Desert Island IV Album Game: Round 5, Match 1

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the first match of the fifth 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 4. Remember, the top two from each group moves on to the quarterfinals.

Back in Match 5 of the fourth round, AtomicBono pulled out a 10-8 win over the tourist. The tourist still picks up a point.

On to the last round, with bono_212 going up against LJT. Below are the tracklistings.

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

I have tried to the best of my ability to make this a list of songs I would like to have with me if I were trapped on a desert island. However, not only did I use up most of my absolute favorite songs on my last list, I also realize that theme and flow are important to this contest, so I attempted to make both coexist (no pun intended) peacefully. What resulted was rather shocking, because I discovered that most of the songs covered several things that had been very emotionally troubling or upsetting to me over the last year or so. There are songs snuck in throughout the list that are just there for my own entertainment, such as the lead track, but it’s obvious my political fears found there way into the music for about five tracks. There are a few tracks that represent the sense of loss I felt at the death of my Grandmother, as well. The major part of the play list, the last ten songs or so, are almost all about how I felt when I found out that my best friend, who I was starting to fall in love with, was gay. I’ve tried to put the songs in an order that I felt was representative of our relationship, but I think the order really only makes sense to myself. Mixed in there are a few instrumental tracks I like, and a few songs about the sense of loss I felt over friends when I made the jump from high school to college. Overall, I’m rather happy with the list, and only wish I could’ve put a few more tracks on, but I just could not make them fit.

Auntie Annie's/ Katy Daly's

It's quite a loose concept that I went with. It's based on probably the two places I frequent the most in Belfast. Auntie Annie's being quite electro, random music, while Katy Daly's the bar inbetween my two other regular haunts, just seems to play the most obscure and random music. The first half is therefore to groove/ dance to (well probably aprt from the first song) with the second half being quite obscure and random. Overall I think i've enjoyed this playlist more than any of the others I've created so I hope you folk have a good time listening.

10. Blonde Redhead- "The Dress"- 23 (4.00)
11. The Knife- "HeartBeats"- Deep Cuts (3.51)

LJT. His list deserved a better fate, IMO.

LJT -- it's one of my favorites in the competition. Bono's has tons of great stuff too -- kudos for including Peter Gabriel's Secret World.
