Music can put you in the right mood.
And it can pull you straight out of it.
When you’re on your Valentine’s Day date, there’s lots of music to choose from to rock in your car, during dinner or while sharing a bottle of wine in front of the fireplace.
But you must remember that there are also some songs you don’t want to play unless the date is going so poorly that you simply want it to end immediately.
I’m here to help, and the following songs are guaranteed to ruin the mood on any date. So avoid them if you want things to go smoothly — or keep them in your back pocket if you’re looking for a way out.
Listen to them all below. If you comment about your favorite mood-ruiner, I’ll add it to the playlist.
“I Do Not Hook Up” by Kelly Clarkson — A great, empowered sentiment, but the middle of a romantic evening is a poor time to blast this one.
“Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye — Supposedly the ultimate mood-enhancing song, “Let’s Get It On” will almost assuredly kill the mood. I love Marvin Gaye, but almost anyone is going to giggle at this song instead of grooving to it.
“Lips of an Angel” by Hinder — This one is a two-fer: It’s about cheating and it’s also completely terrible.
“Tears in Heaven” by Eric Clapton — Fantastic song, but also one detailing the emotional story of Mr. Clapton’s son, who died way too early. A good cry is not going to get you a goodnight kiss.
“Walking on Sunshine” by Katrina and the Waves — A little too loud and peppy for an amorous night out.
“All Night Long” by Lionel Richie — Anyone who catches you playing this song is gonna think your intentions match up with its incredibly catchy refrain.
“Smack My Bitch Up” by Prodigy — Violence never got anyone to think, “That was a great date.”
Anything from “Glee” — Anything else would be better. Anything at all.
“Your Body is a Wonderland” by John Mayer — Haha. This song … this song is terrible.
“I Just Had Sex” by The Lonely Island — It’s a parody that makes us laugh a lot because it’s so over the top, but it’s gonna freak your date right out.
“Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm” by Crash Test Dummies — One of the most bizarre pop tunes ever constructed will not only cause a break in conversation but assuredly stop it right in its tracks.
