I used to really dislike Some Days Are Better Than Others. Then, about a year ago, it really finally clicked with me. It'd be a shame if it leaves this early. My vote, again, goes to The Wanderer.

Numb again.

I actually like The Wanderer. I don't think a lot of people do...

Didn't read the other threads...will non-album songs (HMTMKMKM, Electrical Storm) be done after NLOTH?

The Wanderer is one of my fave songs, apart from the awful wah wah wah wanderer version, so desperate fot that to stay.
So in order to save that it has to be Some Days, even though i think it's a decent track.

Some Days Are Better Than Others.

The Wanderer is awesome. Great lyrics, plus Johnny Cash. But I don't have any pipe dreams that it's going to make it more than another round or two.

Really? The Wanderer has the most votes so far? I love that song.
"I went out there in search of experience. To taste and to touch and to feel as much as a man can before he repents...Yeah I left with nothing but the thought you'd be there too. Looking for you...Yeah I left with nothing Nothing but the thought of you...I went wandering." Poignant lyrics from a 33 year old. Johnny Cash sings Bono's lyrics like he really knows what he's talking about. Who else but Johnny could sing them...if not for Bono,himself, of course. Sums up the whole ZooTV tour experience if you ask me. Anyway...Some Days Are Better Than Others...for sure.

^ Agree. Though my favorite part is:
"I stopped outside the church house
Where the citizens like to sit.
They say they want the kingdom,
But they don't want God in it."

The whole song has some of Bono's finest lyrics.

The alarm sound to close the album is a fantastic touch. Although it can be annoying when making a playlist.
