Best Song Survivor: Zooropa Round Five

Numb was eliminated in the last round. That leaves six songs competing for four slots in 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.

Regarding Original Soundtracks 1, I have an idea. I think I may do a non-album-song-style round at first, allowing people to check off their favorite songs, and then take the top seven songs (that's half of the album) and eliminate them the normal way. Does that sound reasonable? I do it, partially, because I'm planning on releasing song rankings within each album, and I'd like to have at least some data for OS1.

Love the song, and Johnny Cash is great. But this is where I vote the Wanderer off. Still wish I could hear the album version with Bono on vocals.

For fuck's sake. It's long past time for The Wanderer to wander away.

And sounds good Digi, saves us a LOT of unnecessary rounds, since most people don't care for Passengers, except for 2 songs.

Hilarious that a mediocre song like The Wanderer lasted as long as it did...almost as long as the revered Acrobat. It says a lot about the relatively weak record it's on.

Sigh. If only The Wanderer and Acrobat had been played on the last tour, they'd have lasted longer than they did.

Oh well, there's always YBR and UV. And Zooropa winning these rounds is a foregone conclusion, it's the new Acrobat.

I'm staying consistent here, y'all.

And great idea with Passengers. Since it was mine.

I was probably speaking in code that only makes sense to me. Or you probably have me on ignore for constantly voting for The First Time.

Or maybe I planted the idea in your head subliminally without you knowing, in which case I should exercise that superpower more often

I have no intention of voting for either The Wanderer or The First Time, so I guess I'm voting for Dirty Day.

Dirty Day was my vote last time and should be this time, but I'll sacrifice Wanderer to save The First Time.

Not much to say. I don't like the song very much. I'll be voting for it the rest of the way.

The First Time for the second time. I don't think The Wanderer is quite a top five song on Zooropa, but it's better than The First Time. Shame neither Numb nor SDABTO have held on to make the top five with Zooropa, Lemon, Stay, and Dirty Day.

This sounds like a good solution.
