A is a list that I haven't been able to make my mind up on but right now it looks good. B is outdone.

I like these lists much, much more than the other, more scattergun, lists in the other ties. I like popsike, what can I tell ya?

I'm going for A. Sorry B. I hope whoever wins this tie wins the cup.

This one I call:

A - 17; B - 31

A was Oliver James, B should send me more songs.

Interesting that Oliver voted for the opposition (when all was lost I suspect)

Great list though. I suppose the 60s stuff taps in to something in the BCB psyche but will only get you so far. Well played all the same. I've enjoyed all your obscure stuff on youtube.

Oli is a true BCB tastemaker. A list of real quality, discernment and distinction.

Agh. Often in life I do things my own way stubbornly and then lose in the quarterfinals.

Thanks to my most vehement supporters - G, mantochanga, The Fish, whodathunkit (sorry for knocking you out!), Loki, toomanyhatz, penk - and others who continued to vote for me have established themselves in the pantheon of euphony.

Thanks in particular for the complimentary comments; these can really make your day, can't they? I'm not sure I would have gone nearly as far as I did without G immediately praising my list each round. Much appreciated. (Also thanks Martha for the condolences, though it appears we have opposite tastes!)

Many thanks to the masked man for his administrative efforts. Bravo!

Best wishes to my opponent, who selected a great Beach Boys track.

Bit shocked by the margin of victory here.

Well done Ollie! Cracking list and it deserved better.
