Finals: U2 Singles Survivor - Round Four

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!

Because I'm concerned that 11 O'clock Tick Tock might be voted off, I'm going to hold onto my vote for now just in case I have to use it protectively.

Let's hope WGRYWH or an ATYCLB single goes in this round ...

Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses must be saved. The temple bar remix is probly the best remix of a U2 song. It is a major improvement over the original and majorly improves the quality of the release. Paint It Black and Can't Help Falling In Love With You are 2 of U2's great covers. Salome (Zooromancer Mix) is sexy. Two Hearts Beat as one should have never been a single. The B-Sides add nothing that Sunday Bloody Sunday already has, while WYGRYWH adds tons of great stuff.

I think they're all ashamed they voted for a single with a b-side as good as Endless Deep.

I already commented on it a couple of times (as this is the gazillionth time I'm voting for it).
As someone said earlier, there's nothing on this single that isn't on the Sunday Bloody Sunday single too. But SBS is a way better song that this mediocre result of trying to be funky.

*wonders why Sweetest Thing was voted off *

BTW, why has the great Walk On single have to go?
