I find both a bit hit and miss, but B's Temptations and Specials choices swing me towards it, although I was tempted to penalise it for liking that bloody awful Tubes song.

A lot of inconsistency in list A with only five goodies, its hard to see how it got into round 2. B is better and funkier so wins

Tough call but I'm not mad keen on either.

B is shaping up very nicely. Could go all the way.

Ahhh- B. Neither really knocks me out, though.

Frustrating 'cause there's songs that i really like and some that i despise in both lists. But I'll stick with A once more.

Pretty even with A having teh Bragster with a track I chose as well, REM and a great Buddy Holly track. B has the Specials, White Punks on Dope ( great call ) and Psycho Killer.

But A gets it for being a little more "with it", and for having the best song of all in " Levis Stubb's tears"

I saw Bragg do that at the Roundhouse recently and it was magical. At the end of the song he said he didn't need a trumpeter because studies had shown that 84% of Billy Bragg fans provided the trumpet solo themselves in their heads - which caused much hilarity because that is exactly what most of us had just done.

I'm not excited by either one, though both have plenty to like.
B comes correct with George Jones and Bill Withers. If A had more Rob Base and Bob and Earl . . . and the right Mission of Burma song (nobody's gotten it yet!) I would be there.

Both a pretty decent. I think that I like B's additional 5 better than A's though.

So B it is then.

Too much of A misses for me. B's extra 5 are bit more obvious and less exciting than the original 10, but it still wins. B
