I didn't want to vote for A, but B is even worse.


Is this the second list with 'Hit the North' on it? What's up with that?

Very close, some weak choices diluted his original 10 and it was hard to vote against quite a few of As choices.

B, but must do better next time

Very, very hard. A has plenty of my favourites, but is perhaps a little too narrow focussed on (admittedly excellent) classic and alt-rock styles. But what choices - spine-tingling tracks a-plenty.

B is also very good, but casts its net wider to good effect. Not everything is great, though - I never liked that Springsteen song and I would have gone for a different Public Enemy track.'s B by a whisper, partly due to the fact that it had two tracks from my own doomed list. I feel it would overall hold my attention better.

Good contest, this one.

A bores me totally like some classic alt-rock xfm playlist.

It has to be B.

Two good lists. B by the smallest of margins.

B just

B, even though the last 5 choices aren't listed like the first 10. I mean starting with a song/artist list and then switching to artist/song? What's that all about? :roll:

Aimee Mann's finest hour shades it for B.

Jesus - voting for a list with the Smiths in - this whole concept is sick I tell you, sick.
