Rattle & Hum - Song Elimination FINAL
« on: September 06, 2020, 01:13:40 AM »
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 Rattle & Hum.

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. All I Want Is You
2. Hawkmoon 269 (58.3%, 14 votes)
3. Desire (55.6%, 10 votes)
4. Heartland (45.5%, 10 votes)
5. Angel of Harlem (28%/60.7%, 7 votes/17 votes)
6. God Part II (40.9%, 9 votes)
7. Van Diemen's Land (44%, 11 votes)
8. When Love Comes to Town (45%, 9 votes)
9. Bullet the Blue Sky - Live (57.9%, 11 votes)
10. Silver and Gold - Live (30%, 6 votes)
11. Love Rescue Me (28.6%, 6 votes)
12. Pride (In the Name of Love) - Live (30%, 6 votes)
13. Helter Skelter - Live (36.4%, 8 votes)
14. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - Live (30.4%, 7 votes)

All Along the Watchtower, thoroughly unremarkable version with annoying vocals and changed lyrics.

Alright who are the heathen traitorous scum who voted Hawkmoon and Desire?! Hand in your fan cards now.
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

Also personally apologize to Riffy.

Wait until Riffy sees someone voted Hawkmoon!

I’ve seen for myself, there’s no end to grief, that’s how I know, and why I need to know that there is no end to love

Freedom for My People. Its the easy choice in this round. PS, Im pretty sure the guy who played Harmonica on this, is/was on the U2 Friends group on Facebook.

Freedom For My People.  Appreciate putting in the covers and live versions as that will delay some tough decisions for me.  :)
