Two of my favorite lists, but A shades it on variety

I wish B's new ones were a bit more outside of BCB's wheelhouse, but there's no getting around the fact that it might be the only list where I like every single song.

These are two absolutely EXCELLENT lists. Its a shame to vote against either. The hit rate on B is really hard to beat. Sorry A

Two lists I can really enjoy, shame they had to meet here.
B is just a bit more to my tastes as they stand. There's a wonderful bit in that live CCR clip which made me smile - as John F is picking out the notes at 1:16, he does an ecstatic slide to the left when Tom comes in with that stinging little 2-note figure. Transported by his own song and band! Love it.

There's no rule of course that you can't pick tracks from last year, and i'd be more than happy to uncover some new gem from the last twelve months, but Jeez Kendrick Lamar AND Courtney Barnett. Raiding the top of the year end lists just makes me think is that the best you can do.

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
