Desert Island IV Album Game: Round 2, Match 3

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the third match of the second 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.

Match 3 moves on to Group 2, as Cute Irish Bono goes up against Lancemc. 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.

Part 1 is about not living life to the fullness. You don't like life or yourself. Songs 1.- 5. are racy heavy rock songs about being angry with the way you life is turning out. Everywhere you go you are about to completely lose it. Songs 6.-9 are slower songs about calming down from your frustrations but you became depressed about your life. Around songs 10-13 the tunes became catchier. They are about a certain wisdom that comes into your mind. You've learned from your mistakes that there is more to your life than wasting it away with angry fists and sobs. So you decide to start to living, because life is short. This part carries on nicely to the next one. This part is mainly about discovering yourself.

Part 2 is about letting go of your pain and living everyday, because life is short! This part is about enjoying life because you learned many things about yourself and have accepted your short comings. So, just letting it all go and start celebrating life.

Intergalactic Pleasure Cruise is the next logical evolution of my Desert Island ideology. In a series of small journeys between the realm of the art, the popular, and the media rich crossroads that house their intersections, I offer a perhaps slightly-deeper-than-superficial examination of the harmonies, melodies, rhythms and associations of such that continue to grow and define my own persona. Classic heroic composers, 20th century poet philosophers, post-modern electronic deconstructions, comic-book swatches of cinematic panache… now firing stage-2 rocket clusters, steer clear of the black hole.

Part I: Thrust Into The Infinite

1. Richard Wagner – “Vorspiel” – Das Rheingold (Scene 1 and 2) (4:13)
2. LCD Soundsystem – “Losing My Edge” – LCD Soundsystem (7:53)

4. Sufjan Stevens – “Sleeping Bear, Sault Saint Marie” – Greetings From Michigan: The Great Lakes State (2:54)
5. Neutral Milk Hotel – “Ghost” – In The Aeroplane Over The Sea (4:09)
6. !!! – “Must Be The Moon” – Myth Takes (5:58)
7. John Williams – “The Planet Krypton” – Superman: The Movie (6:40)
8. Gustav Holst – “The Planets, Op. 32: V. Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age” – Holst: The Planets (7:45)
9. Panda Bear – “Search For Delicious” – Person Pitch (4:53)
10. Passengers – “Beach Sequence” – Original Sountracks 1 (3:32)
11. Bjork – “Alarm Call” – Homorgenic (4:20)
12. Radiohead – “Myxomatosis (Judge, Jury & Executioner) – Hail To The Thief (3:53)
13. Jim O’Rourke – “Bad Timing” – Bad Timing (10:00)
14. Bob Dylan – “Visions of Johanna” – Blonde on Blonde (7:33)
15. My Bloody Valentine – “No More Sorry” – Isn’t Anything (2:48)

Total Runtime: 79:44

Part II: Painless Reentry

1. Jonny Greenwood – “Oil” – There Will Be Blood (3:05)
2. Ludwig Van Beethoven – “Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op 68, ‘Pastoral’ – 2. Andante molto mosso” – Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 6 (12:42)
3. Patti Smith – “Birdland” – Horses (9:16)
4. Cat Power – “Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again” – I’m Not There (6:54)
5. Xavier Cugat – “Perfidia” – 2046 (3:01)
6. Emmylou Harris - “Waltz Across Texas Tonight” – Wrecking Ball (4:46)
7. The Magnetic Fields – “I Don’t Believe You” – I (3:42)
8. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – “Piano Concerto No. 21 – 2 Movement” – The Essential Mozart (7:22)

CIB, but it's close. Lance's list is pretty underrated, I feel.

This is kind of hard but Lance is losing so that makes it slightly easier, so yeah I go with Lance, this round should be more even.

I like both playlists but have to go with Lancemc for the classical and film music.

Good luck to the both of you.

I think Lance has come up with a unique playlist, but it's just not something I can get into.

And while CIB has some songs that I don't care for, overall I think her playlist is better.

I tried, but could never get into Lance's list, even if I do like the majority of the artists on there. I couldn't get into CIB's either, but to a lesser extent.

I don't know.

i LOVE CuteIrishBono's list. some great song selections - Gone, Where is Home, Do You Realize, Spread Your Love...

I really love the second half of Lance's list, but I'm not so into the first part.
