A nails at least three songs that I would include in any list of my absolute favorites with "Darling Be Home Soon," "Hot Burrito #1" and "Just My Imagination". If they'd have gone with "Never My Love" instead of "Along Comes Mary," they'd have hit a 4th.

B's list is good, but it never had a chance.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I love 'Itchycoo Park' enough at the moment to consider it swaying me. But I love 'Just My Imagination' even more and it's given ample support from Ghostface and Ray Charles.

B, despite the Pink Floyd track.

Holy Cow. Someone picked one of my alltime favorite songs.

It's gotta be A

Quoting the Coan-meister. Excellent stuff on B, A just shades it.

If whoever A is has more songs like that for the next round, it's going to be tough to beat. B's list was also good but comes up just a little short.

"U2 routinely spent a year in the studio...I have a theory: if you put four monkeys in the studio for a year with Lanois and Eno and Lillywhite, they would make a pretty good record, too."

A, for the Loving Spoonful, Temptations, Bobby Bland and Ray Charles, and the absence of Led Zeppelin.

B picks the right artists but then goes with tracks that are either too obvious or obviously wrong.

A has Eno and a great little Lovin' Spooful track.

A is just sort of there. There's much more to love in B, despite another Another Girl, Another Planet. B it is.
