B, I suppose. Both lists rather too polite for my tastes.

B
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

Again, very close, but there's a bit more life in B's new selections.

B it is, then.

I like a lot on A, but B has a fair few classy tracks and plenty of breadth, which I appreciate in the Cup. More likely to get you dancing too.

The Peter Bjorn and John track just steals it.

I think B has gotten my vote in every round based on it's original 10, over all it has a couple of tracks that really matter to me and a smattering of very nice reggae and soul. The new 5 doesn't really add much. Oh and i really dislike that patronising Gram Parsons track,

A is hit and miss, but there's a lot to like there and the Hank track

Debaser! B

A's gone for some classics in its additional five which give its list a bit of a lopsided look overall.
I much prefer B anyway and some nice additional soul selections, including a slinky "operator" I'd not heard before. I think this the last year you'll be able to get away with "I Wanna Be Your Dog", but it is a great track. I wasn't wholly convinced by B in the early days of the competition but its really shaping up now into a list that could go all the way.
