Tough because while A has a Beatles song B has an EMO song.

Gotta hope that A is Tomorrow Never Knows rather than Something and go with it.

If I'd got past the first round in either of the two competitions I've entered this year I may well have chosen a Cocteau's track. We've not seen enough of them this year.

Breathtaking.

A - 6 (next 5 please)

Fuck all votes for either really, but Leg of Lamb bites the dust.
