Tough one, I know.

As much as I love Alone Again, Walk Away is just searing and, IMO, one of the greatest ballads of the era.

As much as I despise "ballads" I actually enjoy "Alone Again".  Probably due to some sentimental memories I attach to the song but that's my vote.

"Alone Again" is absolutely amazing! Especially the acoustic live version from the "One Live Night" DVD.

'Alone Again' thou that maybe the song to blame for the 100000 power ballads I had to endure in the big 80's

I should've put the version of Alone Again off of Beast from the East as an option. Certainly is my preferred version.

Hmmm. Not really crazy about either one. I guess "Alone Again." I like the shot of the General Lee on the TV in that video.

'Alone Again', but mostly because I knew that one right off the bat. I had to play the 'Walk Away' video before I thought "Oh yea, now I know it". It's not a bad tune, but a little more sappy than 'Alone Again'. Both tunes are alright with me though.

Not hard at all. "Walk Away" is a good song, but "Alone Again" blows it away.

Hmm. I walk alone on this one...but I only find Walk Away to be better quality by an inch. Maybe a half-inch.

Granted, if I would've included the live version of Alone Again in the poll, I would have selected it.
