Much though I adore Sing for Absolution, I cannot vote for it against Take a Bow.

05-03-2010, 11:43 AM
I vote in this for Take a Bow, although it is much harder to decide than the other match.

I think Take A Bow will come through and win by 31 votes.

this one was hard...but i voted for Sing For Absolution. just because it's really beautiful song and i listen to it more than Take a Bow.

Sing for Absolution has a sublime haunting beauty to it, so it wins my vote over TaB which I haven't played in a while.

Both of the songs are quite similar as they start quite slowly, before building into something else. I prfer sing for absolution though as it feels like listening to the stars themselves :happy: also it has a kickass video :p

it's hard

Sing for Absolution is what I plumped for...Gives me goosebumps despite never seeing it live!

05-03-2010, 02:55 PM
Sing for Absolution... just.... I can't remember if I have heard it live or not.. too many gigs not enough memory.. I don't think I have... I love TAB great set opener or closer but SFA is just..... :kiss:

05-03-2010, 03:10 PM
TAB is an amazing opener,however I also love SFA,very hard choice.Voted for SFA in the end.

Hard choice... but I voted for Sing for Absolution :D This song is just beautiful :happy:

05-03-2010, 06:37 PM
Take a Bow:D

05-03-2010, 06:57 PM
Defenitely Take a Bow. It's just epic. :happy:

05-03-2010, 07:28 PM

Take A Bow should win the tournament.

05-03-2010, 07:44 PM

To each his own. I personally love it, because I've always felt that way about music. Making music, for me, is as close to a religious experience as I'll ever get.

Sing for Absolution.
Beautiful song and kickass video.

05-03-2010, 08:45 PM
I vote for Take a Bow. Abso has such great songs that SFA is one of my least favorites on the album, and I tend to skip it a lot, though it's not bad at all. TAB, on the other hand, is epic even if followed by freakin' Starlight. :LOL:

05-03-2010, 08:55 PM
Wow, I never picked this to be so even. I thought TaB would take it out comfortably!

05-03-2010, 09:11 PM
Tied it up! I voted for TaB. Tough one, though. Love 'em both!

05-03-2010, 09:26 PM
Wow, in every other tournament I've witnesses, SfA was smashed.

05-03-2010, 09:38 PM
Sing for Sing For Absolution, for absolution!

05-03-2010, 09:59 PM
Let's face it, this match is irrelevant :P

05-03-2010, 11:14 PM
Sing for Absolution barely made it into the tournament after a three-way tie with Apocalypse Please and Falling Away With You, in which it won the playoff. It was never going far.

05-03-2010, 11:32 PM
Take a Bow, obviously.

05-03-2010, 11:58 PM
Take A Bow by miiiilllles! It's a fucking EPIC track! I miss it soooooooo much live. :( It's by far the best opener they've ever had. It shits monkeys on SFA :p.

06-03-2010, 12:46 AM
I was hoping TaB would only just win, but it's not going to happen. :p

07-03-2010, 01:56 AM
This match is such a non-event compared to the other one going on right now :LOL:

07-03-2010, 02:29 AM

Take A Bow should win the tournament.This...it makes me sad to see SFA putting up such a good fight cause if TaB can't even demolish SFA then how is it ever going to win the tournament. :(

Noooooooo links weren't posted to this on the main thread, so I didn't think that there were any going. I normally use Muselive, so I just check the main thread every day.

BUMP,but I was just wondering,when I listen to the Absolution CD,right after Sing For Absolution,it almost sounds like a 3 second clip of a piano playing Take a Bow type chords,then it goes into Stockholm Syndrome.Is it really a early version of Take a Bow or just a coincidence that it sounded like it to me? srry 4 da Bump :p

10-06-2011, 07:54 PM
You just revived a thread that's more than a year old for that question? ^^ Oh well since you already did, SFA>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> TAB

10-06-2011, 08:04 PM
Yup I did,was hopefully looking for an answer on it,and I like both songs,but kinda enjoy Take A Bow more,I like the overdramaticness of it :happy:
