Desert Island VI Album Game: Round 4, Match 5

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the fifth match of the fourth 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.

Round 5's first match saw GirlsAloudFan take out Salome in convincing fashion, winning 16-1. While the seeding is still up for grabs in Group 1, GAF has qualified for the quarterfinals.

The fifth match features AtomicBono and Mr. V. Below are their playlists.

COLOURS

This is probably as close to an autobiographical playlist as I'll get. This just sounds like my life at the moment. While there is a common theme or two, there's no story you need to follow or anything. The songs were chosen because of either their lyrical relevance, personal meaning, or contribution to the overall tone of the playlist.

There is a lot of different music here, with genres like pop, rock, shoegaze, indie, alternative, electronica, Britpop, piano rock, post-punk, experimental, neo-psychedelia and synthpop. With this in mind I have tried to make the transitions between these as seamless as possible - and indeed, in some instances, two songs almost become one, which is very pleasing.

I have no idea what the cover art is, but I did it one night when I was in an altered state and it just fitted with the music perfectly, so I'm sticking with it.

What I can say is that I love all the music on here. I thoroughly enjoyed putting this playlist together, and I hope you get something out of it, or at the very least, enjoy listening to it.

1. Sonic Youth - "Teen Age Riot" - Daydream Nation (6:59)
2. Interpol - "Obstacle 1" - Turn On The Bright Lights (4:11)
3. Franz Ferdinand - "Outsiders" - You Could Have It So Much Better (4:03)
4. Crowded House - "Pineapple Head" - Recurring Dream (The Very Best of Crowded House) (3:28)
5. Elbow - "Mirrorball" - The Seldom Seen Kid (5:50)
6. Ben Folds - "Adelaide" - Supersunnyspeedgraphic, the LP (3:13)
7. U2 - "Spanish Eyes" - The Joshua Tree (Bonus CD) (3:16)
8. Bruce Springsteen - "She's The One" - Born to Run (4:31)
9. The Black Keys - "Psychotic Girl" - Attack & Release (4:11)
10. The Smashing Pumpkins - "1979" - Rotten Apples: Greatest Hits (4:24)
11. R.E.M. - "Daysleeper" - In Time - The Best of R.E.M. (1988-2003) (3:41)

I really like your list AB, but you've run into a buzzsaw here with Mr. V.

There's a really high standard of lists in this game. I'm voting V, but it's a pretty narrow draw. There's a lot to like about AB's.
