I liked that Dwight Twilley song. Didn't see that coming.

Both of these lists are a bit wacky. I like and dislike both of them equally but I think B has started to lose steam while A promises to keep bouncing off the wall.

I hate to vote against Honeybus and The Zombies but I'm feeling A more. Despite liking a lot of power pop I've never really got Dwight Twilley but the other picks are fine. Disappointed with the Dionne pick though, she did way more than this and San Jose.

Not too keen on the 3 new ones, but B remains the winner here.
