Desert Island VI Album Game: Round 5, Match 8

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the final match of the final 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 4 saw LMP squeak out a victory over The Sad Punk, 8-7.

onebloodonelife goes up against phanan in our final match. Below are their playlists.

A Journey, Not a Destination

I had a loose narrative in my mind as I was making this list: basically, a person is moving through life, and we're looking in as this person falls in and out of love. Then, after a period of discouragement, finds him/herself ready and willing to love again. Listen with that in mind, if you choose. Mostly though, it's simply a collection of songs that I adore. Enjoy!

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)
Ocoai – “Babble” – Breatherman (11:46)
From Monument To Masses – “Beyond God & Elvis” – On Little Known Frequencies (4:45)
Doves – “The Cedar Room” – Lost Souls (7:39)
Passengers – “Always Forever Now” – Original Soundtracks 1 (6:24)

Enjoyed the hell out of both lists, and they're both extremely well put together. Found myself enjoying oneblood's more, but phanan's is stellar in other ways, too. I'll have to see how this pans out.
