Desert Island Album Game: Semi Final 1

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the first semi 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.

In the third quarter final, Bono's shades just edged out Souly by 17 votes to 15, securing a place in the second semi final against LemonMacPhisto, who defeated BonoIsMyMuse by 22 votes to 15 in the fourth quarter final.

In the first semi final, we shall see the victor of the close three-way showdown, inmyplace13, confront VertigoGal. 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.

I'm not keen on either, but VertigoGal won my vote for (I think the same reason as why I voted for her in the quarter final) the inclusion of A Sort Of Homecoming and Ride's Vapour Trail.

VertigoGal, primarily for her exclusion of Radiohead, though also for her inclusion of the Pixies, Velvet Underground, Wilco, and several U2 songs I love. And because she includes female artists!

Both are great, but I have to go with VG, I just like hers better.

I'd be happy with both of them though.

They are both great, but I voted for VG. I wish she had some Radiohead, but I'm more than willing to trade that in exchange for having some U2 songs, including a couple of my favorites - Running to Stand Still and A Sort of Homecoming.

Tough decision, "Land Locked Blues" by Bright Eyes is quite possibly one of my favorite songs EVER, and "Instant Karma!" is my favorite John Lennon


But, VG's won because of some of my favorite U2 being on the list, and I agree with BonoIsMyMuse, she has female artists!


Plus, "Streets of Philadelphia"........

I'm getting owned.



And to those who said there aren't any female voices on my discs, you obviously didn't bother to listen to them. The second disc most definitely has female voices on it.

Close call for me, but going by number of songs I like a lot, VertigoGal wins 18-16.

Sorry, I listened to it way back at the beginning of the competition and didn't like anything I didn't already have enough to keep. VG still has more I like. It's a well-assembled mix, just not what I'd listen to on a regular basis.
