I'm not blown away by either list, but despite the fact it knocked me out in the previous round I'm going to vote for B.

I would have fancied my chances of winning this tie too, you know. Cloth lugged gits.

B

I like some things in A's list (Johnny Thunders, JAMC, Curtis M., "Moonlight Mile,") but I'm a bit put off by "Here," "Holocaust," and "Amsterdam." "I Saw The Light," along with the Small Faces and Stone Roses edges it for me.

i rang my mum and she said that in cases like these she always uses the "least obvious of the great singles" rule which led me straight to "duchess", of course. A it is. thanks mum.

I voted against it in the first round but I do like A. 'Common People' is a great choice.

Because that's the populist way to progress. Cosmopolitanism in music.

Despite the occasional clunker, A's a strong list.

Matty probably meant to say minus 10.
