Desert Island V Album Game: Round 1, Match 3 (Revised)

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the third match of the first round for Interference Desert Island V! The premise of this game is that all of the Interferencers have been stranded on a desert island and we can only take up to 160 minutes of music with us (either as a continuous iPod playlist or two 80 minute CDs or any other format of our choosing). The object is to see which forum member can fit the most musical goodness into these 160 minutes.

For every win, each player will receive three points. If there is a tie, each player gets two points. If a player loses a match but is within three votes of the winner, that player will earn a single point.

At the beginning of each round, I will include the updated standings. Remember, the top two from each group moves on to the quarterfinals.

One final note: If you haven't listened to all the playlists, and you don't think you'll have time to get through them, I would urge everyone to at least review how each playlist is structured and, if possible, to check out the sequencing and flow of the songs. I'd also take the time to listen to a song by an artist you are unfamiliar with, or any song by an artist you usually dislike, as sometimes you may hear something you never thought you would have from that artist.

Our first match has ended, with phillyfan26 taking a convincing 14-3 victory over Zootlesque.

Next up is Group 2, with the tourist and phanan. Below are their playlists.

If you don't know the songs, or wish to hear how each playlist flows, feel free to check out the Desert Island website.

'Murder by Knife (or, Intimate Knowledge of My Enemy's Final Moments)'

"In keeping the story loose, here are the concepts, in chronological order, in
which they appear:

+ John and Clarissa are in love and fall asleep together.
+ John awakens the next morning to find Clarissa had gone out in the night and
has been killed.
+ John spends time alone on the bed they shared, contemplating suicide.
+ Emotion and rage build within John, a turmoil boiling to the surface.
+ John finds the Clarissa's killer and, with the killer tied down to a chair,
sharpens knives.
+ John murders Clarissa's killer, claiming revenge, and bathes in the sweet
glory of his vengeance.
+ John is discovered over the body of Clarissa's killer and is sent to prison.

espite the fact that there is pre-tagged artwork for this entry, there are no
definite sections (i.e. Q:"did they fall asleep during the Spiritualized track,
or was it during the Porcupine Tree track?" A: "Whenever you feel they've fallen asleep.")"

Tourist's list was well constructed and has some surprisingly good tunes, but ultimately it didn't match up with my tastes. Phanan's did, so he gets my vote.

This was a toss up for me. I liked the first half of both of your lists, but I kinda lost it on the second half of both as well. But Phanan, had a few tracks that I still liked, and while they both flowed well and everything, I had to go with Phanan.

This is a tough one... There were some stand-out awesome tracks on tourist's list, although for me the first half wasn't really my thing. I really dug phanan's list as a cohesive whole, though... I'm going to have to go with his this time.

11/9 - MSO: Mussorgsky | 30/10 - MSO: An American in Paris | 1-7/11 - Canberra | 20/11 - MSO: Sibelius' Finlandia | Aug'16 - Canada?


Even the last of the Time Lords is helpless against kittens.
