Desert Island IV Album Game: Semifinal, Match 1

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the first Semifinal match 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.

In the quarterfinals, Lara Mullen narrowly defeated KhanadaRhodes, 10-9; LemonMacPhisto upended the previously unbeaten AtomicBono, 12-7; PlaTheGreat/the rockin edge steamrolled over Screwtape2 by the score of 20-8 (with a little help from their friends); and phanan took the last match, beating the tourist, 14-4.

Congratulations to our four semifinalists for making it this far.

Semifinal, Match 1 will be Lara Mullen against 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.

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.
