Finals: U2 Singles Survivor - Round Six

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 holding onto my vote for now. It seems 11 O'clock Tick Tock might need some protecting. Sure, the studio recording isn't great, but it's definitely not the worst single left.

I think Stuck... is a great single with very good live B-sides of Beautiful Day, New York, EBTTRT and All I Want Is You (that was a beautiful French limited edition BTW ) And Big Girls Are Best is a fun outtake too.

Sometimes You Release A Bad Single on the other hand...

Damn, you're right. Why is it still hanging around?

I'd vote for it, but I fear I need to hold onto my vote for now to protect 11 O'clock Tick Tock.

I Will Follow is U2's best song ever and it's complemented with 2 solid live tracks. Why can't it stay then?
There are far worse singles still on the list (like Sometimes... )

Real b-sides are better than some live cuts, especially of the rather unspectacular (I call it 'shallow but enjoyable') Boy/Girl.

I'm shocked that two of the Achtung Baby singles have already been booted off. It's a crazy world.

Wild horses is one of their lyrical masterpieces, it sure doesn't deserve this.

I find it disconcerting that those who are voting for 11 O'Clock have not spoken up at all.

Hey Axver, kill two birds with one stone - Protect 11 O'Clock Tick Tock(a VERY worthy cause) and vote for Stuck In A Moment in one bold stroke!

I take this shit too seriously.
