will vote for almost anything there to save YBR. Stay and Zooropa are probably the only two I wouldn't.

Come on people, let's double-eliminate One and UV and move on with nine great songs, rather than turfing out YBR and letting some mediocrity go through.

... I'll keep dreaming. Anyway, probably the only songs I absolutely won't touch to save YBR are Zooropa, The Fly, and Gone. Also not keen on kicking out HMTMKMKM or Mofo.

YBR is great, but has nothing to do here.

YBR is one of my top 5 U2 songs. And it always has been - long before I fell under the enchantments and velvet-like wit of the members of The Hive.

Lemon - great track, has grown on me tremendously, but I don't think it should stay around any longer.

We were joking about this in the latest Cure survivor poll, but have we done a U2 live survivor yet? It wouldn't be quite as popular, and Streets will win anyway, but who gives a shit. It's something to do.

Not really, you just vote based on your overall impression of its live history.

It may be redundant, as some people already vote based on that, but maybe we could handle it a bit differently. Choose the best song of each tour or something.

Trying to save Blue Room, hence my vote for Lemon.

Can't believe Gone is still there.

Axver brought it up a couple years back. I personally think it's a terrible idea. Other than eliminating a bunch of songs off the top because they were never performed live, I don't see the results being any different really. People are still just going to vote for what songs they like, right? A lot of folks here don't listen to much live U2.

And, yeah, Streets would win. You'd have to not include it. Which would be weird. I just think it's a weird idea.

We've talked about live survivor a lot, but it's generally fallen over due to the fact it's hard to account for the imbalance between people who just have the official DVDs (and thus a very limited range of U2's live songs - no One Tree Hill, for instance) and the people who've got a billion bootlegs.

I suppose we could do a Songs From U2's Official Live Releases Survivor. Could be interesting to see RAH RTSS vs ZooTV RTSS and that sort of thing.

Yeah, this is about the only way it would work. And I would enjoy it. Running a typical survivor and plugging in live tracks would fail hard.

What about the R&H outtake from the Best Of 1980-1990 VHS? Isn't that official? Also, it's on the Live New Year's Eve Point Depot show that was released as part of the Complete U2. That should count as an official release. Although you did say DVDs.

I feel like mentioning, though, that a lot of songs that aren't on any official live release - not all by any means, but a lot - are easily findable via a simple youtube search. There's a lot of stuff there.
