Selecting music for a romantic evening can be a dangerous road to travel. Depending on how serious you are with your potential mate, the wrong musical selections can easily reveal you as a complete cheeseball. Of course, you'll need to hone your romantic list to fit the taste of your date. However, some hard and fast rules apply across the board. For example, you would never want to include songs like "I Wanna Sex You Up" by Color Me Badd or anything by G.G. Allin or Blowfly. Just trust me on that.

If you're looking for that perfect soundtrack to a big date, this could be the playlist for you. I have taken great care to select only highly-sophisticated numbers that can put even the most unassuming milquetoast in a romantic mood. It's an eclectic list that will show your diversity and taste. It’s heavy on standards, bossa nova, and jazz, but with just the right blend of classic soul, R&B, and pop to keep it interesting. At just over three hours, it'll give you enough time to get some wine and courage into your gut so you can make your move. Good luck, and remember, respect and a sincere interest will take you far in the romance department.More...

    Words are distracting… try a Jackie Gleason release. There was a good one talked about a few weeks ago. It was “The Romantic Moods of Jackie Gleason” 2 cd compilation [remastered in 1996].

    Really smooth… really.
