Retro Island Album Game: FINAL

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the FINAL match of the Interference Retro Island Album Game! In this competition, instead of being stranded on a desert island and seeking the best playlist to enjoy while there, we're heading off to Retro Island to savour the best that the punk/new wave genre of the late 70's and 80's has to offer.

In the semifinals, hardyharhar defeated KhanadaRhodes by the score of 6-2, and phanan won 5-2 over LemonMacPhisto.

So our FINAL is set, and it's a rematch between the top two from Group 1, hardyharhar and phanan, who previously tied in their last matchup. Below are their playlists.

If you don't know the songs, or wish to hear how each playlist flows, feel free to check out the Desert Island website.

Things had gotten a bit bloated in rock by the late 70’s and a shake-up was needed. The amount of great music which emerged from the punk movement is quite staggering. I tried to keep the list upbeat and mix it up with the different styles that made up this rich tapestry of sounds. Amongst it all here, you’re forced to suffer through the prophetic political rantings of Jello Biafra & the DK’s in an updated Reagan era California Uber Alles. The slightly heavier leanings continue with Midnight Oil & The Clash. Then it’s pretty much fun & games the rest of the way, iIncluding, a shameless stab at votes with one of my favorite U2 songs, a solo jaunt from Ultravox founder John Foxx, the original version of Pretty In Pink given the full Furs treatment as opposed to the re-recorded version for the movie soundtrack, and a Sparks song originally found only in the early Nicholas Cage comedy, Valley Girl. Overall, just a drop in a 10 year span of rejuvenated rock ‘n roll. So why vote for my list? Well, with tongue firmly in cheek, I am the oldest entrant, which means I have less time to win one of these and it shows respect for your elders. A fine trait. And it shows you can support one with an embarrassingly low purity test score. Also, a vote for me will most likely help slow global warming. A noble endeavor. Enjoy!

I still like my setlist. Usually I'm sick of them by now

I like Phanan's set too though, but I think VintagePunk had my second favorite by a bit.

It was fun Phanan. Thanks for running it, it brought me a little closer to the
21st century by getting me to use the itunes system.

I think we were the only two that liked it. But thanks.

I'm not tired of mine, either, and that's very unusual for me.


Annnd, my vote goes to hardy, because it's more suited to my tastes, and represents what stands out about the era and genre to me, although I want to give props to phanan too, because his list rocked, as well.

Nah. I had a feeling I was gonna lose anyway. Which is cool because I thought hardy had the best playlist, too.

Great job.

Phanan, I don't know how this is gonna end and it really doesn't matter. But I gotta give you an assist on my list, cuz when my more cynical tendencies were trying to bud in, I mentioned it at some point and you said something like "nah, keep it fun". So I stepped back, got back into an upbeat state of mind and 80 minutes rolled out pretty easy.

There you have it, coach

I ultimately decided to vote for Phanan's list, but Hardy's is awesome as well. Tough choice!

I believe so, but that's not surprising. He wasn't even around for own Survivor threads!
