A, just. Very hit-and-miss lists, for this stage.

Very close, but I prefer B's five. Elton John and Major Lazer are votelosers for me although there is very good stuff elsewhere.

Silly man. It makes a good list even better. LCD Soundstystem and the rather obvious Saints pick are the closest it comes to losing me, but there's so much good stuff on it. Including the best Stones B-side ever. And they've had quite a few good ones...

Edit: sorry, meant to say A!

A certainly has it's attractions - Toots, the Misunderstood and the seventh best Stones B-side. But not enough of them for this stage.

B is the list they call "Behemoth", right? I can see why. Riddled with quality.

Much as I love my Elton, wouldn't pick Bennie and the Jets.

Both lists have stuff I like and stuff I don't care for. A's just a little more to my liking.

I have no particular hatred for Bennie & The Jets, but no geat love either, but I can't help but think the lists should be showing me more than this at this, the business end of things. Dusty and Tim Hardin are the standouts for me and I even quite like when B goes mainstream (David Essex and Donna Summer)
