Well, except for "Hungry Heart," B does a good job of finishing, with the last five, what they started with their first five.

It's enough to make me forgive that dull patch in the middle.

B's most recent 5 swing it for me.

It's kinda depressing for a music forum to be proud of not knowing musicians.

Neither does enough with its extra five, although it was good to see "Uptight", but any goodwill engendered by that was ruined by the perplexing Wonderstuff selection. B seems to be getting worse, but its initial ten is much the stronger here so..

These are lists that appeal to different moods. A is for my moody, long-overcoat-wearing self; B is for my happy sing-along-to-the-radio self. Both are currently whispering in my ears (like the angel and the demon figures in old Bugs Bunny cartoons). In truth, I think that A's indie grimness is getting a bit overpowering (Wonder Stuff, anyone? Thought not...), though I find B's new choices have been overplayed a little....

A just - it still has more songs I like.

Very close: A, although it seems like they've just decided they should have more black artists.

A's leg-warmers and check shirt are a little off-putting but not as much as B's false teeth, rollers and Afghan coat.

A, but I'm not double-dating again.

Blame it on my Jersey rebellion... I cannot vote for a list including Hung, Hung, Hung-ary Heart, which also picks some of my least favorite tracks by favorite artists.
