Ok, this is gonna sound odd.

I need some song that will tell someone you are not interested in them but I don't want the somgs to be too obvious, cause I've already got some of THOSE for the cd. This is what I've got so far...

Cheap Trick - Born To Raise Hell
Ben Folds Five - Breakup Song
The Monroes - What Do All The People Know
Wilco - I Am Trying To Break Your Heart
Talking Heads - Girlfriend Is Better
Squeeze - Tempted By The Fruit Of Another
Greg Khin Band - The Breakup Song
Third Eye Blind - God Of Wine
Sarah McLachlan - Do What You Have To Do

As I had said, I already got the OBVIOUS ones, any other suggestions would be greatly apprecieated, Thanks.

Edit: adding songs...

Just show the Person You Don't Like In That Way your thread about making lists of deaths each day. Smiley face.

Hmm, Godsmack- "Whatever"... the "GO AWAY" over and over should get the point across, but might step over the line of being obvious. (And what the hell? You want this person to stop pursuing you, yet you want to let them know that as subtly as possible? Guh?) Or do you like this person as a friend and don't want to piss them off?

Nothing says "I don't like you in that way" like making somebody a CD.

YOU ARE ON MY LIST! THE "CREEPY" LIST!

Why not just the entire album, since "Go Away" is on nearly every track.

I'm thinking Hallmark makes a ton of cash off of you, soggy shrub. Anyways, I'll try to be helpful, but the subtlety factor is a bitch and a half. Perhaps "Let It Be" by the Beatles. Definately end the thing with "Killing Me Softly with His Song" Flack or Fugee version, your choice.

Weird Al Yankovic - One More Minute

Unless you consider lines like "I'd rather clean all the bathroom in Grand Central Station with my tongue
Than spend one more minute with you" a wee bit too obvious.

Would NIN "Reptile" be too mean?

"She spreads herself wide open to let the insects in.
She leaves a trail of honey to show me where she's been.
She has the blood of reptile just underneath the skin.
Seed from a thousand lovers drips down from within.
Oh, my beautiful liar.
Oh, my precious whore.
My disease. My infection.
I am so unpure."

How about:

"Get the Fuck Away" - Kill-A-Watts
"Eat Shit and Die" - Broke Americans
"Why Won't You Leave Me?" - Home Grown
"I Want You To Die" - The Dwarves (or Mondo Generator)
"I Don't Want You" - Untamed Youth
"Piss Off" - The Unseen
"Fuck Off and Die" - Chaotic Discord

Are these too subtle?

(sigh!)

It seems that the word 'subtlety' is lost on you people. Yes, I do still want to keep her as a friend... she's useful at the moment and even after that, she's a nice kid who doesn't get that I do not LIKE her THAT way. It seems that my poor judgement in presupposing that people on a message board could grasp that concept was my shortcomming.

Ubermonkeys: The CD was her idea, I have a problem expressing my feeling because when I open my mouth, I sound like an ass most of the time. I have a hard time saying what I mean or I say what I mean but it's NOT what I meant to say. I'm a guy, I can be an ass sometimes without meaning to be an ass.

Thanks for the (NON)help, but I guess I'll have to keep searching on my own.

If you want to keep her as a friend, and don't want her as a gf, you could try a little country.
Please Remeber Me by Tim McGraw is a song about messing up a relationship with a woman and telling her she will find someone good someday.
More Ben Folds Five is always good too.
Solitary Man by Neil Diamond is pretty subtle and could get the point across as to what you want to remain.

To be fair, you never said you wanted to keep her as a friend and you were looking for subtle songs.

But if she's so into you, won't you just be encouraging her by giving her the mix CD? I'd back way off of her rather than giving her gifts. Especially homemade gifts.

astrobstrd is very correct in his assessment. The original post made it sound like you wanted us to avoid the obvious choices for "leave me alone" songs. One that comes to mind for the "it's just not meant to be in THAT way" sort of vibe is "A Sorta Fairytale" by Tori Amos.

I just noticed that even that initial post there from me proves that I am not good at saying what I mean and meaning what I say. Sometimes, you need to just spell it out to people, but that's not me, so I suffer.

If you've already slept with her, something from Afghan Whigs' Gentleman might be a thought.

If you're not opposed to allowing her to maintain some kind of glimmer of hope, Mayonnaise by Smashing Pumpkins works well.

Or you could go all schizoid and put on more Wilco (She's a Jar is sufficiently unnerving, I think), maybe some Tom Waits (Dirt in the Ground, or Misery is the River of the World), Tragically Hip's Scared, Leonard Cohen's Suzanne, and then Closer by Nine Inch Nails. Cap it off with something like Tomorrow from Annie and you're there...
