Wow - getting difficult..

For the adds, as much as I really like You Wear It Well, B additions are much stronger. Little Fluffy Clouds has Rickie Lee remembering the Arizona skies of her childhood. Hits me right where I live. Birthday and The Real Me were both on my (longish) short list, and Stay With Me has the Rod contingency covered. Excellent!

B, but a toughie. Not a loser list A, hold your head up high.

B

I like a lot of what A has going on, but B's is a solid sender.

A . Well balanced.

These lists get worse as the rounds go on don't they?
They are both dull and worthy and getting duller and worthier.
Its strange how we are all of a certain age and just aspire to mediocrity really.
I'll vote for B as its slightly less appalling than A. I wouldn't have either candidate near my record player though.

Now this is a toughie. I think, on reflection, I'd just prefer to listen to 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

A 24 RcL points - B 18 RcL points

A wins

If it wasn't getting cuffed here, I'd tip A as a potential cup winner.

But there's still more than 24 hours to vote, although the electorate seems to have slimmed down a bit.

the remaining contestants make up most of the voting and that can only be a good thing.

A gets my vote this time.

B is a fine list though, let down by the Public Enemy track.

A. Still mostly down to that incredible Sister Ray/Born Slippy double whammy.

Are you still going to post a new match/es every night?

I'm not sure if I can wait two days between matches......

Not true. They don't know what they're talking about!
