Damn I was going to pick "Rocksteady" next (should I get the opportunity). I might not like everything on B, but there is something sparky about it. Listening to it would be a fun trip. A has some good selections but there's some grizzly old buzzards weighing it down. I listened to a bit of the Warren Zevon song and it was a horribly earnest and insufferably dull song.

B

Not keen on either list, frankly. B would make me a bit happier overall.

Both pretty good, but I can't abide Psychic TV (prejusdice) and B's has some belting additions. Watch The Sunrise is a great pick. Could be a winning list.

I thought A has some really excellent choices.

Two of the weaker lists, at this stage. Not really many bad songs there, they're just a little dull overall. It feels a bit pointless voting for one of them knowing that neither is going to get much further but B is probably more deserving of a quarter final berth.

B would have been ahead but A has won me over with a great additional 5. The Mink Deville and Warren Zevon choices in particular are inspired.

I'm on record as stating that I liked B already. The addition of Rock Steady, Watch The Sunrise and the brilliant Paper Planes is more than enough. Good skills.

I've been toying with 'Paper Planes' myself ... B is ace.
