It's B. At this stage in the game, the Magic Numbers and Streets track are outclassed.


I really have missed this.

1 or 2 out of 64. Fucking jesus. Do you cunts actually listen to music?

Afor the first 2 songs. Although people will probably shit on them because they're not obscure or wanky jazz or what fucking ever you lot bitch about.

Man this thing makes me angry sometimes :twisted:

Both lists are a fuckin' joke. I could just about vote for B beacuse of the Donna Summer track. But I won't.

despite my adoration of "4th of july" and "showgirl", it has to be B.

List A had plenty of good choices (and some awful ones) in round one, but the new tracks are terrible. It's very up and down.

List B is solid but so canonical that I find it hard to summon up much enthusiasm.

A is just more fascinating - it gets my vote for "Real Men", "Walking On A Wire" and "Showgirl", which (along with a couple of others) are collectively enough to drown out the less inspired choices.

While I'm not a huge fan of B's list, I find this a slightly odd comment. I can't see how most of those songs can be described as "canonical". Even Rain, probably the most well known song on there, isn't as well known as many other Beatles songs.

Well it has The Kinks, The Beatles, The Who, The Velvet Underground, Big Star, The Velvet Undeground, Van Morrison...it's full of people who regularly appear on the cover of Uncut magazine. Whilst I'll concede that few of the tracks are particularly overplayed (and, to be fair, I love the Velvets track) and that none of the artists are terrible, I rarely enjoy these acts as much as I should do.

It may be my own fault, but when I see a list full of names like these my heart dips a bit. It just reminds me of finger-wagging lectures from fans of classic rock as to why 'their' music is better than 'my' music. It's my problem, I know.

To be fair to B, though, the Flamingos and Donna Summer selections are inspired (and there's nothing as horrible as The Streets or solo Weller).
