Damn close- both very good lists. But A does have a few more weak spots (Cure, that awful Hal thing) and B, by comparison, is the list that keeps giving.

I think both these lists deserve to have gotten this far. Esp. A
which I've championed. I think you've got this!
Regards to B - well-fought. Thanx for the Buddy Holly.

A beat me, and I've voted for it since- and it's still an excellent list- but B wins this one on the strength of its final 10, which are really up my street.
A fine contest, but it's B this time.

Both these lists are very fine, and contain several of my favourite songs. Both actually come from a very similar place, which makes voting harder. However, I just felt from an early stage that B was a potential winner; the quality has been maintained through, and I feel that this stretches out to a certain territory I like that A steers clear of. Essentially, the Cybotron and Dr Octogon are the deal-makers here! But A deserves credit for a fine list that certainly belongs in the final as well.

Right, i've done it. I've listened to the whole shebang, all 70 tracks. I even had to put up with the Gang Of Four who are about as pleasant as the original Chinese lot (my own cultural revolution would have them re-educated in the salt mines).It would have been nice to have an extended period of poppiness, but I guess the nature of picking 5 songs isn't going to bring a list like that to this esteemed place. Anyhow they are both lists which show the posters varied tastes. But I'm going for
