Desert Island VI Album Game: Round 1, Match 4

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the fourth match of the first round 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.

At the beginning of each round, I will include the updated standings. Remember, the top two from each group moves on to the quarterfinals.

If you haven't listened to all the playlists, and you don't think you'll have time to get through them, I would urge everyone to at least review how each playlist is structured and, if possible, to check out the sequencing and flow of the songs. I'd also take the time to listen to a song by an artist you are unfamiliar with, or any song by an artist you usually dislike, as sometimes you may hear something you never thought you would have from that artist.

Salome took the second match over LemonMelon by the score of 13-3.

For Match 4, KhanadaRhodes and LMP battle it out. Below are their playlists.

Despite her claims that her list is inaccessible, I obviously enjoy quite a bit of Khan's.

Unfortunately for her, she goes against LMP here, who has one of the best playlist in the tournament.

I vote for LMP here, a great playlist (except for the hip hop section which I didn't enjoy!). Plus, it has a song called Brazil. Sorry, Khan!

Going with LMP here too. He had more stuff that I'm into, and it even got me to enjoy a song from HTTT. Still working on getting into that album...anyway, great job.

Khan really had it rolling for me for the first hour or so, then she really did mean it when she said she was pulling out the worst list ever Not that I dislike disco, but 8 minutes of "Good Times by Chic and another 8 from the Jacksons "Shake your body, down to the ground" amongst a few others brought the skids to the proceedings. Even Mofo and The Message couldn't rescue it since they were wrapped in Ice Ice Baby, Huey Lewis and the Human League singing you've lost that loving feeling. But it was quite a hoot though, battling through it

LMP is all over the place usually, and this list was no different. Fortunately, he has pretty good taste (in this old guy's opinion), and though I'd like to see a bit deeper cuts from the old timers, I know that takes time to discover. Still, no complaints on the songs chosen, and working in Tom Waits and "If you wanna sing out" sure works for me.

Had a slightly tough time with all the hippity hoppity in the middle. But an overall good job LMP. No doubt, good moods for moderns.

I'm voting for Khan. She needs my vote, I dug her first half, and the 'good times' that followed made us laugh
