A. Although it kills me to vote against Please Let Me Wonder.

EDIT: I'm going for B, after some thought.

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

A makes a belated attempt to introduce some soul in its list but I don't find the choices very imaginative or inspiring. There's something pleasingly quirky about B, although there's real meat there too (the Public Enemy choice for example). "In Dreams" and "Shame, Shame. Shame" are both great picks.

I think B deserves to go the top and take the cup! What a great list!

I like where A is coming from, but those new choices are treading water. B is actually improved by its new choices. There's still more I like in A's opening salvo, though.

I'll be damned if B, already one of my favorites, hasn't just gotten even better. To the finals with you!
