Desert Island V Album Game: Round 5, Match 8

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the last match of the fifth 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.

In Match 4, KhanadaRhodes beat impy13, 7-5, for her first victory. impy13 picks up a point for finishing within three votes.

Our final match is bono_212 and 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.

This list was my attempt to REALLY make a list of songs I like. I realize I've said this about each list, but I really feel that it wasn't true for either of the previous competitions, especially DI 4, as I knowingly attempted to make a list others would like, and in turn, did not actually enjoy myself. This time I've stripped most of that away, and created a list that not only I enjoy (a
great deal) but that I also think others can find something to like about as well. There was a conscious effort however to keep the lighter tracks on one disc and the semi-heavier ones on a second, hence the split.

Also I used this list as an attempt to pay homage to some bands I've recently really begun to love, such as The Dresden Dolls and The National.

Finally, the Meat Loaf song is on there for a reason. I wanted to put songs I love on the list, and not try to do something that I'm not, like I did last time. So I picked what I hoped would be the most extreme song by him, but what also happened to be one of my favorite songs by him, as sort of a part of all that. I almost didn't do it, as I realized how much people would hate the song, but at the same time, it felt wrong to myself to leave it off, and so, please bare with its inclusion.

There's nothing else I can think to say so I just hope you can find something to like, and just generally enjoy listening. Oh! One more thing, the cover art for disc two, as well as pretty much all of the song placement were contributed/Constructed by LemonMelon, before he came along, it was one disjointed mess.

Escapism

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.

I

01. U2 - "Beautiful Ghost/Introduction to Songs of Experience" The Joshua Tree [20th Anniversary Bonus CD] (3:57)
02. The Edge - "Rowena's Theme" Captive Soundtrack (3:57)

04. Jakatta (feat. Seal) - "My Vision" My Vision (single) (7.47)
05. Gotye - "The Only Way" Like Drawing Blood (4:49)
06. The Bloodhound Gang - "Fire Water Burn" One Fierce Beer Coaster (4:52)
07. Iron & Wine - "Woman King" Woman King EP (4:21)
08. Paul Kelly - "Maralinga (Rainy Land)" Gossip (4:00)
09. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - "The Mercy Seat" (single edit) The Best Of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds (5:08)
10. Joy Division - "Twenty Four Hours" Permanent (4.27)
11. Muse - "Showbiz" Showbiz (5:16)
12. My Chemical Romance - "Mama" The Black Parade (4:39)
13. Pearl Jam - "Leash" Vs. (3:09)

If Ashley wins and Reggo loses, she's in.

If they both win, it will come down to the point differential.

Ashley gets my vote here.


Phanan, if Ashley wins this match, is my quarterfinal match against her? I think group 3 plays group 4, if I recall correctly.

That's correct.

To be honest, I screwed that up. Last time, I think I had Groups 1 and 3 go against each other, and then 2 and 4. Oh well.

So, if I have it correct, the current match-ups are:

phillyfan26 v. Mr. V
Phanan v. GirlsAloudFan
LemonMelon v. bono_212/RegularBonoFan
hardyharhar v. AtomicBono/Axver

Is that right?

Actually, I didn't screw it up. I just checked how I ran DI4, and it was the same.

So the quarterfinals look to be:

Match 1 - phillyfan26 vs. Mr. V
Match 2 - LemonMelon vs. bono_212
Match 3 - phanan vs. GirlsAloudFan
Match 4 - hardyharhar vs. Axver

Then the semifinals would be:

Match 5 - phillyfan26/Mr. V vs. LemonMelon/bono_212
Match 6 - phanan/GirlsAloudFan vs. hardyharhar/Axver
