Desert Island V Album Game: Round 3, Match 5

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the fifth 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.

Round 3 started off with Zootlesque capturing his first win of the tournament, beating DreamOutLoud13 by the score of 11-2.

Match 5 features The Sad Punk and AtomicBono. 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 Sad Punk

It's, like, there's like this concept where this guy falls in love, and is just completely rapt with this girl. And then he begins to realise that she's sleeping around, which just canes this guy. That's the first half. The second half, he delves into a world of womanising and gettingfuckedup that he didn't know existed beforehand. I actually had something written for this, but this will suffice, I think.

The two main genres are soul and shoegaze, but there's other stuff too. I have never really done something like this before, so I hope you can get something out of it.

I love interpretation, so I won't go with a track by track thing. Also, I'm desperately running out of time. But by the end of the second disc, I just imagine that the protagonist is nearly dead, ruined by an excess and longing of the woman he was with from tracks 2-8. The last instrumental part of "Time", the very final track, really could mean a lot of things. I don't know if it means he goes out again and does all that crazy shit, or if he's gone insane, or if he's killed himself, or killed someone else. Anyway, I figure it's not pretty.

I hope you enjoy this muchly.

AtomicBono's Desert Island V: Surviving Another Summer

I had no theme in mind when creating this playlist. It's simply a list of songs I love that I think flows well. I did end up dividing it into sections in a vaguely thematic way, but I want this to be viewed as one big playlist - I just think it's easier to split it up in case people don't have enough time to listen to it as a whole. I don't expect people to love every song on this list, but hopefully the sheer diversity of music will be appreciated. There should be something for everyone.

"Because a senator - a politician - a person - who can let hang in mid-air the prospect that she might just be sticking around in part, just in case the other guy gets shot - has no business being, and no capacity to be, the President of the United States." -- Keith Olbermann

Bumping this so it stays on the first page.

I'll make up my mind later.

I had to think long and hard about this one. It was very close, as both lists had several songs that I didn't care for. I thought AB's list was constructed very well. Bonnie's was really different, featured several artists that don't get used too much that I like, and was sequenced pretty good.

I ended up going with Bonnie, but it was pretty even. Hopefully she'll get a point out of this.
