For this tournament, I chose to follow a different route than last time, partly due to the ban on repeating songs and partly due to my own desire not to be thematically repetitive and to look at my submission from a different angle. Accordingly, this compilation leans more towards melodic rock, with the metal element of the last submission almost entirely absent and the prog element viewed a new way, seeking to show the genre is not about soulless excess. The compilation is not designed to present a journey or work towards a specific point, but to provide a broad sampling of different moods and themes within a cohesive whole. It can accordingly be enjoyed in full or dealt with in thematic portions appropriate to the listener's mood. There are moments of hope, of politics, of tenderness, of cynicism, of joy, of regret, and a conclusion of sheer beauty in the form of Porcupine Tree's The Rest Will Flow. I feel that this is accordingly an ideal desert island compilation: the moods someone stranded on such an island would feel are diverse and can be addressed by various segments of the tracklisting, and the full effect provides masterfully crafted musical accompaniment to the experience both of the desert island and life in general.

To me the best music to an individual is the kind that has an emotional effect. With that in mind, my compilation attempts to take someone into the experience of life on a desert island. My compilation is a concept album in a sense, centered around the emotions experienced by those in their first night on the island. It is called “To The Stars, A Fire Cried No Hiding Place.” Interpret that how you want. When you listen imagine those people and what they might be doing or thinking during each piece. The first disc is called “A Restless Sea, Before A Sleep.” It is meant to represent the shedding of their past lives. The second disc is called “A Restless Dream, Before First Breath.” It is meant to represent the conflict of savage subconscious wills against the hope of a new life and second chance. It merges alternative, prog/art rock, classical/film scores, folk music, jazz and others. Please take a listen. It is something that has to be experienced to be appreciated. So close your eyes and put on your head phones.

I chose my playlist with a few things in mind. I wanted a broad
spectrum with lots of different genre artists, giving both the cruisy
mellow music I love with a few rock songs thrown in, as I like
changing playlists. I added a few of my favourite aussie artists that
are possibly not well known outside of Australia. They are amazing
artists, so check them out if you like what you hear. I love strings,
and instrumental music, so there are a few of them in there as well.
Basically it's a mix bag of my favourite artists. I hope you like it!

I tried to separate my playlist into three distinct phases, each beginning with an epic post rock track and ending with one of my favorite piano driven tunes. I always think the best playlists start out with the hypnotic drumbeat of The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows,” which I unfortunately used in the last competition. Fortunately, the Love record came out, and you get to “turn off your mind” to begin my playlist once again. I didn’t seek to make this a comprehensive list of the best songs ever or to span every conceivable genre. I simply wanted to make a list that reflects what I’m listening to these days and the point I’m at in my life. I hope you enjoy it and find something new and worthwhile.

My playlist was originally envisioned as a showcase for the beauty of music. It included the entirety of Beethoven's 5th Symphony spread out throughout the playlist. It opened with Beck's Sexx Laws, and followed with the first two movements. It was funny. The third movement divided the playlist in half, and the final movement closed the playlist, with R.E.M.'s "Find the River" as a sort of Coda at the very end. I thought it was beautiful, and probably a more cohesive playlist than what I'm currently offering. It worked well as a solid unit. But the problem was that I could only fit in like 25 other songs. I needed more. That and the fact that a lot of people probably wouldn't appreciate 50 minutes of classical music, and that would probably hurt my chances in the competition. So I scratched the idea, and started anew. This time I just tried to fit in as many songs I could from my favorite artists. The songs I selected aren't necessarily my favorite song from each individual artist, but I feel they represent everything I love about each artist as a whole (also keeping in mind the time constraints, which limited my choices a bit). Then I did my best to make a listenable 160 minute playlist out of all this junk. Not a whole lot changed as far order goes once I had my artists in line. Specific songs continued to switch in and out during the whole process though. And a few quick deadline decisions were made just hours before I finalized the playlist (including swapping R.E.M's "I Believe" for "Electrolite", Bob Dylan's "Simple Twist of Fate" for "Shelter From the Storm", Pink Floyd's "Sheep" for "Time", and the very late addition of a Wilco track). Overall, I think this current incarnation is the best my playlist has ever sounded, though I could probably continue to tweak it forever. Why is my playlist the best? Well, I tried to keep it accessible, with some of the most beautiful song's I've ever known. I let a few odd balls in, like the Sugarcubes and Brian Eno tracks, but they're good for depth. And I couldn't possibly think of a better way to end such an epic musical journey than with The Boss's most beautiful song, "New York City Serenade". So sit back, relax, enjoy the rockers when they come, and enjoy my music.

Well here is my slightly manic playlist, the aim was to include as broad a spectrum of music that is representative of moi. The flow of the music is always important to me when making a playlist and that was one of my aims when creating these desert island discs. Sections I think that work particularly well include from "We're Here" to "Little Wing" and from "Do the Whirlwind" to "Boys From School" on the first disc. The run on the second disc from "Mis-Shapes" down to "Ladyflash" I am also particularly proud of, especially considering that I managed to get "Sheep" by Pink Floyd in between some disco, hip-hop goodness. Hopefully everyone will find at least a section of my my playlists enjoyable...it may also be a love hate relationship, as I am sure as well as there being sections you love, there will be the odd one you hate. Please though, definitely check out "Emerald" by Thin Lizzy and "We Do Not Fuck Around" by Viva Voce as they are two very kick ass songs....oh vote for me and enjoy the rest

