Desert Island Album Game: The Winner!

After a month of voting, discussing, and debating, Interference has chosen the 2 CDs it would most want to have if we were stuck on a desert island with no other music to hear. And our winner, the Interferencer who the forum believes managed to cram the most musical goodness onto two eighty minute discs is ...

LemonMacPhisto!

In the final, LemonMacPhisto overcame VertigoGal by 31 votes to 20. LMP, you don't get a prize, sorry. In fact, I think you owe some of us money and food as bribes for voting for you.

But you do get to see your name at the end of this amazing work of art!



And here's the tracklisting that won the tournament. If anyone would like to hear it - or most of the other tracklistings from the tournament - just leave your e-mail address and we'll help get the music to your ears.

This is me right now (in the back):



This was a great contest idea, and there were some really great songs I wouldn't have heard if it weren't for this. Thanks to everyone for being a great sport about this and thanks to all who voted for me, the checks are in the mail

I'm thinking it'd be an interesting idea for people to list new music they discovered and now like because of these mixes. I've heard some pretty good new stuff, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who has.
