Difficult - B has more songs that I REALLY like - Young Americans, Running Up That Hill, Long Promised Road, Who Knows..., Ballad of Easy Rider, Transmission - but has a few I really dislike too.

A has less I dislike but has a lot of rather over obvious choices - Something, Another Girl, Tenderness, Common People, Teen Spirit.

ummmmmm ................. 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

A kinda looks like the playlist from a radio station that's trying too hard to get down with MOJO readers.


Afterr little deliberation......

If you've got nothing to do, don't do it here.

These really are two great list, both worthy of making the final. With so many tracks on both sides and with it being the final I really need to give this some thought.

I know how you feel, Stephen. Kids, eh?

I like a tune you've got no chance you can whistle, myself. I know you agree. That's the problem you see. They're obsessed with snappy, enjoyable tunes these days, young 'uns. It was all so much more complicated in our day. :(
It takes all sorts.

The lists I liked better than these all got voted out already.

B, I guess.

I've really liked B throughout but he (and I think we know who he is by now) almost drops the ball at the end - Hefner?? A was a rare list that improved as it went on - overall, its splendid.

But its B that would be a deserving winner. Glad I dropped in - wouldn't want to miss the final.

B has ended up as a nice enough list but A has at least half a dozen killer tracks. Predictable but still killers.

After much deliberation I have finally decided. It's so close I'm going mainly on the additional 5 tracks and B has kept up its record of picking at least one or two killer tracks in every new 5. So it's Hefner and Jimmy Cliff that make the difference.
