Desert Island III Album Game: FINAL

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Well, here we are. We've made it to the final of the Interference Desert Island Game III! The premise of this game was that all of the Interferencers had been stranded on a desert island and we could 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 was to see which forum member could fit the most musical goodness into these 160 minutes.

Before we get to the final, congratulations are in order for inmyplace13, who has clinched third place in the tournament with a 11-7 victory over Screwtape2 in the penultimate match. Great job imp13, and well deserved.

The last two standing are phanan and LemonMacPhisto, who is no stranger to finals here. Updated figures for our two finalists:

Forum name: total competition points, won, lost, tie, votes for, votes against, votes difference

phanan: 18, 6, 0, 0, 79, 40, +39.
LemonMacPhisto: 15, 4, 1, 1, 62, 49, +13.

LemonMacPhisto needs to win outright for the championship, as phanan holds the advantage in tiebreakers.

Below are the tracklistings.

Connections

I tend to view my playlist as a book of short stories, each one different from
the next, but having an overall theme of connections between people and how
those connections impact their lives. From soldiers to models, or from lovers
to friends, these songs produce a snapshot of how different people handle things
in their own, unique way, yet together they show how strong those connections
can be.

Enjoy!

Since this competition is more artistically slanted, I changed my approach to making this playlist. This playlist is structured to work as an entire body of work, two halves, or four mini-lists (or Acts. if you will), all with openers and closers, unique moods, flow, and whatever kicks ass. It was hard this time around sacrificing somewhat superior songs for other mood-enhancing, still great tracks. That being said, here’s the deal on everything. I really wanted to create a cinematic experience with this list, which feature songs from some of my favorite movies. I was also inspired greatly by Pink Floyd’s epic “Dark Side of the Moon” in how to create a list of songs that can work as an album and by themselves and also by Passengers, and how the music acts to scores for fictional films. As the list develops, the tone may change from song to song or fade into each other as one moving piece. The format is like an iPod format, but it’s structured like a mixtape, I just didn’t want to deal with the time constraints. They’re a bitch.

The transitions between the songs are important here, both musically and lyrically. Lyrical bits in some tracks might be mentioned again in another, if you listen for it you’ll catch it (“Sunken Treasure” to “Nobody Home” is a good example.) Ah, I shouldn’t have to explain all this, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about when you listen to all of this. I hope you all enjoy my playlist and especially everyone else’s, and from me, LMP, to you, I just want to thank you for listening to me and letting me be a part of your life today. Because you’ve got a good life! …You got a good life! Sorry, I couldn’t resist the Prison Mike ref, have fun listening!

No offense to LemonMacPhisto but this isn't even close. Phanan has the best remaining playlist. Good luck to the both of you!

Phanan's list is excellent, it truly does deserve to win after steamrolling everything so far.

But I still hope to make it close.

Gotta go with phanan's list. It was a really fun listening experience, and I liked being exposed to a lot of new bands that seem like they're right up my alley.

LMP's list has lots of great songs too.

Phanan, if only to break the chain or perpetual dominance.

Wow, maybe LMP's reign is about to come to an end ...

It's probably no secret that my vote goes to phanan, whose tracklist is probably the best in the tournament besides Screwtape's.

‫‬**‪‫‬**҉So is that the playlist you like best? Or the one which you'd rather spend some time with if trapped on a desert island?

I'm a bit surprised that this isn't closer.

Kind of funny how the quarterfinals were very close and dramatic, yet since then it's been the opposite.

Well, Phanan's playlist is better too though, so I'm not being a total douche.
