Nice, beautiful flowing little song. No, it's not U2's best but I still enjoy listening to this every little while. 7.

One of U2's worst songs ever, and it's one of two songs on ATYCLB that I don't have on my iPod. The only positive thing about Grace is the mellow atmosphere it creates. But otherwise, it's just crap. 4.

Gets a 1 because the band showed up and kept time together, deserves a point for that effort, I guess.

Again, I like Edge's guitar here. And it's actually pretty fun to play on guitar, too, if you can get something that closely resembles the tone he used on this track.

Other than that....ehhh.

This might be Bono's worst album.

this poll is a lesson in standard deviation. a statistican would bin this because the result is all over the place.

Very good song. Lovely melody, lovely lyric, nice vocals. Perfect way to close a very spiritual collection.

Actually, the high SD makes this result really useful, in a sense, because it shows how controversial the song is. The final results packet that I'll make will have more information than just the mean scores of each song.

this has got to be set to have the highest sd though, right? i mean, just by estimation. what song has the highest deviation so far? i think this is my favourite round just because the results are so interesting. i can't wait to find out what the sd ends up being.

Right now, Grace has the second highest standard deviation. Elvis Ate America has a slightly higher SD; Elvis Presley and America has a slightly lower SD.

Grace is comfortably situated between two Elvises? I can't say much good about the song, but as a female Grace has something figured out...

The song doesn't bother me too much. It's all about Eno and Edge though.

And that just ain't enough.
