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

Played a few links from A's new five and was distinctly unimpressed. B doesn't entirely convince me, but there's certainly more good than bad.
They've lucked out with this draw for sure.

A for Michael Rother !

I don't know a single song in the new fives of either. I'll give it to A for the Glen Campbell pick.

Probably B, just about. Both are closer to "OK" than "good" for me.

Boy, I guess I have to pick one of these, huh? Both have some great moments but suffer a bit from trying to hit all the BCBases. As a result everyone's gonna hate a little something. B has less that I find dismissable.

A for Grisby Dyke. I liked that. Plus Sitting Still is a good REM pick, I love that one,

B is penalised for including Jacques Dutronc.

Much to recommend both lists. The additional 5 though just shade it for this.
