Harvey's list definitely didn't deserve such a thrashing.

Leg of lamb wrote: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.


Oh yeah, your scoring system is a pile of poo.

Not that one more vote for me would've mattered.

B isn't really my taste, though it does boast a great Fall track.

Overall, there's more for me to enjoy on A, so it gets my vote.

Most of it works well for me (don't know the Cave track) and The Stone Roses selection is a brave, and good, one. B's list will probably be popular on here, but isn't my thing.
Easy win for A.
