Desert Island VI Album Game: Semifinal, Match 1

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the first Semifinal match 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.

In the first two quarterfinals, the tourist beat LMP, 9-6; and Mr. V thumped phanan, 9-4. They will both now face off in the first semifinal. 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)
12. Oasis - "Cast No Shadow" - (What's The Story) Morning Glory (4:52)
13. Echo & the Bunnymen - "My Kingdom" - Ocean Rain (4:05)

Neither of them are people I converse with on a regular basis, so I'm forced to vote on the merits of the music. Go Mistah V.

tourist has my second favorite playlist this time around.

Unfortunately for him, he's going up against the only one that I rate ahead of his. I wish these two had met in the final instead. They are both deserving to be standing at the end.
