Best Song Survivor v2: GRAND FINAL!

Please vote for your FAVOURITE song(s).
This is the VERY LAST round. The results of this round will be the forum's U2 Top 30. You may vote for as many or as few songs as you like, remembering each vote cast (or not cast) is valuable in determining the final rank order.
Note: To clarify, "No Line on the Horizon" includes all versions of the song - i.e. it encompasses NLOTH II.


Welcome to the GRAND FINAL in Best Song Survivor v2! The thirty songs represent Interference's favourites as voted over the course of the tournament - the purpose of this round will be to rank them. Whichever song receives the most votes will be crowned Interference's #1 track. This round will last 48 hours; you vote for your favourite tracks (within reason). 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.

The 2000s semi-final was very closely fought and we only just avoided a tie for sixth place. The grand final receives from this era two NLOTH tracks, one each from ATYCLB and HTDAAB, and two non-album tracks. 19 of our 30 grand finalists were released as singles, while 15 have appeared on Best Ofs (16 if you count The Fly as a bonus track in some countries). Album representation in the finals is as follows:

Boy: 1
October: 1
War: 2
The Unforgettable Fire: 3
The Joshua Tree: 3
Rattle and Hum: 2
Achtung Baby: 4
Zooropa: 3
Passengers: 0 (Your Blue Room missed by a single vote)
Pop: 3
ATYCLB: 1
HTDAAB: 1
NLOTH: 2
Non-album singles: 3
B-sides: 0
Other non-album material: 1 (The Ground Beneath Her Feet)

Results from last round:

(bold = qualified for finals)
1. Beautiful Day - 37 votes
2. Moment of Surrender - 34
3. Electrical Storm - 28
4. No Line on the Horizon - 26
5. The Ground Beneath Her Feet - 25
6. City of Blinding Lights - 22

=7. Breathe - 21

9. Kite - 20
10. Magnificent - 17
11. Vertigo - 16
12. Fez-Being Born - 15
13. When I Look at the World - 13

=15. A Man and a Woman - 8

(Total voters: 54)

I'm tossing up how many songs to vote for - was thinking of voting a top ten but it's hard to cut some. However, people may be interested in knowing what songs are here that didn't make it in 2009 and vice versa.

FINALIST IN 2013 BUT NOT 2009
11 O'clock Tick Tock
Sunday Bloody Sunday
One
Lemon
Mofo
The Ground Beneath Her Feet
Electrical Storm
Moment of Surrender

FINALIST IN 2009 BUT NOT IN 2013
Running to Stand Still
Acrobat
Love Is Blindness
Walk On
Kite
Magnificent
Fez
Breathe

Voted for a handful of underdogs like With Or Without You and One as well as some favourites. No way I'm voting for Streets or Bad even though I like them very much. They don't need my help.

I hope Streets doesn't win yet again.

Lemon is leading. Won't last long but it is great for me to see this, since it's one of my top 3 U2 songs.

Every song on this list is so good, but I voted for the two that are above the rest: The Fly and One Tree Hill.
