Desert Island V Album Game: Round 3, Match 3

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the third 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.

Our third match features the tourist and impy13. 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: the tourist







'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.")"

This is another fairly even match, but I'm going with the tourist. I liked a couple more songs on his.

Thanks. I voted for myself, too. Though I do have to give impy credit--his list was my inspiration to give another chance to Fleet Foxes.

It's a virtual toss-up for me, but I found myself enjoying impy's a little more, so I went with him.

Impy gets my vote on this one. Tourist definitely has a good list and a really cool concept but I enjoyed Impy's songs a bit more.

I can't decide. I listened to The Tourists list again to try and decide (I just listened to Impy's the other day) and I just...I can't decide between the two of them.

And the voting is so close too
