so THIS is where the good lists got to!

I can't watch everything because of these idiotic German youtube restrictions, but

B

I think edges it, with very fine Stones and garage/r 'n' r selections.

Easily B, one of the best lists so far.

There's some good stuff on A, but most of it's dead dull.

Yeah, eh?

Fook's sakes, I say this every year, but maybe in Germany it's more difficult, dunno.....have you tried typing it in yourself? Works for me - I usually get a version that will play.

I've got these pretty much neck-and-neck - 5/8 aside.

But becuz I'm enjoying Frumious Bandersnatch so much (hadn't heard of this band; nice name), and along with The Golliwogs (hadn't heard this song), that's enuf to break the tie.

Two good lists!


Lots of like on both, and got a good feel to them as quite personal and enjoyable lists.
BB Arnold just gets B over the line.

Holy shit, someone's chosen The Tear Garden, and it wasn't me. Despite it's New Orderiness, it's a work of absolute genius, and almost certainly the best song in this entire competition.

Not finished listening yet, I just got over-excited at the track choice.

*Edit - I'd like to vote for B just on account of the name Frumious Bandersnatch, but I only really like The Golliwogs track there. A is properly patchy, and despite my reservations about picking an obvious classic in "Holiday in Cambodia", it has more to offer.

A isn't thrilling me, except Cat Stevens and I really liked Dick Dale's Pipeline

B is a superb list (with the exception of The Pogues)

Things I like on both of these, but B is more consistent overall.
