Okay, so here's the deal... generally I wouldn't get this open or personal on a site like this, but I kind of don't really give a fuck any more and most of you don't really know me any ways, so whatever. I'm asking for help from people because I'm currently making a mix for a girl as a birthday present, I already have a lot of good song ideas to go into this mix, but I figured there's nothing wrong with getting suggestions from other people, especially since most of you have good, and similar taste in music.
The mix I'm working on for this girl is kind of a punk, riot girl kind of mix of just songs that remind me of her, so basically female empowering, bad ass chick, kick ass songs that rock. I'm going to be totally honest here, I'm really into this girl, but I'm not trying to make this a lovey dovey mix with a bunch of love songs on it, cause I feel like that would be a bit much, if there are songs you'd like to suggest that have vague undertones of that kind of stuff don't hesitate to suggest them anyways, but I'm keeping it light and bad ass and lyrical content is kind of important...ish, so keep that in mind.
Also, this girl has a pretty wide taste in music, so it doesn't all have to be punk or even rock, she likes alternative, some rap, electronic, a bit of ska and all kinds of stuff, here's a short list of some of her favorite bands to give you an idea of what I'm working with: The Distillers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Green Day, Be Your Own Pet, The Horrors, The Kills, The Dead Weather, Violent Femmes, Coco Rosie, Uffie, Kiss Kiss, Refused, Stolen Babies, Dog Fashion Disco, Placebo, Made in Mexico, Menomena, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Crystal Castles, Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire, Frank Sinatra, Gogol Bordello and Beck.
The mix I have so far is kind of based around songs like "Rebel Girl" by Bikini Kill and "Bad Reputation" by Joan Jett, so think stuff like that...but keep in mind I'll accept any suggestions, as long as they're real genuine suggestions...those of you that just wanna be dicks and make fun or troll can fuck off, I don't have time for your shit. Which reminds me time is a bit of a factor since I'm trying to have this mix done within the next few days before her party this Saturday/Sunday ( April 2nd/3rd however, IF you find this discussion after then but still have good suggestions FEEL FREE to send them anyways since I will probably make future mixes!)
So if any of you guys would like to help a fellow punk make a really kick ass mix of awesome music for an amazing, kick ass girl it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your replies, they definitely help, though the mix never got given to her, for reasons I'd rather not go into, I still appreciate your help though, for the two of you that responded haha, I know this is a bit late, but I haven't been on here in quite a while and had almost forgotten about this...
