Desert Island Album Game II: Heat 3

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the third heat of the Interference Desert Island Game II! 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.

Despite expectations that the second heat would be close, LemonMacPhisto defeated inmyplace13 by a ratio of 2:1, or 20 votes to 10. LMP now advances to a quarter final against GibsonGirl.

In this heat, Lancemc and bono_man2002 are competing for the first spot in the second quarter final. 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.

THE TRACKLISTINGS!

Forum name: Lancemc

Lancemc wrote: My playlist was originally envisioned as a showcase for the beauty of music. It included the entirety of Beethoven's 5th Symphony spread out throughout the playlist. It opened with Beck's Sexx Laws, and followed with the first two movements. It was funny. The third movement divided the playlist in half, and the final movement closed the playlist, with R.E.M.'s "Find the River" as a sort of Coda at the very end. I thought it was beautiful, and probably a more cohesive playlist than what I'm currently offering. It worked well as a solid unit. But the problem was that I could only fit in like 25 other songs. I needed more. That and the fact that a lot of people probably wouldn't appreciate 50 minutes of classical music, and that would probably hurt my chances in the competition. So I scratched the idea, and started anew. This time I just tried to fit in as many songs I could from my favorite artists. The songs I selected aren't necessarily my favorite song from each individual artist, but I feel they represent everything I love about each artist as a whole (also keeping in mind the time constraints, which limited my choices a bit). Then I did my best to make a listenable 160 minute playlist out of all this junk. Not a whole lot changed as far order goes once I had my artists in line. Specific songs continued to switch in and out during the whole process though. And a few quick deadline decisions were made just hours before I finalized the playlist (including swapping R.E.M's "I Believe" for "Electrolite", Bob Dylan's "Simple Twist of Fate" for "Shelter From the Storm", Pink Floyd's "Sheep" for "Time", and the very late addition of a Wilco track). Overall, I think this current incarnation is the best my playlist has ever sounded, though I could probably continue to tweak it forever. Why is my playlist the best? Well, I tried to keep it accessible, with some of the most beautiful song's I've ever known. I let a few odd balls in, like the Sugarcubes and Brian Eno tracks, but they're good for depth. And I couldn't possibly think of a better way to end such an epic musical journey than with The Boss's most beautiful song, "New York City Serenade". So sit back, relax, enjoy the rockers when they come, and enjoy my music.

There's some serious crap on Daniel's list, but there are also some seriously awesome picks that really set his tracklist apart from Lance's. Pink Floyd? Dream Theater? Porcupine Tree? Joy Division? Crowded House? And excellent picks in all five cases? I can go for that.

Both lists are pretty equal. I went with BM2002 though had I voted a minute later I might have said Lancemc they are that equally matched.

Lance's list is alright, but very little stands out as great to me. I would have preferred it if he had stuck with his original tracklisting; that would have made this round a tough choice, but I probably still would have voted for Daniel as his list has some of my favourite bands and songs even if it is blighted by such inclusions as Green Day, The White Stripes, and The Killers.

Yeah, if we were just starting this competition again today, my list would looks almost completely 100% different, and better in every way. I almost am beginning to hate my current list because of the changes I would make now.

That said, it's still pretty nice, and I voted for myself this round.

If you had included Sarah Blasko in that list, you may have lost that Pack of Tim Tam's I Owe you

No worries there, I'm not familiar with Sarah Blasko's material.

Now, when will you next be in Melbourne? I'm hungry.

Both of these are very good mixes, but Lance won me over with that, plus his choices of Dylan and Wilco.

Both lists are good, but Lance's list borders with flawless as far as I'm concerned, so my vote's got to go to him.

Ah, the first close match of the round
