Finals: U2 Singles Survivor - Round Nine

is now open. Please vote by clicking in the circle next to the single you like the LEAST on the electronic poll above. Thank you.

Please be aware that you are voting on the WHOLE single release, not the individual a-side. In the same way that album survivor involved whole albums with their full complement of tracks competing against each other, singles survivor will involve whole singles with their full complement of tracks competing against each other.

This is a TWO day timed electronic poll.

Instructions:

Voting

Each round please vote off the single you like the least. The single with the most amount of votes is the the least popular for this round. Voting is anonymous. It's not compulsory to state your preference in the thread.

Next round all the singles are listed again, minus the single that receives the most amount of votes this round. And again please vote for your least favourite single from the selection.

And on we go for many rounds until there's only two singles left. In the last round you vote for your favourite out of the two. The last single standing is the most popular (or the least unpopular depending on how you look at it).

Tie Breaker

In the event of a tie, both or all tied singles will be instantly eliminated from the competition.

Have fun!

I'm going to maintain my thoughts that the final four will be Where The Streets Have No Name, With Or Without You, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, and One. This thought line is due to my opinion of these four all being extremely strong A-Sides with multiple strong B-Sides.

Luminous Times, Walk To The Water, Spanish Eyes, Deep In The Heart, Silver And Gold, The Sweetest Thing, Race Against Time, Night And Day, Satellite Of Love, and Lady With The Spinning Head happen to be among my favourite B-Sides.

This is, however, an opinion. But I will be shocked if it's not so.

I think we'll see UF instead of One. At least, I hope it's one of UF or Pride. My personal ranking of U2's singles:

1. The Unforgettable Fire
2. Pride
3. With Or Without You
4. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
5. Where The Streets Have No Name

Luminous Times and Spanish Eyes are my favourite b-sides, but are unfortunately split between singles. I find Walk To The Water and Deep In The Heart to be good, but not great.

I don't think One is all that great. Lady With The Spinning Head is fantastic, but Night And Day and Satellite Of Love are covers - and the former is a remix of a cover! Great single but not top five material.

i would add Beautiful Day to that list.

Very strong A side and two very good B-side tracks in the form of Summer Rain and Always......

IMO... if I Will Follow walks away... Electrical Storm will follow...

I can't believe people are going after Walk On which has both the fantastic lead... but the best version of Stuck and equally as valid live tracks as Electrical Storm...

It actually suprises me that Electrical Storm has flown under the radar for so long. Check out the singles we've thrown off and tell me you treasure youre Electrical Storm single more than some of those?

I feel guilty for not voting this sooner....I owe 11 O'Clock an apology... But first... I gotta vote for Electrical Storm.

Oh and I think The Fly & All I Want Is You are darkies to sneak into that top 5 bracket.

Sometimes... had to lose last round!

I Will Follow is U2's best song (and the single had some excellent live tracks too!).

So it is Sometimes... again and again and again.

So it seems that maybe THIS will, at last - be Vertigo's turn for the chop!

How the hell is "Out of Control" better than "Vertigo"?

I disagree. Always is not very good. And the chords are exactly the same as Beautiful Day.
