Both pretty good lists but B goes to more interesting places.

Some great stuff in A with sparks, staples singers, jackson and Them but I can't get past the pete townsend offering.

B has a nice mix of quite a few genres plus the chairmen of the board.

B it is.

These lists are decent enough but don't really get me jumping.

B, I guess.

i agree with this.

in my case, there is one track i would definitely lose from each list, but i thought the rest were, well, very good. fun to listen to, even. i liked the way both lists moved. although close for me, today, i'm goin with fresher.

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 like both of these on the whole, both of them mainly tasteful and pleasant if lacking in adrenaline. What swings it is that I find it very hard to keep a straight face listening to that 5th Dimension song.

Difficult for me to listen, so I'm just going on what I know.

A is solid, if mostly a bit too familiar, but B had several pleasant discoveries in store.

Both good. A has cunningly-worked classics. B has an inspired Glen Campbell pick.

Is it wrong to really hate Aaron Neville's saccharine vibrato?

I liked plenty of both lists but B shades it for me. Defo investigating Myracle Brah further, stupid name notwithstanding.

Neither list particularly excites me. I'll take B for the This Mortal Coil choice.

A was Samoan.

B, please be doing the sending three new songs thing.

Many thanks to Penk, to those who voted for me and of course, congrats to contestant B.

I shall rest back on the laurels of having made it to Round 3 in the heady days of the year 2015.
