That’s our song
Music … it makes even those in a coma just about to cross over to the other side come back to us. And what a great equalizer when getting to know someone in the early stages of dating. Now I can vouch for that. I must admit I even have a song for the day I lost my you know what … UB40 did it for me. Still rocks my world when some dude is busy rocking my world.
Imagine the number of times you are on a date and a song comes up at the restaurant you are dinning and suddenly, the world comes to a stand still for a moment and before you know it, you have switched the conversation to "You know this song?" or "Remember this song?"
Now, "What kind of music do you like?" is asked on every dating website in existence, and discussed during first dates. And the humorous thing about music and first dates is the realization of how much of an age gap there is between you and your date … you know (Man that song is soooooooo 60s) :roll: Sometimes you may meet someone who enjoys music like Ambrosia’s "How Much I Feel," and you go “Damn! You weren’t even born yet!᾿.
Your perfect partner could be online right now...
What are you looking for?
Thing is most moments you share with people during your dating life end up being linked to some music. And when you hear certain songs, they take you back … way back … for a brief moment or so to those good times (even bad) spent with that special other. And is it a mere coincidence that when going through a breakup, the DJ at your favorite radio station plays EVERY sad, depressing relationship song ever written in a nonstop music block? And for those going through a divorce, that first dance song becomes the newest definition of a one-hit wonder.
Good times or bad times, I think music just does wonders for the dating world … connecting people, breaks the awkward first date moments, and from time to time, it gives that good cry and soothes you to sleep. Now where would this dating world be without music?
So what kind of music reminds you of that someone and why? For me, I told you … UB40’s ‘Here I Am (Come And Take Me)’
