Are none of the girls playing? Or is this just too geeked out for them?

B, by the way.

A close run thing but the inclusion of Strawberry Fields Forever swings my vote in A's favour.

You mean the "inclusion of SFF in list B", right?

Clearly it's B. Far more interesting selection, IMHO.

There's some great tracks in B, but A gets my vote.
He's a simpleton. 200 years ago they wouldn't have let him milk a cow.

A is a creative force while B is all out of metaphors.

Two songs by the same artist suggests either a great love for Jimmy Cliff or a very small record collection.

It's B, I'll fill this post out with reasons at a later date when I don;t have a 2000 word essay to complete within 48 hours.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

A is just too safe for my liking, especially compared with the quality of of B's subs.

A is a more coherent list but I really hate the Zeppelin and Genesis tracks.

B because it's got What Goes On and Reach Out.....
