A

and that's only for The Monkees and Love. Neither list does a lot for me - sorry guys. I could almost dig the jazz funk vibe at the end of B, but there are better choices and I hate The Pet Shop Boys with a vengeance.

A because it has the Pixies and doesn't have Kraftwerk.

despite being a curate's egg, A has enough to shade it.

neither list particularly inspires me but i suppose i prefer A because of "lazarus" and "orange skies".

This is a toughie, but B just shades it

A has great tracks from Fire and Love, but is pretty unsure when picking anything outside 1967.
B is a varied and fun list . In particular the Roy Ayers and Yello selections are inspired. Abstract dance is the name of the game but there is pop nous here too with West End girls. And what a blast from another planet Rockit sounded like at the time, I'd quite forgotten about it.

Made me play the race, rockit, the monkees, love and Fire tracks all of which were fun, although i now have Al doing impressions of the race which will get annoying very soon. made me wish i still owned a copy of gepetto as well.

A has some great stuff but also has pink floyd AND the wedding present.

I'll go for B but would be happy with either progressing really.

You could do a really good 10 out of the two lists. Unfortunately, there's some stuff on both which I can't really get with. There's definitely a rock/pop choice to be made here and I'll go this time for A; its got my new discovery The Fire and Gepetto, so it wins for those.

Not too enthused about either, but A at least has a few winners and has three tracks I like- Monkees, Love and Fire. Some of the rest I just don't know but might like it if I heard it- the same can not be said for the Pet Shop Boys or Alan Parsons. Prejudices, maybe, but it's enough to sink B for me.
