I like some things on A, I like some on B. But I do like how completely random B seems, so it gets my vote.

This was a tough one. I wanted to reward A for the good stuff (Dr John, Cale, Joni) but it also has a whole raft of stuff that makes me yawn (Can, Roxy Music, Nico, Laurie Anderson) Cool BCB cup list identikit fodder, and Dr Who just seems gimmicky. B is fairly neutral throughout, One killer track may have swayed me but it wasn't to be and whilst I applaud the inclusion of country music that track only serves to show why Harlan Howard (like Jimmy Webb) is better known as and should remain a songwriter.

However it pains me to vote against a list with the wonderful DEATH on it.

A is ghastly - it comes at you with the groping, shuffling gait of the BCB Living Dead and you wish you had a machete to chop it all into lasagne-mince. In a humane fashion, of course. Nul points for this superannuated nag of a "music" selection.

B is refreshing in its strange, sweaty-crotched, sequin-codpieced way, and gets my vote.

Yet you voted for it in Round One (Match 17). Boy, you really must've hated my list.

Decent lists, but I like where A is going - I've used the Dr Who theme in the past, a marvellous piece of pioneering electronica.

Still A for me, although I might not have picked that particular Buckley track.

This one's a clear result - A 33, B 22. This time, B was echolalia (which might explain that harsh comment you picked up on, Loki!). Commiserations, but B needs to dig out five more new hot tunes for round 3!
