Desert Island IV Album Game: Round 3, Match 5

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the fifth match of the third 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.

Here are the standings after Round 2. Remember, the top two from each group moves on to the quarterfinals.

The winner of Round 3's first match was phillyfan26, who came out on top over bono_212, 12-9. bono_212 picks up one point for being within three votes of the winner.

For Match 5, AtomicBono and major_panic do battle. 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.

This tracklist is, quite simply, about a dream about a girl. However, as dreams often go, it is fragmented and yet coherent, questionable and yet sensible. It doesn't always make sense, but neither do dreams. The question is, is it a dream, or is it a nightmare?

The opening act, Dream, is the first part of the dream: drifting off to sleep, and awaking in an unfamiliar landscape. The second act, Loss, acts as an interlude where the girl is somehow spirited away, when the dream turns to a nightmare. The final act, Regret, deals with the loss and grief.

1. John Williams - "Cantina Band" - Star Wars Trilogy: The Original Soundtrack Anthology Disc 4 (2:46)
2. The Rat Pack - "I'm Gonna Live Till I Die" - Eee-O-11: The Best of the Rat Pack (1:55)
3. Red Hot Chili Peppers - "She's Only 18" - Stadium Arcadium (3:25)
4. Ike Kings Of Rhythm Turner's - "I Ain't Drunk" - 20 Great Blues Recordings of the 50s and 60s, Vol. 1 (229)
5. Glenn Miller - "Serenade In Blue" - The Best of Glenn Miller (2:35)
6. Frank Sinatra - "Strangers In The Night" - My Way (The Best Of Frank Sinatra) (2:35)
7. Oasis - "Lyla" - Stop the Clocks (5:11)
8. Queen - "Killer Queen" - Queen's Greatest Hits I (3:02)
9. Mark Sholtez - "Melita" - Real Street (3:45)
10. Elvis Presley / The Jordanaires - "Can't Help Falling In Love" - Elvis: 30 #1 Hits (3:00)

phillyfan26 is out of town for a week and has requested his vote be manually added to the matches he misses.

For this match, pfan's vote goes to major_panic.

As I've previously mentioned, I really like AB's playlist this time out, so it gets my vote here.

I went with major panic this time--these two are very equal in my eyes in how well they were put together, so, since major panic was getting destroyed, they get my vote.
