Both good lists. There are a few songs that aren't really my cup of tea on B though, so it's gotta be A.

Fuck, these are good. B knocked me out, and the YLT and Cure songs aren't among either band's best, while A has Starry Eyes. A.

I'll Vote for A. A couple of choice tracks swung it in A's direction.

Fancy listening to list B right now (with a toilet break during the Waterboys). A is just.......well, a list of songs.

I go for B

Aside from the Spencer Davis Group selection, B does nothing for me.

Again, two fine lists. I like the scope of B, but I can't ignore A - it contains too many of my favourite songs.

For continually pushing my pleasure buttons, it's A.

B's good, but A's a cracker

A has a combination of very good - Specials, Pulp The Supremes, crushingly average - Clash, Nick Cave and Magazine, and shockingly poor - Stranglers, Cheap Trick and Johnny Thunders.
I've not heard the Pavement track so I can't comment on that other than to say I have not listened to any Pavement track, ever, as I detest the whole idea of them.
B is freakish in that someone who is obviously has good points by liking Massive should then ruin the entire list by putting up the Waterboys and The Cosmic Rough Riders as equal to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Astonishing.
A by default. B needs therapy.

Easily A for me. 'Stoned Love' alone embarasses almost everything else on B's list. It does a few keep ups, rounds the keeper and does a little jig to celebrate.
