WORST song survivor: war (round 1)

the final round for october had scarlet getting the boot. this means is that all? wins for this album, and will go on to compete in the finals later.

full results:
scarlet: 33
is that all?: 28

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 ONE (WAR):
- sunday bloody sunday
- seconds
- new year's day
- like a song
- drowning man
- the refugee
- two hearts beat as one
- red light
- surrender
- 40

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.

Definitely Drowning Man, with 40 being a close second.

New Year's Day. One of the greatest songs ever recorded.

This is probably the only album with which there is no doubt in my mind over which song is the best.
Sunday Bloody Sunday.

And I can't believe it took you people until the final October round to vote out Scarlet.

Eh, it should've lost.

Anyway, I'm going to have to go with New Year's Day on this one, too. Classic song.

Khanada do you end the rounds early to prevent last minute strategic voting?

Like a Song, followed by Drowning Man. I'm so tired of the hits.
