Desert Island Album Game: Heat 7

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the seventh round 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 previous round was the closest we've had for a while, with Bono's shades just edging out Eliv8 by a margin of 16 to 12. Bono's shades shall now progress to a quarter final against Souly!

In this round, tracklistings made by hippy and LemonMacPhisto face off against each other. 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 TWO DAYS.

THE TRACKLISTINGS!

Forum name: hippy

hippy writes: The songs and artists I have chosen for this mix are my identity. Each note, lyric, guitar squeal, drum beat, and vocal wail have mattered -- DO matter -- to me. They are not only the soundtrack to my life, continually playing in my head, but they are also the songs and artists that have been the most fundamental in shaping my worldview. They give me a kick in the ass when I need it, they help me cry with tears of joy and sadness, they let me be a badass, and they make me feel not quite so alone in my thoughts and feelings.

Though they are sometimes cliche, not so obscure, some old, some new, these selections are heartfelt and truly express who I am and who I want to be.

Music is identity. Here's mine...


Disc A:
1.) Oasis - "Columbia" - Definitely Maybe (6:16)

I went with Hippy, both were very varied tracklists so twas a tough choice, but Teardrop by Massive Attack, Clannad and The Stone Roses as well as Janis Joplin sold it for me.

That being said I would honestly, not want to ever, EVER listen to The Streets

I don't want to potentially face one of these mixes in the next round!

Take that as a compliment

I voted for LemonMacPhisto because I felt like his was the more well-rounded mix (and because his had less Coldplay). hippy's mix is a good one, too, though. I especially liked "Run Devil Run," which I'd never heard before.

It was difficult, but I voted for LemonMacphisto's tracklisting because it had 50 percent less Coldplay and Beautiful Day is the one U2 song I would gladly forego ever hearing again.

Of course, go for it.

Now, no offence to you or to hippy, but right now, I'm trying to work out which tracklisting I dislike the least. LMP, your lack of Jet may be what wins my vote.

Ah. I knew you'd be prejudiced because of that.

Ooh, thanks for the tip on the link! I'd been wondering why they were all accessible except for that one.

I have to go with LemonMacPhisto on this one.

BonoIsMyMuse, if you liked "Run Devil Run," you should check out the full Jenny Lewis disc, "Rabbit Fur Coat." It's very good.
