Justine and "Me at the Zoo" are popping up everywhere. Still dig B a bit more.

I like Don and Dewey - poor man's Little Richard. There's always some artist that grabs a cup zeitgeist.

I had “It’ll All Be Over” locked and loaded for next round. I guess I’ll need to find a new track if I get that far, but it won’t be a better one.

That should probably get me to vote against A in retribution, but instead I’m voting for A in admiration.

I like most of B but only go so far with it. Nothing on there I love besides the Zombies track (which is a fairly obvious choice). I love most of A, on the other hand (though I would wish for a better Mac song). Willie Wright and the Jubilees singled out for particular praise.

Both decent selections with a pleasing variety. Both have a couple of head scratchers too. I prefer the vibe A establishes with the Buckley and Willie Wright tracks so..

Don and Dewey again!

I'm going with B this time, although the appeal of Courtney Barnett escapes me.

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

I'll bet there are two people who are annoyed at each other for stealing their carefully-researched Don and Dewey song, there.

A is a pretty standard Cup mix of styles but they've picked well. I liked the soul selections a lot and even the artists I don't care for (Beefheart, Mac) deliver more listenable efforts.

I like the first two on B but gawd, it's a big drop-off from there.
