My girlfriend’s into noise music. How the hell can I make her a romantic mixtape?

This is a hard one, Dave. I based this one on the more intense side of romance But what is love without some sort of (non-physical) violence?

01. Shellac - "Prayer To God" (1000 Hurts)
02. Beelzebub Youth - "Christian Lovers" (Music From Hell)
03 James Chance & The Contortions - "Flip Your Face" (No New York)
04. Big Black - "L Dopa" (Songs About Fucking)
05. Daniel Johnston - "Grievances" (Songs Of Pain)
06. Brian Eno - "Here Come The Warm Jets" (Here Come The Warm Jets)
07. Gang Of Four - "Damaged Goods" (Entertainment!)
08. Can - "Mary, Mary So Contrary" (Monster Movie)
09. CocoRosie - "Candyland" (La Maison De Mon Reve)
10. Sonic Youth - "Shadow Of A Doubt" (EVOL)
