Retro Island Album Game: Round 2, Match 2

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the second 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.

Our second match of Round 2 has namkcuR going up against Screwtape2. 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.

I don't have a deep enough knowledge of these genres to put together a list of obscure tracks that nobody's heard of, so I've simply tried to cram as much well-known awesomeness into eighty minutes as I could. In short, it is highly doubtful that there's anything on my list that you haven't heard before, and I wouldn't be surprised if I have the most mainstream list in this contest. But it is, imo, the cream of the crop of the songs you've heard a million times. It starts off with a blast of punk before settling into new wave territory for the rest of the way.

Tough call here, but I think overall namkcuR's list is slightly better.

I like Screwtape's set more than he does himself, but I like namkcuR's also, and a bit more than Screwy's.
