I'll forgive the Roxy Music song and go with B.


Yeah, that's how I feel about it too, I don't necessarily agree with all the choices, and A is more consistent song-for-song, but as mad as it is, I'd much rather listen to B, even allowing for the occasional strange choice- of all the Roxy songs, why that one?- because of the things that griff mentioned.

B, but only just.

B pulled away in a Match that was neck and neck for a while, winning 23 - 34

A was Piledriver.

I can't see how Piledriver lost that one.

There is a huge amount of inverse snobbery in some people's voting, it is almost a case of "these songs are too well known so I won't vote for them"

There well known for a reason - because, most, of them are fucking brilliant ( I except Moby Dick from that ).

I despair some times, I thought we were voting for good lists of music not for which lists make us feel the smuggest.

Bad luck Piledriver I thought your list spanking.

I definitely thought it was the better of the 2, even though it didn't give me a rager at the same time, but you have a very good point. It does turn into a bit of an obscure-a-thon at times, as in something that isn't as loved by the general unwashed must be better. Stupid theory. Its good no matter how many other people like it.

Your comments are much appreciated. It was an honest list of tracks I thought were good (hell, the inclusion of Moby Dick shows it was honest).

My voting has always been based on familiarity rather than cleverness, but each to their own. It's only a bit of fun, after all. I'm not at all offended (despite my jokey comment in the recriminations thread).
