Gotta B B, though kudos to A for including the Pogues and a great Ben Folds song at the end.

Though I liked Davey's list more than either, neither of these are at all embarrassing, and seem very heartfelt and real- based on personal taste as much as trying to make an impression. Well done, both. Sorry you can't both win.

It does have to be B, I think.

A is nice enough for what it is but hell, it's like they only know one song by each of the bands on there.

The inclusion of those Hefner and Wah songs in B's last five just put the icing on what was already a far more enticing cake.

B is really good. A is too but I've had issues with some of its more obvious selections.

I've deliberated long and hard.

A has some outstanding selections and voting against great picks from The Beta Band, Lloyd Cole and Arctic Monkeys would be difficult.

B has some songs i actively don't like.

A has some very safe and therefore rather dull choices from great artist.

B is more eclectic and has more flashes of inspiration, and also contains some real favourites.

Therefore B should be champion, but it was a very close run thing.

I'm also going for B, for the reasons others have noted. Both have plenty of good tunes though.

I know who B is - and it looks like a winner. So even though I'm putting my free accommodation in Wood Green at risk, I'm going to have to go with my gut feelings and preferred choice of songs. A

Both lists are good, neither was my favourite and A gets better as it goes along, while B tails off near the end, but ultimately, B has more good stuff, takes more chances, covers a broader range of songs and generally seems more fun.

So B it is, but don't get too bigheaded about it!

It's B. A is good but seems to lack individuality.

B is great selection. A's good too -both more varied than the alt rock lists that have won in previous years.
