Desert Island VI Album Game: Quarterfinal, Match 2

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the second Quarterfinal 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.

Quarterfinal 2 is Mr. V and phanan in our final match. Below are their playlists.

Forum name: Mr. V


This is probably as close to an autobiographical playlist as I'll get. This just sounds like my life at the moment. While there is a common theme or two, there's no story you need to follow or anything. The songs were chosen because of either their lyrical relevance, personal meaning, or contribution to the overall tone of the playlist.

There is a lot of different music here, with genres like pop, rock, shoegaze, indie, alternative, electronica, Britpop, piano rock, post-punk, experimental, neo-psychedelia and synthpop. With this in mind I have tried to make the transitions between these as seamless as possible - and indeed, in some instances, two songs almost become one, which is very pleasing.

I have no idea what the cover art is, but I did it one night when I was in an altered state and it just fitted with the music perfectly, so I'm sticking with it.

What I can say is that I love all the music on here. I thoroughly enjoyed putting this playlist together, and I hope you get something out of it, or at the very least, enjoy listening to it.

The title says it all. I wasn’t going for any theme or concept, I didn’t care if there wasn’t enough variety, and I didn’t mind that most of the songs on this were new. It was simply a playlist of things that I’d put together recently of tracks that I was really enjoying at the moment, and instead of creating a playlist specifically for Desert Island, I just took what I already had and went with it.

The American Dollar – “Rudiments Of A Spiritual Life” – The Technicolor Sleeps (5:04)
Fever Ray – “When I Grow Up” – Fever Ray (4:31)
Pure Reason Revolution – “Bloodless” – Amor Vincit Omnia (4:55)
Kyte – “The Lost Blood” – Science For The Living (4:53)
Neon Neon – “Steel Your Girl” – Stainless Style (3:34)
Friendly Fires – “White Diamonds” – Friendly Fires (4:13)
Phoenix – “1901” – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (3:15)
Metric – “Twilight Galaxy” – Fantasies (4:54)
M83 – “Graveyard Girl (Radio Edit)” – Graveyard Girl Promo (4:24)
Cut Copy – “Far Away” – Far Away EP (5:03)
Roxette – “Fading Like A Flower” – Joyride (3:54)
Stars – “Personal” – In Our Bedroom After The War (4:07)
Moby – “Everloving” – Play (3:26)
Mono – “Follow The Map” – Hymn To The Immortal Wind (3:56)
Sigur Rós – “Hljómalind” – Hvarf/Heim (4:56)
Maybeshewill – “He Films The Clouds, Pt. 2” – Not For Want Of Trying (6:43)
Radiohead – “House Of Cards” – In Rainbows (5:28)
Sleepmakeswaves – “One Day You Will Teach Me To Let Go Of My Fears” – In Today Already Walks Tomorrow (6:21)
U2 – “Moment Of Surrender” – No Line On The Horizon (7:24)
TV On The Radio – “Family Tree” – Dear Science (5:34)
God Is An Astronaut – “New Years End” – Far From Refuge (4:16)
Opeth – “Patterns In The Ivy” – Blackwater Park (1:52)
Ocoai – “Babble” – Breatherman (11:46)
From Monument To Masses – “Beyond God & Elvis” – On Little Known Frequencies (4:45)
Doves – “The Cedar Room” – Lost Souls (7:39)
Passengers – “Always Forever Now” – Original Soundtracks 1 (6:24)
Laura – “It’s Kind Of Like The Innocent Smiles You Get At The Start Of A Relationship Before You Fuck Everything Up” – Radio Swan Is Down (5:10)
Porcupine Tree – “Dark Matter” – Signify (8:13)
If These Trees Could Talk – “The Flames Of Herostratus” – Above The Earth, Below The Sky (5:34)
Jesu – “End Of The Road” – Lifeline EP (5:31)

I'm hoping it's tight. Blowouts are no fun, especially when the lists are pretty close in quality.

Had to go with Mr. V. Two good lists, but Mr. V's is just stellar.

Mr. V for me as well, despite my inability to understand why everyone is so high on Glasvegas.

Phanan's list is the best in the game.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I'm honestly flattered with how much you guys seem to love my list, and a little proud. I listened to it today and it still sounds like my life. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I'm continuing to do so.

That's taking nothing away from phanan, the old hand. Your list is fucking tops as well, you've got some songs that I almost had in my list but I couldn't fit them in right, like Family Tree and When I Grow Up. Mwahs to you.
