Best Song Survivor: Grand Finalé

It is time for the very last round of the late 2012-early 2013 Interference Best Song Survivor! The top two songs are Where the Streets Have No Name and Bad. Please note that your task is still to vote against your least favorite of the two. You have 48 hours to vote against your least favorite song. For anyone just joining us, rules may be found here.

Also, I plan to create a rather detailed results summary, like I did for Rate the Song. But I am very busy right now, so it may take a bit of time.

Thanks, digitize.

Bad, again. Where the Streets Have No Name is just magical, both on the album and live. Both are great songs, however.

I love Streets. But Bad is just so beautifully haunting. I love the poignant lyrics and the ambience the song creates.

Streets for me.

Both songs are epic, though, and transcend time and space.

I've been feeling Bad a lot more than Streets lately, so I'll vote Streets.

Since I've only voted on studio versions this whole time, the vote is a piece of cake. Streets deserves to win if this the final.

Meanwhile, in the considerably more prestigious survivor running in my head, Zooropa is comfortably winning, with 9 votes to All I Want Is You's 16. Just thought you guys should know who the real winner is.

In taking into consideration both studio and live, I still have to go with Bad. I love both songs, and obviously they are both incredible live, but studio wise, Streets is far and away better.

I sure hope not..from what I understand Digitize will compile an exhaustive study on individual's voting patterns and we'll all form warring factions accordingly in the near future.

Or he'll submit the results to the Feds, and god only knows what they'll do with the info

They already know the results in advance. I mean, FBI and CIA.

Sorry Bad, your WAIA version is my favourite U2 moment of all time, but the studio version of Streets is probably their best studio effort of all time, a song so good that even the beatles and the stones couldn't manage anything as exhillirating and uplifting.
