B nudges it only for being more familiar to me.

I dunno. Not a single song on either list that I am really passionate about. I'll go with A for Howard Tate and The Standells.

A has the amazing, glorious, life-affirmingly stupendous whizz-bang genius of 'Let's Build A Car' and as soon as I saw that, I thought 'go for A regardless'. And there's 'Love and a Molotov Cocktail', which is great....but the rest is either unfamiliar (again!) or just not my cuppa.

B edges it for around four songs I'm rather fond of.

B lost me with the dreary Mazzy Star, A won me over with the Blake, Swell Maps and Patto.

Some good picks in B, but A's just so much more adventurous and interesting.

B goes down very pleasantly indeed - what I know of A is a little mundane.

You're not passionate about Let's Build a Car?

B by some distance, A's all a bit pub rock I'm afraid. Stand out picks from Tim Buckley, Love and the almost forgotten early eighties Pete Shelley single "Homosapien", 80's electro -pop at its most sleazy and sensual.

B - looks like a list of someones favourite songs, if that makes any sense.
Of course, I was mostly stoned at the time.

It's poor quality tonight after last night's terrific standard matches.
