Misery Is The River Of The World - Tom Waits.
I signed my divorce papers to that one.
But back to the original question, it's got to be, Thank You Too by My Morning Jacket. Again.

"It must be love". by Labbi Siffre. Although I definitely prefer the Madness version.
“Out beyond ideas of wrong and right, there is a field.
I'll meet you there."
Isn't the point of a mix tape, or mix cd, or mix whatever else that it should be intimate and personal?
In other words, an eclectic selection of tracks suggested by people on a hi-fi forum may make for a great compilation, but it won't mean so much to your other half. Presumably there are songs that mean a great deal to you both and really help you connect.
Forgive me, but consulting a bunch of near-strangers seems a rather clinical way to approach this.
All depends on the end result,
nudge nudge wink wink, say no more........
