A just gets this one - mainly good stuff with a couple of tracks that would make a grown man retch.

I guess A, but honestly neither list really gets me going.

B

Baby Huey and Funky Nassau?! Excellent!

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

A is so warped that I'm phoning the men in white coats to take the list away, but not before voting for it as I want to see what the hell its got up its sleeves for round three. And Regulate is a great track.

Both lists have great pop moments, but I see a bit more vigour in list A; plenty of great choices already, now with the added attraction of 'Chewing Gum' and 'Regulate'.

Great stuff, which leaves me wanting to know what's coming next. (And I'm prepared to overlook that bizarre Mental As Anything choice.)

Pretty weak, both, and the new ones ain't helping. But B still has Timmy Thomas.

Two entertaining lists but A has dropped in 3 or 4 bankers like Don't Worry Baby and Suspect Device.
