Retro Island Album Game: Round 3, Match 4

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the fourth and final 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.

KhanadaRhodes and LemonMacPhisto face off in this match. 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 ended up going with LMP. The songs on Khan's list I already knew weren't my favorites, and there were only a few of the new tracks that I ended up really wanting to listen to after wards.

LMP's list on the other hand only had one or two songs that I just really didn't like (Politics of Dancing, and Beat on the Brat)

But both of these were great lists

Both mixes are great, but I'm going to go with LMP's - it opens with one of my favorite Ramones tunes and ends with my favorite Echo and the Bunnymen tune which also happens to be one of my favorite songs of all time by anyone. It also has so much great stuff in between. I don't like "Rock Me Amadeus" but I guess I can always skip over that one.
