Step 1: Pick the Songs! – No duh! Well, while this the most obvious step, it is also the most important (and the most time consuming) part of the process. Sure, you can just go into your music collection and start picking out love songs at random, and if you don’t have a big collection, there are plenty of resources online to help you come up with ideas (check out for instance, About.com’s list of the Top 100 love songs). But if you want to put together a truly thoughtful CD, you should really think through each and every song you pick. Look for songs that you’ve had fun listening to together in the past, and for song titles and lyrics that would be truly meaningful to the recipient. Here are a few examples of some of the songs on the CD I made for Olga, and why I picked them:

  • Green Eyes by Coldplay – Olga and I recently went to a Coldplay concert and we both love the band. I picked Green Eyes though because Olga has the most beautiful green eyes I’ve ever seen so the song makes me think of her whenever I listen to it.
  • Here & Now by Luther Vandross – This one is a bit of an inside joke that I’ll let you guys in on. Olga is the most positive and optimistic person I have ever met. It is one of the qualities I love about her most. She likes to talk about living in the “Here & Now” so when I saw this song title I just had to include it on the CD. Turns out it is an unbelievable love song too by one of the all-time R&B legends.
  • She’s My Kind of Rain by Tim McGraw – I haven’t liked the rain ever since we were forced as kids to do recess indoors when it was raining outside. I picked this song because if I were to like any kind of rain it would be Olga’s kind.
  • Count on Me by Bruno Mars – Olga and I are huge Bruno Mars fans and this is “our song.” Obviously, if you are making a love song music mix, you should include your song. And if you are in a relationship don’t have a song, then get one ASAP.

Step 2 – Burn a physical CD – I know that most people don’t really use CDs anymore, but there is something about receiving a physical present that makes it much more meaningful. And once you give her the CD, you can always put the songs on her iPod if that’s where she is more likely to listen to it. [If you have never burned a CD before, it is very easy to do. There are plenty of tutorials that you can find on Youtube. Here’s one that shows you how to burn a CD on iTunes.]

Recent Results of Liverpool

Recent Results of Liverpool

This season, Liverpool has once again become a real contender for victory in the English Premier League. The team of Jurgen Klopp is the main competitor of Manchester City; a busy second half of the season is ahead of it, and the players will have to prove their ambitions.

This summer, the Reds enhanced their lineup significantly and were able to strengthen the problem areas in the defense noticeably. Due to this, Liverpool started to miss less goals (thanks to Alisson), and the effectiveness of the attack remained at the same level. Thanks to this, the team fights on equal terms with Manchester City for winning the EPL gold medals. Of course, the lineup and teamwork of Guardiola’s team is better, but Liverpool also has a number of advantages:

Individual skills of players. Do not forget that the Reds have the best player of the previous season, Mohammed Salah. The Egyptian still looks great, and together with Mane and Firmino they simply destroy the rivals’

Tactical flexibility. Yes, Klopp’s lineup and formation are about the same, but we should pay attention to the results. Last year, it was the matches with middle level teams and outsiders that was the main problem of Liverpool and did not allow the team to really fight for the title, but now there isn’t such problem.

It is not necessary to remind again that the last time the Reds were the first was in 1990, and for them the victory is something incredible. And right now, Liverpool has the best potential for winning the title.

The team looks balanced and shows its maximum, not only against the rivals of the same level, but also against less cool teams. You can always follow the Liverpool score on the site of sports statistics. Here, the results of the team are given special attention. Thanks to the livescore you will know all the latest news from the team.

Reds’ Prospects in Second Half of Season

Much will depend on the club’s results in the international arena. It is not clear what is more important for Klopp, the English Premier League or the Champions League. Most likely, if the team still has chances in the championship, it is the internal championship that will become the priority.

However, the advantage of the current Liverpool is an excellent opportunity for rotation. The coach can change several players at once and it will not be fatal for that crew. Klopp is already conducting such experiments during the season. Closer to its end, the leaders will need more rest. In the long run, this can play a decisive role and become the main asset of the Reds in the fight for trophies in the international and domestic arenas.
