Desert Island IV Album Game: Round 1, Match 7

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the seventh match of the first round 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.

For every win, each player will receive three points. If there is a tie, each player gets two points. If a player loses a match but is within three votes of the winner, that player will earn a single point.

At the beginning of each round, I will include the updated standings. Remember, the top two from each group moves on to the quarterfinals.

For the fifth match, AtomicBono defeated BonoIsMyMuse, 10-7. However, BonoIsMyMuse still receives one point for being within three votes of the winner.

And so we come to Group 4, with Match 7 starting us off. The duo of Irishteen/Lemonchick get to go up against two-time champion 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: Irishteen/Lemonchick



7/7/7

The inspiration for this playlist was very simple - each day represents the seven days we spent together from the moment we first met until our last moment together. On the first day we met by a fountain (hence the cover image), and each one of the songs describes either the mood of the day or the topics of conversations we had. The Backstreet Boys was more of an inside joke (and I'm responsible for it - Lemonchick), and we know it's a pretty risky choice for this game but it just fits...so we couldn't get rid of it...and we hope it doesn't completely ruin our chances. Day two actually takes place during the evening, we went to a concert (Final Fantasy and Do Make Say Think) and then the other songs are just ones that fit the mood of what happened afterwards. The third day takes place in a variety of places...but mostly a cemetery and hopefully explains itself, except probably the Book I Read which is there because I randomly took a book from her and started reading it, yes I'm weird (Irishteen).Day four is (we hope) self-explanatory. While the last three days are just songs we like and we think fit well with the story and hopefully flow decently into one another, only a couple of them are there for a real reason like the Pulp song.

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.

Two strong playlists -- tough choice. Will have to listen to each list once more before voting.

Voted for LMP, and I have my reasons.

Irishteen/Lemonchick's list has a great concept. Great. However, it's chopped up so much that the flow doesn't feel quite right to me. Along with that, several Smiths-related songs and a cast of tracks that simply aren't to my taste bring it down for me. Still very well executed.

LMP's list is just a blast to listen to. It has the same flaws his lists have every year, but with a greater emphasis on funk and some strong segueing, it's as good as ever.

Ditto. I like I&L's list, but LMP's is mothafunkin' hot.

I forgot to mention that Khan requested I manually add her vote to the totals, as she is away this weekend.

For this match, Khan's vote goes to LMP. Please keep in mind that one extra vote will be added to LMP's tally.

When I sorted out my overall thoughts, LMP's was one slot ahead of this pair.

LMP's just had a little bit more overall flow.

Another note - the next round will begin on Monday, in case people still need to listen to a few more playlists. We have four who haven't competed yet.

I've gone through both of these playlists now, and wow, two very good playlists.

In the end, I had to go with Irishteen and Lemonchick. I loved the song structure, and it was full of tunes I really enjoyed.

I'll give you a mulligan on the Backstreet Boys.

LMP, as usual, has another strong effort, and the songs flow very well. I would vote for his playlist in most matches here - that's how close this match is for me.

So did not for herself either.

Although in all honesty, I really did enjoy LMPs playlist, it just put me in such a great mood and I'll most likely be voting for it in the future.

Love the cover, btw.

Thank you. Kudos goes to L-Mel for helping call the audible on the cover and making it on MS Paint.

Daniel Plainview will live to drink milkshakes another day.

I went with Lemonchick/Irishteen. Their playlist was beautiful and heartfelt. People know I'm a romantic so I was a sucker for that angle of the playlist. The whole experience was wonderful. Knowing the two of you a little bit made it that much cooler. I loved that you used Spanish Eyes and Interlude. Those were great choices.

Good luck through the competition and your relationship.

Now LemonMacPhisto I liked yours as well. I liked a lot of the song choices. It had some great moments. It sucks that you are in this tough group because I would like to vote for you more than I think I will.

Here's some of what I liked:
4. Prince & the Revolution - “Kiss” - Parade (3:46)
5. U2 - “Mysterious Ways - Achtung Baby (4:03)

18. Miles Davis - “My Ship” - Miles Ahead (4:24)

21. Arcade Fire - “Black Mirror” - Neon Bible (4:13)
22. Pink Floyd - “One of These Days” - Meddle (5:15)
23. David Bowie - “Moonage Daydream” - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (4:40)

Good luck.
