a - never minded the Specials, although I never bothered with their albums, so don't know this. My enjoyment of the band, though, was in inverse proportion to their skaness, and my favourite tracks by them are beyond the scope of this cup. I had a sneaking affection for Terry Hall, despite his unfortunate football affiliations, but could never be bothered with the other two Fun Boys. This is all right, no better than that. 4.5 / 10
b - Well, here's a miracle, someone has posted a single I actually bought, enjoyed, and later made a huge profit on. I was a fan of the Four Seasons pop doo-wop in the early 1960s, had about 15 singles by them, and a good half a dozen of those are better than this, which was taken up by the Northern 'soul' scene (although a less soulful singer than Valli I could hardly imagine), because it had that plodding beat that they could actually dance to without straining anything. But that organ sound, the true hook of the record, is enough to win this match-up 5.5 / 10

A tough one. As others have said, I'm more of a Specials fan in general than a Four Seasons fan, but that's a slight Specials track and a nicely melodramatic 4S's one.

Rewarding the element of surprise as I like to do, I guess I have to go with B.
