In the dreamlife you need a rubber soul. And in the BCB Cup as well so you can keep bouncing back for more abuse year after year. Great track -- I put it on my second mix club cd, and I love it...all in all B is a very BCB cup winning sort of list.

But I just like A more. It flows well and I love Johnny Too Bad, Save it For Later and the pick by Guided by Voices. This is sooooo a Game of Pricks.

both lists can do better, but make it B this time, safe but pleasant enough

B stumbles less.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

It's kinda depressing for a music forum to be proud of not knowing musicians.

There's probably more I love on A but it's let down by some clunkers. Have to go with B for consistency

The opinions of this poster are subjective. That’s how opinions work.

That sums up my thoughts too. A it is.

The strong middle section (Supremes, Dionne, Toys) tipped the scale.
