The Stone Roses song is a massive tune, still carries an impact today. I'm amazed people are so negative about it -listen to it loud with a few beers and you'll be won over.

B leaves me cold (bloody perishing actually).
A at least gets me nice and warmed up before turning the heating off half way through.

No need to take proceedings so seriously champion. As someone who copped a flogging in the first year of this thing because everyone enacted their anti-Tori Amos clauses, it's all a bit of fun :-)

A is very familiar, almost too much so, but that's no bad when the songs are good.

Heifer, if you put Tori Amos in with 9 James Brown tracks you'd lose my vote :)

A wins again for me.
Of course, I was mostly stoned at the time.

a..

God Only Knows - The Beach Boys (+1 - these days I'm not so sure about this song. I'm not marking down on grounds of unoriginality. It is good though.)
London Calling - The Clash (+1 - ah! the second Clash choice in two ties which I'm not so sure about)
Son Of A Preacher Man - Dusty Springfield (+3)
Each and Every One - Everything But The Girl (0)
Love Spreads - Stone Roses (+1)
Tower Of Song - Leonard Cohen (0)
Messiah Ward - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds (0)
Up for the Down Stroke - Parliament (0)
Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead (+2 - a bold choice really)
Jeepster - T. Rex (0)

b...

My New House - The Fall (0)
Wedding Song - Bob Dylan (0 - fuck that's two artists who I love with songs I don't know)
High Voltage - AC/DC (0)
Down at the Rock and Roll Club - Richard Hell & The Voidoids (0)
Tonight - The Soft Boys (0)
Ashes Of American Flags - Wilco (+2 - at last, something I can definitively like!)
Fugitive Kind - Paul Westerberg (0)
Thirteen - Big Star (0)
Nazi Apocalypse - Simply Saucer (0)
Albuquerque - Neil Young (0)

Fuck, I feel really bad on B - unfamiliarity on my part (and not through esostericness on theirs) has scuppered the list. It looks really interesting, but a few big hitters take it for A.

you really need to hear this track, david. if i'm honest, big star are a bit overrated when they rock out (they're cursed with this - it's all a bit forgettable, hence the dog's antipathy) but their pop songs and ballads are just about as good as it gets.

That's a spot on analysis of Big Star. But then I'm a Big Star heretic in that I believe that Radio City is the weakest of the first three albums.
