Desert Island V Album Game: Round 4, Match 8 (Revised)

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the eighth and final 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.

Mr. V dominated impy13 in the fourth match, winning 11-3 (including Ali's vote).

The last match of Round 4 has hardyharhar looking to remain undefeated against Alisaura. 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.

Hardy Har Har's Desert Island 5 Playlist

With about a day to get this thing together, the only theme I could come up with was to be loosely semi-autobiographical through songs I've known and loved. A few that take me to specific places. Brought back a couple from my retro set. Lifted The Pretender's from Vintage Punk's. I think this list would be a great set to take a long drive to. It may have changed a bit if I had more time but I like it just the same. Hope you enjoy some of it.

Part One - Awakening (Whatever you say, Kath)
Still under the influence of my big sister, I'm dependent on her collection and I spend many hours daydreaming to her more folk leaning LPs. However, her parties during the 60's at our house and friends who attended open my eyes to a world I wanted to be a part of, but would have to wait 'til 1971 & high school for. I'm able to observe the summer of love
from a distance.

1. The Everly Brothers - "All I Have To Do Is Dream" - The Everly Brothers' Best (2:22)
2. Music Explosion - "Little Bit O' Soul" - Little Bit O' Soul (2:21)
3. The Beach Boys - "Don't Worry Baby" - The Absolute Best Vol. 1 (2:48)
4. The Beatles - "You Can't Do That" - A Hard Day's Night (2:38)
5. The Doors - "Hello, I Love You" - Greatest Hits (2:15)
6. Cream - "Strange Brew" - Disraeli Gears (2:49)
7. The Who - "Substitute" - Live At Leeds (2:07)
8. Pink Floyd - "See Emily Play" - Relics (2:53)
9. Elton John - "I Need You To Turn To" - Elton John (2:33)

Part Two - Reckoning (hey man, schoolday's insane, hey man, my work's down the drain)

The day I turned 16, I got my driver's license and that night I began a food delivery job with older guys. This was the catalyst to a downward spiral that lasted a decade or so. King Missile's Cheesecake Truck fit nicely. Mott the Hoople's All the Way From Memphis was the song playing as I walked into my first high school party. Editions of You was a Roxy live staple and is from their 2nd & final album with Eno. The rest, groups and songs I liked during the70's & early 80's.

Already a big Zep fan, Led Zeppelin was not my first concert. However, it was the concert that showed me exactly what I had been searching for. Like U2's Elevation tour, Zep strolled out onto the stage to no hoopla, Bonham burst into the opening beats of Rock 'n Roll, a song I loved, and a fairly naive 17 year old was instantly blown away. This version's first minute or so takes me right back to that moment I remember so well. The excitement of the crowd's roar, Plant's initial wails, the instantaneous maelstrom of teenage anarchy all
around my girlfriend and I. Everything and anything going on. No parents around with their kids in those days. Ha!

One constant through these years was the music. Great shows, bands & songs all the way through those crazy nights. I've ended it with the obvious and wonderful Rock 'n Roll Suicide. By my late 20's, I knew this lifestyle had to end.

10. King Missile "Cheesecake Truck" -Mystical Shit / Fluting on the Hump (1:11)
11. Mott The Hoople "All The Way From Memphis" -Mott (5:00)

17. Stray Cats "Stray Cat Strut" -Stray Cats (3:18)
18. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers "American Girl" -Greatest Hits (3:29)
19. The Kinks "Sleepwalker" -Sleepwalker (4:04)

27. Midnight Oil "My Country" - Earth And Sun And Moon (4:51)
28. David Bowie "Rock & Roll Suicide" -Ziggy Stardust (3:02)

Part Three - Redemption (Life Gets Better, Yeah!)

I don't know what Lila saw in me, but she liked me and basically saved me in everyway that a person can be saved (lifted from Titanic, lol). So I've included here songs & groups we have enjoyed together. And our greatest achievement - Maddy, an angel sent to us from heaven - contributed a couple of songs I like quite a bit, turning me on to Speed of Sound, Storm in a Teacup, and Shut Up and Drive. I'm a lucky guy.

29. Vangelis "Chariots Of Fire" -Themes (3:31)
30. Mike Oldfield "Arrival" -QE2 (2:49)
31. Crowded House "Distant Sun" -Together Alone (3:50)

33. Oasis "Don't Look Back In Anger" -(What's The Story) Morning Glory? (4:48)
34. Coldplay "Speed Of Sound" -X & Y (4:49)
35. Pearl Jam "I Am Mine" -Rearviewmirror: Greatest HIts 1991-2003 Disc 2 (3:36)
36. Audioslave "Doesn't Remind Me" -Out Of Exile (4:16)
37. The Chemical Brothers "Orange Wedge" -Surrender (3:07)

45. The Raconteurs "Salute Your Solution" -Consolers Of The Lonely (3:00)
46. The White Stripes "Girl, You Have No Faith In Medicine" -Elephant (3:18)
47. Red Hot Chili Peppers "Storm In A Teacup" -Stadium Arcadium [Disc2] (3:45)

You've been working here for three and a half years. It's the longest you've ever been in the same job. Three and a half years of fixing other people's mistakes, solving other people's problems, cleaning up other people's fuckups, copping other people's shit. Three and a half years of boring, tedious work that you're not remotely interested in, and never were. Three and a half years of
"this will do until I get a better job", or "just until I get back from my holiday".

You're sick of it. You want out. You've had some meltdowns, but that was before you stopped giving a shit. Now you're sick of the apathy, on top of everything else.

And you know things could be worse, and that you have nothing to complain about. But somehow, that doesn't help.

Sometimes it feels like the only thing keeping you sane is music. For a few minutes at a time, you can escape, one way or another. Some tracks can pull you out of your own head and take you away somewhere (pays to be careful of those while driving). Some echo all the crap you keep bottled up... the futile frustration, the smothered violence, the self-indulgent wangst. Some of them are loud enough to drown out all the other noise in your head; and some just have a killer bassline that you can feel resonating in your bones.

However they do it, they allow you to forget, for a while, where you are.
