Retro Island Album Game: Round 3, Match 1

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the first match of the third 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.

For the last two matches of Round 2, LemonMacPhisto remained undefeated by winning 6-1 over bono_212, while KhanadaRhodes kept pace by emerging victorious over VintagePunk, 5-2. VP picked up a point by finishing within three votes, however.

Here are our standings after Round 2:

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!

Well, this is the last round. We'll have the semifinals on Wednesday which should produce some interesting matchups, so hopefully the voting will go up again for that.

Personally I've been having trouble voting because I like all the mixes so much I can't decide which one I like best. In this case I'm voting for Hardy. Screwtape's mix has a lot of songs I love on it too, but I could go for the rest of my life very happily without ever hearing "Turning Japanese" again and Duran Duran has tons of songs way better than "Skin Trade."
