B looks like more fun to me. A's OK though.

B for me. A is a bit 'library of rock'.

Two really nice lists. Toughest choice for me yet.
But A wins in with Into The Mystic.

B's more fun, all told. So it gets my vote. A's fine and has its moments but doesn't have the same energy.

Edit: I'm almost having second thoughts about this, as I spotted two of my alltime favourites on the other list.

Yes I agree.

Despite Fortunate Son A seems a bit boring (as others have noted) so it has to be B, even though it's not entirely my cup of tea.

Some nice new additions by A (Creedence and Peej, in particular) but I think B's a better bet: the Wire and Byrds are unimpeachable, the Dillinger, Stereolab and Clash tracks are all fantastic too. And, as Owen notes, no Van or XTC.

Two great lists, and I really don't want to choose one ... but I need to go with B.

A is very strong list to these ears. My vote is for A running away.

The closest yet for me. If the Van had been Mystic Eyes instead, my vote might not have gone to B.

B. But then again, there's a fair few dodgy selections on there. Maybe A. Hmmm.
