“Good music will set the mood for both of you”
Mood music is called by that name because it can totally change how your night is going to be. When you have a hottie over, it is imperative that you start everything perfectly. Having “I’m Sexy and I Know It” pop up in the middle of your sex playlist will only make her laugh or lose her slickness. You don’t want either of these things. Mood music should be like it is in the movies: you don’t actually realize it’s there. When you first put it on, sure the three beginning songs might get some attention but eventually it all fades into our subconscious to create a velvety atmosphere.
How to Pick Out the Best Music
Mood music is for her, not you. You won’t have the same taste in music, that’s just a fact of life. So when you get into iTunes you’re going to want to pick classic mood music that will get her in the…well you know. Guys are ready to get it on at a moment’s notice; women are the ones who need their slides wetted. If you’re really unsure or afraid of what to pick, then stick with instrumentals. There are no lyrics to offend her with and most likely no awkward ties to previous boyfriends. Since most people don’t put on instrumentals just because they like to listen to it they’re the safest bets to avoid her crying in your arms over the past. Try to be somewhat familiar with the CD you’re playing in case she decides to ask you what that beautiful song was.
Use the Music Effectively
“Make a good playlist”
When you use it right, mood music can be an easy conversation starter. If you’re not the most familiar with this woman you can always share little tidbits of info with her about what you’ve put on or why you like it so much. It might not be the most interesting thing to talk about, but it’s better than nothing.
Obviously you’re doing all of this to make her feel special. Any guy can just invite a woman over and put on a movie. You want to choose music that tells her that you thought about what she might like and what might make the atmosphere perfect. Songs that flow into one another and have sexy sax or guitar solos will accent the evening more than instrumental versions of Sting. Put it on repeat at a soft volume and pair the tracks with wine to be most effective.
What to Avoid
Sites like Pandora.com are awesome for a wider variety of songs in a genre that you already like, but they also like to throw in some real gems like “Ass” by Big Sean. Not a bad song, but more along the lines of a dirty hip hop video’s atmosphere. Just be careful when you’re thinking of doing random mixes. They’re faster, but time spent really does show up in the quality of the product. Two seconds to type in “love songs” in the search engine will get you a whole load of crap you wouldn’t have thought about.
