Track-by-track comparisons: #10 @ 09:00 pm

I'm currently feelin: shocked shocked

OK, there's a surprise - One Tree Hill *isn't* winning yesterday's poll. I can't say I was particularly expecting anyone to vote for the live version of Pride, let alone the majority of people!  Isn't it enough that the studio version already won its poll the other day?!  It's close, though - only five votes between them at the moment - so it could still go either way. Meanwhile, Another Time, Another Place only got ONE measly vote?! :(  I knew I should have voted for that one....

Today's is the last poll before we lose War, TUF and Zooropa, but we'll be carrying on without them!

Poll #583158 Best track #10

This one is definitely the hardest for me, too. "40", Original of the Species, MLK, The Wanderer and Ultra Violet (Light My Way) are all some of my favorite U2 songs.

I've managed to cut it down to "40" and Original of the Species, as both are my favorite songs from their respective albums. "40", though...is too powerful to deny; it almost transcends music itself. Meanwhile, Original of the Species is a fantastic, fantastic pop song with enough hooks for an entire album. :p "40" wins out by a hair.

I saw "40" and said... alright it's "40" then saw "Ultraviolet (Light My Way)" and realized that as much as "40" is amazingly emotional live, I play "Ultraviolet" superloud every time I hear it on AB, because everything just melds perfectly with the vocals and music into something like a spiritual experience. It always lifts my spirits when I play it no matter the mood I am in. Sorry for the ramble. But I'd LOVE to see "Ultraviolet" live since it's one of those rarities on tour.

Special mention for "If You Wear that Velvet Dress" which has the best Bono bedroom growl vocals EVER... argh. :P~~ Just a super sexy song!

UV WHAT?! '40', then Exit, then Electric Co, then MAYBE UV. But no way first. Even though the lightbulb lyrics are my favorite off AB, it doesn't compare to singing HOOOOOW LOOOONGGG ... etc. after a show.

"40" was my first choice, but I just can't say no to an Achtung song.

It was a toss up between god (40) and NYC for me... and I choose NYC.

I am going to hell in a handbasket.

Blah, another hard one. Ultraviolet is great, but it's not "40". :)
