10 good ones on each list, so either I flip a coin or vote Crystals - B it is.
1966 and all that

B certainly errs on the safe side, there's a lot of cup favourites there, but it needs a list which can match it for quality while at the same time showing greater imagination for it to lose. A is too inconsistent to offer that kind of match ( it was in with a good shout, but has let itself down with its new five).

Great lists, but A is still the winner despite a couple of shameful missteps.

Do the smilies represent the only tracks on a list you actually like?

B

The other list is just way too singer-songer for me.
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's new five are clearly better than A's; it was a lot closer up to that point. Again, both very good lists though.

Oh totally B for me this time! Indeep - I love this and I had Kites in my list last year.

Yes, not totally poppy but a good deal of fun - even with that slappable woman from Camera Obscura. :lol:
