Simple enough: Let's get some music that's good to play in the car to let your date know you're hip and cool without being typical rock 'n roll, rap, hardcore electronica or mind-numbing dance music. You don't want to come off as being too niche-based in your music choices (like if you played nothing but metal or emo all night), but nothing too mainstream either. Something she hasn't heard in awhile or something covered in a way she's never thought of (like Blue Monday by Flight in my list). Something that plays not in the background or forefront, but somewhere in between. Not too heavy, not too soft. Good bass, a little punchy, a good melody. I've got a short playlist here I've amassed of songs others have recommended, and I have to thank Foucalt for the initial idea with his review of John Mayer's Your Body is a Wonderland; I've built the list around that tune. Without further ado, here it is so far: -Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair (Jaffa Remix) Nina Simone -Je T'Aime...Moi Non Plus Jane Birkin / Serge Gainsbourg Your Body Is a Wonderland John Mayer Undress Me Now Morcheeba Teardrop Massive Attack Otherwise Morcheeba Blue Monday Flunk care to add? Anything my taste finds is good enough and in context with the songs above will be added to this list here.
