Desert Island VI Album Game: Quarterfinal, Match 1

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the first Quarterfinal match for Interference Desert Island VI! 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.

The remaining matches of the final round have been completed. impy13 held off coolian2, 9-7; Mr. V completed his undefeated run with a 11-3 pasting of phillyfan26; bono_212 also went 4-0 by running over Joey788; and phanan slipped past onebloodonelife with a 8-7 victory.

And with that, here are the final standings:



pfan won the tiebreaker over impy in Group 3 based on a superior vote differential.

The quarterfinal matchups are as follows:

Match 1 - the tourist vs. LMP
Match 2 - Mr. V vs. phanan
Match 3 - gump vs. GirlsAloudFan
Match 4 - bono_212 vs. phillyfan26

the tourist and LMP will kick things off. Below are their playlists.

Quarterfinals today.
Semifinals tomorrow.
Third place match on Wednesday.

Then, I'm unavailable Thursday and Friday, so the final, which will be 48 hours long, will start next Monday.

I totally forgot to send in my votes last week and missed rounds four and five. I think I lost both of them.

I'm going with YLB here. His list was just all kinds of awesome.

I just realized I lost my match against Impy purely because I didn't vote. Whoops.

Yeah, it's a good think your differential was better. If you both were tied there, that head to head matchup would've cost you.

Man, I really dig LMP's playlist, but the tourist really outdid himself this time. I'm leaning his way.

God damn, everyone did so well with their liszts this time round. I really think the lists are at a higher quality than they were last time...but that was the only other one I've participated in so I can't compare to the first few DI comps. Anyway, ballin shit all around. These two are great. I'm going with LMP.

I liked Tourist's second part quite a bit, but his list can't deflect awesomeness of this magnitude. YLB gets it.

The real question is: who put "Layla" to better use?

Well, using it as a closer is obviously the better move. It fits really well with that outro.

It goes well into the next song on Tourist's list, I think. El-Mel used it to great success in one of his lists a while back, too. I think it was the Symphonic thing, which is probably my favorite iteration of this contest.

The outro's probably one of my favorite pieces of music of all-time. Ended up using it over my class' senior song for our "senior video" to some success.

Thanks, but did you toss in a vote in the actual poll?
