A has all the right boxes ticked. B is a little to Obscuracratic for me. A nice match up, but it's clearly A for me.

A is quite good, but the inclusion of Wire is out of character and sinks the list. B it is.
Wire is really divisive here, eh?
1966 and all that

Still much more likely to win votes than lose them, which is why they keep getting picked.

Both are pretty attractive. B goes a little too '90s chillout MOR near the end while A has a vague feeling of trying to shoehorn groovy world things into a straightlaced classics selection. I liked the Kapoor/Mangeshkar/Bhonsle on A. The Sunday's Child on B is great instrumentally but the vocals are a bit flimsy. Some other relaly good picks there, though. Tough decision. I think I believe in B a bit more. I think it has a little more potential, you know?

I still like A The addition of the seminal Tight Pants only adds.

Not bad lists, but I'm heading for B here, as it has one 90s choice that is pleasantly unexpected.
