Desert Island Album Game: Grand Final!

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the grand final of the Interference Desert Island Album Game! The premise of this game is that the Interference forum has been stranded on a desert island and we can take only TWO CDs of up to 80 minutes of music each. The object is to see which member of the forum can fit the most musical goodness onto these two CDs.

The winner of the second semi final was LemonMacPhisto, achieving a close victory over Bono's shades by 21 votes to 18.

And now we've reached the last round of the competition - the grand final between VertigoGal and LemonMacPhisto. Which one has packed the most musical goodness onto two CDs? Below, you will find their tracklistings. If you are unfamiliar with the songs included, we can help you hear them! Just leave your e-mail address. This poll will be open for THREE DAYS.

I like the idea of another competition. There were so many artists and songs I love that I simply didn't have room for on 2 CDs.

But if the same people do another competition, would the songs differ that much?

I should've worded that better, I meant for people competing the second time around.

It wouldn't be fun without new people!

If we run it again, shall we make it a different format of media? Say, a tracklisting for an MP3 player?

I wouldn't want the tracklistings to be too much longer though, as there's already plenty to listen to and compare. Maybe we could do just a straight 160 minute playlist with no CD break?

I think we should do decade cds.

or atleast pick specific 10 year periods, and make 2 cds out of that.

example:

Disc 1 - 1980-1990
Disc 2 - 1990-2000

or the straight 160 minute thing would be cool.
