LIB is just a wee bit too slow for my liking. Live it's absolutely amazing, but the studio version is a bit boring.

WGRYWH is the only song left that isn't perfect.

I'm really surprised to see multiple votes for Love Is Blindness. That might be Bono's finest-ever lyrical turn. Can't say the same for Wild Horses, though. "You left my heart as empty as a vacant lot" is one of his worst lines, I think. Anyway, Wild Horses gets my vote.

Wild Horses is incredible. One of my favorite U2 tracks.

LiB never really took off until ZooTV.

I love both Wild Horses and LIB. I like LIB more, and it's the one I'd choose to be in finals, but casting a vote against Wild Horses would be really tough for me nonetheless.

That's exactly my feelings too.

Man, opinions have really changed around here.

Love is Blindness is remarkable. A highlight on the album as well as live.

Mysterious Ways till it's gone for me. I like it and all, it's just never really excited me much on the album. And though this doesn't affect my vote, their decision to play it on 360 without the solo was egregious.

Wild Horses, just to ensure it departs before Blindness. Acrobat is doing worryingly too well.

WGRYWH is an amazing lovely song.

But all the others are amazing in their own ways too.

I chose it this round only because it had the majority of votes. And I've finally learned that it's the best way to go when that happens to be one of the songs you aren't wanting to bring through ultimately.

Keep your final choices safe. That's pretty much it.
