Desert Island Game II: Qualifying Round 3

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the third 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 second qualifying round, liamcool bore the brunt of an absolute thumping, going down 28-3 to Screwtape2. Screwtape2 is now our second qualifier for the heats, while Liam will get another chance in the repechages.

In this round, dazzlingamy and FitzChivalry will be competing for the third spot in the heats. 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.

Also, a quick appeal: there were a few errors on the master list, such as paragraphs being misplaced and overall times omitted. If your playlist was victim to some sort of error, please let me know before your round. Either PM me or post on this thread. Tell me what the mistake is and what the details should be. Thanks!

dazzlingamy writes: I chose my playlist with a few things in mind. I wanted a broad spectrum with lots of different genre artists, giving both the cruisy mellow music I love with a few rock songs thrown in, as I like changing playlists. I added a few of my favourite aussie artists that are possibly not well known outside of Australia. They are amazing artists, so check them out if you like what you hear. I love strings, and instrumental music, so there are a few of them in there as well. Basically it's a mix bag of my favourite artists. I hope you like it!

FitzChivalry writes: This tracklist centers around the idea that, if I was trapped on a desert island, I would want to remember all the people I love and can no longer be with, and many of the good times that I've had. So the songs in my tracklist ARE NOT MY FAVORITE SONGS and are NOT necessarily BY MY FAVORITE ARTISTS (I would never include a Queensryche song on a tracklist of my favorite songs of all time, but the song on here reminds me of my very first crush who made me go all weak and wobbly, hence, it's very special to me). Each song reminds me of either a person I love or a great time I've had, thus, these songs are the memories of my life, from growing up listening to my Mom and Dad's favorites (Allman Bros., Led Zeppelin, Genesis); to The Cure's "Plainsong" - the first song that ever made me cry; to my college days (7 housemates and I on a weekend trip to San Francisco to see Oasis, getting drunk in Chinatown and stuffing ourselves into a cab and singing "Champagne Supernova" at the top of our lungs the entire way to the concert; to coming out of the closet and cutting my baby-gay teeth at club OZZ; to my friends introducing me to the beauty that is Brit-Pop. These are the songs/loved ones/memories I would take with me if I were to be stranded on a desert island.

Have fun!

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Obviously, dazzling amy, (and not just cause she's from Melbourne). The presence of Eskimo Joe, Athlete, Josh Pyke and Morrissey/Smiths is too good to ignore...

Mind you, fitzchivalry's list had merit. Chem Bros, Daft Punk, Oasis, Moby......

both are really good.....

Both playlists are very good, and I even think I might like dazzlingamy's a bit more, but Fitz gets bonus points for his memorium-theme, so he gets my vote this round.

Oh, and you can't beat closing a playlist with Everything in its Right Place.

Local Time: 05:57 AM has the beats

Bjork, Chem Bros, Pulp and Radiohead seal the deal.

Dazzling's playlist was excellente as well I just found more variety in Fitz's.

Wow...GREAT lists!

Hmm...I think I'll take Fitz's list. I simply appreciated the Steely Dan mention.

I think this will be a close one!

Both of these lists were really, really good but in the end I went with amy's - The Smiths won me over.

I hate having to vote people off, especially knowing how hard it is to make a tracklisting.
