Interesting lists, both with some ace soul tracks. But B has better rockers, and does not contain the excrementous Robyn.

Two impressive, eclectic lists. B is less studied and so slightly better.

You think? I'd say it seems much more worked-out and careful. More so than the very spotty A, which has more pop spark but also a few more blunders: and regarding the rubbish Major Lazer, the presence of Aphex Twin on B reminds us that the video is hardly a new idea...
I think I'll go with A, though. I just think it's the one which is paying less heed to cup convention, even if that does mean screwing up at times. I think it's more likely to pull out surprises or odd picks, and at this stage that's what I want. B is very strong, with some great choices, but doesn't really make me raise my eyebrows at all.

Two lists I have an affinity for and which I think have an affinity for each other. Shame one has to go.

A is that bit more me.

Very difficult choice. Plenty i like, plenty i don't. I'm going to give i to B which has slightly more songs that float my boat though both are fine.

B knocked me out and I wasn't overly impressed by it then. Whilst I applaud the addition of The Chambers Brothers and whilst I'm not totally convinced by A it just does enough.

Nothing against A, but B is tasty.
