Desert Island III Album Game: Round 2, Heat 8

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the eighth and final heat of the second round of the Interference Desert Island Game III! 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 Heat 4, LemonMelon barely held off PlaTheGreat in a very close contest, winning 12-11. Pla still earns a point for coming within four votes, however, which could be crucial as we move on.

With Round 2 halfway through, here are our current standings:

Well, here it is. My desert island playlist. I did not have a theme in mind, but wanted to choose some of my favorites and put them together to share with others. Almost all of these artists/bands strike some chord in me. I couldn’t live without the power & passion I feel when I hear these. I could be very happy just listening to them over & over, especially stuck on this “desert island”.

BEHIND CLOSED EYES

Behind closed eyes. With headphones on. That is how you experience the beauty of these songs. I went out of my way to pick the most gorgeous songs that exist in my itunes. I didn’t want to make it a testosterone filled rock fest so you’ll find a generous helping of pop and other music too. And since one of the main objectives of this contest is to expose others to new music, I did not choose the most popular songs or bands. Also, I hope you’re all open-minded when listening to this album because more often than not, you may not hear what you normally expect from some of these artists. For example, if you hate Oasis because of Liam’s nasally yell, you’re in for a surprise. Enjoy!

DISC 1
1. Björk – “Joga” – Homogenic (5:04)
2. Pink Floyd – “Marooned” – The Division Bell (5:28)
3. Led Zeppelin – “Tangerine” – Led Zeppelin III (3:10)

6. Pearl Jam – “In Hiding” – Yield (5:00)
7. R.E.M. – “The Great Beyond [Edit]” – The Great Beyond (Single) (4:13)
8. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – “Learning To Fly” – Greatest Hits (4:01)
9. Oasis – “Little By Little” – Heathen Chemistry (4:05)
10. U2 – “Staring At The Sun” – Pop (4:36)
11. Radiohead – “(Nice Dream)” – The Bends (3:53)
12. Elton John – “The One” – The One (5:55)
13. Kate Bush – “The Fog” – The Sensual World (5:10)
14. Tori Amos – “China” – Little Earthquakes (5:02)
15. The Eagles – “Desperado” – The Very Best Of The Eagles (3:33)
16. Dire Straits – “Brothers In Arms” – Sultans Of Swing (Very Best Of) (4:55)
17. Sting – “Fragile” – Fields Of Gold: The Best Of Sting (3:53)

Lila gets my vote this time around. Lots of great oldies.

Zoots' list is pretty strong for me in the first half, but the second half trails off a bit.

It's looking like Groups 2 and 4 are going to come down to the wire as to which two in each one advances. Very close.

Zoots first disc gets my vote.

6. Pearl Jam – “In Hiding” – Yield (5:00)
7. R.E.M. – “The Great Beyond [Edit]” – The Great Beyond (Single) (4:13)
8. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – “Learning To Fly” – Greatest Hits (4:01)


12. Elton John – “The One” – The One (5:55)
13. Kate Bush – “The Fog” – The Sensual World (5:10)
14. Tori Amos – “China” – Little Earthquakes (5:02)


Lila has more songs I like and uses them very well. She just can't match that first disc. Great playlist though and a great road trip playlist.

Best of luck to the two of you through the rest of the game.

When the next Desert Island competition comes around, you most certainly can join. Screwtape2 and Axver run the tournaments (I do the polls for them as they aren't premium).

I'm not sure when the next one will be. It will probably be held off a bit as there is a mini-tournament coming up next (a concept album-type game). Probably sometime after that. So just keep watch...

So many good songs on these. A very hard vote. I obviously really enjoyed Lila's playlist, as she earned my vote last round. Zoots has some awesome songs, although there are others mixed in that I don't care for, but the ones I like, I really like.



Very close, but I'm going with Zoots.
