Desert Island V Album Game: Round 3, Match 1

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the first match of the third 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 four matches of Round 2, The Sad Punk edged Lancemc, 7-6; LemonMelon torched AtomicBono, 12-1; hardyharhar handled Screwtape2, 14-2; and RegularBonoFan held off Alisaura, 8-6. Both Lancemc and Alisaura receive a single point for finishing within three votes of the winner.

Here are our current standings:

Kicking off Round 3 is Zootlesque and DreamOutLoud13. 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.

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.

Perilous Desire

This is my first time participating in DI and my playlist may not be a conventional one. Rather than focus on segues and flow and dynamic, interesting songs, I chose to tell a story with my playlist. It is, of course, a love story. It started one night when I was listening to the first track of this list, and I went "I want to start my DI list with this song, and make it a love story.", so I did. It starts with the very beginnings of a relationship, and everything is happy at first... but soon it begins to disintegrate, and we move on into break up songs, and then the aftermath. The first and last songs could sort of be considered the prologue and epilogue, with everything inbetween serving as the story, although exact details about things like what caused the breakup and who was at fault, are left up to the imagination and interpretation of the listeners. The list contains a lot of mainstream, 'pop' songs, simply because I have admittedly strange, often bad taste in music, and because that's a lot of what I usually have on hand, but I think the songs themselves tell the story well. Flow and segue was really not my main concern, and yes, there are a couple of jarring segues. The song that caused the most trouble in that department was the first, because it's from an album where all the songs flow seamlessly together, but as it was my inspiration, I was determined to use it, and so I had to overlook that.

1. Madonna - "Future Lovers" - Confessions on a Dance Floor (4:51)
2. Jet - "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" - Get Born (3:34)
3. The Killers - "On Top" - Hot Fuss (4:19)
4. Björk - "It's Oh So Quiet" - Post (3:39)
5. Robbie Williams with Nicole Kidman - "Somethin' Stupid" - Swing When You're Winning (2:46)
6. Elton John - "Your Song" - Elton John (4:03)
7. Shakira - "Rules" - Laundry Service (3:41)
8. No Doubt - "New" - Return of Saturn (4:27)
9. Taylor Swift - "Our Song" - Taylor Swift (3:23)
10. Muse - "Starlight" - Black Holes and Revelations (4:00)
11. Depeche Mode - "Enjoy the Silence" - (4:22)
12. INXS - "Never Tear Us Apart" - Kick (3:05)
13. Snow Patrol - "Chasing Cars" - Eyes Open (4:28)
14. Jewel - "Near You Always" - Pieces of You (3:09)
15. Jim Sturgess - "Something" - Across the Universe Soundtrack (Deluxe Edition) (3:02)

I'm going with Chass on this one. Flow on hers isn't good, but I like the songs a lot more
