A, easily.

Most of B - before the most recent additions, anyway - looks like YAWN-O-LOT

I noticed that too, and since the separation between the two is already razor thin, I don't want to vote until that's corrected.

Anyway, the two best lists in the competition are up against each other, and really, there's very little to differentiate them in terms of quality, but A sneaks it in terms of having a few more heavy hitters.

Oh gawd, what to do. I love A's list - virtually every song is a home run - but I do think it's way too much of a Cup past masters selection. B, however, falters on more than one occasion but is bold and idiosyncratic and wildly good fun. I've actually picked both Gil tracks in previous Cups as well. I'll need to come back to this.


After due consideration, there's just too much good stuff on A to argue. Hard call though.

This is a toughie- I actually really like B's latest additions, especially the Big Star.

But I've been A all the way and I love love love the Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell duet.

A just.

Thanks, but I want to definitively confirm that it's the video that's incorrect, not the listing.

Agree that these are the two best lists remaining, however.

Leave for a month and return to Smooth FM. Not much edge going on.

Guess A does a bit more for me.

It's a Gil Scott-Heron cage match! :)

Well, this is a tough one. B has a heap of great tracks I love; unfortunately the last 5 don't do as much for me, the great-but-safe Gil and Big Star aside. A's got a very strong list too, but the new 5 with the additions of Marvin & Tammi and some live Killer are just a bit more inspired.

Actually, I've thought about it, and it doesn't matter. They're both boring. (Though it is a great JLL track.) I was already leaning B, so let's go with it. For the win!
