This is hard

B.


Sorry A - just changed my vote on further listen. The Neil Young did it.

This is easy.

B.


Actually, A's not terrible and B's not great, but the new five are spectacular for B, and added to "96 Tears" and "The Message" and "If You Gotta Go", it makes for a pretty easy choice this time.

I'll vote for B. A's list is not very strong to these ears. The Sam Cooke choice is puzzling to say the least.

B. But both lists real mixed bags of shite, sugar and shining stars.

A

There are many strong things on B, but A is very . . . singular. "Don't Worry Baby" puts it over the top. I suspect B will carry the day though, I can see how it could be more varied and more appealing around here.

A

Just hangs together better for me and covers more moods. But B isn't bad

B by quite a distance.

a has some tracks (Search & Destroy, Ocean Rain, Ceremony) that I've certainly loved in my life, but it's all a little stuck in some student angst trip for me. It doesn't have the variety, textures and sheer funkiness I look for.

The best compliment I can pay B is that initially I looked at the list in the first round, liked some of it, but there was a lot of stuff that seemed a bit meaningless to me. But B has strengthened to the degree that I now look at the tracks I don't know and want to hear them. They've sold me on their music taste.

it pains me to vote against a list that has sensational bunnymen and new order songs and for a list that has aerosmith and the tedious mannasas but that monumental final five for B, along with the impressions, muddy waters and grandmaster flash just about swing it for me. B it is then but it was a mighty close thing. sorry, A.

B's last 5 are utterly great but some dodgy early choices mean it will have it's work cut out, especially against either of Match 5's lists. Still, it does enough here.

Very difficult choice for all the wrong reasons. A has "Dont Worry Baby" and that nice Kings Of Convenience song but overall its a bit Dullsville.
B has more of the people I'm loyal to - Elvis, Muddy, John Cale, the Bonzos - even if the choices aren't particularly inspired.

A vote for B.

"The Message" wins it for B
So you're living in Eden where, apples are good
But every narrow miracle, takes place on Earth
Yeah, some militia have arrived and, the percussion has come
And they're pounding out messages loud on the drum

B's list is very good but A has a few of my favorite songs on it.
