B

Tom Petty may be a brave choice but American Girl is a great song.

Cloe, because both lists are kings of the Meh!, all 3s and 2s.

A gets a 5 for th eOrb and B gets one for the Crystals.

A 46 plays B 42

B has a strong middle group, but seems to lose its way near the end. A has a strong opening ten and a solid if unspectacular following 5, but has really raised its game in the last lot with some excellent, idiosyncratic choices.

Two very good lists - I'm actually sad one of these has to go out. B has an interestingly Antipodean flavour, and makes good choices from Nick and The Triffids; plus, from American rock, there's a fantastic Throwing Muses song. Good work.

But A has that little bit more variety - as a mix tape, it would keep the listener consistently entertained. Of the new choices, that wonderfully quixotic Orb track is inspired.

A, but I hope whoever wins this tie goes far.

Takes guts to pick American Girl, but I love it - so B.

Two pretty good lists. Both a little obscure but still interesting and still quality choices. B gets my vote by a slim margin. Like the Petty and Stones choices.

Neither of these lists really touch on my tastes much. I'll give it to B and find myself surprised if I vote in favor of either of these in the next round.

B's got a nice line in aussie rock, in rock generally, but A just has better songs

A continues to excel. Anyone sticking in two quality reggae tracks at this stage, with votes at such a premium, is alright by me.

Don't love either of these though both have a few songs I do love. B by a hair.
