art in my opinion, but Discotheque is so witty and fun. Mofo and Gone feel so personal and are so good, no way I can vote against them... that leaves DYFL... but I love that song so much. Nope... can't vote yet.

Please. On the album version it only gets good after "September...". Lyrics are somewhat weak in spots- " so love is hard, and love is tough... But love is not what you're thinking of" and "You had to win, You couldn't just pass, The smartest ass, At the top of the class". These lyrics along with the plodding murkiness on the album get a big BOO.

Many parts of the album actually sound murky, I don't know if it's shitty production or what?
