Desert Island VII Master List, Part One

Let the listening begin...

As previously mentioned, each Master List thread will appear approximately two weeks apart to allow adequate time for hearing all playlists. Hopefully this will greatly enhance the experience for everyone involved.

I will be sending out PMs with links for these five playlists to all players, as well as any additional listeners who express interest in participating. As of right now, I've got hardyharhar and Screwtape2 on that list.

Here are our first five entries, in the order they were received:


LemonMelon



If I've gained a reputation for anything in this competition, it's perfectionism, particularly in regards to sequencing. I tend to spend a lot of time tweaking that facet of my lists, but this entry took that to an extreme; I have been working on this list (on and off) for the past 18 months, and the version of it you see today has been drawn from two other versions, tacking on a few of my recent favorites while taking the best unique choices from its ancestors. The result is, surprisingly, not a mess at all; you couldn't pass this list off as conceptual, but recurring themes of love, loneliness, restlessness and self-discovery pop up now and again. The original version of this list was comically diverse musically, but it has since cohered into something that I feel represents my tastes exceptionally well; if nothing else, this list will give you a reason not to bother with my subsequent entries...at least until I break out my Estonian chillwave list for DI13.

Track listing:

1. Joni Mitchell - "All I Want" - Blue (3:33)
2. The Velvet Underground - "What Goes On" - The Velvet Underground (4:52)

14. Willie Nelson - "Phases And Stages (Theme)/Washing The Dishes" - Phases And Stages (1:42)
15. Tom Waits - "Lonely" - Closing Time (3:10)

LM, if you could forward the links to Ashley since her PM box is full, that would be great.

The only other person whose box is full is Cute Irish Bono, so I'll have to email them to her.

These look great, y'all.

And it seems that Surfer Blood has officially stormed the Interference consciousness.

Couldn't choose just one. Ultimately I decided it made more sense not to include any just so his entire catalog is on equal footing.

THE BIEB!

Forgot to mention that everyone is encouraged to use the thread to post reviews or feedback of the playlists listed, in lieu of a running diary one.

I just noticed it's A Hazy Shade Of Winter instead of Celia in the 2nd spot on my list, but the time and the album are correct. Woops!

Not sure why they didn't work in the PM.

...and also, Ashley's links are coming up as invalid. All the rest are downloading just fine.

I'll probably listen to The Tourist's tonight while I'm studying for an exam (If a spot in the library with access to a power source will ever open up )

These look great, can't wait

ETA: didn't notice Liam's there. He'll be up first then.

Also, yes, I realize I am an idiot, I didn't notice until after I turned my list in that the very first two tracks on it are from the 70s/90s. Let's uh, just pretend like I did that on purpose.

I was going to post a few times as I was listening, but I'd forgotten we kind of ditched the idea of running diaries. Shame.

Anyways, the opening three tracks were just superb, great way to kick off the list.

Warren Zevon was probably my favorite track that I didn't already know

The spot with "Islands" and "Part II B" was long, but fantastic music to read about English history too

The list begins to be a bit of a test of stamina after a while, but the songs are good, so it's worthwhile to sit through them, I'm just not sure if everyone will feel that way.

Also love any chance to hear something by Phish without having to actively go out looking for it .

Pretty great list, Liam. Really enjoyed it, fairly mellow, which was cool. Didn't really flow too well, but, the song selection more than made up for it.

Also, a brief comment on the list - I wrote it all up in about ten minutes off the top of my head, so it's more just a collection of songs, I suppose.

And yeah, good luck with the long songs, guys.

Nice... I need to attempt to upload mine again. Stealing from the neighbors means a mediocre internet connection.

I'm gonna start listening to Imp's while I make island plans. I've got almost two weeks off of school
