I actually REALLY liked these lists.
A bumped me out (savage.) ((but probably deserved it)) but I think I may ACTUALLY prefer B.
Everyone should pack themselves on their own backs though. I'm entertained.

Pretty sure I voted for A last round, but I've liked B more all along.

A is fun but I'd be hitting the skip button pretty often. B looks a bit like a computer analysis program has put together a BCB Cup list, but there's not a lot to fault.

But wait, I didn't vote yet. The tide could turn. . .

I don't think the real music lovers have weighed in.

DEEPER Shade of Soul, sloop. Deeper!

Nice one, man! Well, except for this round.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I might like Sabotage actually. It is growing on me. :lol: :oops:
If it does take I will be able to blame you for it De La Soul and Eminem in my music collection John. You are far more influential to me than you might think! :D

Cheap trick and the Ramones kicked 9 kinds of shit out of most of the other list, but I just really like Dead End Street and Satellite of Love... Your list was much more kick ass than your opponents though -- absolutely more ballsy. Their list was VERY bcb friendly....it will probably go on to win this thing with it's bland, inoffensive offerings for balding fat brits.

I liked it better than mine too. That's why I didn't vote for mine. I'm a pretty transparent guy - it's all Beastie Boys and 7-11 pizza for me.
