A is giving me violent urges.
B is a bit of a novelty too, but an entertaining and committed one.

I don't like the lyrics of A.
I like the music of A (surprise to me)
I like the irony of A

I kinda appreciate the humour of B but I don't like the song or delivery.

I think I'm missing the point of A. But B is so bad that needs to be voted against.

An undeserved vote for A

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

I've got no time at all for the original of A, but strangely a country version isn't proving as much of a Fish repellent as I expected. I mean, you could argue it's another novelty thing, but that would be harsh, and the band sound like they're enjoying themselves rather than doing the studied hipsterdom of the previous rounds' novelties.

B is shit, isn't it? I guess there's a chance you might find it funny, but it's not as good as Animal doing Fever, either technically or for the lulz. Yes, the lulz. Tiresome.

Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

B, novelty or no, sounds great, and appropriate, in Spanish.

A is...inoffensive. That's not a compliment.

Two bands I never heard of covering two songs I don't think I know. Oh joy.
a - never knowingly heard any Snoop Dog, although I admire his recreational habits. I'm not that keen on the good ole boy sound generally, but I found myself enjoying this. Killer banjo, and some nice bass playing. Actually, it just keeps getting better, although it ends pretty abruptly. I'm even prepared to say that was fun 6 / 10
b – oh, it's the Arthur Brown chestnut. This is the third or fourth entry in this cup that's basically a version in translation. While this may add to the pleasure of non-Anglophoe monoglots, it doesn't affect me at all. This is OK, in the way that Arthur doing his silly dance in his silly hat was OK, but worth no more to me than 4.5 / 10

Jeepers. I can't with any conscience give a vote for either of these.

A was all a bit too hillbilly for me.
B is a curio which probably doesn't merit too much attention, but I thought it was funny how much the singer got into playing his "evil" role.
But yeah the novelty of hearing psych classics sung in Portugese or Spanish is already beginning to wear rather thin.

B is badly sung in Spanish and doesn't improve on the original.

A is cool (and has a banjo :P )

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

B is too close to the original, but I love this sort of thing anyway.
