Very, very fine lists. I have to give it to A this time, as it's wall-to-wall excellent, really. My kind of stuff.

B is far from the worst list left but is a little too uneven. For Smokey and Dusty

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's choice of the Rockford Files theme is good, but it's not linked to the originally broadcast version of the song.

People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.

A doesn't really put much of a foot wrong (the Yeah, Yeah, Yeah's track is pretty dull..but you can't have everything). I thought in round one it was a really strong list, but perhaps went for the populist jugular a little too much in its tendency for short, sharp pop thrills. I think with its additional five its added a welcome depth and variation. I'm especially pleased with the Gladys Knight and Iggy selections.
B deserves credit as well and it would beat 80% of the lists. The Rockford Files is inspired.. fuck kitsch, this is a genuinely exciting piece of instrumental funk and it wins the UK folk battle; that Pentangle track is much better than A's Fairport pick. It is hampered though, it must be said, with a few second division artists. Anyway...

Both inconsistent with moments of greatness. A's the one that beat me, so of course I want it to go all the way now. The usual for what's advancing these days- solid but safe- though the new ones do increase my enthusiasm for it slightly.

Both inconsistent, but there's more good stuff on A - that's a good Yeah Yeah Yeahs song.
