B

A is good but probably too even. Nothing leaps out at me and says "ooh yeah good pick" Maybe the Four Seasons, so B despite being more up and down wins for the Aretha and Laura Nyro amongst others.

I actually dislike most of these lists, but A has a little less loathsome about it.

As lists get longer they generally become more pleasing, don't they? I wasn't the biggest fan of either when they only had 10-15 songs on them (although, that's not to say I disliked them at all) but now they both look rather splendid and deeply satisfying lists. B is that bit more eclectic and deserves enormous credit for sneaking in some very un-BCB stuff but my heart just about leans towards A. Sorry B.

Mind you, neither list is quite as good as the one that's currently behind in Semi Final 1.

Hells bells, this match was a roller coaster of a ride! Evens on the first page then B racing ahead on the second page before A rallying superbly in page three to win, somewhat cruelly for B, 27 - 25

B was Sgt Pepper.

I knew met him before I even met you, Chris. Maybe before I even knew of you. He was a regular poster on the Q board and is an occasional poster here. He kipped at my house once, just after the earth cooled and the dinosaurs came, but don't hold that against him.

Um, yeah, I'm old school. I'm an efficiently stealthy poster. I prefer to post quickly and without substance and then disappear back in to the BCB peripheries unnoticed.
I kinda need a new, less-shitty name, I guess. I've been stuck with this one since my wide-eyed, teenage Q years, however, if I change it I'd become even more anonymous than I am now.

Anyway, this is distracting me from the reason I am here, which is just to say that I hate you all. I'm now off to recriminate further and to will unpleasant diseases upon each of you.

Ah, the avatar has jogged my memory.

Congratulations on getting so far, Sgt. P! :)
