Children Of The Sun is a great choice, but it's A

a..

Groove Armada - At the River (+2 - niiice)
Magazine - Song from Under the Floorboards (0)
The Zombies - Care of Cell 44 (0)
Elvis Presley - You Were Always on My Mind (+1)
Amy Winehouse - Me and Mr. Jones (+3 - fucking great song, massive balls to choose it)
George Clinton - Atomic Dog (0)
Leonard Cohen - Famous Blue Raincoat (+3 - a Len favourite)
Brian Eno - Here Come the Warm Jets (0)
David Bowie - Width of a Circle (0)
Billie Holiday - Loverman (0)

b...

Robyn Hitchcock & The Minus Three- Adventure Rocket Ship (0)
Roxy Music- Streetlife (0)
Roky Erickson- Don't Slander Me (0)
Cymande-The Message (0)
The Stranglers- Goodbye Toulouse (0)
The Misunderstood- Children Of The Sun (0)
T Rex- Children Of The Revolution (0)
Harmonia- Dino (0)
Funkadelic- Funky Dollar Bill (+2 - phew!)
Blues Magoos- I Wanna Be There (0)

Sorry B - looks intriguing but, as you can see, our musical universes just don't match that well. A is also a bit light on stuff I know but that's my own fault and there are a couple of peerless choices.

Tough one - both very good lists. Couldnt decide so I read the posts so far hoping someone would enrage me enough to plonk for one. Unfortunately youre all being puzzlingly reasonable.

Okay - "Famous Blue Raincoat" - thats a hell of a song!

a..

Groove Armada - At the River Don't hesitate and jump ferchristsakes
Magazine - Song from Under the Floorboards Like it out of habit
The Zombies - Care of Cell 44 I'm finding it hard to say anything about the Zombies. They are that good
Elvis Presley - You Were Always on My Mind Elvis is ALWAYS on my mind but generally its for something a little more exciting and less generic than this
Amy Winehouse - Me and Mr. Jones Amy wants me to fuck her. I'd like to with something that wipes the smug grin off her face.
George Clinton - Atomic Dog Top choice
Leonard Cohen - Famous Blue Raincoat You have gone and ruined it now. Whats wrong with Joni or you for that matter?
Brian Eno - Here Come the Warm Jets Equivalent to a fart in a Jacuzzi
David Bowie - Width of a Circle Of all Bowie's catalogue this is the best you can up with
Billie Holiday - Loverman Yes!

b...

Robyn Hitchcock & The Minus Three- Adventure Rocket Ship This is REM backing Hitchcock. Can you imagine the horror?
Roxy Music- Streetlife I love this tune, but pretty much detest everything else they have produced. Except A Song For Europe.
Roky Erickson- Don't Slander Me I wont Roky cos the big bad Baron will tell me off and that wouldn't be right. Your music is a different matter.
Cymande-The Message Words fail me
The Stranglers- Goodbye Toulouse Jesus H! If I want Baroque gumpf I'll listen to Bach
The Misunderstood- Children Of The Sun This is a good song
T Rex- Children Of The Revolution You won't fool me mate
Harmonia- Dino Eurotrash
Funkadelic- Funky Dollar Bill Great
Blues Magoos- I Wanna Be There This band is entirely responsible for Status Quo. I rest my case.

Both lists are similarly uninspiring but B has Funkadelic and The Misunderstood. A has a truly dreadful Bowie choice but B has the Stranglers to offset it. Hard but hell I'm going with Billie

I'm off to the pub tonight so it's very unlikely that I'll be able to score Wednesday night's ties this until tomorrow. However any votes outside of the 48 hour deadline can't be counted.

Thanks!

Agreed. A sad indictment.

Put it down to the A lists always having a slight natural advantage.
