Yes. When put into the context of the song, they make perfect sense.

All four are great songs, but Gone is my least favourite here. Much better live.

Seriously, Mofo is one of the worst songs U2 ever recorded. It's popularity around here is almost as bizarre as LWTSH. It's not as bad are Miami or Playboy Mansion, but pretty close. Just garbage.

Please and in particular Do You Feel Love? are weak, and have no business beating the better songs on this record (most of which of course are now gone).

Speaking of which, Gone is one of the best songs on that record, and on some nights the live version would enter the stratosphere. Even though U2 has wisely disowned Pop, and mercifully will likely never play most of those songs live, ever again, I have to admit there's a few songs from it I wish they'd bring back in concert. Only one of which is remaining here.

Voted for Gone, but it doesn't look like it will matter.

For some reason, I expected this final round to be a bit closer.

Since Gone evidently doesn't need any protection, I went with DYFL per the logic of my first post in the thread. Four sensational songs here and all would be worthy finalists.

There's an interesting comparison with last time. Pop had four finalists rather than three, since it did better in Best Album Survivor then. However, DYFL did much worse. The four finalists were Mofo, LNOE, Gone, and Please. Discotheque was eliminated as fifth, SATS sixth, and DYFL seventh. So it's moved up a full three spaces in the intervening few years. Good showing. (Had Pop only had three like this time around, it looks fairly conclusive that LNOE would've been ousted, so the top three is unchanged.)

Which songs do you consider the better songs on the record?

I can't believe Discothèque lost out to Do You Feel Loved.

Oh well, at least it goes in this round.

You know, you're right, I'm slipping. First it's "Do You Feel Love?" next it will be "Where The Street Has No Name".

So here's the deal LemonMelon/COBL/Axver (if you are indeed different people), et. al., I've changed my mind about The Hive. I wan't to join. Really.

What do I need to do? Is there a secret handshake? Do you guys all wear the same sunglasses? I'll vote to keep Mofo in; I'll swear up and down that Acrobat is the greatest song ever written; I'll trash One and praise LWTSH; I'll shout out loud that Pop is a misunderstood masterpiece and U2 are tools for disowning it; I'll hang out for hours/days/weeks/years in the Random Music Threads like I work at Championship Vinyl mocking EYKIW, then come over here and slum when I'm bored. Just tell me what I need to do. Please, I'm serious. This is a cry for help.

Oh. Are there any girl members?

I thought the secret handshake was kissing my arse, but the results of this Survivor appear to indicate otherwise.
