B but i'm not a fan of either to be honest. I can't believe i voted for a list with that annoying Moloko song, but it's still a good bit better than A.

see brassneck..'s comments above
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, though I'm not that arsed. A seems a little manufactured.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

B is more my thing. A could have picked better songs from its chosen artists.

B please.
It feels more like a 'personal' selection.

There are missteps on both. Emmylou's Jambalaya is rather ordinary. But the Bob Lind, Cornershop, X Ray Spex and Sandie Shaw are even worse.

The Buzzcocks provide the theme for B. A is not much better with the puzzling Emmylou and Hendrix choices but "Fopp" and the Porticos should be rewarded.

If you could put B's. Sw 5 on a's first 10. That would be great.

Can't decide.
