How To Pick Romantic Music

Choosing romantic music could either make or break that special evening with your significant other.  While this may seem like a very easy task, it is one that requires a bit of consideration.  It is commonly understood that people all over the world have different tastes in music.  This does not change with music of the romantic nature.  Here are a few things to consider before you choose that one perfect song or album.

  1. What do you both like?  This question is a very important one.  If we set up a scenario where you are having your significant other or date over to your place for dinner, you will want to have the appropriate music to eat by.  Now let's say you put on your favorite country music love ballad by LeAnn Rimes.  If your date does not like country music--whether he admits it or not--this is going to be a huge turn-off. 

    This is where your powers of investigation come in.  If this is a date with a guy that you do not know very well, try to feel him out before the dinner.  You can tell a lot about a person by learning his taste in music.  If you have been with your date for some time, then this should not be hard at all.  In fact you might even like the same kind of music.  Keeping on familiar ground will be important.  There is no reason for the two of you to be listening to a romantic Italian opera, when neither of you like opera and you really want to be listening to Alicia Keys.

  2. What if I'm not 'big' into music?  There are a lot of people around that do not regularly listen to music or have a favorite artist.  If you are one of those people, don't worry; it will not be hard for you to find romantic music.  You might consider doing an Internet search for romantic songs.  There are many lists out there that have been compiled by music fanatics!  No doubt you will find classic love songs, Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra, etc.  You do not have to go out and buy all of these albums.  Every record store has a compilation section and there will always be romantic music or love song compilations.  These are great for many reasons.  The biggest one is because you will not have to be constantly changing the cd's, you will be able to let the music play on while you are concentrating on more important things.
  3. What if I don't like their 'love' songs?  Now let's consider that you are into one particular kind of music.  You prefer a much more stylized album.  If you like rock music and so does your significant other, there aren't going to be many rock love albums out there, unless you spring for the 80's Monster Ballads, but that is an entirely different arena!  If you take a look at the rock albums you own, there is bound to be at least one slower love song on many of them.  Chances are you already know it well.  If you have the capabilities, make your own compilation disc.  Burn all of your favorite rock love songs onto one disc and then you avoid the cost and are left with a cd you will listen to over and over again.  This can be done with any type of music.

Choosing romantic music does not have to be hard; it can be very fun!  It is also very much a matter of opinion.  While one might enjoy an artist like Harry Connick Jr., another might enjoy Nine Inch Nails.  There is no right or wrong, only what you and your date enjoy!
