A for me.

It's a fairly obvious and dare I say it, populist list, but it's also just a collection of good songs. Good enough for me!

Although I would like to reward B for the brave and discerning choice of Gerry & the Pacemakers, I can't ignore that A has 12 good ones, as opposed to 8 for B, so A it is.
1966 and all that

Weakest tie of the night by some distance, I'll give it to A for including 'Reward' and for not including the pedestrian stadium rock of 'You Shook Me All Night Long'.

Great Fela choice.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

A started very well and keeps on improving. I'm not sure B will ever recover from picking Luniz in its first 10.

A is slightly better, but these two don't seem too exciting to me.

A is becoming a bit too user-friendly.A few surprises wouldn't go amiss. I would have desrted it but there's just too much shite in B.

You Shook Me All Night Long? This is the BCB Cup, not some bachelor party at a Hooter's in Fresno. I'm worried that B may have actually run out of songs. If I pick it, will we get side one of Thriller for his/her next five? Random selections from Aerosmith's Greatest Hits? I still like it better than A...

I'm kind of a sore loser :cry:
