Original Soundtracks 1 - Song Elimination Round 13
« on: September 21, 2020, 11:25:00 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 Original Soundtracks 1.

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:

3. Always Forever Now (50%, 6 votes)
4. Slug (33.3%, 4 votes)
5. United Colours (66.7%, 8 votes)
6. A Different Kind of Blue (50%, 4 votes)
7. Beach Sequence (50%, 6 votes)
8. One Minute Warning (66.7%, 4 votes)
9. Theme From Let's Go Native (50%, 5 votes)
10. Corpse (These Chains Are Way Too Long) (37.5%, 3 votes)
11. Plot 180 (50%, 4 votes)

Time for me to listen to the album and decide if there's anything worse than Elvis Ate America.

I'm relieved to report that Elvis is indeed the worst song on OS1.

I voted Elvis because it's terrible.  Clearly any U2 song with "Elvis" and  "America" in the title is just cursed and should never be heard.

To my knowledge, U2 has only one song with Elvis in the title.

I hate to not be a contrarian for once and vote for Elvis. There's not a bad song here.
