Two strong selections but I think I will go for the more varied, if somewhat random, selections of A rather than the dad-rockin' B.

Bowie OR VU in a list usually rubs me the wrong way. Bowie AND VU no chance (although I've voted for this list before on the strength of Wally Badarou and Joni - the latter cancelled out here by B).

In any case I quite like B, although I could do without Ms Safka'a squawking.

I like the Lee Moses and Deerhunter additions on A, but overall, ( and largely still because of the Talk Talk),

it's a B

Some l’affable clappe-trappe from Anna Karina and the Deerhunter doesn’t move me. But the Lee Moses is good, even if it’s only about the fifth-best track on the album.

I love that Joni one actually.
