A's gonna win anyway, but I find it a bit scattershot. Love the Elevators, Bonzos and Ruts, but a lot of the rest doesn't really resonate so much.

So I'm going B. I know it hasn't a chance in hell, but I tend to look forward to lists like this every year. And every song on it's at least good, and some of them are great. Can't say that about most of the lists so far.

B even though I'm against narrow themed lists generally. But I'd rather listen to it of the two.

Much as I love C,S,N and Y, I'm voting for A with it's Sinatra addition.
So much good stuff on A's list.

Watertown as staple in the cup as Baby Huey should be.

I have really tried with Watertown. On paper it was built for me - I dig the crap out of that melodic bass driven Webby melodrama. I actually love two or three tunes unreservedly but I keep coming up against the voice. The shade or two below his natural register fakeness of Sinatra's voice. Like your Dad with a few drinks under his belt, aheming before he begins his father of the bride speech.

Still, B can fuck right off.

A.
Good.

To be fair, did you see the list it was up against in the last round?

Why don't you quit right now then?
Or do you need a few more boards to announce this on?
