Desert Island V Album Game: Round 4, Match 2

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the second match of the fourth 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.

Match 2 features LemonMacPhisto 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.

Hey fellas, I’m back again with another list for you guys. This time around, I wanted to try and make a list that’s fun to listen to, diverse, and well constructed. This contest has always been a fun creative exercise for me, and I think this is the most fun I’ve had creating a list and its peripherals. Originally, this was a 2 CD set split with 18 songs each, but the length went over on the 1st disc, so that was shot. Instead, I broke it up into 4 sections and used that as an opportunity to make some covers for each:

The first section is more dance/electronica-oriented, with a shot from Predator serving as the cover, which actually served as the music video for Ratatat’s “Mirando.”

The second section is a darker progression, with the shot of Jaws serving as visual irony for this section’s title. “Please” is meant to end the first half, not really meaning to go into the Weezer track well at all.

The third section digs more into that ‘90s alt rock sound then ending with Adam Sandler’s magnum opus, “The Goat Song;” the cover here comes from Fight Club.

The final section takes a more lighter approach and is my favorite part of the entire list; the cover is a shot from Raging Bull, referencing the closing line in Jake La Motta’s opening monologue.
So yeah, that’s about it. I hope you all enjoy listening to the list and give me some feedback on what you liked, didn’t like, etc… I’m incredibly psyched to hear everyone else’s lists and get crackin’.

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)
16. Evanescence - "Good Enough" - The Open Door (5:31)
17. Passengers - "Slug" - Original Soundtracks 1 (4:41)
18. Tori Amos - "China" - Little Earthquakes (5:00)
19. Dana Fuchs and Martin Luther McCoy - "Oh! Darling" - Across the Universe Soundtrack (Deluxe Edition) (2:31)
20. The Appleseed Cast - "Fight Song" - Two Conversations (4:14)
21. Bat For Lashes - "What's a Girl to Do?" - Fur and Gold (2:59)
22. Jars of Clay - "Tea and Sympathy" - Much Afraid (4:51)
23. Duran Duran - "Come Undone" - Duran Duran (4:38)
24. Bell X1 - "Eve, The Apple of My Eye" - Flock (4:03)
25. R.E.M. - "Star Me Kitten" - Automatic For the People (3:16)
26. U2 - "So Cruel" - Achtung Baby (5:49)
27. The Beatles - "Girl" - Rubber Soul (2:34)
28. Lisa Loeb - "Do You Sleep?" - Tails (3:53)
29. Linkin Park - "In Pieces" - Minutes to Midnight (3:38)
30. My Chemical Romance - "I Don't Love You" - The Black Parade (3:59)
31. Seether featuring Amy Lee - "Broken" - The Punisher: The Album (2:41)

On occasion, we sometimes have a participant who goes away for several days and therefore is unable to vote. Under those circumstances, if they request it, I will add their votes manually to the total.

Ali will be unavailable for the rest of the tournament, so her votes will be added. I will indicate in each match what her vote is.

For this match, Ali's vote goes to DOL13.
