B songs first, and some good ones at that... although the talk talk is a minus. The Teardrop Explodes is fantastic, and I wouldn't actually call West One inspired, I think I used it four years ago... maybe more, but what a great song.
the Eagles suck.

Like and dislike things on both. A seems to be livelier.

This Big Hush and When I Dream are two great picks on a very likeable list. A has got some good picks too but the new 5 are not really my cuppa, especially Dylan.

A's original 10 were much better, but B's latest five edge it.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

Despite some good stuff on A (sound Costello and Smiths picks), it descends in to a certain kind of list that just rubs me the wrong way (Pixies, Bush, Bowie, Radiohead meh meh etc etc) B isn't fault free but has enough winners B

B lists the songs before the artists in contravention of the stated rules of the tournament, but A has a misplaced peiod after the numeral 3, so neither of them gets my vote.
