Last year, for Valentine's Day (because I was living in Japan while she was still in Chicago), I made my girl a three-disc, vaguely conceptual (ie, I picked songs for the way they sounded rather than their lyrics, which--surprise!--makes the discs a lot more easy to listen to), Magnetic Fields-esque masterpiece. The first disc of often brittle, acoustic-tinged songs, the second of soaring anthems, and the third, of course, slo-jamz. Well, maybe not quite all, or even largely, slo-jamz. Either way, it was a good way to end things--with a laugh, with a wink, and with a smile.

1) Jeff Buckley, "Hallelujah"
2) U2/Willie Nelson, "Slow Dancing"
3) Antony and The Johnsons, "Hope There's Someone"
4) The Magnetic Fields, "Come Back From San Francisco"
5) The Mountain Goats, "Wild Sage"
6) Liz Phair, "California"
7) The Futureheads, "Danger of the Water"
8) Bright Eyes, "Landlocked Blues" (Motion Sickness)
9) Radiohead, "Fake Plastic Trees" (acoustic, live)
10) Yo La Tengo, "Don't Have To Be So Sad"
11) The Boss, "You're Missing"
12) Nick Drake, "Place To Be"
13) Dylan, "Buckets of Rain"
14) Cohen, "So Long, Marianne"
15) The White Stripes, "I'm Lonely (But I Ain't That Lonely Yet)"
16) Keith Fullerton Whitman, "Stereo Music For Acoustic Guitar, Bucla Music Box 100, Hp Model 236 Oscillator, Electric Guitar, And Computer - Part One"
17) Tom Waits, "Take it With Me"
18) Lucero, "She Wakes When She Dreams"


1) Bloc Party, "Like Eating Glass"
2) Wolf Parade, "I'll Believe in Anything"
3) Violent Femmes, "I Held Her in My Arms" (redone mix)
4) The New Pornographers, "From Blown Speakers"
5) The Cars, "Since You're Gone"
6) The Fiery Furnaces, "Sweet Spots"
7) Billy Idol, "Dancing With Myself" (LP version)
8) DM, "Just Can't Get Enough"
9) Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, "The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth"
10) The New Pornographers, "To Wild Homes"
11) The Boss, "Born to Run
12) Pulp, "Common People"
13) The New Pornographers, "The Bleeding Heart Show"
14) Wire, "Mercy"
15) Soul Asylum, "Can't Even Tell"
16) LCD Soundsystem, "All My Friends"
17) Karmella's Game, "Not the End"
18) The Crush, "Mission Viejo" (Lifter Puller)


1) Murphy Lee (ft. Nelly, P. Diddy), "Shake Your Tailfeather"
2) Outkast, "Where Are My Panties?"
3) Outkast, "She Lives in My Lap"
4) Marvin Gaye, "Sexual Healing"
5) The Roots and Cody Chesnutt, "The Seed (2.0)"
6) Prince, "Slow Love"
7) James, "Laid"
8) The Jimi Hendrix Experience, "Foxy Lady"
9) The Doors, "Back Door Man"
10) Nelly, "Hot in Herre"
11) Justin Timberlake, "SexyBack"
12) Nine Inch Nails, "Closer"
13) R. Kelly, "I Like the Crotch On You"
14) D'Angelo, "How Does it Feel?"
15) Beck, "Debra" (LP version)


You do something like that, this chick is at least gonna know that you mean bizness, mixed or otherwise.
I live in Chicago, what the fuck are you going to send me?

Oh, and I always thought, speaking of the old girl, that Cat Power's "Colors and the Kids" had a place on that first disc, but I could never quite get it to work out right. There's always this year's mix(es). I'm glad that this jogged my memory. Thanks, kids!

You can borrow my copy of As Tears Go By, whenever I get back to the States, if you're so inclined.

Shit son, that is epic.

If this were a more serious relationship and I knew for sure what her tastes were, I'd go for a bigger mix-set, but I'm content with the amount right now.

Good idea LMP.

But why use Keane's WOWY instead of the original?

I love the guy from Keane. He's kinda pudgey which makes him hilarious, and he sings every line like he's trying to be the most earnest being on the planet. He could be singing about Rebok Classics and belt it out like Bono at the end of One Tree Hill.

it seems nice, but you can't end a CD with THAT song... with NO CARS GO...

it's just too damn good and you want to hear what comes after..

I'd put NO CARS GO before Keane's WOWY

Add some Coldplay. Something like "Green Eyes." Such a beautiful song.

I might take out the Franz or Okerrvil River track and put in Coldplay's "I Bloom Baum" and some Al Green in there somewhere.

"Let's Stay Together" perhaps.
