A seems to have a knack for choosing crap songs by good bands. B is just majestic, anyone who votes against that list should be excommunicated from the board although B could try thinking about music that isn't white boys with guitars all the time, a bit of hard core rap and reggae and another soul track or two, from the top draw, may stem the cries of ROCKIST!!

A has always been good, though I don't really like the latest five, but B's addition of AC/DC does not make up for Saxon and Iron Maiden.

Meh. I guess A, since it picked a great Elvis song.

I have to say that, apart from a few bright spots, these lists both leave me kind of cold. I don't think either one's gonna make it past the next round, and neither stirs much passion in me to make a choice.

Abstain.

Two mixed babs but A has slightly higher highs and a bit more variety.

A is one of my favorite remaining lists. Some stuff I really like in B but gotta be A in this tie.

Plenty of great tracks in both lists, but I just think A's highs are a bit higher. In particular, I'm looking for one song that fires me up like no other, and 'I Believe' reminds me that The Buzzcocks had something no other band of the late 70s had. God, that's a storming track.
