Desert Island V Album Game: Round 2, Match 4

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the fourth 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.

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

phanan and impy13 go head to head in our fourth match. 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.

I voted for myself because it's the only vote I'll get.

I still have the best cover art of the tourney though.

Just like match 3, this is very close. I prefer Impy's songs by a hair, but Phanan is awesome at getting his lists to cohere.

impy13, funny cover but most of your list is too indie for my taste. Phanan it is.

I almost voted against Phanan because of that shameless advertisement for that pizza place (926-1313, gang), but his list was just too good. Damn you, Phanan. Damn you.

I dig both lists, but prefer Phanan's by a slight amount.

This is tough because, like I said before, while I really liked Phanan's first half, the second half really lost me. On the other hand, Impy's was good throughout for listening to while I was studying, and that was cool. However, there wasn't any one song on their that I was really wanted to listen to again right away. So both lists kind of even out for me. I guess i give the slight edge to Phanan because I REALLY liked his first half a lot, and there were still a few things I liked about the second.
