Okay gents (and ladies especially), I am planning on making a mix CD for my wife of lovely pieces of prog, but the "hidden track" will be a song I wrote for her a very long time ago.  This will be my anniversary gift to her this year (in addition to mind-blowing sex). 

Multiple votes are checked, so go nuts.  Choose the pieces you think would make for a great little compilation for a gal who likes Cat Stevens, contemporary Christian music, some country and blues, Norah Jones and basically all things acoustic.

These are all tracks (well almost anyway) I think she will enjoy.  I know her best, but you geniuses know great music.  I want to hear what you think will make a good compilation CD for an anniversary (that will end with a surprise song from yours truly Wink).

Go to it!

Happy anniversary! Heart
I suggested Tull, Hackett, and the Floyd.
I notice there's no Gentle Giant on this list.  Wink

She sounds like she's on a pretty similar page musically to my girlfriend. With that in mind, my Beck loves June and Lazarus. Also, she has a thing for the Decemberists, but not really any of those in any specific sense. Maybe Summer Song or The Crane Wife 3?

Also, I think that the Gentle Giant track Think of Me with Kindness should be included. That twangs the female heartstrings. At least in the one case I really care about.

Hackett's The Virgin & The Gypsy would probably work the best out of all listed.

Hope you have a fantastic dayHeart

Lazarus for me, if only because my lovely wife thought it utterly beautiful when I first played it to her. She's not easily impressed by progWink

Izz - I Believe
 
Iona - Today
 
Peter Gabriel - Here Comes the Flood (solo piano version)
 
----Carpet Crawlers would be extremely creepy in this context.
 
 
Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.
