Desert Island VI Album Game: Round 1, Match 5

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the fifth 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.

Match 3 saw gump double up on hardyharhar, 12-6.

Our fifth match finds AtomicBono going up against coolian2. Below are their playlists.

A note on this one.

Ian is without internet access at the moment, and has requested this his vote be manually added to his totals.

For the benefit of our newcomers, if you are going to be away at some point during the competition, but still want your votes counted, PM them to me BEFORE those matches begin, and I will accept them. Any request received after a match has been completed will not be accepted.

There are tons of songs on Ian's list that are killer, but overall AB's was a bit stronger.

AB's is more up my sleeve, although there were a bunch on Ian's that I really like.

'Tis a tough one, but I have to go with AB. Great job, I like this list way more than your last one (no offense to your last one).

Ian, your shit was reel good too. For me, even though I'm not a big fan of the song, I think the list really picked up once it hit Unknown Caller. Awesomeness from there on out. I swear I've heard that Crowded House song before but I can't for the life of me figure out where I heard it.

thanks gaf, i thought i plodded along a bit much before unknown caller, which i aimed to be some form of turning point in the list. i'm kinda glad it wasn't just me who thought it really picked up after unknown caller.

thanks GAF; I agree with you...I think this list is a vast improvement over my last one, which in retrospect was a bit disjointed and all over the place.
