„Without music life would be a mistake” said Friedrich Nietzsche, and we would like to elaborate some more; without music a date cannot succeed. This is especially true for the preparation process before a date.
Whether it is under the shower or in front of your closet, these songs will attune you specially the hours before; help you forget the daily stress and uplift you, increase your self-confidence or lessen too high expectations when actively dating, this of course depending on your needs.
Sometimes it is the lyrics that will stimulate you; sometimes the melody will exhilarate you. Get inspired and prepare your very own playlist for your next date.
Stay clear from slow sentimental music if you are feeling worn out and what you need is an energy boost. In such moments, choose music that is upbeat, fun and most importantly that has a nice “groove”. For example, “The final countdown” from Europe would be a good choice; it is a classic everyone can rock to. You can also not go wrong if you listen to some 80s music; “Night fever” from the Bee Gees or “Ladies Night” from Kool & the Gang will get you started!
Currently there are some songs that simply cheer you up and get you in the right mood for a date; “Get lucky” from Daft Punk is one of them, as well as Loona which is sounding in the charts; "Rakatakata (Un Rayo De Sol)" is the unpronounceable title from her new Single.
If it is a song that should boost your self-confidence, the lyrics have to do the job. Best way is to learn the lyrics and sing the relevant bits again and again like a Mantra. Our recommendations should get you inspired and maybe make the playlist choice easier: Christina Aguilera in her song “Beautiful” speaks about inner beauty and states that we are all unique, and she is right! Emeli Sandé also expresses in a meditative way the strength of your own personality; she encourages us to keep our head up high, speak up and share our uniqueness with the world: that sounds like someone to fall in love with right?
This category of songs is especially interesting for those who have expectations that are too high when going on a date, meaning they are already planning the guest list for the wedding or expect the date to fail even before it has begun. In the first case, listen to "Don’t get married" by the Dubliners, and in the second case, listen to "Everybody gets a second chance" by Mike + The Mechanics.
