I have loads of time on my hands, so I just renamed all the tracks according to the list posted on the first page of this thread.

The numbers are in the track titles Screwtape threw together, but I wanted to know what I was listening to.

And of the artists I don't know, I don't know who or what the song is... Is it just me?

Downloading the second link now, but have to leave soon...
Unfortunately, his links weren't tagged and I didn't have the time to. You have to tag them yourselves matching the track number to the song. Sorry.

This is fun -- the track numbers on the MP3 files don't match the track list on page 1, so I'm playing "guess the song"! <smile>

That's what I'm trying to say!

3,5,6,7,8 = Smashing Pumpkins, Springsteen, Queen, U2, Elvis Presley

I know this came up earlier in the thread, but I'm just now getting around to putting the lists onto my iPod, and there are 8 songs on angelordevil's list that I won't be able to listen to.

I'm sure the protected files just go unnoticed, or maybe some don't realize they can't be played on other computers, but if people want their whole list to be heard, then they just can't use those tracks.

I just think maybe it needs to be a reminder up front, so participants are on the lookout for that sort of thing when constructing their lists.

Just my $0.02.
Good idea, and to elaborate further, we should identify which formats should be downloaded when doing this. Perhaps limited to say, mp3 and aac (unprotected), or something like that.

It would be a nice nostalgic thing that honors those great matches, playlists and people. We would do this after every Desert Island Game. Great idea, bad idea or have I simply lost my mind?
I like the idea, but I don't think it would be needed after every competition. Wouldn't be much of a Hall Of Fame if it happened so often.

Yeah, that's what I've been doing.

I'm also getting a lot of static on some of the songs.

It's a good playlist, though.

Yeah, I was thinking of increasing the number of people and playlists to four then doing this again when it feels right. Let's see what Axver has to say and go from there.

lot of static here too, especially on Presley. I'm on an unknown song. Must search for it (-2 seconds)

This could be interesting, but I agree with those who think we shouldn't do it too regularly. Perhaps just once a year?

Alright, once a year then.


People can start posting those nominations or e-mailing them to me. We are looking at people who deserve a spot based on career work, playlists that belong in the hall of fame and the best matches.

You know, I think the Symphonic mini-tournament that follows this one is going to produce some really creative entries. I think it would be better to hold off on the initial Hall of Fame until after that one has finished.

Just my opinion. I think that little tournament is going to be the most diverse out of any and produce some amazing stuff that would be very HOF worthy without having to wait another year to recognize it.

I agree. My new thought is that we do it in two steps. The first covers Desert Island 1, 2 and the prog game. The second covers this current one and the next mini-game. What I mean is that we get a top 5 from the first three games and a top 5 from the next two. Then after we have a final ten that people will break down to the five inductees. That would make sure there is diversity in terms of the games. All we would do at this point is reach a top 5 from the first three games. Would you be okay with that?

EDIT: This would also make it more far to those in the first game.

Okay...


This is the plan for the Hall of Fame. People can nominate any person, playlist or match from the first, second, prog and now third Desert Island Games as well as the Symphonic Album game when it comes along.

When you nominate a person, just mention a few things they do very well. This all adds up to create a sort of "resume." There will be a multiple choice poll after the mini-game that features these nominees. You will choose those you believe belong in the Hall of Fame. The top 5 finishers will be inducted.

When you nominate a playlist, describe why it deserves to be honored like this. There will be a "resume" for playlists as well. You nominate a playlist from any Desert Island Game. At some point before the mini-game, the playlist nominees from Desert Island 1, 2 and the prog game will be featured in a multiple choice poll. You will choose those playlists you believe are deserving of being in the Hall of Fame. The top ten will go against the top ten of the Desert Island 3 and Symphonic Album poll, which will be the same way. The top 8 from those twenty will be inducted.

When you nominate a great match, just say why it was memorable. The nominees from all the games will meet and the top ten will be inducted as Desert Island Classics.

You can nominate by posting in ongoing Desert Island threads or just e-mail me your nominees at InaKafkaTragedy@aol.com. Have fun!
