I liked the PE pick on the other list, however.

A even though it could have picked a better early Simple Minds song. Nowt wrong with Rush. Brave choice.

Both lists bring a lot of well-known songs to the table and I don't dislike any of them (that Heart-version is actually not bad though they do a much better Battle Of Evermore...). I'd be happy to hear both of them on my daily travels. I'm voting for A because of the excellent Roxy-track but that was the only deal-breaker on two very even lists.

well, in the great northern town debate, i fall cleanly (oww) on the side of fan. i love it with its dreamy vibe. i like most of A's list... just not quiiiiite as much as i like B's list. B has this really weird yet groovy blend goin that i'd like to try in my coffee. i luv an easy 7 tracks on B. that kennedy center honors thing still gets me misty eyed.

BIt torn on this one, as they're pretty evenly matched when it comes to highs (Dry The Rain vs Richard III) and lows (those twats Simple Minds vs a very dreary Costello). It's a coin toss.

Oh, look - Are "Friends" Electric has only gone and won it for B. Congratulations.

Probably the best tie so far as far as I am concerned. Two bold lists with superb variety and great tracks. Very hard to decide between them.

A is a solid little list. B is good, particularly with "Richard III", but not quite good enough.
