It seems so long ago that we were doing this that i can't remember who A or B are, or indeed the strengths of their original lists.
It's B for the great Chic and Velvets selections.

A

I absolutely love the Ray charles track, and the chic and shangri-las ones were good choices without quite being in my top whatever. But Newman annoys and it's not one of my favourite VU tracks despite being perfectly ok

A strong list but not quite a shootout winner for me

It's not the actual title of the Dre song, part of me wonders whose error that was and whether it means it's not really that stuck in the guys mind. But it's a good track and a brave choice. It's one of my few favourite who tracks, a good bowie choice and I like the Lips track a fair bit.

Close but A took more risks and seems like i'd like his tastes more. No idea who it is though

A for Bowie, "Baba", and the Lips. Some nice stuff from B, but these were powerhouses.
