Desert Island VI Album Game: Round 2, Match 8

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the eighth and final 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.

We have our first tie of the tournament, as hardyharhar and The Sad Punk finished deadlocked with 6 votes each. Both players will receive two points.

The last match of the second round has bono_212 going up against phanan. Below are their playlists.

Robert's Fucking Despair Knows No Geographic Boundaries...I Mean...He Is Upset. So Take A Little Pity On The Guy Why Don't You?

I really don't have much to say about this list. Listening to it makes me extremely happy, that's for sure. I tried not to let current events in my life taint it too much, but, well, that's just not entirely possible, as, I find with music, you listen to the music that fits the mood your in. So, maybe I am semi-attempting to give an explanation for why my list is a little "poppier" than average, but, really, I created something I enjoy, and I hope you all can get a bit of entertainment out of it as well.

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)
