Love the inclusion of Paris 1919's homage to their hero John Cale.

I really like B's list - so B for me.
Of course, I was mostly stoned at the time.

A is an interesting list, though I'm not sure if its that good in parts.
B got me right away with the first four selections, easily the strongest introduction to any list I've seen thus far.

I pretty much agree with Owen's views above, although I probably like Surfs Up more than him and The Fall less. Anyway....

There have been complainst about lists being too rockist. Well on B there isn't enough rock for my tastes. On the other hand it does have John Cale and list A doesn't do it for me either.

I like both of these. A has Elvis (admittedly a song I've never heard, but it's Elvis), The Crystals, Nina Simone and Paul Robeson in its favour, but an unfortunate choice of Smiths song. They did some good stuff, so why choose that?

B has the best James Brown song, the sexiest sounding Prince song (with incongruously unsexy lyrics), something by the Impressions - which is a good thing even if I'm not sure if I've heard the song or not - and a great, if overplayed, Michael Jackson song. I don't quite get the appeal of 96 Tears, though I don't dislike it by any means. The Seeds sound to me like a second-rate version of a type of music I don't like much anyway, but they can be forgiven. 16 Tons is scary though.

I don't want to vote against either of these. They are both nicely varied and a refreshing change from the interchangeable 60s rock lists that have been boring me to tears lately.

It's a hard choice but I think Prince and James Brown just take it for B.

Not at all. Rather, to be a connoisseur of great music, wherever it might come from.


oww!

Michael Jackson is good. I thought everyone knew that.
