Has to be A. It's only failing is the inclusion of the horribly bland Alison. Great Byrds selection.
B is a real mix, but with The Archies, The Wedding Present and Doris Day they've picked some of the worst stuff seen so far. The Sugarbabes aren't much cop either, I think people almost pretend to like their stuff in a kind of reverse pop snobbery, but the truth is they're very forgettable.
An easy victory for A

A

B was going along fine until I saw the 5 new songs. Good selections from A wins it.

Two really good lists and two sets of good idiosyncratic subs. the doris day tune in particular was great to see. B had a really nice mix of top stuff. someone who likes all sorts of great stuff by the look of it

I'm not a weddos fan though and i can't find anything else to seperate them.

so A

A played a blinder with his subs (William Bell's a cracker) and, other than the inspired Sugababes selection, B's possibly been down the karoake pub too much lately judging by his/her additional choices (not that I'm saying there's owt wrong wi' that, mind).

It all turned on the sixpence that is .... Cattle and Cane.

Did i say "A"?

On the original ten, B would have won it by a mile. The 5 new ones seemed very strange choices to me at first glance but after further reflection I now realise I actually like them as well.

Still B by a mile.

A shows a full house with the five new ones. And I don't even know the Nick Lowe tune (but I imagine it must be quite good if it hangs out with those other four).

B has some real toss but it also has more really great stuff than A.

I would grab A off the shelf before B. It sparked my curiousity.

B, for the balls to include Kylie & Sugababes (might be due to the fact that I'm listening to Annie now).

Round two is, perhaps unsurprisingly, seeing good list versus good list. In this case :

B wins for me.
