B because it has a bit more pop edge, is a bit more contemporary and a bit more varied.

How can I vote against the Homosexuals and my favorite-ever Move song?

Similar lists. But whereas A starts strongly and peters out towards the end, B keeps it up all the way through.

A has 8 solid gold tracks a brilliant Pulp song, the New York dolls, Reward and Eloise.

But B has all that and more 14 solid gold tracks and keeps firing till the end.

B for the final and for the win there as well

B by the skin of its teeth with a slightly more consistent new five (despite the Daft Punk).

B, though I'll probably vote against it in the final unless it spices up a bit and surprises me.

There is plenty to like in B, but A shows a stronger, more sure personality.

A is very very good, but B is absolutely fantastic.

B - just. Both good lists.
Of course, I was mostly stoned at the time.

B was my favourite left in the competition. The new 5 don't grab me, and i'll happily never hear Kick Out The Jams again. But it has more light and shade, and more songs i love than A. The final 5 need to be storming though...

I pulled 10 half-decent tracks from A and 11 from B.

A, and it's getting better and better. Nothing wrong with B at all, and against other opposition it would get my vote, but A is absolutely sensational, easily my favourite list in the comp now. So much so, I will make it writ large:
