Really like both these lists, so it's a very marginal B

Tell Me Momma - Bob Dylan

Dylan's opening salvo on the electric half of Live 1966 is also his trickiest and cheekiest. Scanning the words like elastic, (I know that you know that I know that you showed me something), he holds them long enough for everyone to get the joke. Over the Hawks' nastiest R&B, it's no surprise if some found it a little close to the bone +4

Wide Open Road - The Triffids
The eerie bleakness and sense of space makes this a perfect companion to the Go-Betweens' "Cattle and Cane," absolutely mesmerising in its attempt to capture the vastness of the Australian outback. Grogeous +4

How Can You Mend a Broken Heart? - Al Green
Green's most elegant, elegiac sob is also his deepest. Holding, twisting and eventually unravelling his voice, there's little warmth here, but a lot of heart +4

Night Time - Big Star
Chilton's plea for salvation or excuse of his indulgence? Hard to say, but he's lost nonetheless. "Get me out of here". Stark. +4

Hey! Mona Lisa - The Mighty Wah!
Shameless, just shameless. The highreaching chorus, the blather, the manipulative sign off ("Merry Christmas, Elvis!). Hard to believe that anyone in their right mind can get away with this, but he can. Just this once, mind. +3

Born Slippy - Underworld
Astream-of-conscious plea to rid oneself of alcoholism, Born Slippy lurches between euphoria and total meltdown, eventually uncertain whether there's any difference. As Hynde fights against the swirl of the music, it's clear he's doomed, but his feet keep moving +5

Sister Ray - Velvet Underground
Lou at his coolest, and also his grooviest. The chug before the mayhem, or maybe the toke before the injection, if this sleaze is a puton, I'd hate to encounter the real thing. +4

You Wear it Well - Rod Stewart
Rod Sings. Yes he does. At least in this track, which liberally borrows its opening chords from "Starting All Over Again." Not that it matters, as the warm, loose funkiness conjures up enough heart and soul to nearly make us forgive 30 years of music atrocities. God, he was good. +3

Lots of other good tracks as well, in fact they're all great.

Two stunning lists, virtually nothing between them, but A has that extra "something."
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

List A starts off stronger, but then it tails off badly. ('Born slippy' is Oasis for people on pills instead of alcohol, and anyone whose favorite VU song is 'Sister Ray' is just trying too hard.)
So I'm going for B which is more dependable.

I have been pining for Wide Open Road today, and it still has Game Of Pricks. A

Both strong. B for me because of Sugarcubes, Dion and Etta James

A for me is the list that I would prefer to listen to, or that I would skip less tracks on.

Hmm. Two pretty average lists I reckon. It's pretty much Birthday (which was in my original shortlist) v the mighty Born Slippy.

I reckon A just pips it with a smattering of other stuff that simmers away on a higher heat than b.
