How to Arrange the perfect Muse Mixtape

Hey, I know this thread is a bit useless but I need some help and I wasn't sure where else to make one

My dad wants me to make a muse mixtape that he can send to his friends, he's specified quite a few of his favorite songs (I'll list them in a moment), but I need help figuring which to include and In what order.


Uprising
Plug In Baby
Map of the Problematique
Sing for Absolution
Undisclosed Desires
Invincible
Supermassive Black Hole
Starlight
Stockholm Syndrome
Resistance
I Belong to You
Hysteria
Take a Bow
Knights of Cydonia
Unintended

that's the list and order he's given me... but obviously I can't fit all of them onto a CD.

How would you arrange a muse mixtape for some... laid back middle aged people who have never heard muse before?
With the goal of complete conversion/assimilation in mind of course

If you can't fit them all in take out I Belong To You, Resistance, Sing for Absolution and/or Invincible.

Uprising
Supermassive Black Hole
Starlight
Take a Bow
Undisclosed Desires
Map of the Problematique
Plug In Baby
Hysteria
Stockholm Syndrome
Unintended
Knights of Cydonia

Catchy into electronicy into riff-tastic into slow song into rocking mixtape ender If you include any two of the others put them before Knights of Cydonia. And maybe to introduce a new fan add a piano song (Feeling Good? Sunburn?) to show they do them aswell. Hope it goes well!

take out Sing for Absolution, Take a Bow, I Belong to You and Supermassive Black Hole. And put in somewhere Time is Running Out.

Here's the order I would put it in:

1. Time is Running Out
2. Plug in Baby
3. Stockholme Syndrome
4. Hysteria
5. Uprising
6. Invincible
7. Knights of Cydonia
8. Unintended
9. Undisclosed Desires
10. Map of the Problematique
11. Starlight
12. Resistance

If you have enough room put New Born or Apocalypse Please in there somewhere.

I'd take out UD, SBH and Take a Bow. I'd definitely add B&H, and maybe Blackout, Bliss, CE, FG (old people like covers, don't they??) and MM to give them a better feel for more than just the last three albums.

I would add Feeling Good. It's a well-known song and hearing their different take on it may be a good thing for first-time listeners.

Oh, and if you do add KoC, add the HAARP version. That's the song that got me into Muse, despite the fact I'd heard the album version before.
