Let me start by saying that for the past two months (thats since Jan 6th) I've had a pleasure hosting the battle of the best of the best of U2. The two songs remaining both come from 2 different decades, that displayed U2 in two completely different ways. Each coming off of two "U2 masterpieces", they both dominated their album, and then their decade in the polls, coming in 1st on everything but never officially went head-to-head against eachother, competing for the most votes.
in the end, it seems that it'll come down to 80s VS. 90s, since both of these songs almost defined the era for U2. Both these songs are still getting exposure from the media. Just last year, in 2006, Tony Blair declared one his favorite of all-time, and the other was used in the criticially-acclaimed Adam Sandler Movie "CLICK".
The voting will begin now and last until the end of the month.
You can vote once each day for any ONE song.
(((haha, i'm loving building up this tension)))
The songs are...
WHERE THE STREETS HAVE NO NAME, from Joshua Tree, 1987
ULTRAVIOLET (LIGHT MY WAY), from Achtung Baby, 1991
