Both fit rather snugly into the curate's egg category beloved of the cup. I think B has more of the egg and less of the curate.

I've got a very short attention span and flicking through so many songs is a bit off putting.
However despite Little Milton being the best of the new bunch from both lists it has to be A overall.
I run out of talent

Haven't much liked A to begin with if I'm honest, though it did make me smile nicking the mighty Heifer's Mental As Anything choice..cheeky!
B is turning out to be pretty fantastic I must say. Love the Chi-Lites, Smiths (my favourite song of theirs) and Thunderclap Newman choices. By some distance..

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

B barely takes this one, but I really don't need to hear Oh Girl or Something In The Air ever again.
If you've got nothing to do, don't do it here.

Even though A put me out and I like it, I really like the extra five on B's List. A tight one (oo er). B it is.

B casts its net a little wider, and its new 5 features three kinghits in the astonishing Chi-Lites song, the Thunderclap Newman classic, and a great Smiths track (off my least favourite Smiths album, admittedly). There's already a lot of great stuff on the list, so those tracks are the proverbial icing. Nicely done.
