Neither list excited my tastebuds, but I'll go for B.

Same here. I'll go A, and not just because I've always found "Manchild" rather irritating (And I bought the album!).

Too much grimness on A does it in.

A
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

Up with People? Don MacLean? No.

On the other hand, I'm not wild about A.

I'll have to come back to this one.

I have a problem with that Up With People song too, but there is more in A which i really like. B has some great highs but there are a handful i really have trouble with, so it's A.

I've just been reading about Up With People on wiki, there's a whole cultural history there of what they represent that I was totally unaware of. Indeed I'd not even heard of them prior to the competition. If you didn't know that history, the track itself would sound enjoyable enough.

I remember them from 1968 and hate them with a vengeance. I had hoped not to hear about them ever again and see where I find them.
