Is a Dusty song compulsory this year?

B because they remembered to put the Dusty song in.

A mismatch, as I enjoy both lists about equally for their variety (and welcome lack of "shock-value").

I'll say A for multilingual effort (and in spite of loving the Dusty track)

a good match-up. i also enjoy the variety of both lists. A's got its groove thang goin on. it goes many places, yet the whole list holds together very well. i give it the edge. B is a lil more hit-and-missy for me, but it does have some downright beautiful tracks. sigh.

A close one. I like most of A especially the Charlie Jackson but B offers a bit more variety so with apologies to A

Two very nice, eccentric lists. Despite almost losing me with the Feelies, A has a touch more that works for me.
