I want to put together a killer mix CD for my musician boyfriend, one that he will appreciate and enjoy. But my lack of music knowledge is getting in my way of creating this awesome mix. I need some help!
He plays electric bass (among other instruments), so I'm looking for songs with an awesome bassline. I am all about the lyrics, though, and I need the songs to be sexy and romantic. I want to make a good makeout mix that he can enjoy even when we're not together.
Genre-wise, decade-wise, I am flexible. We both love all kinds of music. (We're both in our mid-30s if that means anything.) I am hoping for more obscure or deep cut tracks rather than anything obvious (obvious here meaning '90s-'00s indie/college radio standards, though I can make exceptions). Personally, I love '60s-'70s pop and funk. As for him, he's played in blues & flamenco groups as well as more standard rock, as far as I know, and has mentioned repeated love for New Order, Tears for Fears, and other '80s bands that I have only passing familiarity with. But overall he has an encyclopedic knowledge of music that spans time and space (and kicks some regular ass at trivia night).
I so want to impress him, guys, not necessarily with obscurity, but with quality and mood. I have just been flailing about on this project for months now. It is a daunting task. Please help!
