I like all the lists remaining so don't take it personal if you don't get my vote.

I really like that Sophia George reggae number. I don't know where I was when it came out (Baghdad maybe) but it passed me by at the time.

Both of these are fairly tremendous, so hats off. I can't fault A but B perhaps has a lighter pop touch that gets my vote.

I think there is greater imagination in A. B relies a little too much on standards.

I'm trying to decide which of these lists would leave me less likely to be yawning in the corner at a party if they were playing, and I think A would be responsible for about 13% fewer yawns than B.

A, it is.
