You can tell these are the "studied and tasteful" lists of two wankers, but I'll go for B even though it's obscurantist nonsense.

B for me.
Of course, I was mostly stoned at the time.

A is solid, but a bit too tasteful for me. But B is a varied and spectacular list - in particular, the Shannon track has been dragging me onto the dancefloor for two decades now.

B it is.

Very close, but as A is getting such a pasting at the moment I will go A, cracking first view of the Cocteaus in this competition.

B is a fine list as well and if the Eric B & Rakim track had been the coldcut 7 mins of madness remix of Paid in Full that may have swung it.

Two really good lists here!

A

Who Loves The Sun - The Velvet Underground

Not my favourite VU song by a long chalk but their best "pop" song, if that makes sense. Doug Yule's voice teeters on the edge of parody, as does the overwrought lyric. Not in my top 20, perhaps in my top 100.

Which means it's a +3
Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis - Tom Waits
PASS
I Want to see the Bright Lights Tonight - Richard and Linda Thompson
PASS
Jackass - Beck

My favourite song off Odelay, which will always be kinda special for me. Ironically, it did the folksy country thing better than any of Seachange or Mutations, as worthy as those albums were. Pretty much down to Beck's too asleep to sing vocal, and the Dust Brother's bizzarre production ( a horse neighing?). +4 for sentimental value
Fear is a Man's Best Friend - John Cale
As a fan of Cale, I big up his first name-check on this thread. And this one of my favourites of his. "Life and Death are things that you do when you're born" Fantastic Manzanera guitar lick too, sort of fractured as Cale.
+3

Helicopter - M. Ward
PASS
Up with People - Lambchop

Nice song, good high-stepping rhythm, mumbling voice and sense of loss. Funny, uplifting, great single.
+3
No Man's Land - Fairport Convention
PASS
AM 180 - Grandaddy
It's Grandaddy, but not one I'm familiar with. PASS despite being quite the fan of Sophtware Slump.
Orange Appled - Cocteau Twins
PASS
B

Psychotic Reaction - Count Five
The In Crowd -Ramsey Lewis
Para Lennon Y McCartney - Milton Nascimento
Zoom - The Temptations
Let The Music Play -Shannon
I Know You Got Soul -Eric B And Rakim
Something Is Happening -The Action
Papau New Guinia - The Future Sound Of London
Circles -Fleurs De Lys
Song For Europe - Roxy Music


Now this is difficult the only songs I'm familiar with on this list I love, one of which (Eric B & Rakim) nearly made my list.

The rest of it looks ecelctic as fuck too.

So I don't know what I can do here because it's

16-9, only because of my ingnorance of list B

But then again, it might just Be that one of them has more interest for me.

There we go. Top marks to both, but B it is.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

A for the trifecta of possibly Tom Waits best song, Lambchop and Grandaddy

I know more off B, so I've voted for that. Is that how it works?

These are the four reasons I vote for Sir MArtin

I'm no fan of VU but if I was to choose one song this would be the one. I've been playing the Richard & Linda Thompson and Fairport albums a lot recently so both songs are very familiar and great choices. The Cocteau Twins are the icing on the cake. Irresistable!

OK, my vote goes to A for Tom Waits, Richard and Linda Thompson, Beck and Grandaddy

A honorable mention to B for Milton Nascimento, though.


A it is.

A sane person is hardly going to vote against Papua New Guinea and Song For Europe, are they?

B for me, then.

Can't say I'm terribly familiar with A, but just some of the artists listed suggests it's not particularly my scene.

Not familiar with a fair bit of both lists, but "Song For Europe" & "The In crowd" clinch it. Not to mention the spectacular "Let the Music Play" (must be Griff's list?), which makes it an easy win for:

B
