There's stuff I like and dislike on both, but I think on the whole A just about shades it.

A had 5s for Clash and radiohead and 4s for Trex and Dusty

B gets a 5 for AC/DC

God Only Knows - The Beach Boys Indeed
London Calling - The Clash Put the phone down
Son Of A Preacher Man - Dusty Springfield In the words of Jeff Beck 'fekkin obvious'
Each and Every One - Everything But The Girl Everything but a tune
Love Spreads - Stone Roses Sub Zep, sub singing
Tower Of Song - Leonard Cohen Tower of Babel
Messiah Ward - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Of all the Cave songs is this really better than anything off Kicking Against The Pricks? Thought not.
Up for the Down Stroke - Parliament Top Choice fella.
Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead Fake Plastic Bland
Jeepster - T. Rex Poptastic


My New House - The Fall Come round to mine MES and I'll gladly fill you in on what is music and what isn't
Wedding Song - Bob Dylan I'm beginning to appreciate some Dylan in my dotage. This however makes me want to break out the Converge lp again.
High Voltage - AC/DC Like a bit of DC
Down at the Rock and Roll Club - Richard Hell & The Voidoids No Wave No Excitement
Tonight - The Soft Boys I like Robyn Hitchcock....... solo
Ashes Of American Flags - Wilco Alt Arse
Fugitive Kind - Paul Westerberg Nice choice. Prefer my Westerberg solo.
Thirteen - Big Star Overrated, overandout
Nazi Apocalypse - Simply Saucer Not as good as Nazi Punks Fuck Off
Albuquerque - Neil Young Another Young snoozefest.

So what have we got? Can the mighty Parliament trump DC and Westerberg? Corse they fuckin' do. The DC choice is just plain wrong and the inclusion of too much Countryana makes B a dullards paradise.

It boiled down to a three v three race in the end for me. Although the Wilco, Westerberg and Big Star are great choices, I had to go with NC, T. Rex and Radiohead.

B is far more "interesting" but A has the better songs. Swore I wouldn't vote for any list with The Clash in it but, bloody hell, "Tower Of Song".

Not even 'Thirteen' can save B

A. I've got a feeling it's a bit too obvious to win the cup, but it easily does this round for me.

Man this is tough, but I'm gonna have to go with:


Each has one "what were they thinking?" song- Stone Roses? Fucking Wilco? :shock: , but lots of great stuff on both. Again, rather than break down the motivation, etc., the tiebreaker is which has the better songs. I wish A were a touch less obvious, but sometimes it really is obvious what's good and what isn't. Toughest one to call so far, I think.

The choices on list A tend to be either two obvious or the wrong choice of track by a good artist.

B looks like a much more personally loved list and, even if it didn't, it'd still take something special to get me voting against The Soft Boys, Paul Westerberg and that particular Big Star track.

...for having the balls to put Simply Saucer and a vastly underrated Soft Boy's track on their list.

Excellent Wilco track, decent Neil and AC/DC, staple Big Star on B. 2 hoary old cliches kick off A but the immense Tower of Song, nimble Jeepster and barking Parliament win it for A. And Love Spreads is great, y'hear?
