SURVIVOR: You people are ridiculous. (AB - Round 3)

The last round saw my second favorite AB song voted off. The loser was...

SO CRUEL!!!

LOSER LIST (and it pains me to type this out)
2. So Cruel
1. Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around the World

The votes broke down as follows:
So Cruel - 18
Zoo Station - 10
Ultraviolet (Light My Way) - 7
Mysterious Ways - 6
Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses - 5
One - 3
Even Better Than The Real Thing - 2
Until the End of the World/Love is Blindness - 1 each
TOTAL: 53 votes

SOMETHING TO TAKE NOTE OF: People (no names mentioned), I know you are voting for One because it is the overwhelming favourite to win. But PLEASE don't vote for a song just because it is the favourite! Some of you may also be voting for it simply because you don't like this game and it's out of spite. If you don't like the game, you don't need to vote, so please don't. I'm doing this for everyone's enjoyment and ruining the game for others is not helping. Vote for what you think is the weakest song. Please. Also, don't vote for a particular song because you think it's overplayed. Vote for it because of your opinions of the song's merits, not simply because it's overplayed. Thank you for your cooperations.

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
7. The Fly
8. Mysterious Ways
10. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
11. Acrobat
12. Love is Blindness

I still say Ultraviolet (Light My Way). Bastards.

i would just like to say i'm not voting for one for any of the reasons you mentioned. i've been voting since round one of boy, so obviously i don't mind voting. i don't see it as something i'm being forced to do. sorry i do think it's the weakest. you're welcome to disagree of course but that's my opinion.

I'm sorry about your favorites getting voted off I know how it is, my favorites are always hated, like ISS, RHMT, and now Ultraviolet. It's honestly the prettiest song on the album, and my favorite AB song, and I don't know why anyone would hate it. The problem with this album is, nothing is bad! It's not like Refugee and Red Light, or EP an America and Fourth of July that were obvious choices. I wonder how fast Miami and Playboy Mansion will go on Pop, or Grace on ATYCLB? But with AB there really is no weak song, only preferences.

I voted for MW last time, and I was going to again. But after what you posted, out of respect for the rules and fairness of the game I won't vote for it just because it's so overplayed and I'm tired of it, like you said. I will go with what I think is the weakest song left, though I have nothing against it.

Zoo Station

First of all, Well put. There are some people who are just making it difficult.

Second of all, I can't see how someone can think "One" is the weakest song on the album. If anything, it's the strongest song anyone has ever written. But, as the golden rule of this forum, "People are entitled to their opinions, and should be respected for them." It's just music, not anything to take personal and get bent out of shape about.

Third of all, I vote off Zoo Station.

Well said DavidC. I cannot believe So Cruel was voted a weaker song than 'Wild Horses, Acrobat, Zoo Station, Ultraviolet (although all four are superb tunes) for instance..incredible. Oh well




This round..I vote 'Wild Horses, the most formulaic song on the album.

I'm still voting for...

Mysterious Ways

Can I think it's the weakest song because it's overplayed and it does nothing for me anymore? To tell the truth, I strongly disliked it when it was a single. Not trying to cause problems here, but this album is going to be tough to vote on, and I'm just going with what I feel. Especially with this album, there can be no 'right' answer. Otherwise, why would we vote?

Anyway, I'm really enjoying the game, Dave, even when my fave songs aren't doing so well. Keep up the good work.

Dave, I greatly enjoy this. I've voted on nearly every round, and every time I've missed one, I've been rather annoyed at myself. I could never vote off a song because it's overplayed or whatever - I've been voting on my personal opinion and how much it's played doesn't have any bearing on what I think of the song. I don't listen to the radio much anymore anyway.

So for this round ... I'm tossing between Zoo Station and Even Better Than The Real Thing. Hmmm ... Zoo Station gets my vote.

This is all about opinion. Personally, it's my least favorite track on the album. Please don't make assumptions about people's voting...this is all in fun.

i agree. i can't believe so many people, including the creator of all of this (who has been saying all along "No personal attacks whatsoever. It's perfectly ok to disagree, and even to speak up if you disagree with a person's choice or their reason for doing so, but remember.. it's only a game."
