Why so much Pixies this year? No matter, it's still A. Though I admire the Osmonds choice (and it's much better than some of their stuff).

Tough, but overall I think B is stronger even if a couple of its new picks are a bit iffy (although The Osmonds track is pleasant rather than bad). It seems to go a little deeper than A. "Child's Play" is one of the 80's great lost singles and much better than the kind of Go-Betweens/Lloyd Cole/ Aztec Camera inoffensive type stuff people usually pick when representing the eighties on here.

Both lists have unraveled a little but A pushes through a tad more convincingly.

A is a good list which I would liked to have gone for. But B keeps pulling out gems like David Ruffin's fantastic version of "I Want You Back".
