This was hard, both lists have songs I love, A has one of my favourite Gene Clark Byrds songs, it introduced me to that Dee Edwards Track, has The End on it, and a great Everlys pick.

But the songs I like on B arrive in sequence -

4. Lazarus - The Boo Radleys
5. If I Was Your Girlfriend - Prince
6. Transparent Day - The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band
7. Guess I'm Dumb - Glen Campbell

..and Guess I'm Dumb is sublime, still.

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

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Should have been the Final.

Tough. Both good, both spoiled by a small number of songs.
A has one fewer rubbish song.

There are a couple of tracks on it I'm not so keen on but many that I love, including that The Clean track - a sunny, sublime slice of Dylanesque pop. You're the list for me,
