Best Song Survivor: Pop, Round Two

The Playboy Mansion was kicked out of the gates of Interference's mansion in the last round. Eleven songs are now left competing for three slots in the 1990s quarterfinal round. You have 24 hours to vote for your least favorite song, the next song to be eliminated from this contest. For anyone just joining us, rules may be found here.

What's people's issue with Velvet Dress? Of what's here at least SATS, Angels and Miami are much worse.

Yeah I don't know! What a great song, and a little bit unique in U2's catalog.

I'm holding my vote to see what's happen, I don't want to see "Velvet Dress" out this early.

Miami needs to die.

As for Velvet Dress, it's a good song but not one I always want to hear. I'd move on to voting for it if Discotheque, IGWSHA, and SATS were ousted.

Just because someone casts a vote on the internet in some stupid song poll doesn't necessarily mean that they hate the song they voted for or that they even have any real issue with it.

This is one of my ten favorite albums of all time, by anybody ever, and I voted for Velvet Dress because I enjoy it slightly less than some of the others. I still love it, and don't have a problem with it. It's just the rules of the game.

I can't vote for Miami or Velvet Dress. May have to vote for Staring at the Sun or Wake Up Dead Man, but I really wish Gone was on the chopping block. I've never understood why it is so embraced in these parts. Great song indeed, but better than the excellent songs on this cracking album? Certainly not in my mind.

It doesn't do anything for me.

It's probably down in my bottom 5 U2 songs with stuff like Babyface.

I must admit I'm surprised how even the votes are at this early stage rather than turning into a massive flogging of Miami, which you'd think would be the predictable outcome.

You're the fucking scum of the earth and don't deserve to breathe, really.

You have some strange, strange opinions my friend.

Pop is such a tough round. So many awful songs, so difficult to pick which is worst.

Since Pop sounds less like a U2 record than Passengers does, perhaps it should have gotten the express dismissal that Passengers clearly didn't deserve.

Although I like it more than I did (it was my least favourite U2 song for years), IGWSHA is still fairly boring, and deserves to go now. How was it chosen as a single ahead of Mofo, Do you Feel Loved or Gone is beyond me.

I still like Pop but it was the first U2 album I was disappointed by upon 1st listen, to be honest I knew I was in for a let down when I saw the album cover.

I don't see why If God Will Send His Angels is so unpopular. I love that song.

As do I.

Staring at the Sun is bland and Miami was a bad idea. Otherwise, I adore this album.

One word to describe if God will send his angels: gorgeous

Pop, as a whole, is one of those albums i can never get tired of listening to (like TUF). There is always something new to find there, unlike atyclb-htdaab.
