B's first and second ten could have been chosen by completely different people. But it's that lively and enjoyable second ten that wins the tie for it. A is one of those OKish lists that doesn't really provoke any reaction, positive or negative.

It would be so much easier if these two lists were opposed to the awfully lame ones in Tie 13.

Really, I like them both a lot, but on the strength of the new 5:

A is just a little more consistent than B, which spoils the flow by putting puzzling poor selections (that John Lennon track is a real stinker) next to excellent choices.

Yes, I agree with that score. Another landslide. A was Ray K.

Oh man, not again.

Who votes for these winning lists?

Oh fuck... at least I loved B almost as much as Ray's

Some of these last few ties really opposed poeple who should have both made it further, while in others both seemed entirely disposable. :|
