Desert Island VI Album Game: Round 2, Match 7

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the seventh 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.

The winner of Match 3 was gump, who defeated KhanadaRhodes, 12-4.

Axver and Joey788 battle it out in our sixth match. Below are their playlists.

STUTTERS ACROSS THE HORIZON

Also known as Gettin' Transparent.

"It was not yet five o'clock in the morning, too early for even the December dawn to break. The pristine night sky cast a shimmering radiance while a few threads of light, vague harbingers of the oncoming day, stuttered across the horizon ..."

STUCK IN TWILIGHT

Since this is my first playlist and I came up with it in between writing papers for the end of the semester, I don’t really have a cover or well-thought out story to go with the playlist. I decided that I wanted two contrasting CDs more in terms of how they feel than anything else. So I separated them into a day CD and a night CD. The day CD seems to have more of an energetic feel that lasts until the last song, “Daddy’s Gone.” I see this song as being a good transition into the beginning of dusk. The night CD starts off with all the pleasure and temptation the night brings. The second half of the disc slows down to show the result of recklessly giving in to those desires. There are some well-known and some lesser-known bands in the playlist and hopefully there’s something for everyone. I hope you enjoy the songs I chose as well as how it flows.

DAY

1. Muse - "Take A Bow" – Black Holes and Revelations (4:36)
2. Ra Ra Riot - "Dying Is Fine" – The Rhumb Line (3:52)
3. Beck - "Gamma Ray" – Modern Guilt (2:57)
4. Andrew Bird - "Fake Palindromes" – Andrew Bird and The Mysterious Production of Eggs (2:53)
5. Metric - "Gimme Sympathy" - Fantasies (3:55)
6. Foo Fighters - "Best of You" – In Your Honor (4:16)
7. The Clash – “London Calling” – London Calling (3:20)
8. Derek and the Dominos – “Layla” – Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs (7:06)
9. Cream – “Sunshine Of Your Love” – Disraeli Gears (4:13)
10. The Flaming Lips – “Do You Realize?” – Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots (3:33)
11. Silversun Pickups – “Lazy Eye” – Carnavas (5:54)
12. Elbow – “The Bones Of You” – The Seldom Seen Kid (4:51)
13. The Who – “The Seeker” – The Ultimate Collection (3:13)
14. Kaiser Chiefs – “Never Miss A Beat” – Off With Their Heads (3:07)
15. The New Pornographers – “The Electric Version” – Electric Version (2:53)
16. The Duke Spirit – “The Step and The Walk” – Neptune (3:22)

I really like Joey's playlist, and I voted for it in the first round. But Axver gets it here.
