Well you'd expect some decent lists now we're getting down to the business end of things, and these are two pretty good lists. There's stuff I admire on B but more that I love on A, plus a better new 5.

List A gets 29 out of a possible 100 that says it all really, apart from the Shangs nothing of any real interest to me at all.

B is a little better but it started poorly, apart from Drake, and is f\getting better. gets 45

A good new 5 with 5s for Pixies and Prunes.

And sometimes I ride on bus x82, say what!

A, easily.

But B is very good indeed.

Both lists are very, very good. Both have songs that would generally sway me if it weren't for the other. Other than "She", I'm Not a huge fan of B's latest 5 - but the list preceeding it is strong. The Willim DeVaughn and Bill Withers tracks in particular nudge me towards a very slight win for B.

I vote for B. Seemed a stronger list overall than A.

there's some great stuff on A, made me put that magnetic fields track on just now (although i've got B's delroy wilson track now)

B covered all my bases in the original 10 and every new 5 adds a few songs that mean a lot to me.

I've had to add this one up and go for B! Great list!

I can't in good conscience vote for a list with Nick Cave AND Scott Walker.

I just can't.

There's so many songs between the two that I flat-out love, that I hate to pick at all, but A is just a little bit better.
