Desert Island VI Album Game: Round 2, Match 2

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the second match of the second 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.

Match 2 finds Irishteen going up against the tourist. Below are their playlists.

To Mykonos

This playlist doesn't really have much of a theme, at least not a linear one in any sense. It's more a series of songs to do with the idea of trying to escape from somewhere and realising that nowhere is perfect not even where you dream of going. The playlist is divided into three acts but you can listen to it as a whole if you wish; the parts just represent the different moods of the playlist. I made the playlist with a crossfade on of about 4-6 seconds so that's how I imagined the flow sounding, so that's probably the optimal way to listen to it.

ACT ONE - Down in Jungleland
1 Nobuo Uematsu - "The Extreme" - Final Fantasy VIII: Original Soundtrack (06:45)
2 Explosions In The Sky - "The Birth and Death of the Day" - All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone (07:50)

7 Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - "Bring It On" - Nocturama (05:23)
8 Gary Moore - "End Of The World" - Corridors of Power (06:54)
9 The Verve - "The Sun, The Sea" - A Storm In Heaven (05:16)
10 Bruce Springsteen - "Jungleland" - Born To Run (09:31)

ACT TWO - Visions of a Gentle Coast
11 The Boomtown Rats - "Joey's On The Street Again" - The Boomtown Rats (05:31)
12 Rodrigo Y Gabriela - "Diablo Rojo" - Rodrigo Y Gabriela (04:57)
13 David Bowie - "Time Will Crawl (MM Remix)" - Bowie:iSelect (04:22)
14 Blur - "Trouble In The Message Centre" - Parklife (04:10)
15 Fleet Foxes - "Mykonos" - Sun Giant (04:35)
16 R.E.M. - "Welcome To The Occupation" - And I Feel Fine.....The Best Of The IRS Years 82-87 Collector's Edition (02:47)
17 Secret Machines - "First Wave Intact" - Now Here Is Nowhere (09:00)
18 The Arcade Fire - "Intervention" - Neon Bible (04:19)
19 Joy Division - "Atmosphere" - Substance (04:11)
20 The Cure - "A Strange Day" - Pornography (05:04)

ACT THREE - What If?
21 Battles - "Atlas" - Mirrored (07:07)
22 Passengers - "One Minute Warning" - Original Soundtracks 1 (04:40)
23 M.I.A. - "Jimmy" - Kala (03:29)

I liked both lists pretty well, but I think the tourist did a better job of creating different moods, and a lot of the list was pretty different for him
