Gnat's whiskers breadth here.... it's B for me, because, um, it's slightly less one-note, although I really like at least half of A. But, A's got XTC...so it's definitely

B.

I like both these lists in the way I like chicken and vegetable soup - and that's very much and sincerely. But the only thing which really gives me a rush is the Public Enemy and Donna Summer in B.

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.

Ohhh...it'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.


Hopped up on flu medicine, I can only agree with the above. B
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

:? about 35-40%, i suppose. too many lists are very 60s, wouldn't you say?

(and i don't necessarily exempt myself from that criticism)

I can't remember the last time I voted for a winning selection, so given I voted for b here I'm sure that tally is right. I'm feeling very out of step with the tastes of BCB. :(

honestly you guys, how could you have gone for A over a list that had this glorious run:
Drive-In Saturday David Bowie
Love To Love You Baby Donna Summer
Harlem shuffle Bob & Earl
Safe From Harm Massive Attack

I despair over you lot, I really do.

20-19 to A is right

Congrats (I was B)

If I'd got here in time I'd have voted B. Sorry.
