Presumably a different ’The Light Pours Out of Me’ by a different Magazine to the one from round one?

Hopefully a different Kiki Dee from the one I remember, too ;)

Yes, I thought all tracks had to be unique in the cup?

They're supposed to be- this one slipped by me.

Let me hold this tie up for a sec and debate this with the person who submitted this track.

Both pretty sweet, both new to me.

I think I might just prefer B

The Kiki Dee is the kind of mainstream mid 70s pop I was hoping to hear more of, but it doesn't quite cut it for me. It's all a bit too bombastic power ballad territory for me.
Love that Darondo track with its sweet key changes. It manages to be both gritty and smooth, a tough trick to pull off!

I've not heard B before - very Al Green, isn't it? Pleasant enough but not much actually there.

The Kiki Dee track was actually on my shortlist, so it's A for me.

B

That song gets me every time. Darondo rules. If Al Green had been a pimp instead of a preacher.
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
