A quite comfortably.

Really not sure about all of B's artists, but it has a lightness of touch and a kind of spirit which takes it above a rather monochrome A. The selection of "Duel" is looking more and more inspired.

A is a little po-faced, is it not? B was already very good, and the additions (particularly the Jacksons and Kane Gang) improve it a great deal.

Honours even based on the five newbies, but A wins. Two reasons: I find it hard to vote against Powderfinger and the top bit of the list is a smidge better.

A-21 and B-28.

B

As an aside, am I the only one who has a problem with stuff like "Giant Steps" and "Rhapsody In Blue" being on these lists? Too much meat for a daft little competition. Where will it end - "St Matthew Passion", "A Love Supreme", "Tosca"?

Would choosing "Dogs" by Pink Floyd worry you? At 17 + minutes, it's a longer piece than "Rhapsody In Blue", I think? Just an example.

It's all over the map but unlike other lists that are trying to please everybody, this list looks like it came from the heart.

No, because it's basically just a stupid pop song inflated way beyond it's potential. My examples are eternal masterpieces that will be lifting the soul for centuries to come.

Ah, I thought you were objecting to the time.

I don't know how we arbitrate there - I'm surprised no one has included included a classical piece yet, in all honesty. And "Rhapsody In blue" was made after some of the early Louis Armstrong material (and Leadbelly, I think, for instance) that appears not to worry too much.

It is a tough one, I agree.

A really tough one this. A has some great songs but it leans a bit too heavily on the usual suspects. B is less to my taste overall but there are some really well thought out original choices. It comes down to the latest 5 so it's The Jackson Five pick that earns my vote.

Both are very mixed, with some glorious songs and duds. I was about to give it to A but 'We Could Send Letters' just came up on random play, and well, how can I vote against a song like that? B.
