Desert Island III Album Game: Round 5, Heat 3

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the third 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.

The last two heats of Round 4 helped to sort out the standings in Group 4 a little more, as BonoIsMyMuse won Heat 5 over Lila64, 10-7, and edge_2125 took the sixth heat over Zootlesque with a 12-9 win. Both Lila and Zoots finished within three votes and received a point.

Here are our up-to-date standings (through the end of Round 4):

To encompass the variety of music I listen to, I decided to go with two distinct moods for this playlist. The songs on the first disc, Disorder, are generally aggressive and urgent, cutting to the bone. This was the list for the generally faster, harder music I listen to. The awesome assault of "Spanish Castle Magic" sets the tone (note how it doesn't sound at all dated next to a Rage Against the Machine track). The more dreamy closer of "On & On" provides a perfect segue into the second disc, . ..Into a Dream, which is a much more mellow, atmospheric collection. "A Different Kind of Blue" was used to introduce the disc as such, and I couldn't imagine "A Day In The Life" anywhere on the list except as the last track. Ultimately, I tried to pick songs that went together well but were also some of my favourites. Despite the diversity of the list, I wanted it to feel like one cohesive collection. My hope is that people will listen to this and see that, and maybe check out some artists they wouldn't have otherwise.

1. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - "Spanish Castle Magic" - Axis: Bold as Love (3:05)
2. Rage Against the Machine - "Killing in the Name" - Rage Against the Machine (5:14)

12. The Fall of Troy - "Whacko Jacko Steals the Elephant Man's Bones" - Doppelgänger (4:50)
13. Deftones - "Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)" - Around the Fur (5:08)
14. Sunny Day Real Estate - "Snibe" - The Rising Tide (4:29)

My original idea behind this was to have two separate CD's: One containing a "'pessimist" list, the other with the "optimist" list. The idea came from listening to Pink Floyd's "The Wall" as it tracks the mental breakdown and then a small buildup at the end. I made it an unbroken iPod playlist to better suit the rules of the competition. It's meant to put a smile on your face at the very end and give you hope...if you are in fact trapped on a Desert Island. I took the idea behind the title seriously, as some of my songs definitely incorporate an "island" theme. Also, I love Top 40 hits and I wasn't about to go out of my way to out-indie myself for everyone. If all else fails, I've made myself what I consider a GREAT mix.

1. Pink Floyd - "Time" - Dark Side Of The Moon (7:06)
2. Nine Inch Nails - "Every Day Is Exactly The Same" - With Teeth (4:54)
3. The Police - "Message In A Bottle" - Regatta De Blanc (4:51)
4. Muse - "Map Of The Problematique" - Black Holes & Revelations (4:18)
5. The Rolling Stones - "Gimme Shelter" - Forty Licks [Disc 1] (4:32)
6. Peter Gabriel - "Red Rain" - So (5:38)
7. U2 - "Please (Single) [Strings Version] - Please Single (5:49)
8. John Lennon - "Working Class Hero" - The Very Best Of John Lennon (3:51)
9. The Beatles - "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" - Love (3:46)
10.The Flaming Lips - "Mr. Ambulance Driver" - At War With The Mystics (4:21)
11. Moby - "In This World" - 18 (4:02)
12. Radiohead - "Subterranean Homesick Alien" - OK Computer (4:27)
13. Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Wet Sand" - Stadium Arcadium - JUPITER (5:09)
14. Queen - "Bohemiam Rhapsody" - A Night At The Opera (5:54)

16. George Harrison - "Isn't It A Pity" - All Things Must Pass [Disc 1] (7:13)

Pla, again.

It's a relief to know that I've already beaten her, considering these last couple of heats she's been in have made her list look invincible.

That's why I voted for Pla. She did a masterful job in creating an amazing playlist. Again, I love the road trip feel of it. Great job to both contestants.

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