Best Song Survivor v2: 2000s Semi-Final

Please vote for your FAVOURITE song(s).
The top SIX songs from this era proceed to the Grand Final.
Note: To clarify, "No Line on the Horizon" includes all versions of the song - i.e. it encompasses NLOTH II.

Welcome to the 2000s semi-final in Best Song Survivor v2! The object of this game is to find Interference's favourite U2 songs. Each album will be featured in a single round with the non-album tracks from its era. The amount of finalists from each era is based on seeding from the latest U2 Album Survivor. These rounds will last 48 hours and will be multiple choice polls where you vote for your favourite tracks (within reason). A suggestion is to vote for the amount of tracks that will proceed to the next round, although this is not a hard and fast rule. Remember that there is a tradeoff: if you vote for more songs, the power of each of your votes is dampened, but if you vote for fewer songs, you get to spread your influence less far.

Only original U2 songs with official studio releases will compete. However, you are free to vote on the basis of live versions, alternate versions, remixes, etc., as in the normal version of Survivor. Basically whatever you think best represents the song in your mind.

The NLOTH era had a number of very strong performers, and also a decent contest for its sixth and final qualifying spot. This semi-final features six songs from NLOTH, four each from ATYCLB and HTDAAB, and in the best semi-final showing yet for other material, four non-album tracks - two compilation tracks, one ATYCLB era bonus track, and one HTDAAB era bonus tracks. Six of these eighteen tracks have been featured on Best Ofs; not a bad showing given the NLOTH era material hasn't had the chance to be on a compilation. Eight of these tracks have been released as singles.

(bold = qualified for finals)
1. Moment of Surrender - 47 votes
2. No Line on the Horizon - 45
3. Fez-Being Born - 38
4. Breathe - 36
5. Magnificent - 35
6. Cedars of Lebanon - 23

7. Unknown Caller - 21
=8. Soon - 17
=8. White as Snow - 17
10. Crazy Tonight - 14
11. Winter - 7
12. Get on Your Boots - 5
13. Stand Up Comedy - 3
(Total voters: 59)

I can't believe there's only one round to go after this - though I think I will compile a "worst of" selection as well.

Oh shit I didn't see Electrical Storm in there and totally forgot about it! Would've probably voted for it instead of Walk On. But it's okay. Walk On will do.

I can add an Electrical Storm vote if you want. Don't have to subtract the Walk On vote (or any other) either.
