MOS or Kite. You people better not oust TGBHF or Electrical Storm, two rare examples of U2 songs from the 2000s that can compete with their earlier output. Bummed that Fez is gone.

TGBHF vs Electrical Storm is an easy one for me.

Out of these songs, I can honestly say I listen to Beautiful Day the least.

This is hard. I picked the one I listen to the least- TGBHF. Still a good song, though.

I get that TGBHF and Electrical Storm are atmospheric. I think TGBHF is a finished, excellent song, whereas Electrical Storm, while similar in "atmospheric" qualities, is just not as good, IMO.

I would have voted for that, but The Ground Beneath Her Feet is in danger, so whatever needs to be done.

Ah yes, atmospheric much better than experimental.

It's time for Kite to fly away.

COBL, then beautiful Day. After that, I am happy for any of the remaining songs to advance

I'm not sure which is more embarrassing...that afterthoughts like GBHF and ES beat out Fez or that songs like COBL and Kite are getting votes while the former two are still here. But hopefully the next couple rounds will see the throwaways dispensed with, at which point the voting becomes considerably more difficult.

Anyway, since ES and GBHF are both uninteresting in equal measure it's hard to know whether to vote for a song with the lyric "Need the rain to wash away our bad luck" (BTW a great way to describe the song when it gets voted off, Dig) or a song associated with a "boring-as-a-dog's-ass" film and Rushdie's pretentious and overrated (unrelated) book.

And since we're elevating sleepy second-tier singles from movies, where's HTBA after all? It would be a much easier choice if that gem was still around.

Is there anyone out there who can explain what COBL is still doing here?

The reason I don't like it is because it's boring. The fact that it's a throwaway stuck onto the soundtrack of a bad movie is incidental.

I quite like HMTMKMKM, and that's also stuck onto a bad movie. But that song's not boring.
