100 Rock Songs you should have on a Compilation CD for your Girlfriend

Your girlfriend digs rock music and her birthday is coming up. You don’t have to spend a fortune on a gift. Get it right with a gift that evokes special memories through lyrics and music. Making your girlfriend a compilation CD is a great way to take your love quotient to another level. Here’s a list of rock songs you must put down on a compilation CD for your girlfriend.

When you make a compilation CD for your girlfriend, you should take a lot into consideration. Of course if you have been in a relationship for a while you will be well versed with the bands and artists your girlfriend likes. It does make it simpler when you know your girlfriend’s taste in rock music. You need to be creative when you get down to making a compilation CD for your girlfriend. When you have a rock chick you need to impress, you’ve got to be selective with your choice of songs. You just cannot put down every rock song you find on the internet or on your friends hard disk drive.

There has to be thought in the compilation CD you make for your girlfriend.

Lyrical aspects appeal to rock chicks, and it makes perfect sense to include rock songs with a bent towards lyrical balladry. Girls who love rock music like to get reflective with lyrics of songs. You have to compile songs that make beautiful memories of the past come alive. Make sure you select songs that speak a language of the heart. If you dwell deep within the realms of what the mind dictates, you may end up with a compilation that hits the wrong notes.

Every rock chick loves rock ballads. Acoustic rock ballads and power ballads from the 80s and 90s do make a compilation CD of rock songs poetic in every sense. Slow rock songs are an excellent choice when you are making a compilation CD for a girl. The tempo and acoustic interludes in power ballads seem to strike the right connection with rock chicks. It’s wise to go with a variety of rock sub-genres on compilations rather than stick with a particular genre of rock songs. If you have no qualms about being daringly different with your choice of songs, go right ahead and compile a CD of songs by bands and artists you know she hasn’t given a listen.

Girls love it when guys compile songs by bands and artists they haven’t heard. When you compile songs of bands and artists she hasn’t given a listen, there is a sense of eagerness to go with. It’s the feeling of listening to something brand new that makes the compilation momentous. If your relationship has been in rough waters, it a wise move to throw in few sentimental ballads she loved listening to in happier times. Girls do get teary-eyed when lyrics of songs bring back past memories. A teary-eyed moment during a song can mend a broken relationship, and so the songs you put down in a compilation CD should be thoughtful.

Pick rock songs that bring out the various facets of love. Keep it simple and avoid complex song structure. However, if your girlfriend loves listening to complex passages in songs; it’s always a wise move to include few progressive rock songs in a compilation CD. Many individuals opt for a sequence while compiling songs. While a sequence in a compilation does bring in charm, it also tends to send the listener in drift-away mode becoming less impactful for the listener. Below is a list of songs you should consider having on a compilation CD for your girlfriend.
