    Voted Hurt. Surprised to see it trailing.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    I would have voted for the NIN version instantly. I am still very glad to see some of Trent's lyrics in the tournament either way.

    In the Air Tonight. I like Johnny Cash - I grew up listening to my Mom playing his records - but I absolutely can't stand Hurt.
