Couldn't really split the list before seeing the new tracks. At last two lists though with additional fives that show they really want to win.

I Want You Back and Breakfast in Bed are great but have been done before. A's additional 5 though are all excellent, Summer Babe being the stand out, which carries the vote.

There's a lot to like in B, but the hits just keep coming in A. I guess that's not true as there are more hits in B, but, well, you know.

Two of the best lists left so far, but I prefer B- with apologies to the other which has its moments, too- not least in Freakscene, Lies, What I Say, What Goes On, Livin' for the City and September Gurls.


We Gotta Get Out Of This Place - The Animals

Overplayed by virtue of far too many Television Commercials, the force of Burdon's delivery is pretty damn hard to deny nonethelss. Trouble is, there's so much emphasis placed on the running away that the next step hasn't been followed through. Besides, they're too caught up in the thought of the idea to care at that very moment- replete with the anticipatory guitar lick before the call. +3

Into My Arms - Nick Cave

Cave the sensitive songwriter, and a real plea for redemption of sorts. Striping away the gothic overkill, it's a simple, heartfelt song that has the temerity to deny an interventionist God, even though it seems his lover has arrived just at the right time. It's all there in the ageless delivery. +3
Breakfast In Bed - Dusty Springfield

Perhaps the most submissive plea for romance Dusty ever recorded, and oddly, the sexiest too. "You don't have to say you love me," she insists, but considering what she's offering it might be best to treat her nicely. Wonderfuly smoky delivery, particularly during the chorus where she blends in with the horns. +4

I Want You Back - The Jackson 5

Greatest bassline ever? That's a toughie, but the strident assurance from a vocalist so young still startles, makes you wonder whether there's something creepy about his devotion. Turns out there was, but that shouldn't detract from the kicking, elastic rhythm, the harmonies stretching beyond breaking point, only to pull back, and the precision-tuned nature of the whole thing, means that it's euphoria made easy +4


Honorable mentions to PiL, Stereolab, Brenda Holloway, Dexy's, "Pretty Vacant" and "Outdoor Miner," "Little Fluffy Coulds"...hell even the stuff I don't know sounds interesting.

As John said, chosing at this stage is pretty tough, all the lists are fairly closely matched.

Sorry A, your's was pretty cool too.

B it is, though
