Best Song Survivor: Zooropa Round Six

The Wanderer wandered off in the last round. That leaves five songs left from Zooropa. As four songs progress to the 1990s quarterfinal round, this shall be the final round for Zooropa! The four songs not eliminated here will move on to quarterfinals. 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.

Shit, I accidentally voted for The First Time when I meant to vote for Dirty Day. So register that as a vote change.

I'm a little surprised The First Time has lasted this long.

Dirty Day. The First Time is too beautiful to get off. Also, it's my third favorite song on Zooropa.

The First Time. With that gone, it is my perfect top 4 on this album.

You mean my vote might actually count for something this time?

The First Time is not very exciting, and does not at all deserve to make the finals. It's weaker than even the studio version of Dirty Day, and the live Dirty Day is one of U2's finest achievements. It's better than everything else on Zooropa bar the title track. Seriously, if the studio version of Dirty Day were as good as the live version, it would be in my top fifteen U2 songs for sure.

Yeah. Sad to say, though, that the studio version of Dirty Day is very, very lacking.

Truth.

This must be The First Time's best ever result.

This is panning out quite similarly to last time, actually. Dirty Day only just nudged out The First Time to make Zooropa's top four, 39-37, but in that tournament Zooropa only had three finalists rather than four (as it didn't rate as well in the Best Album Survivor that time around) so Dirty Day was ousted in the last round.

And it would not at all be outside the realm of possibility for The First Time to still be voted off in this round.
