Retro Island Album Game: Semifinal, Match 1

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the first semifinal match 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.

In the remaining matches, VintagePunk earned her first victory of the tournament by defeating bono_212 6-4 (although bono_212 still picked up a point), and LemonMacPhisto completed his undefeated run by winning his match over KhanadaRhodes by the score of 7-2.

And with that, here are the final standings:

Group 1

*hardyharhar: 8, 2, 0, 1, 24, 7, +17
*phanan: 8, 2, 0, 1, 19, 7, +12
namkcuR: 3, 1, 2, 0, 11, 17, -6
Screwtape2: 0, 0, 3, 0, 3, 26, -23

Group 2

*LemonMacPhisto: 9, 3, 0, 0, 20, 6, +14
*KhanadaRhodes: 6, 2, 1, 0, 14, 14, 0
VintagePunk: 4, 1, 2, 0, 11, 16, -5
bono_212: 1, 0, 3, 0, 10, 19, -9

*qualified for semifinals

Our first semifinal features the #1 seed from Group 1 against the #2 seed from Group 2, which is hardyharhar and KhanadaRhodes. 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.

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!

Honestly, part of me just wants to make either the least popular playlist ever that has exactly zero lyrics just soundscapes or the most taking the piss out of the forum playlist ever.

I know you've changed your mind about the Fake List, but don't get any ideas.

Oh, no. Mine would be more of a satire of the forum than the game itself.
