Desert Island IV Album Game: Round 4, Match 5

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the fifth match of the fourth 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.

This round kicked off with a close one, as Screwtape2 won his third in a row, defeating bono_212, 12-9. bono_212 receives a point, however.

AtomicBono and the tourist get the second half of Round 4 going here. 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.

I don't think so. for the record yours is my favourite (besides my own of course). I especially like the first album, Shoes. but i like how they each have their own feel yet still all kinda fit together

good luck!

This was a very difficult decision, because I think these two are the best from Group 3, and hopefully they'll move on.

AtomicBono just had way too many killer cuts to be ignored, though, so she gets my vote.

Bumping these up as it seems we have less votes so far for these matches.
