a...
Everlasting love - Love Affair
Happy together - The Turtles
Echo beach - Martha & the Muffins
Daydream believer - The Monkees
Virginia plain - Roxy Music
Here, there & everywhere - The Beatles
Night boat to Cairo - Madness
What becomes of the broken hearted - Jimmy Ruffin
The time has come - Chambers Brothers
Guns of Brixton - The Clash
Pulling mussels (from the shell) - Squeeze
Magic carpet ride - Steppenwolf
Dancing barefoot - Patti Smith
The dark don't hide it - Electric Magnolia Co
California love - 2 Pac

b...
Poetry & Jazz = John Otway
I Dont Wanna Go Home = Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes
Into The Mystic = Van Morrison
I've Been Out Walking = Tim Buckley
Stay Free = The Clash
Teenage Kicks = The Undertones
Hope There's Someone = Antony & The Johnsons
Atmosphere = Joy Division
Rogue Waves = Terry Reid
The Thoughts of Mary Jane = Nick Drake
My Girl = Otis Redding
Only Makes Me Laugh = Oingo Boingo
When You Walk In The Room = The Searchers
Pidgin English = Elvis Costello & The Atractions

WOW two more great lists...and shockingly I am voting against terry reid for the second time today, as I love Dancing Barefoot and and dislike Antony so much - the Nick Drake didn't help either. I hate wimp rock. A
the Eagles suck.

Shoulda taken a dive in round 1 ;)

As much as it pains me to vote against Oingo Boingo AND Elvis, the other 13 or so songs don't inspire, whereas A had a good list in the first place, then stuck Magnolia Electric Co and Tupac at the end. Bravo!

A

A is a very 'poppy' list, and I mean that as a compliment. B has good highs but some troughs too.

A gets it for consistency, and for the fact it would get me dancing. (Sorry, Prez...)

B levelled up but really did fade noticeably down the straight, didn't it?

This really isnt sour grapes but how did either of these two lists get through the first round? Is "The Time Has Come" supposed to be "Time Has Come Today"? And who would chose the Love Affair over the Robert Knight original?

For having the right names (if the wrong tracks) I'll go for B.
