Retro Island Album Game: Round 2, Match 3

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the third 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.

We had our first tie of the tournament, as hardyharhar and phanan dueled to a 5-5 draw in Match 1. Each player picks up 2 points.

Match 2 saw namkcuR easily defeat Screwtape2 by the score of 9-1. Current standings will be displayed at the end of each round.

For our third match, bono_212 squares off against LemonMacPhisto. 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.

Ok so the title of the play list is a joke between a friend and I, but it is no secret that I have a sick obsession with synthesizers, and the music created with such a “fantastic!” instrument. Anyways, I tried to make my list not TOO much of a greatest hits compilations, but with the little access I have to the music I love so very much, I had to make due with what I had. It was hard to cut this list down to under 80 minutes, and even now, with an extra 2.5 minutes left, I feel like I should throw something else in, but I think it’s safer leaving it like this. This is the most excited I think I’ve been about desert island since the very beginning, so I hope my list is the best I could have done, that it flows * well, and it’s enjoyable for all those listening .

No votes yet? Hopefully we'll get the usual number even though it's a Friday.

The rounds will then resume on Monday.

I give LMP the edge here.
