WORST song survivor: war (final round)

last round had surrender saying goodbye. i'm sure it's no surprise to anyone who the final contenders are for war.

full results:
the refugee: 13
red light: 2
surrender: 43

the rules are pretty easy. this is for worst song U2 survivor. this means you vote OFF your FAVOURITE song. the goal here is to see what is the least-liked U2 song for each album, and narrow it down to least-liked song ever.

ROUND SEVEN (WAR):
- the refugee
- red light

you are to vote based on the studio version of that particular song. do not vote based on how it sounds live or how it sounded remixed.

timing of the poll: there are so many rounds, it really makes sense to keep each individual round as a timed ONE day poll. when we get to the end of each round, the final poll will last two days, to give more people a chance to vote.

ties will be broken by eliminating both songs from the poll UNLESS we are in the top five. even if there are three tied, all three will be eliminated. any more of a tie (four-way tie, etc.), then we will have a tiebreaker round.

also, when we get down to the final round (the winner of each previous round going against each other), these polls will last two days. the same tiebreaking rules apply.

remember, vote for what you consider to be the strongest song, or your favourite. this competition is to determine the WORST U2 song.

to view what's been considered eligible and what album (or b-sides) will be used next, please consult the preliminaries thread. note: this thread is now closed; i am just including the link for your viewing pleasure.

I look forward to seeing "Red Light" go down in massive flames.

"The Refugee" will live to rock on another day!

The Refugee. It rocks.

Oh boy, next album up is The Unforgettable Fire. $100 says Axver deems it a disgrace after each and every elimination for that album

JUST THE THOUGHT OF ELIMINATING SONGS FROM UF IS A DISGRACE!!!!



Hey, I won't even be here for some of that, seeing I fly to the US in three days and my total travelling time is longer than one round.

Maybe we can vote the entire album off in one foul swoup. All those in favour of banishing all of UF onto the final round just to spite Axver say I...

I think the I's have it.

amakaxver[at]gmail.com, though if you're referring to my Billy Boola comment, what I meant is that I haven't played it on the tour. This is insane. The tour began in January 2005 and I'm still debuting songs in August 2006. I'm wracking my brains trying to think of songs I haven't used yet.

And I'm glad you like the set! I'm pretty keen on the Discotheque --> EBTTRT combo I created to open. I'd also love to hear Mofo --> Brick, with Mofo coming to an end and Larry suddenly breaking into Brick's opening drums.

oh, so you have the song?

if i really had no life, i'd find as many of these songs live as possible and splice them together so it sounds like it's one concert or something. but i think for now i'll just stick with studio versions.

hey btw i didn't realize you were leaving for the states so soon. were you still wanting to meet up in memphis? i'll be out of work all of june so i'll have plenty of time to play tour guide.

Yeah, I have the song, though I haven't played it in ages. I put it on so I could work it into the set. I'm now working on sets for the later shows at the Orpheum. I have 14 from 15 August to 3 September. I'm starting to think I might have U2 cover an entire album by another band one night just to be really random ...

Definitely want to meet up in Memphis! I fly out on the 20th, then I'm off to Boston from the 24th to the 29th, and then I have all of June to plan. It's pretty hard to know just where I can go and when as it's dependent on when Kate has a car, but we are DEFINITELY coming to Memphis. At some uncertain point!
