A, but only just. Neither list is particularly interesting.

I don't really like either.

A, I suppose.

A is quite good but rather stuck in a slightly predictable 80's alternative idea of "cool". B seems far more adventurous and challenging, and its additional five contain some great grooves and more killer moments.

A has plenty of great choices but lacks personality - it's all rather textbook, without any of the quirky or unusual choices that make for a good mix.
B is more varied and interesting.

A is stuck in an admittedly pretty good groove. B is a bit more exotic (and it's got "Michelangelo" on it).

Both excellent lists. I feel B is just a touch stronger and casts its net a little wider. I might be reaching for the fast-forward a couple of times during a night with A.

I think B but it's a tough one - and not because they're particularly memorable lists.
