Finals: U2 Singles Survivor - Round Ten

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!

Dear voters,

It would be really nice if we could have another draw and kick off SYCMIOYO and Electrical Storm. How about a three-way tie and kick off Stay too?

Sincerely,
Axver

Hee! I've actually held back on my campaigning for some stuff as I wouldn't want to be seen to be abusing my position as maintainer of the competition.

I did in prior competitions, or I would at least look at votes already cast so that I could make sure nothing I like was being kicked out.

At this stage, I'm holding onto my vote because I'm afraid of something I really like being kicked.

No, it was the same 'flying hearts' cover. It was a carton slipcase though.



And Pero, you should've voted for SYCMIOYO.

Out of Control. Boy/Girl is a nice rarety, but let's face it -- it's hardly a good song. Certainly not worthy to belong among the other B-sides still out there.
