Rate the Song: Oh Berlin

Today, we finally begin the very last round of the 90s, with the last six 90s non-album songs (all of which are only quasi-90s songs, coming from the Achtung Baby remaster). The full list of 90s non-album songs is:

Alex Descends into Hell for a Bottle of Milk/Korova 1
Lady with the Spinning Head
Salomé
Where Did It All Go Wrong?
Slow Dancing
Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
Viva Davidoff
Holy Joe
North and South of the River
I'm Not Your Baby
Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad
Sweetest Thing (new version)
Blow Your House Down
Heaven And Hell
Oh Berlin
Near The Island
Down All The Days
Everybody Loves A Winner

This round will feature Blow Your House Down through Everybody Loves A Winner.

Please rate Oh Berlin on a scale from 0 to 10, using whatever criteria you feel allows you to best evaluate the song as a whole. I will not set criteria for people to based on, but if you feel like your best evaluation of the merits of a song comes from voting only based on, say, the studio version, go right ahead and vote that way. Full information on the Rate The Song series may be found in this thread.

Have fun! This poll will close in 96 hours.

Pretty decent tune. Gotta say the drums on this are awesome. The main guitar riff during the verse is quite catchy. 7.

Absolutely love the music, but the silly lyrics bring it down overall.

I love everything about this song. I wish I'd heard it in the 90s.

I expected to really hate this song– I don't generally like spoken word songs, but this one I actually like, and I'm surprised at how much I do listen to it. A solid 7.

The music calls for a wailing War era Bono. Disappointing that they didnt finish it.

Hey, sorry, can my vote be adjusted in counting the final total? I had two tabs open and accidentally voted 8 in this one, thinking it was the poll for Down All The Days. Was going to give this 7.

Sorry, I know other people have missed voting in the past, and I haven't added their scores in. I want to make this as fair as possible, with every song having exactly the same time to get votes and no more.

Yeah otherwise there could be some 0's added to passengers from me. But luckily I was on a holiday when that voting round happened.
