The 'Til Tuesday track can go, but other than that, A takes it for me. I might've gone with B, if they had not lumped three (admittedly great) Motown tracks back-to-back-to-back in the middle of the list (I want them spread out, or maybe hit some other soul labels).

I got confused earlier, I thought list B was Baron's submission that was eliminated in an earlier round. Anyway, A gets my vote.

I like both of these. They both mix some undeniable classics with some nice interesting choices and look like they'd make for good playlists.

I think B might be more to my taste overall, but something draws me to A instead.

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.

B

Fine list, now including the best-ever record by The Association. Massive.

Baron a Durutti fan?

Anyway, in my complicated scoring system, this goes 32-32, so the vote goes just to B for that Durutti track. You know how much I love the Durutti Column!

Well, I still don't exactly believe in B, but I believe in it enough to vote for it in this one.

I'm pretty sure B was the list that eliminated Baron in an earlier round.

A starts off strong and gets weaker. Also switches from artist/title to title/artist for some reason. Good enough for now though.
