yeah, usually i close threads when the poll is close (in situations like this anyway where there's multiple rounds) if i notice, i'm not sure what the other mods do. i know some of them do this as well. i think it's just a matter of one of us noticing or not.

of course if there were ever a time where the poll creator didn't want us to close their thread, i wouldn't oblige.

Does anybody agree that we're in a position where the mercy rule is justified? The Wanderer has received over 50% of the vote, and its margin over Dirty Day has been gradually widening for the entire round - 15 votes as I type.

I'd say a Mercy killing is feasable.

close it...another day won't change anything unless all 20 or so voters (to make it to the normal mid-90s count) go for dirty day.

I so adore all of these songs, but I agree with what's been said about The Wanderer: it's really a Johnny Cash song.

Oh, and yeah, I'd agree with the mercy rule.

Yup, I'll be closing it when I get home, so hang tight for about 2 more hours.

I wouldn't call The Wanderer a Johnny Cash song

The lyrics are by Bono, the music is by U2, and Bono's doing the backing vocals. It's just got Mr. Cash doing the main vocal. But it's still a U2 song.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE The Wanderer - it's just that to me it feels like something poring from Cash's soul, and really can't be put in the same category as the rest of Zooropa. Of course that shows Bono's great talent at writing for someone else. So, it's not that I like it less, I just think that I have trouble comparing with the others as U2 songs.
