Hello Hello!!


September 29th, 2005

Track-by-track comparisons: #5 @ 08:55 pm

canadanne:
I'm currently feelin: surprised surprised

Bloody hell, I did *not* expect Walk On to have so much support in yesterday's poll - I thought it would come about third or fourth. My guess was Until The End Of The World would win, closely followed by The Unforgettable Fire and Lemon (not necessarily in that order). So that's the first surprise for me in these polls.

Time to pick your high five today...

Poll #580008 Best track #5

What's the best track #5 on a U2 album?

Out Of Control
12(6.0%)
Fire
0(0.0%)
Drowning Man
6(3.0%)
Promenade
3(1.5%)
Running To Stand Still
49(24.5%)
All Along The Watchtower
0(0.0%)
Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
31(15.5%)
Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
28(14.0%)
Staring At The Sun
15(7.5%)
Kite
17(8.5%)
City Of Blinding Lights
39(19.5%)
Personally I found this to be the easiest one yet. I quickly narrowed it down to about two or three songs and then managed to reason my way to a decision without too much pain!

For the record, I picked City Of Blinding Lights. I didn't go for Stay because it took a few listens for that one to grow on me, and although Running To Stand Still is an amazing song, it's better live. It's quite simple on the album, so I think COBL is more musically impressive (for that intro alone!).

*frets* I am pathetic and find none of these easy. I'm resolving to just be happy that I apparently have so many songs that I love. Good music and lots of it is never bad *G*

Oh, for sure none of them are easy... I love everything!  I just found this one a lot easier to pick than the previous few.

That icon makes me giggle every time I see it.

I didn't find this one easy at all! I LOVE Out of Control, Running to Stand Still, Staring at the Sun & Wild Horses, but I decided to go for Running to Stand Still. Simply because that must have been one of my first absolute favorite U2 songs :D

For me, the most difficult one yet! I wrestled with them all, except Fire and Staring at the Sun. Ultimately went with Stay.

Same here. Ever since WGRYWH was taken out of my U2 catalogue permanently.
::shakes fist at Bono::
I hate you!

Stay is so vocally beautiful. The "ooo-ooo" parts get me every time.

This was sooo hard for me. I decided to go with Kite because its been hitting a nerve with me lately. In five minutes, I will wish I picked something else..

I found this one to be the hardest. OOC, RTSS, S(FSC), COBL, Kite, So good. I have this theory that bands choose the best song for number 3, but I may have to scrap that theory.

If anyone cares, I ended up going with RTSS

I so nearly voted for Drowning Man - I was reading through the options thinking "this is easy!" ... and then I saw City Of Blinding Lights. COBL is, in my opinion, the best song since Heartland and I rank both above Drowning Man. So it's obvious what I voted for.

For me it's between "Out of Control," "Running to Stand Still,"--both have very special meaning to me--and "City of Blinding Lights."

I think I'm going to go with RTSS, but I know everyone will pick that.

This was pretty easy. I did have to pick between Running To Stand Still, Stay, and City of Blinding Light, but it wasn't really that hard for me. RTSS and Stay are both very good, very pretty, but neither of them are as good as COBL. IMHPO, COBL ranks up there right behind Streets as my favorite song.
