From what little I know of either list, I prefer A

Apologies for liking more than one type of music - next time I'll try 10 Gregorian Chants (preferably all from the same fucking year).

I would like to congratulate my opponent - for choosing the fabulous "Desiree" - all the rest was shite.

Ah well, off to the Bitter and Twisted Club.

I'm sorry for being so cynical but the list certainly does look that way. Would it be fair to say that you deliberately chose 10 songs that you like from 10 different genres (albeit because you genuinely do like all of those genres), rather than just 10 songs that you like?

6 of one and half a dozen of the other. The thing is even if you stick with one genre you can still end up being tokenistic - got to have a Beatles track, a Stones track, etc. Thank God there are no rules although others on the board seem to think there ought to be.
