Desert Island IV Album Game: Quarterfinal, Match 2

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the second Quarterfinal match of the Interference Desert Island Game IV! 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.

Match 2 is AtomicBono and LemonMacPhisto. Below are their playlists.

If you don't know the songs, or wish to hear how each tracklisting flows, feel free to check out the Desert Island website.


Forum name: AtomicBono

This playlist was made with the following in mind:
1. What I've been listening to lately.
2. Introducing some music many may not have heard before.
3. Creating a journey of sorts, with each song flowing into the next.

This is not a specific story, more of just a very loose narrative, easily adapted to whatever story you want to tell. I thought of it as a romance, but it doesn't necessarily have to be that. Part I is about hope - the wonder that is potential. Part II is the world either standing still or spinning much too fast - sometimes it seems like everything is so perfect that nothing could go wrong..but then it does. Part III is getting in too deep - obsession, depression, anger, insanity. Part IV is a bittersweet ending - everything's gonna be alright, but that doesn't mean it doesn't hurt, or that it all turned out the way it should have. Even though I divided the playlist up, it's best listened to as one cohesive list. The divisions just represent a general change in the mood, and make it easier for people who don't have time to listen to the whole thing in one sitting. Plus it gives me the license to come up with long awesome titles for all of them.

THE MOST POLITICALLY INSIGHTFUL PLAYLIST THIS SIDE OF 'BATTLESTAR GALACTICA'

I’ve been working on this list for quite a bit of time now, but still don’t have too much to say about it. I really wanted to put something together that gelled, had a style and flair to it unlike my previous lists, while still being representative of my tastes. I’m all about cohesion on this one and trying to make each transition between songs sound effortless and deliberate. I started out with an idea for an over-arching theme and story, but ultimately abandoned it because it was too tedious and tenuously connected together. Any list should be about the songs within them; if you don’t like them, it doesn’t matter if it’s the most brilliantly concocted list ever, then it’s not worth it. While saying that, I hope you all enjoy my list, as I and my son and partner, H.W. Plainview, are looking forward to hearing yours as well. Also, the title and cover are both all in good fun, I do not want to be politically insightful nor drink anyone’s milkshake... it’s just my nature.

Pretty close -- both lists have a lot of songs I like and some that I don't. LMP just gets the edge.

I think AB's list is one of the best of the whole tournament.

I expected the opposite actually.

Yours was a great listen, too. One of my faves this time around. The first 2 sections were probably my favorite of anyone's lists.

AtomicBono's is right up there with my favourites and I really do love it, but if I were to be stranded on a desert island then YLB's just wins out.

I'm a bit surprised at this one so far, given that AB was undefeated in the regular rounds.

My guess it that group 3 was just a lot thinner than group 4.

Man LMP, I found your list very interesting! A lot of the 70s R&B/soul stuff like Bobby Womack and Miracles etc. I'd never heard before! Was happy to finally get the James Brown and Sly & Family Stone tracks... great stuff overall!
