Two very good lists but am excellent new 5 from A steals my vote. The 'World of Oz' track is like peak period Bee Gees so there is something to investigare further as well.

I'm not convinced by B, but it's still good enough, I guess.

I was wrong.

I had the opposite reaction. What a waste.

This was tight. Two lists crammed with good tunes. B for my fave Robyn Hitchcock and the last great (or at least decent) Bowie song.

I really love Aand hope it wins the cup - it's packed with great singers and great tunes. So odd that it started with Zappa, not that that's not a great track, but he's such a polarising artist.

B is really good as well. Both lists deserve to have got his far (which I didn't think was true of either list in Match 1).

Nothing against B which has some good choices but A is living proof of how links are worth the effort. Just about every link to something unknown to me turned out to be great. So despite Frank Zappa..

Two nice ones, and a good new five for each.
Great shout on "The Wind" for B, particularly.
I think I like A better, though, overall. That World of Oz track does sound like prime Bee Gees! Nice Bee Gees cover, too.
