Best Song Survivor: 2000s Quarterfinal, Round Four

Electrical Storm was struck by lightening in the last round. Or perhaps it was hit by something heavy as a truck. Regardless, it was eliminated. Six songs are left from the 2000s, competing for four songs in the 1990s/2000s quarterfinals. You have twenty-four hours to vote against your least favorite song. For anyone just joining us, rules may be found here.

The two tracks here from NLOTH are great, and they're definitely my two favorite from that album...but I like everything else on the list better.

I'll toss a vote at MOS here. Sensational track, though.

COBL - Everything here stand up with 80s and 90s material for mine. COBl is a fantastic track, but hasn't aged as well as the others for mine. Its one I skip on live DVDs/CDs more often than not now.

In an attempt to keep The Ground Beneath Her Feet, I'm bandwagoning City Of Blinding Lights (instead of my natual vote for Kite). I'm okay with this as it's my second least remaining favorite and The Ground Beneath Her Feet is nearly perfection. Can't believe it's getting so many votes.

Sucks that Electrical Storm is gone.

I'll probably vote MOS again or maybe Kite, but I'd bandwagon COBL if it meant the survival of TGBHF, the best song to make the 2000s finals.

Ground Beneath Her Feet is a goner, but there really should be more votes for NLOTH and Kite Flying at this stage... And then you may just have the three best songs of the decade.

TGBHF

i think it's somewhat overrated.

NLOTH is a fantastic song esp that last version of the chorus that takes you up and out into that ineffable horizon

COBL almost always gives me a joyful, engergized feeling even more so than BD which does also....

Going with Cobl as it looks like the only shot to save TGBHF.

Any song with "feet" in the title needs to go, period.

COBL needs to sod off. It's something Coldplay could come up with.

If I'm honest, I think NLOTH is the weakest song left, but I still love it.
