Best Song Survivor: Pop, Round Seven

Staring at the Sun was eliminated in the last round ( ). Still six songs remain from Pop. Half of them will progress to the 1990s 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.

Discotheque. I love it, but there is just too much quality remaining. Given the obvious order that things have gone (only one relaly close one, and both tracks are gone) will be difficult to tell how the votes will redistribute

LNOE. One of my least liked songs from their catalogue.

Gone is easily the least appealing here... But tempted to wait to see if I need to vote to save something else.

I'm not saying what I voted for anymore. People see a consensus forming early and start getting all defensive with their voting.

Discotheque is not up to the same quality as the others.

Discotheque is clearly weaker than the other five. I've always found its studio version to be a bit flat and uninspired. It became amazing on the Popmart Tour, but the other five were already amazing in studio.

LNOE is fucking amazing. I fear it will perish this round, which would be a shame - definitely one of U2's best rock anthems. Love that chorus.

I won't be losing any sleep if this turns out to be the last night on earth for LNOE. It was a monster live, but it's clearly rough around the edges ( the 'middle eight' - wtf is going on there exactly?). Having said that, it doesn't deserve to be elimated before Discotheque. I do feel inclined to vote in order to safeguard DYFL aka the best U2 single that wasn't a single.

I'm realizing something: I think that I like this album less than I used to. As a whole, I think it's utterly fascinating, extremely interesting, and a very, very good album. But I'm not as interested in a lot of the songs that are considered standouts here. For instance, neither Gone nor DYFL nor LNOE really does much for me. Compared with the other 90s albums, I like Zooropa much more, which used to not at all be the case. OS1 is creeping up too, though I think I still prefer Pop. And obviously, I prefer Achtung Baby to Pop, though Pop stands in good company in that regard.

Yeah, I didn't think it would be this close yet.

You realize we can all see who voted for what, right?
