    Default Song Battles round 10 - U2 (round over)

    I thought this was a lot of fun before. Let's get it going again. I picked something pretty mainstream so more people could participate.

    For those who need a refresher, I'll pick eight songs, pair them off, and you eliminate one from each pair. Winners from each round are paired off, and so on.

    1a) Sunday Bloody Sunday
    1b) New Year's Day

    2a) With Or Without You
    2b) Where the Streets Have No Name

    3a) Mysterious Ways
    3b) One

    4a) Pride (In the Name of Love)
    4b) Beautiful Day

    Eliminate:

    1b) An OK song, but Sunday Bloody Sunday is a killer

    2b) Are you kidding me? With or Without You is one of the best songs ever written, and performed beautifully. In fact, it better win this bitch.

    3a) Never liked this song.

    4b) In the Name of Love is a great song from when U2 was at the top of their game. Beautiful Day is just radio filler.

    Where The Streets Have No Name and Pride (In The Name Of Love) are the names of those two songs AFAIK.

    Song titles fixed. I knew that, too. I shouldn't start these when I've been drinking.

    Only one there that was really tough was (4), I really like 'Beautiful Day' but 'Pride' is just ultimately the better song.

    (ps w00t Myrna, seriously, 'With Or Without You' really is one of the best songs ever, isn't it? You have such excellent taste!)

    Wait, I listed the ones I like. Am I supposed to be listing the ones I hate? I don't understand, I'm voting FOR all the (a) choices. I don't think that's how this worked last time, is it?

    Yeah, before we were picking out the songs we were voting FOR. Sorry the OP was confusing.

    Free at last, they took your life
    But they could not take your pride.

    Wait, are you keeping those, or throwing them out? Please everyone be extremely specific on this point because Taumpy did this contest the opposite way of previous ones.

    Keep

    1b) With Or Without You DUH

    2b) Pride (In the Name of Love)- I'm not one of the One haters. I think it's a great song. But Pride is better.

    But both are fine choices.

    I don't think a single song I've voted for so far has advanced.

    So, in the spirit of reverse psychology: keep "Pride (In The Name Of Love)."
