Desert Island V Album Game: Round 2, Match 1

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the first match of the second 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.

In the last two matches of Round 1, RegularBonoFan dominated Screwtape2 with a final score of 15-2, while hardyharhar has his first victory in defeating bono_212, 10-2.

Here are our current standings:



We're ready for Round 2. First up is Zootlesque and LemonMacPhisto. 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.


Forum name: Zootlesque

These Boots Are Made For Knockin’

As the title suggests, this playlist is filled with panty droppers! But it is not all slow bedroom music. Everyone’s definition of the word “sexy” is different. Some associate it with smooth jazzy R&B numbers. Some think of sexy rock riffs and lyrical innuendo. And some others may prefer stylish dance party music. I have tried to accommodate all of that and much more. There are a few unconventional picks that might make you go WTF until you pay attention to the lyrics or get into the groove. Anyway, everyone’s interpretation is different and I hope there’s enough on here to please all of you listening. So dim the lights, burn some incense, grab a drink, sit back and enjoy.

Hey fellas, I’m back again with another list for you guys. This time around, I wanted to try and make a list that’s fun to listen to, diverse, and well constructed. This contest has always been a fun creative exercise for me, and I think this is the most fun I’ve had creating a list and its peripherals. Originally, this was a 2 CD set split with 18 songs each, but the length went over on the 1st disc, so that was shot. Instead, I broke it up into 4 sections and used that as an opportunity to make some covers for each:

The first section is more dance/electronica-oriented, with a shot from Predator serving as the cover, which actually served as the music video for Ratatat’s “Mirando.”

The second section is a darker progression, with the shot of Jaws serving as visual irony for this section’s title. “Please” is meant to end the first half, not really meaning to go into the Weezer track well at all.

The third section digs more into that ‘90s alt rock sound then ending with Adam Sandler’s magnum opus, “The Goat Song;” the cover here comes from Fight Club.

The final section takes a more lighter approach and is my favorite part of the entire list; the cover is a shot from Raging Bull, referencing the closing line in Jake La Motta’s opening monologue.
So yeah, that’s about it. I hope you all enjoy listening to the list and give me some feedback on what you liked, didn’t like, etc… I’m incredibly psyched to hear everyone else’s lists and get crackin’.

LMP. One of the best playlists in the competition, in my opinion.

Zoots, I apparently gave you another hard group to be in. You can thank my hat.

That's okay. I have already completely lost interest in my own playlist.

My DI-6 list might surprise you folks.

YLB FTW. Arguably my favorite this time around.

Zoots' draws continue to suck. It's a shame.

Thanks, guys.

Zoots, you know I like your list, but I'm voting for mine because I'm a maverick.

I think I should have maybe saved the sexy list for a mini game. Since there was a theme, I found myself choosing from a limited pool of songs. And when that happens, it's hard to find that balance of personal favorites AND broadly appealing songs. 160 min is long enough that it almost warrants a themeless list of songs that sound great together. This is my objective next time around. Of course, I did have that philosophy with my earlier lists but I have a good feeling this time around.

There's a lot of stuff on LMP's list that I didn't enjoy, but with such a diverse disc, you're bound to expect that. He did good, see.

I haven't listened to Zoot's yet, though. I'll reserve the vote.
