I have to say I find the five new songs by each a bit underwhelming. But I prefer B's earlier selections - just about.

B just beats A, for me. Both excellent lists, really.

Er... neither really suggests itself as semi-final material to be honest. A is a mixture of the dull and the decent, and gets a wee thumbs up for pulling Amsterdam out of nowhere. B, meanwhile, is a tricky beast. I like most of the stuff there, but it still feels a little lightweight. It's often entertaining, but rarely moving or genuinely compelling. It just has too short an attention span, I think.
Still, I think B just about crawls over the finish line. But I can't say I wouldn't have been happy for my list to face one of these.

To be honest, I'm getting a bit tired of seeing lists that are trying to catch all.

Its B for me; its a strong selection throughout. The new 5s aren't all that for either but, again, B has it.

Working Day and Night is a good choice, and Perfect Circle is one of my favourite songs, so B

Not quite catch all though - they haven't caught you.

B swings a little more but takes an eternity to get started. A is strong from the start and contains some great artists with their best known, and sometimes best tunes.The additions are pretty equal for me. Id just be being contrary if i voted for B, A has more of my faves, with the Jackie Wilson and Gram Parsons being my top two of the tie

B goes with a brave, though slightly odd, Jackson track. Not one of his best..but OK, I hope it doesn't turn out to be a vote loser. Generally both five's are fairly equal but taken as a whole B has more quality and less dodgy selections.

Dead heat, both have 7 stone cold classics and 3 decent tracks. so it comes down to what do you really love

on A that is The Smiths and AC/DC, on B Super Furry Animals, Clash New Order and REM. Plus Nathan Jones is my favourite song from both lists.

So hard luck to A a good elclectic list, let down by picking a song by that fat scottish Dart thrower, well done B.
