Best Song Survivor: Pop, Round Four

Since digitize is out of town, he has asked me to start this round, and it is very nice indeed to return to the Survivor driver's seat. In the last round, it was a very iffy battle (sorry), with If You Wear That Velvet Dress narrowly losing to If God Will Send His Angels. We are now left with nine songs fighting it out for Pop's three spots in the 1990s quarter-final. You have 24 hours to vote for your least favourite song, the next song to be eliminated from this contest. For anyone just joining us, rules may be found here.

Last round's results:
19 votes: If You Wear That Velvet Dress
16: If God Will Send His Angels
6: Staring at the Sun and Wake Up Dead Man
3: Last Night on Earth
0: Discotheque, Do You Feel Loved, Mofo, Gone, Please
(Total votes: 50)

IGWSHA, again. Truly one of U2's strangest single choices.

I don't mind the song actually, but it'll be IGWSHA for me this round as well.

This is when it gets hard. I really like all of the songs remaining. Last Night on Earth, I guess.

Since I don't care which one leaves first (between LNOE and IGWSHA), my vote goes to LNOE in hopes of a tie.

Actually change my vote to IGWSHA please. It sucks as well and Last Night does not deserve to go yet.

And not in a good way. Gone or Mofo would have made much more sense.

Personally i don't hate it, I like it a lot more than I used to and I quite happily listen to it from time to time, but I do find it fairly boring compared to the others.

I quite like IGWSHA, but I'm neither devastated or surprised by the hate for it around here. Its relative accessibility, and presence (albeit in alternate form) on a middling movie's soundtrack (has U2 ever done a song for a good movie?) makes it an easy target.

Even the man who thinks POP is the worst album of all time defends songs from it. What a surprise!

You'd just hate to seem part of The Hive wouldn't ya
