I voted for B in the last round I think, but the Everly Brothers, Jurassic 5 and Coasters tracks swings this comfotably to A.

I'm going for A. Not a revenge vote because B knocked me out I just don't like B that much. Triffids and Funkadelic are fine even though both were starting to look like "safe" picks by year 2 of the cup. A certain ratio has a kind of "funk lite" feel to it. I mean if you are going to pick funk.......

Opeth are total shit and I just don't get Gainsbourg. If someone "sung" like that in English you'd laugh so hard you'd piss yourself. And just to temper the negaitivity , Boops is a grteat choice. A is not without its problems but still

Reparata & the Delrons is just one of many reasons why I vote A. B is asking to be voted out by sticking to Opeth.
1966 and all that

Close one. A's J5, Everlys & Coasters picks are all gold, and the Tammi Lynn thing is great and completely new to me. However, I'm going to go with B. Sheila's fab, that One Dove thing was random and poppy and enjoyable, and the whole list just seems a bit more, um, bouncy.

I'm going for A even though I hate the Godfathers and love Modern Eon. A is really good.

B's. final five is bloody strong, and enough to take this one handily
