A clinches it with the last five, but I have been rooting for it since the beginning. Well fought to B, as well, definitely the second best of the cup.

Not a fuck of a lot in it though. Closer than Collingwood cousins.

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.

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.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

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.

B is and aiways has been an excellent list. But three funk picks in the final five suggest a distinct running out of steam, A however remains good to the last drop.

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
