I'm sticking with A. Love that Dillinger tune.

B's list is quality, though.

Hard to make a decision here. Both lists have an odd mixture of canon heavyweights and quirky, interesting choices, with both also making a couple of blunders. I think B's new five is a bigger misstep, though - looks like a bit of a last-minute attempt to get some well-known songs in there.

B certainly gives value for money. The Neil Young, Lightning Rod and Coltrane tracks alone would keep you going for an hour or so. Two pretty fair eclectic lists but A has the lighter touch. It's a tunes thing.

That Bloody Giraffe wrote:List A:

Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me) – The Temptations - Mine has also and its in a place where someone might suggest that big blokes singing like a stoat has got hold of their knackers is not big or clever.
Deanna – Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - runty Aussie drug infested twats who think they are the second coming of Mark Twain should not be given studio time to pander to their Southern gothic pretensions. Especially when they are mooning around like a love sick puppy.
Pressure Drop – The Maytals - I like this. It reminds me of getting wasted on industrial grade skunk and attempting to 'harmonise' The Rivers Of Babylon.
A Message To You Rudy- The Specials - A message from Jumper K. If you think this is even in the top 10 of Specials tracks you deserve to go out this round.
I Feel Love – Donna Summer - So do I Donna, so do I. This is fruity.
Ain’t It Fun – Rocket From The Tombs - Yes it is Cheetah.
These Arms Of Mine – Otis Redding - To some Otis embodies soul, to others he's a grade A chancer doing a shit load of cover versions. I'm with Mr Pitiful.
Ace Of Spades – Motorhead - A thing of wonderous beauty. Perfect pop. Up yours Brian Wilson.
I Can't Write Left Handed – Bill Withers - Neither can you sing. Next!
Lady In The Front Row – Redd Kross How the mighty fell. Piss poor Beatles pastiche, a poor mans Jellyfish if you will. I won't.
Cocaine In My Brain – Dillinger - Time for a new drug, UHU id probably more exciting than this.
Plan B – Dexys Midnight Runners - If Rowland ever had one why the fuck didn't he use it? Dressing up as a bird and coming over all mumsy is not a plan. Singing and elocution lessons are a plan Kev.
He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s The Pilot- Grandaddy - They're simple, they're dumb, I'm the daddy. Dullards.
Where You There (When They Crucified My Lord) – Johnny Cash & The Carter Family - You weren't either. Where were you? Smoking some heroin in the cave probably Johnny.
Rags & Old Iron – Nina Simone - Steptoe and Son blues tribute??? Great idea Nina. Like it.

List B:

Kinks - Set Me Free link - For fucks sake you cheeky Cockney cunts, set us all free. Stop with the soporific paeans to schoolboy lust. Boring.
Neil Young - Powderfinger link - I'm just putting the powder in the barrel along with a big ass bullet to put us all out of your misery.
Eddie Floyd - Big Bird link Big turd.
Wire - the 15th link - I detest Wire. Art for artifice sake. Cunts.
Bruce Springsteen - Highway Patrolman link - CHIPS anyone? Tight pants? Questionable 80's leather jackets?Homo erotic subtext? I think Bruce embodies it all.
Last Poets - Black Soldier link As a piece of performance art is unimpeachable. As a choice in the BCB cup it smacks of base covering and desperation. Its not a song is it?
Ram Jam - Black Betty link - Black pudding more like.
Lightnin' Rod/Jimi Hendrix - Doriella Du Fontaine link - Much better use of Last Poets base covering. Its an interesting but insignificant Jimi project. Staright up funk - does not cut the mustard.
Ride - Like a Daydream link - Ride? Leave it 'til last I could do with an early night. Shoegazing? The only case for socks and sandals.
Yes - Roundabout link - Just like that 5 roundabout montrosity in Swindon. Never ending, ire inducing waste of time. With a wanker in a cape.
John Coltrane - My Favorite Things link - I have lots of favourite things. 10 minutes of snake charming aint one of them though.
The Specials - Gangsters link Much better Specials track.
The Beatles - She Said She Said link - Jumper K said speed was good for the Fab 4, psychedelics made them pussies. And responsible for all the subsequent shit bands that sound exactly the same as this. I'm talking to you Partridge, Mavers, that cunt out of the Zutons..
Esquerita - Rockin' the Joint link This is great. Official.
Dusty Springfield - Spooky link - Lounge tastic.

So we are left with the final vote. Its A isn't it? In Masterchef, B is boiled beef and carrots - worthy, filling but oh so dull. A is a cheese sandwich, toasted mind, but with a wasabi layer lurking on top of the butter.

Two good lists, but there's just more fun and energy to A, and the Dillinger, Bill Withers, Donna Summer, and Grandaddy tracks are particularly pleasing

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
