Desert Island VI Album Game: Semifinal, Match 2

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the second 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 last two quarterfinals, gump edged GirlsAloudFan, 7-6; and bono_212 handled phillyfan26, 11-7. They will both now face off in the second semifinal. Below are their playlists.


Forum name: gump



Uncertain Paths

I guess every playlist is a reflection of one’s own self, so I won’t deny this one has a bit (or a lot) of myself in it. I won’t dwelve into details, as I would like to leave this open for interpretation, but the main topic here is transition into adulthood, the uncertain paths we have to choose, the dilemmas and doubts it generates. It is not all gloomy, but rather a contrast of emotions, from joy to desperation to hope for a happy ending. Concept or no concept, the playlist also has some of my favorite songs, which I hope you will enjoy. Thanks for listening!

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.

1. The Cure - "The Top" - The Top (6:58)
2. Peter Gabriel - "Games Without Frontiers" - Hit [Disc 1] (3:58)
3. Pet Shop Boys - "Suburbia" - Discography-Complete Singles Collection (4:04)
4. David Bowie - "Ashes To Ashes" - Scary Monsters (4:25)
5. U2 - "Love Comes Tumbling" - Wide Awake In America (4:45)
6. Tears For Fears - "Start Of The Breakdown" - The Hurting (5:01)
7. BellX1 - "The Great Defector" - The Great Defector (4:41)
8. The Killers - "On Top" - Hot Fuss (4:19)
9. Snow Patrol - "Set The Fire To The Third Bar" - Eyes Open (3:24)
10. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - "Hysteric" - It's Blitz!
11. Simon and Garfunkel - "America" - Bookends (3:36)
12. Joni Mitchell - "Both Sides Now" - Both Sides Now (5:45)
13. Okkervil River - "So Come Back, I Am Waiting" - Black Sheep Boy (8:03)
14. Bon Iver - "Skinny Love" - For Emma, Forever Ago (3:56)
15. Elton John - "Tiny Dancer" - The Greatest Hits 1970-2002 (6:17)
16. Bruce Springsteen - "I'm On Fire" - Born In The U.S.A. (2:34)

18. Pixies - "Debaser" - Doolittle (2:53)

gump, if only for the last portion of tracks from the first part of the list.

"You Are the Blood" was epic.

Both lists are epic but I'm giving a slight edge to Gump, even though Ashley has the most comical title I've ever seen.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that Lance's Mom is an alter and therefore does not count in the vote totals. Alters are strictly forbidden from voting.

My vote was going to be for gump, so it will just take the place of Lance's Mom so that the numbers are accurate.

I don't know. I like Gump's list more on paper than I actually do listening to it. There are a lot of artists I love on there, but I didn't care for a lot of the song choices. Sequencing was fine, but it was on Ashley's too, and I found hers a more fun listening experience. This is pretty much a draw for me. Whatever, I'll throw in a vote for Ashley to make things interesting.

I can understand what LM is saying. For example, I love Radiohead, but I'm not a "Packt" fan.
