Desert Island Album Game: Quarter Final 1

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the eighth and final heat 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 last of the heats featured the highest margin of victory this competition is likely to see, with BonoIsMyMuse defeating MacPhistoPT 35 votes to 4. This means BonoIsMyMuse progresses to a quarter final against LemonMacPhisto.

This first quarter final features the notable three-way clash that resulted from the tied result of the second heat. In this quarter final, inmyplace13, LJT, and MrBrau1 are all competing for a place in the first semi 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. This poll will be open for TWO DAYS.

LJT. His inclusions of The Verve's A New Decade and Delays' Wanderlust are what made all the difference.

I'll stand by what I said last week. I think MrBrau is the one to beat for the rest of the competition. A lot of diversity, and a lot of gutsy transitions (Willie Nelson to Bob Marley looks so wrong, for instance, but it's seamless). A great mix, and one I think it would take me awhile to get tired of.

Incidentally, Axver, I added you as a friend over at Live Journal

I decided to go with Mr. Brau. All three are great, but Brau's had too much variety and too many songs I love to pass up, even with the inclusion of Crackling Rosie and Only the Good Die Young. I hope earplugs are an option to take with us for the desert island so I can put them in when those two songs are played.

tough decision. the imp's tracklisting has the most songs that I love, but brau and LJT have a little more diversity. must ponder.



btw...I'll be out of town for my quarterfinal, so uh, if anyone wants to vote for me with their alter or something that'd be cool.

Had to go with MrBrau's list. Diverse.

inmyplace didn't even have a U2 song, but had some of my other faves (Lennon, Beatles), but wasn't enough to sway my vote.

You had me.... but then...... Bjork.........man,anyone but her! Nevermind..............Goodluck!
