Desert Island Game II: Qualifying Round 11

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.
Welcome to the eleventh qualifying round 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.
In the last round, U2VertigoFly won a tight match against MacPhistoPT in a 21-17 victory.

This round features tracklistings by Adrball and Bono_212. 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.
Reminder for contestants: if there was an error on your tracklisting on the master list thread, let me know before your qualifying round so I can post the correct tracklist!

From about the age of 8 I started to play the clarinet and Piano and got pretty good at both until I discovering 'other things'. The exams involved playing and listening to classical music and it's from here that I developed a respect for live performing when done well.

I hate manufactured crap (particularly from the 80s/90s) - the stuff that can't be reproduced live without it sounding karaoke. People who can play instruments get my respect. Others like Spice Girls, Westlife and Take That just annoy me. So you can tell why my love for U2 developed.

The tracklisting can be split into three groups - Classical, Bands, Non-Bands. There's quite a chunk of Non-Band tracks in here - for songs that wouldn't normally pass my 'respect test but do pass my 'whistle test' (Eg Modjo, Natalie Imbruglia, Pink), or represent events in my life.

Adrball FTW. There were too many artists that I couldn't stand on Bono_212's list.

The other round was set to unlimited by mistake. At the time this next poll began it was 21-17 in favor of U2VertigoFly. A mod should close that poll.

Did anyone let them know? We should probably at least make a post in the thread so people don't keep voting.

adrball's list has good variety.

bono_212 has some songs and/or artists that I truly dislike.

However, I enjoy more songs on bono_212's list, so that's the deciding factor for me.

Oh fuck...I'm up.


Bono_212....I really like your tracklist. Love Under Pressure and I was torn between RTSS and TUF.

Do I get to vote for myself?
