Valentine's Day Mix Question

I was thinking of making a mix for a girl for Valentine's Day, a "holiday" I'm normally against, but she's cool enough to make it worthwhile. She's a big U2 fan, likes Radiohead, Keane, and good Coldplay but apart from that, I'm not sure what else. What do you guys think of this tentative list and would you do the same thing for a special someone on Valentine's Day?

1. You Get What You Give by The New Radicals
2. Heroes by David Bowie
3. Here Comes Your Man by Pixies
4. We Will Become Silhouettes by The Shins
5. Mushaboom by Feist
6. This Time Tomorrow by The Kinks
7. High and Dry by Radiohead
8. The Man in Me by Bob Dylan
9. 4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy) by Bruce Springsteen
10. One (Pavarotti and Friends Version) by Bono, Brian Eno, The Edge, Michael Kamen, a big-ass orchestra
11. Strawberry Fields Forever by The Beatles
12. She's a Rainbow by The Rolling Stones
13. To the End by Blur
14. Savannah Smiles by Okkervil River
15. Fade Together by Franz Ferdinand
16. Perfect Day by Lou Reed
17. The Way I Feel Inside by The Zombies
18. Do You Realize?? by The Flaming Lips
19. With or Without You by Keane
20. No Cars Go by Arcade Fire

definitely a good idea, I think. mix CD's are the best present anyway, my friends and I make them all the time for each other. and I'd fucking die of happiness if a guy I liked made me one.

especially if she's actually into your music.
it's a more thoughtful gift and she can listen to it and feel all special and all.

do some people think it's lame or tacky or something?

anyway it looks good.
the Cat Power version of Sea of Love is really good...it's kind of popular now bc it was on the Juno soundtrack. it's a good song but I dunno maybe it's a little much for your purposes. sleeping together? haha

You put thought into it, and effort.

But seriuslee, it's a good mix and a good idea too. A good mixtape can be an instant pantie dropper. Or just a sweet thing to do. Or both.

I think she'll dig it.

Very good mix, I think. No good Valentine's mix can be without something by Pulp , and don't be afraid to throw some soul on there for a more eclectic feel.

Thanks, guys.

I had a 6 hour rough mix that was whittled down, so I lost some funk/r&b along the way. If it were a 2-CD set, I'd definitely include more.

I think you accidentally cut "Lets make love" by that country guy and his blonde wife.

Mix tapes are always a good idea.

There are some great choices on there The only song I question at all is One. If you're up for suggestions, I suggest any of the following in its place: In A Little While, Slow Dancing, Stay (which would be twice as good considering it would come after High and Dry), Can't Help Falling In Love, or Sweetest Thing.

Regardless, it's a very good mix. I wish somebody would make me a mix for Valentine's Day

Yes, pick Stay.
