Clash - Straight to Hell
Go-Betweens - Cattle and Cane
Talking Heads - This Must Be the Place

And what a trump card!

my arcane marking system makes it:

Mr Tapioca Head wrote:
list a......

115 points

list b.....

119 points

which kind of surprised me, actually. i seem to be voting for a list which has the cars and split enz in it and against the damned, the temptations, wreckless eric and the impressions. in that sense, it doesn't seem right, really, but.....

Expected a close game, but it turned into a rout, with A breezing through to a massive 5-1 victory.

Like others, I've decided to devise a score system for such a prestigious occasion and it's come out 105-101 to B.

You know, I love parts of both lists dearly...and I think A is more consistent. But there is something about the way B grabs me. I know this is ridiculous and such, and I know I'm liable to turn. But it will have to B that way.

You never know I might change my mind. Be prepared for one of song-by-song scoring things. It's only be right

A tentative B
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

B is loses my vote on "Ashes To Ashes" alone.

Really, really close, but these supersubs win it for me:

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Who'll Stop the Rain?
Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees
Sigur Rós - Svefn-G-Englar

Where have you been hiding these, fella?

Typical Scottish performance, snatching defeat from the hands of victory...

Still, 2 finals in one year Steve!
