Best Song Survivor: 2000s Quarterfinal, Round Two

Vertigo was sent spinning out of this contest in the first round of the 2000s quarterfinal. That leaves eight songs vying for four slots in the 1990s/2000s semifinal. You have twenty-four hours to vote against your least favorite song. For anyone just joining us, rules may be found here.

I mean, this is so obviously Electrical Storm. The single version is okay, I guess, but that's about all I can say positively about it. Vote Electrical Storm off, then we can have an actual discussion about seven very good songs.

Fez. Elimate it and then we can have an actual discussion about seven exceptional songs. It's a good song, but no way in hell it deserves to go any further than the others.

Oh joy, the three songs I really want to go through to the 90s/00s finals - TGBHF, Electrical Storm, and Fez - are the three on the chopping block.

Time to waste my vote on MOS. Woo. Not as if the other two songs I want to oust, Kite and BD, would be any less of a wasted vote though.

Ground Beneath Her Feet should last longer than Fez.

Well this is shitty. My two favorite remaining songs of the 00s are the leading votegetters.

If Fez goes this round, I'll cast a vote for Kite next time. Can't help ya on MOS or BD though.

I feel like most of the people voting off Fez just resent its praise or its "status" as "experiemental." Which is probably more frustrating than if they were simply voting it off because it's worse than "The air is heavy, heavy as a truck."

I'd like the 16 people who have cast votes for TGBHF and Fez to explain themselves immediately.

I like them less than the other songs...they're both great though.

I think Kite is the worst one here right now.

I can somehow even understand the votes for Fez but I simply cannot understand the votes for Ground Beneath. Easily one of the best songs of the decade!

I voted it off because it's worse than TGBHF which is, inexplicably, on the chopping block.

Fez looks gone and fair enough. Going to throw a vote at a song that is somehow escaping scrutiny, NLOTH.

If Fez leaves and COBL has only 3 votes, I'm done voting.

ES encapsulates everything that was wrong with 00's U2. Fez offers a window into what could have been. But I have to go now because my coffee's cold (but it will get me through), and the air is getting heavy...heavy as a truck

I've already explained myself a few times for voting TGBHF, but I'll do it again since we're being asked to. For one, U2 didn't write the lyrics, and I choose to take that into account for my voting. For two, I don't particularly care for them, regardless of who wrote them. Three, the song is okay, but I like it a lot less than all the rest here, and also less than a very huge amount of other U2 songs. I do like the music and I pretty much always enjoy Bono's singing, but again, there is the main reason stated above that I personally would never consider it one of U2's best songs. There you go.

The "go lightly down your darkened way" part of the song (great line btw) is one of those magnificently dramatic moments that can only come from songs meant for a film. And how sensuous is that guitar line at the beginning? The only part I kind of dislike is that sort of cheesy keyboard/high pitched organ riff. That's lame. Otherwise, perfect track. Reminds me of 90s U2; dark and classy.
