It's definitely hard to keep the momentum going when having to come up with more choices every time you advance. Don't like everything on either list by a longshot, but B rose to the occasion and A didn't.

Hmm, A has improved his list, even though I don't like any of those tracks. Del sounds too much like Will Smith for my liking.

B has made a slightly more interesting list much more dreary. I considered abstaining, but I'm not a twat like that.

Yep that's my take. B.

I've been a fan of B throughout but I'm going A this time.

I think both lists have some pretty nifty additions (as a Lemonheads fan, I'm defo investigating the Middle East). It's not just the truly awful Material Girl which is making me lean towards A, though. Very close - two hugely enjoyable lists - but....

Two good lists. I can get behind A quite a bit; I like a lot of it right up to the end where that Wings track drives it straight into the ditch for me, sadly. An interesting Aretha pick, less played ... but also not quite her most primo material.
I really can't find much I don't like in B, other than it doesn't offer too many surprises. The DC song is just ok, but having the Gap Band's "YDABOM" to close out helps seal the deal.
