The Creedence song makes up for Suede. I hate Suede and usually vote against any list that includes them. They dodged a bullet, or rightly so, they were were wearing a helmet with the Creedence song.

These are the two best lists; it's a shame they aren't our finalists. I'm going B because B doesn't have Joni Mitchell and B's latest 3 are slightly better, but I'll be sorry to see A go.

I also find a lot to like about both, but I'm going for B too.

Both still solid lists, though neither has quite won me over with the newer picks. Still a lot of good will stored up for both.

Close, but B has a touch more 'outside the box' appeal.

A's most recent picks are ace, but B wins it on consistency.

Is Jeepster enough to swing my vote so late in proceedings? Yes it is. B
