I like indie type rock. He likes U2 and Bon Jovi. Help me make a mix cd he won't hate!

I'm trying to make a mix cd composed of indie type music that isn't too...subversive? Out there? For a guy used to mainstream type rock like U2, Goo Goo Dolls, Blue Rodeo, The Fray, etc. I have made him mix cds in the past which have been mostly what I'm listening to but thought he would like. Wrong every time. Help me impress him this time. I'm looking basically for songs he's never heard of before but would be accessible to someone with his tastes. Sorry if this is vague!
For example this time I'm including:
Ryan Adams - To Be Young
Pete Yorn - Closet
Spoon - I Summon You
But also some older stuff like
Billy Joel - Vienna
Otis Redding - Try a Little Tenderness
which I know he also appreciates.
If any clarification is needed, will be watching this thread. Thanks!
