A starts strong, it seems.

Dear lord, the more I look at A, the more I feel tingly. 'I Want to Take You Higher' - I mean, shit the bed. That's one of the greatest songs ever. Then they follow it up with Blondie at their most gorgeous and dreamy, the unimpeachable 'What Goes On', great Dusty, Smokey and Costello, a cracking Prince song, 'Maps' (one of the best songs of the last 10 years, easily), Fairports and my favourite solo Iggy.
A!!!!! For the cup!

A. In my mind it is the stronger list although my favourite song is actually in B,and it's from a band I knew absotutely nothing about prior to the BCB Cup. So many thanks to the person responsible for list B and sorry,it just wasn't enough to get my vote in this round.

I like both lists a lot and voted for them in round 1, but right no the sheer joyousness of
has the edge.

I thought in round one it was a really strong list, but perhaps went for the populist jugular a little too much in its tendency for short, sharp pop thrills. I think with its additional five its added a welcome depth and variation. I'm especially pleased with the Gladys Knight and Iggy selections.
B deserves credit as well and it would beat 80% of the lists. The Rockford Files is inspired.. fuck kitsch, this is a genuinely exciting piece of instrumental funk and it wins the UK folk battle; that Pentangle track is much better than A's Fairport pick. It is hampered though, it must be said, with a few second division artists. Anyway...
Far be it from me to waste my time and yours, but I concur with the Mod, except I like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs track. A it is.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.
