Tough call- A gets points for staying in the current millennium, not that it's all good by a longshot, meanwhile B has made the wrong replacements and ended up with a far worse list than the previous round. They still have enough to take it here, but barely.

A's up and down really, some good stuff, but ultimately a bit lightweight. I'm liking B a lot and want to see where it goes next. I like the imagination at play here.

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

A is one of those lists that looks interesting but is best left unlistened-to. Starts well with Monae and Phoenix but then goes wrong. Weezer are well past their sell-by-date, four minutes of the Bees thing is three too many, and the J-pop one was - despite having a pretty good tune - actually somewhat disturbing. By the end of the list I was clicking on the links with trembling fingers.
B is far from perfect but does get it right more often than not and earns my approval.
