Aserejé – Las Ketchup

Bravo, my man (or woman)!

Great list, great last 5...

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

This list that beat me keeps getting better and better!

Simon Dupree was in my next five. Doesn't he look like Dom Joly? I digress...

I like B's list a lot. That addition of Go Now (though I toyed with using Bessie Banks' in my own list) is a lovely addition, as is the George Harrison.

Kudos for B on picking a brand new track from an album not even released yet (I know it's been the single) but there's better stuff on the album. The rest of it is pretty strong but compared to A it comes over like a bit of a pipe smoking professor. A is patchy but I kinda like that and although I'm unsure if that Las Ketchup pick is either genius or insanity I'm happy to support it here...

If you've got nothing to do, don't do it here.

A has rather charmed me with its quirkiness and individuality over the course of the competition and I like some of its leftfield selections, however (you just knew that word was coming didn't you..) the likes of Las Ketchup is probably one quirky selection too far and you begin to notice that it has accumulated quite a lot of mediocrity in among its good picks. B is a list I've liked too, but I find its additional five has a slightly offputting stuffiness -it could do with something a bit more vital and electric in there (much as I like The Byrds track). That said considering the list as a whole there are more songs I can dig.

I don't know, I'm kinda 50-50 on both of these.

I guess A.
