You've finally scored some alone time with the guy or girl you've been hanging out with for weeks, and the anticipation for this moment has been building. To ease nerves a little bit, your crush opens a laptop and puts on some nice -- oh God, wait, what is that? You hear the ominous, annoying jingle of the base beat of "Ice, Ice, Baby." The giddy and anticipative mood is lost. It's all awkward from this point on.
As you might already be aware, certain songs and even genres of music can do a lot to ruin a romantic night with that special someone. If you're looking to get intimate with that guy or girl you genuinely like, please, by all means, do not play any of the following songs under any circumstance:
This one almost goes without saying. It's mostly guys who should take caution with this one, as most girls have seen “13 Going on 30” at some point in their lives. If you haven't seen it, don't worry -- just know that the majority of people probably picture a repulsive, shirtless man thrusting his hips when they hear this unfortunate '90s tune. To be safe, if it's even on your iTunes library for any reason (judging you), delete it now to avoid possible "shuffle" mishaps.
Would you ever ask someone if you could "play with their panty line"? (Really creative lyrics on Lil Jon and the Ying Yang Twins' part). Well, then don't play this song when you're getting snugly. Also, flashbacks to awkward 8th grade dances are almost a guarantee when anyone hears this song.
"Pony" is extremely catchy and at first listen, maybe even seductive. But have you ever taken a look at the lyrics? Creepy and gross. On the off-chance your crush is also familiar with the lyrics, avoid this song. Yes, it had a guest appearance in Magic Mike, but unless you're Channing Tatum, you're not going to get away with playing it.
Hopefully I'm not alone on this one, but I would most definitely suffer from an anxiety attack if anyone tried to play Skrillex while attempting to make a move. Just, no.
You probably have good intentions with this one. You're trying to tell your crush that you're sensitive. You care. This might have worked in the late '80s, early '90s with a few, but definitely not in 2012. If, like "Ice, Ice, Baby," Celine Dion is included on your iTunes library, make a separate folder for that stuff or something.
