Surely you need to get either the band name or the song name right? Jesus wept!

I was voting B anyway.

B because, yeah, it's from the heart. Not that A isn't but B is certainly more idiosyncratic and it has room for 'I Want You Back' and 'We Could Send Letters' and stuff like that.

Neither list has much in the way of modern classics ;) But A has 5 solid gold tracks in Joy Division, Husker Du, Scott Walker PJ Harvey and Nick Cave - you could have got two for the price of one with those last two.

B has Aztec Camera, Supergrass and QOTSA and massive kudos for choosing Gershwin, but gets pipped at the post

A is a classy list but B has the pop edge that I crave, the horrid Bacharach/Costello travesty aside

"Rhapsody In Blue" is a brilliant addition. But the simple fact is, I like a larger number of selections from the other list... so A

Ultimately i can't vote against those 2 songs, although the former is hardly an original pick to seasoned BCB cuppers.

I feel bad for B because it is quite clearly from the heart but:
