The two worst remaining are clearly Magnificent and Unknown Caller.

I still love Magnificent, shame it fades to nothing at the end.

I quite like the "from the womb" lyric, it's the "you and I justified..til we die." blah blah blah crap that I find embarrassing.

Talking of embarrassing lyrics, Unknown Caller wins all prizes for that. Great ideas on this song but it just doesn't work for me.

A grotesquely high number of votes for Magnificence this early.

Voting White As Snow to save Cedarse

I actually do like Cedars of Lebanon and White As Snow so I'll stay out of that one. Unknown Caller it is. I really do want to like it, though. I think it had potential. Some of the lyrics feel awkward to me.

Damn, Magnificent is going to lose to Unknown Caller in a couple rounds.

You know the lyrics, so punch Bono in the face.

White As Snow in an attempt to save Cedars, although I really like the song and it shouldn't leave this early

Damnit, White As Snow is one of the two best tracks here.

I'll probably go Breathe or Unknown Caller, especially as I'd rather not oust Cedars to protect WAS, it also being a highlight of the album.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Definitely Unknown Caller. The middle 4 are the weakest.

I'm just a little bit surprised by the large number of votes for Magnificent, although I can understand why it can be unpopular around here. But other U2-by-numbers songs like Beautiful Day and COBL did well in their respective album rounds. Magnificent is almost as good or better than COBL!

Anyway I know what the problem is... It is up against some tough competition in the form of NLOTH, MOS, Fez etc. If the album had been filled with clunkers (as was the case with the previous 2 albums), Magnificent would have probably done decently well. lol.
