Retro Island Album Game: Round 2, Match 1

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the first match of the second round 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.

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. Current standings will be displayed at the end of each round.

Here are our standings after Round 1:

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 voted for Phanan on this one mostly because, no offense to VP or Hardy, but I'm not so much into the Punk as much as the rest. Not to say your list isn't good Hardy, it is, just not my thing.

This is gonna be a close one, me thinks.

Can't argue with anyone who votes for hardy, though. I love his playlist, too.

Evidently, I'm going against the winner of a couple desert island's here. Is this true? The General Rommel of desert island, the desert fox himself?

Obviously I like Phanan's list. Many of the same groups & lotsa songs I like, only a few I don't care for. "Girls Talk" & "Local Girls" and probably more diverse in representing the years covered.
But I really like my list, I think it is one of the better ones I've ever done since the cassette days, and I'm sure it's due to the itunes system. It allowed me to easily manipulate and change the order of tracks, selections were added & dropped and ultimately I liked the way things flowed in the end.

Sure can't complain about how anyone votes here and I'm a pretty good loser And I gotta come clean here, voting for me isn't gonna do a damn thing about global warming. Just something I learned from Karl Rove

Ah, but something tells me you might be Patton to my Rommel for this.

You should be happy. Your list is my favorite overall.

I voted for my dad And no, I'm not being biased

I really do like both of their lists, but after hearing my dad's being played 24/7 at home, I've really come to like it

Talk about close. Look's like Patton brought the allied forces I know Maddie had been hearing my list, but don't know how she found this thread.
I know who I suspect though I guess all's fair in love & war

I was just reading how the scoring works and it could end up really close. Funny how we both forgot to vote for ourselves in the first round, but you voted for mine, while I voted for neither. Could be the difference?

Anyways, it was fun. I think it would be better if more people were voting. Maybe encourage people to vote, even if they haven't heard the lists. Cause I notice a lot of people view. I know that sorta defeats the purpose of how the order works, but I think the increased involvement would offset that, and make things more fun for group discussion.

I agree. Unfortunately, the whole forum's been so slow lately that I doubt we're going to get that many more people voting or discussing.
