SURVIVOR: Can't Quite Reach! (AB - Round 2)

The last round saw an enormous vote split, with 9 different songs receiving votes! The loser was...

TRYIN' TO THROW YOUR ARMS AROUND THE WORLD!!!

LOSER LIST
1. Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around the World

The votes broke down as follows:
Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around the World - 17
So Cruel - 8
Ultraviolet (Light My Way) - 6
Zoo Station/Love is Blindness - 4
Even Better Than The Real Thing/One/Mysterious Ways - 2 each
Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses - 1

Please vote for one of the following:
1. Zoo Station
2. Even Better Than The Real Thing
3. One
4. Until The End of the World
5. Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
6. So Cruel
7. The Fly
8. Mysterious Ways
10. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
11. Acrobat
12. Love is Blindness

Songs with 0 votes so far: Until the End of the World, The Fly, Acrobat

I still vote for Ultraviolet (Light My Way). I am a little miffed that Tryin' to Throw went first cause I love it so much.

Mysterious Ways...........must go.

So Cruel has a lot of soul.

desperation is a tender trap, it gets you everytime

you put your lipps to her lipps to stop the lie


Doesn't get much better then that.

So Creul is one of the best constructed U2 songs period. And it's feeling is only matched ina few other songs. Bah!

Ultraviolet is still the weakest song on the album. Yeah I used to love it. Doesn't stop it from being weaker than the rest.

How the hell is ultraviolet 'weak?' Sounds powerful and very complicated to me both musically and vocally. That's why they don't like to play it live. Other than the first US leg, they never have, and probably won't ever again. It's very much like Acrobat, they go hand in hand IMO.

So Cruel is a timeless, classic song, why it is recieving all these votes is a mystery..As for my choice, "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses?" is clearly the weakest of the songs left (still pretty good though! )

So Cruel

It's a good song, but sounds pretty simple compared to many of the others on AB.

Who cares how simple a song is? If its a good song its a good song..I see So Cruel as one of the centerpiece songs of the album in terms of its lyrics and mood, not to mention one of Bono's finest ever vocals.