This tracklist centers around the idea that, if I was trapped on a desert island, I would want to remember all the people I love and can no longer be with, and many of the good times that I've had. So the songs in my tracklist ARE NOT MY FAVORITE SONGS and are NOT necessarily BY MY FAVORITE ARTISTS (I would never include a Queensryche song on a tracklist of my favorite songs of all time, but the song on here reminds me of my very first crush who made me go all weak and wobbly, hence, it's very special to me). Each song reminds me of either a person I love or a great time I've had, thus, these songs are the memories of my life, from growing up listening to my Mom and Dad's favorites (Allman Bros., Led Zeppelin, Genesis); to The Cure's "Plainsong" - the first song that ever made me cry; to my college days (7 housemates and I on a weekend trip to San Francisco to see Oasis, getting drunk in Chinatown and stuffing ourselves into a cab and singing "Champagne Supernova" at the top of our lungs the entire way to the concert; to coming out of the closet and cutting my baby-gay teeth at club OZZ; to my friends introducing me to the beauty that is Brit-Pop. These are the songs/loved ones/memories I would take with me if I were to be stranded on a desert island.

In my playlist I tried to reach to the furthest extents of interference. I wanted to make a playlist that would be generally consisted of well know artists and songs, but sometimes I chose a song that’s not necessarily the artists best or most famous but still well known, this way most people would recognize it but they may not be tired of it be fore they heard it. I kind of got into the theme of Desert Island taking it as not only you’re on and island and that’s the music you had with you, but I tried to convey what you would want to hear based on your feelings if say, your plane crashed on an island. It starts off pretty hard with AC/DC, then it moves on into more 80’s and classic rock that you can work to. Then it goes into some music for desert island ambiance like The Beach Boys and Jimmy Buffett. Then it picks up a little bit with the alternative and a little punk stuff, form there it slows down into more chilled songs Piano Man, Tiny Dancer, and gradually builds to the violins of Eleanor Rigby and finally leaves us off with the band that brought us all to interference, with at beautiful live rendition of Bad. So I hope you all enjoy my playlist.

From about the age of 8 I started to play the clarinet and Piano and got pretty good at both until I discovering 'other things'. The exams involved playing and listening to classical music and it's from here that I developed a respect for live performing when done well.

I hate manufactured crap (particularly from the 80s/90s) - the stuff that can't be reproduced live without it sounding karaoke. People who can play instruments get my respect. Others like Spice Girls, Westlife and Take That just annoy me. So you can tell why my love for U2 developed.

The tracklisting can be split into three groups - Classical, Bands, Non-Bands. There's quite a chunk of Non-Band tracks in here - for songs that wouldn't normally pass my 'respect test but do pass my 'whistle test' (Eg Modjo, Natalie Imbruglia, Pink), or represent events in my life.

I'm not sure if I'm already on "the list" or not, considering the fact that I sent my playlist by email, but just in case.

Ummm, my "explanation" paragraph didn't make it up there? Did LMP get it? I can re-send it if need be.

Oh, crap, I didn't even realise you couldn't make polls, LMP. What shall we do? I could potentially be the poll-maker if there's no other option, but my schedule could be quite crowded this month. That said, I'm less rushed now than I was in January, so it could be feasible. I was hoping I wouldn't have to do it this time around though.

I have an idea about that but first can you setup the first poll at the top of the hour? I'll write up the post and you can paste it to the poll.

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the first matchup of the Interference Desert Island Album Game Part Duex! The premise of this game is that the Interference forum has been stranded on a desert island and we can take only TWO CDs of up to 80 minutes of music each or one playlist of 160 minutes. The object is to see which member of the forum can fit the most musical goodness onto these two CDs.

In this round, tracklistings made by Gibsongirl and Axver face off against each other. Below, you will find their tracklistings. If you are unfamiliar with the songs included, we can help you hear them! Just leave your e-mail address.

For this tournament, I chose to follow a different route than last time, partly due to the ban on repeating songs and partly due to my own desire not to be thematically repetitive and to look at my submission from a different angle. Accordingly, this compilation leans more towards melodic rock, with the metal element of the last submission almost entirely absent and the prog element viewed a new way, seeking to show the genre is not about soulless excess. The compilation is not designed to present a journey or work towards a specific point, but to provide a broad sampling of different moods and themes within a cohesive whole. It can accordingly be enjoyed in full or dealt with in thematic portions appropriate to the listener's mood. There are moments of hope, of politics, of tenderness, of cynicism, of joy, of regret, and a conclusion of sheer beauty in the form of Porcupine Tree's The Rest Will Flow. I feel that this is accordingly an ideal desert island compilation: the moods someone stranded on such an island would feel are diverse and can be addressed by various segments of the tracklisting, and the full effect provides masterfully crafted musical accompaniment to the experience both of the desert island and life in general.


(It may sound familiar )

This is my idea about the polls: we make the thread an hour or two before when we'd start. Then one of the gracious mods would turn it into a poll for us.

OR

We leave what would be in the post in the master list thread where someone with premium membership creates a poll using that post.

I have premium membership. But I've never made a poll before.

I'll help if I can.

Nah, I can do it. I just wanted to sit back and watch this time. But I'd totally failed to note that I'm the only premium member out of the three of us running this thing, heh.

If you want, I'll take Screwtape's suggested post and make the first round in 27 minutes (the hour mark). It'll run for 2 days, right?

That would be great. Yeah, it'll be two days.

This first matchup will probably be the toughest choice for me. Good luck to both of you.

ST2-- I did not get the links for the playlists.

If you could kindly send them along to my e-mail: joshuatreebaby@yahoo.com, I would very much appreciate it.

Thank you!
