Desert Island III Album Game: Round 5, Heat 2

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the second heat of the fifth 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 the fourth heat of Round 4, LemonMacPhisto won again, this time defeating KhanadaRhodes by the score of 10-8. Khan still receives a point for finishing within three votes.

An update on the standings will be made available in the third heat of Round 5.

But first, we have Heat 2, which pits angelordevil against Bonos_Lemon. Below are the tracklistings.

If you don't know the songs, or wish to hear how each tracklisting flows, leave your e-mail address and we'll help you out.

From Apathy to Ascension, or "What I Think About in the Shower"

It's hard to ignore the darkness that surrounds us all at the moment. Whether it's global warming, the "War on Terror," or Aids in Africa, we're living and breathing in a time of heartache. Where's the hope? It could be right around that dark corner. It could start with electing the right politician, coming up with a brave new idea...or simply by sharing a bunch of songs that truly move you.

I wanted my tracklist to reflect a kind of arc...with an eventual exit point into something great. That "great" thing could be spirit, friendship, life after war, meeting aliens...love. I'll leave it up to you to decide.

Hope you enjoy!

Are Euphoria?

I approached this playlist with no real idea for
theme, I merely picked some of my favorite songs by
many of my favorite artists and made them flow. As I
was looking for an image to define my playlist, I
realized why these particular songs were my favorites;
they stir something inside me and this entire
arrangement is a drool worthy euphoric experience for
my ears. Many of my selections, I noticed, are songs
that begin slowly, building into something grand and I
feel that this image presents both the mellow and
energetic aspects of my playlist. So as you listen to
these songs I ask, are euphoria?

(3:52)

Break" - Between the Heart and The Synapse (5:18)

AOD has a great list and gets my vote, but if things stay the way they are, it might not be enough to advance to the quarters...

I voted for AOD but I think Bono's Lemon has a wildly creative playlist.

Good luck to the both of you through the rest of the game!
