A makes some great un-BCB picks. Has Mahalia Jackson ever even been cited in the cup before? All in all, just a more interesting selection of music.

I'm not all that crazy about B's latest five, but overall I di like the list more than A's.

Can't stand Mary's Prayer and B picks a great Dennis Brown track, so...

A - Mary's Prayer (yukk!)
B - Life In A Northern Town (likewise)
A - Pandora (delicious)
B - Glittering Prize (awesome)
A - The Boxer (can't beat it)

So...

A

Yes, A it is.

This was tough but it came down to B's last 5, particularly the great Link Wray pick.

Things to like in both, but I think A scores its points in more interesting ways, and is also bothered enough to make sure it gets the artist and song names in the same place all the way through.

B is for barely. Also, please fix your formatting should you advance.

Sorry, other list. Kudos on the Arvo Part. The second list's just got more of a groove I can get to.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Most of A's second half would have me running for the hills shouting for mercy.

It's Mr. B for meeeeeee

A is still a good list though it needs to get some lead in it's pencil. Glad I stuck with the Mahalia Jackson link which turns into something magnificent.

B is just the usual. No horses scared, honey still for tea, zzzzzzzzzzzz.

B has the best songs by a significant margin for me. I love it to bits. But what is up with the formatting....?
