Best Song Survivor v2: Zooropa era

Please vote for your FAVOURITE song(s).
The top SEVEN songs from this era proceed to the Nineties Semi-Final.

Welcome to the Zooropa era round 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 Achtung Baby round was possibly the closest of the entire tournament. There was a close contest for all seven finalist spots. The Fly continues to maintain its popularity on Interference, finishing at the top of the poll; surprisingly, Acrobat, once such a fan favourite here, only just scraped into the finals ahead of Zoo Station and EBTTRT. Lady With the Spinning Head could not replicate its finals placing of 2009, finishing three spots off the pace. The results for Achtung are the most different so far to 2009's results; I've included the 2009 results at the bottom in case anybody wants to see how much Interference's attitude has changed over the last four years. Also, although Everybody Loves a Winner was in the poll, it is actually a cover and shouldn't have been there; expunging it from the record doesn't make much of a difference since it only got one vote.

I like a lot here, but Lemon, Stay, and Hold Me Thrill Me are so far above the rest that I only voted for them.

Is HMTMKMKM grouped with Zooropa because it originated in those sessions? I only ask, because given that was released two years later, and played at every Popmart show, a lot of people have associated it with that era.

yeah i'd definitely say Zooropa because, like you said, it was recorded during the same sessions. but then, futher drawing a line under the whole Zooropa era, you've also got Passengers in between that and Pop.

Personally, even though it was recorded for/left off the album, I've always thought of the song as pretty separated from Zooropa anyway - probably just because of how far apart I heard them both. but it's definitely in the right poll here, if they release a Zooropa special edition (hopefully!!) there's no doubt the song would turn up on that. i've typed way too much there sorry.
