I Know It's Over epitomizes "overlooked" for me. I said this in Round 1 two months ago, when I did not rank it in my top 8 songs for the week: "Just relistened to I Know It's Over for the first time since 2012. At the time I didn't like it (or anything by The Smiths), but my impression now is that it's one of their best songs, and there's a good chance I'll vote for it over almost any song in this group after I give it a few more listens." Well, since then I've listened to it about 50 times, and it is easily my favorite song by The Smiths and my favorite song in this group. Thank you to whoever nominated it! I have been a proponent of Dirty Dancing since Day 1, so it's too bad they have to face each other.
