I hope you beat Brazil in the final. There are a few instances where I'd have picked other tracks (Verve, Jay-Z).

Those last 5 tracks are the duck's guts

It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue - Them
Up on the Sun - Meat Puppets
More Bounce to the Ounce - Zapp & Roger
Twenty Flight Rock - Eddie Cochran
These Days - Nico

especially Zapp and Roger

I find neither particularly exciting, both have around 5 songs that I'd class as classics. A has Transmission which is head and shoulders above all the other stuff.

A pretty comfortable vote for A, even if it did knock me out of the quarter-final. But it's comfortably the best list left; consistently sure-footed and displaying commendably wide taste while doing more than just box-ticking. Great list - I hope it wins the final.

B is often fine but often mystifying - why choose 'Hard Knock Life' when you could choose '99 Problems'? Too many lapses in concentration overall.

A, then

It is a great version, I agree. I prefer to think of it as an anomaly re "The Man".

Close call though. I liked A's 5 new songs (especially the Shangs!)

The new stuff on B is just so much more interesting than the new stuff on A.
