Desert Island Album Game: Semi Final 2

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the second 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 first semi final, VertigoGal achieved a decisive victory over inmyplace13 by 22 votes to 8. This means that VertigoGal qualifies as our first finalist!

This semi final shall determine who will meet VertigoGal in the final, and it features tracklistings by Bono's shades and LemonMacPhisto. 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.

Lots of great songs on both compilations! But LMP wins for including Floyd, Oasis, RHCP and the totally fun Eat The Rich.

After some deliberation, I've gone with Bono's shades: the inclusions of One Tree Hill and Crowded House helped, and I think that the opening of Bono's shades's first disc is the best of any in the competition. ... besides mine

Midnight Oil-Beds are Burning is the song that clinched the deal for me!

Where do I vote for your mix again? Because I still think it's the best of the bunch.

I still need to think about this match-up. There's quite a bit on each of the mixes I like, but some deal breakers on each, too.

surely hard, breath-freshening candy will help you think about your vote.
