A is tremendous pop fun, the Annie and Warren G choices are fantastic and its nearly all great excepting a couple of downright bizarro choices - Mental As Anything? Falco?? You've got to admire the cajones, at least. B is blown away, I'm afraid.

Both closely-matched (and uneven)...

But B chose "Funky Nassau" and that is inspired.

Although this is an annoying position, it's the one I'm taking. I know so few of these tracks, I couldn't poosible pass comment. Make them as JU discs and get back to me.

B because A has Althea & Donna - Uptown Top Ranking
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

I vote for A with some reservations - there a number of crackers in that list but the Supergrass track is so wrong it hurts my brain

A is different, true, but it's a bit too suspiciously wacky for my liking. There is some good stuff on there, but plenty of dreck too.
B is stronger overall, although it too has some howlers.

My early adolescence was blighted by many of the tunes on A. Live It Up? Give it up.
Good.

A is possum pizza with a cowpat jus.
B is BBQ gibbon with monkfish crown.

Both are awful. A is taking the piss.
