Two good lists, which I suppose is to be expected at this stage.

B just edges it, mainly because I hate Born Slippy, everything else just aout cancelling each other out.

A slips by pleasantly enough but its B that grabs you by the throat.

"Birthday" is a great addition.

I go for B

I think I've voted for both these lists, and both have a good mix of styles. I think that B's new additions are especially strong, but I'm still going for A, partly because it would get me up on the dancefloor more.

Splendid lists. Splendid lists. Splendid lists.

If this is indicative of the overall standard to come, we're in for some tough choices.


Erm, hang on. I'll be back. The quality of these songs merits deep thought before a decision is made.

(isn't this exciting?...)

B - but only just. Closest match yet, I'd say. Truly, both individuals have cracking taste and I'd pay 'em good money to DJ at any party I was organising.

A is one I feel I ought to like a lot more than I do, but it's probably just down to a lack of familiarity. Having said that, B is almost too familiar to be interesting, and has a couple of shite tracks, which A doesn't because he hasn't put any Smiths or Bunnymen on yet.

Sister Ray and Sister Sledge? Terrible, terrible. A is really going downhill.

Do I chose B for the better music or A for a free place to crash after the next jolly-up?

I'll come back to this one.

A's list is strong, but the new additions don't do it for me, so on balance, it's B.

Tough. I think A keeps the tempo up that little bit more. Both outstanding though.

B. It's one of my favorite lists that's not mine.
