Best Song Survivor v2: Nineties Semi-Final

Please vote for your FAVOURITE song(s).
The top ELEVEN songs from this era proceed to the Grand Final.

Welcome to the nineties 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 Pop era round was very close, with eight songs seriously in contention for the seven finals spots. In the end, Wake Up Dead Man was the song that had to miss out. Also, although no b-sides made the final, they held their own this round, with North and South of the River doing better than a third of the songs from Pop. Out of the 26 nineties semi-finalists, only ten have been featured on U2's Best Of compilations (eleven if you count The Fly as a bonus track on some issues). However, they fare a bit better on the singles front: thirteen, or half the semi-finalists, have been singles. The semi features seven tracks from both Achtung and Pop, six from Zooropa, five from Passengers, and one non-album single.

I didn't realize If You Wear That Velvet Dress had such a low "Favorite" rating around here. Too bad.

Lots of great songs, but these 6 are better than the rest. Pity Wake Up Dead Man didn't make it in.

This is a pretty strong collection of tracks; I think the eighties selection was superior, but this is still impressive. I don't really think that One, UV, Daddy's Gonna Pay, Miss Sarajevo, or SATS really belong amongst the other 21 tracks, but those 21 really capture what made U2 great in the nineties and I'm having trouble narrowing my selection down to eleven. It's obviously going to be a brutal battle for those last few qualifying spots and every vote will count.

Psh, it should've. That's still one of my favourite Survivor results on here. LWTSH is an amazing song and it's better than most of the tracks in this semi.

To be honest, I didn't know Until the End of the World was this loved on this board. I knew it was liked, but not this much.
