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

I don't really like either.

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

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.
So you're living in Eden where, apples are good
But every narrow miracle, takes place on Earth
Yeah, some militia have arrived and, the percussion has come
And they're pounding out messages loud on the drum
