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

Both are strong, but B unfortunately includes Elvis Costello, making A an easy choice for me.
1966 and all that

B, although I like the Terence Trent D'Arby in A...just not enough.

B is starting to look like a contender to win. It doesn't have the individual personality of some of the lists we've seen, but it is pretty assured stuff nevertheless. A is solid but rather uninspired.

I know we've seen comments like this already but I really can't get with the logic. To each his own, I suppose.

As for the lists, I think B's a cracker. Hell, I probably like it better than my own!

B - I agree that this is looking solid and a possible winner. The latest 5 are the least self-indulgent new ones of the round so far. Everyone else is stretching out a bit, making the odd risk, but B just lays down even more undisputed classics. I'd probably prefer some more interesting choices for some of the artists, especially Bobbie Gentry, but there you go... Really impressive.

A is good too.

Both have a few I don't like, but B has fewer of them.
