Music is the most potent mood enhancer of all. For all that you can shower a new partner with compliments, send them flowers, or compose a romantic text, nothing will provide a strong emotional backdrop to your time together than a beautiful love song. Whether that’s the subtle piano music playing in the background as you stare into each other’s eyes over a candlelit dinner, or the pounding House beat you gyrate to sexily at your favorite nightclub, to paraphrase William Shakespeare, music is the food of love!
If you want to form an instant connection with another single on a dating site, a strong recommendation is discovering what musical tastes you share. Write your music preferences in your profile to find a like-minded person. Then your online dating and chatting can increase in something more – a first date. But for success, you should choose music that helps to tune into a romantic mood. This can start when you are psyching yourself up for that all-important initial encounter.
How to prepare for the first date?
However you’re getting ready – soaking in a bath, trying on different outfits, doing hair/make-up – you should have an appropriate soundtrack to accompany you, invigorating you with confidence and optimism.
Why it important to choose the right melody.
Whatever your tastes in music – folk, rock, jazz, pop – every tune is unique. Each song will have different ways of talking to your heart. Choose music befitting of your occasion, whether you’re looking for emotions that are subtle and coolly romantic, or fiery with passion!
Brown Eyed Girl, Van Morrison
This Irish crooner has been singing his heartfelt melodies and wonderful lyrics for decades. This is one of his most well-known tracks, bursting with the type of joy that exemplifies feeling in love. “Standing in the sunlight laughing, Hiding behind a rainbow’s wall, Slipping and sliding, All along the waterfall with you.”
It’s Raining Men, The Weather Girls
An insanely catchy and utterly danceable song, it doesn’t matter whether you’re hoping it’s going to be raining men or women on your date (perhaps you have a penchant for both?!) This track will put you in the mood for romance and partying the moment you hit ‘play’ on your phone’s playlist.
Heroes, David Bowie
This is the epic song that was heard all over the world when Bowie performed it at the height of the famous Live Aid concert back in 1985, spreading optimism and hope to impoverished people around the globe. Its sentiments are so uplifting, they will put you in the mood to make the most of your date experience. Heroes for a day? Once you’ve shared your first passionate kiss with your new partner you’ll feel as if you could be a hero for the rest of your time together.
Crazy in Love, Beyoncé
Another fabulously upbeat song, there’s a reason Beyoncé is currently one of the world’s bestselling pop singers. Listen to that electrifying beat as it pounds from the speakers. Sometimes those first throes of love do make you feel a little crazy! But above all, this brilliant song will just make you want to get up and dance all night!
I Feel Good, James Brown
James Brown is a singer who needs no introduction. Someone once coined the phrase ‘The Godfather of Soul.’ To say this guy is overflowing with confidence is something of an understatement. He probably dreamed up that epithet himself! But when he sings about feeling good, you and your partner will feel that way, too. Thousand times over!
