War - Song Elimination FINAL
« on: August 30, 2020, 12:11:42 PM »
Vote for what you think is the WORST song on the album, and each round the song with the most votes will be removed, eventually giving us a ranking of the songs on War.

If there is a clear winner and at least 15 votes after a day, I will end the poll there and say what song was eliminated in an edit to this post.  If it's tied or very close or there are under 15 votes after a day, I will let the poll run longer.

Ranking:

1. New Year's Day
2. Drowning Man (58.6%, 17 votes)
3. Sunday Bloody Sunday (50%, 12 votes)
4. Like a Song... (50%, 10 votes)
5. Seconds (57.9%, 11 votes)
6. "40" (35%, 7 votes)
7. Surrender (39.1%, 9 votes)
8. Two Hearts Beat as One (27.3%, 6 votes)
9. The Refugee (38.1%, 8 votes)
10. Red Light (50%, 11 votes)

Well, if that verse is true,
there's hope for me and you.

Easily Red Light for me.  Was once The Refugee, but a friend of mine who I introduce to U2 really likes that one and played it for me a lot to annoy me.  As a result of that, it grew on me lol

I still don't understand the dislike for Red Light. I've always loved it.
Or is it now?

I love it, too...after all that "noise" at the beginning...it's a great song.

not a bad song at all i think the only reason it's getting votes here is because it appears on an album full of giants
