both contain excellent songs, but it seems as if 'a' might be confused about what truly bad music is.

still, the other list won't make it far with that smiths song on their list...the kids love the smiths.

MY VOTE IS FOR B
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

i am also going for B. including the ballad of bilbo baggins is just inspired for sheer awfulness. i am moved.

A has four songs on it i actually like. i wonder if i should admit which ones.

nahhhh. probably obvious enough.

I'm going to vote for B. The other half will probably cancel my vote out because she really hates 'Woman'.

A could win the BCB Cup. It's the wrong list in the wrong cup.

B

Quite a few selections in both lists are absolutely fine.

But B is overall the 'Bizarro best' list - that Fergie song
really is terrible!

Right then, somebody thinks "Crying" by Roy Orbison is a truly awful record. Is this a competition for the deaf?

Cryin' is a little maudlin, but let's be honest the big O could sing anything, including the other 19 selections and find some heart and soul in it.
But B picks a perfectly decent Smiths track.
A for the dreadful Houston and Lennon tracks

B for Panic - the awful moment when the Smiths lost it big, big, big style.

Despite the inclusion of what is actually one of ELP's better moments I'll have to vote B.

Both have too many good songs, but A thoroughly blows it by including the first things here (Buckley's "Dolphins" and pretty much anything by Orbison would have worked) that's actually excellent.

I think you just lost it big, big, big style mate :lol:

As utterly terrible as some of those songs are on B, "Panic" is one of my favourites of all time. Yeah Smiths could do pop, and it's awesome.



A, even though Crying isn't a bad song, it just isn't as good as Panic

Hey, wait. I thought The Big 'O' was Oprah Winfrey! She can't sing worth a shit. It's either that, or my wife's pet name for...er...ummm...satisfaction, and since the former is far more likely to be heard singing in my house than the latter, I'll stick with that.

Ps--I kid my wife. She's a good singer, as it were, and she often describes me as 'perfectly adequate', which I think is a pretty fair cop.

B, if for only the 4 Non Blondes.

And "Crying" is one of the greatest recordings ever made.
