Desert Island V Album Game: Round 3, Match 2

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the second 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.

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

For Match 2, we have phillyfan26 facing off against GirlsAloudFan. 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.

Another tough choice. I like GAF's better overall, and I didn't really enjoy the last quarter of PFan's list at all (besides The Beatles track)

This is a close one. I thought both lists were well done, but I thought pfan's sequencing was better.

GAF. The flow may not be great, but he has the best set of songs in the tournament IMO.

I liked both lists but GAF's list has too many great songs and ones I relate to! GAF it is.

That he does... this makes it hard, you know? I want it to be close enough for both to at least get a point, but I'll hold onto my vote for a bit.

I do! Name your price.

And good luck to you too, PFan. I believe you know already that I loved your list.

Your opinion is of no consequence at all, YLB.

I love that Pfan is quoting Radiohead now. Axver had him for about half a millisecond.

Radiohead's all I've been listening to this week. The Bends is probably one of my ten favorite albums now.

Also, GAF is beating me. I repeat: me.

But, in all seriousness, I'm not pleased that I'm losing to Chicago's number one alcoholic. It'd be one thing if it was NSW, Chicago's number one douche. But GAF? PFan is better than that.

I repeat: PFan ... is better ... than that.

And by that, I mean that one.

And by that one, I mean GAF.
