Top 5 Best Romantic Songs for Your First Date

If you use a dating service, perhaps it’s because you like the convenience of meeting kindred spirits online?

For anyone seeking liaisons sooner rather than later, these websites make arranging dates easy and much quicker than by visiting noisy singles bars or soulless nightclubs. Assuming the first date with someone special is imminent, you might want to consider the appropriately romantic musical backdrop. Here is the list of the top five mood-setting songs that were chosen based on a survey that was conducted by website.


Love Me Tender (Elvis Presley)


Elvis (who needs the surname?) is the bestselling solo artist of all time, and would it be safe to assume this record isn’t likely to be broken anytime soon? The so-called King of Rock n’Roll may have hailed from an inauspicious background in rural Mississippi, but his wonderful voice and era-defining style propelled him into the position of one of the 20th-century’s key cultural icons. Renowned (and sometimes regarded as shocking) for the way he gyrated his hips in time to his upbeat songs, this heartfelt ballad takes the tone down a bit. That voice. Those sentiments. So ideal for your first date!


Happy (Pharrell Williams)

Pharrell Williams’ soulful soprano voice has been compared to the legendary Curtis Mayfield. This single, released in 2013, was an instant smash hit, breaking all sorts of records, being the world’s most downloaded song of 2014, receiving a Grammy, and reaching the number one spot in the UK charts on three occasions. Surrender to the justified hype surrounding this catchy number, add it to your playlist and dance around the room to its catchy melodies with your new partner.


Don’t Stop Me Now (Queen)

Until his tragically untimely death in 1991, the late, great Freddie Mercury was regarded as one of the greatest rock frontmen of all time. His four-octave voice and fearlessly flamboyant stage persona were perfect for the exhilarating music initially purveyed by hard rock band Queen. But he was equally comfortable singing grandiose operatic pieces like ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’ For your first date, this track is bursting with melody and optimism, a rollercoaster of positive emotions that will bring you together with joy.


You’re the One That I Want (John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John)

The 1978 movie Grease was a massive commercial success, even although most of the actors playing the central characters in the 1950s US high schools were clearly the same generation as their teachers. At the time of its release, it was the highest-grossing musical, and it's a succession of joyous pop songs fizz with energy. The climactic song, when Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) dresses up as a scorching-hot rock chick while Danny (John Travolta) dresses down as a cardigan-clad jock is the film’s most memorable. Set against the backdrop of a fairground, the pair not only cement their love for each other, they clamber into the car souped-up by Danny and his T-Bird gang, Greased Lightnin’ before taking off and soaring into the clouds! The fact this is a duet has made it popular at karaokes across the world for decades, so why don’t you and your date follow this well-worn path? Soon you’ll be itching to dance to the hand-jive together!


We Found Love (Rihanna, featuring Calvin Harris)


Talk That Talk is Barbadian singing phenomenon Rhianna’s sixth album and this single was an electro-house smash when it was released in 2011. Hitting the number one spot across the world and shifting over 10 million copies, the insistent keyboard refrains and soaring choruses are the perfect accompaniment for your first date. You might also wish to check out the accompanying video, featuring an overtly amorous Rhianna and her young suitor.
