What music puts you in the mood for romance? Hmmm... right now I think that might be some of the slower, grungier Depeche Mode tracks off of their Ultra and Songs of Faith and Devotion albums. And you can never go wrong with Barry White.
Where is the perfect place for romancing someone? Paris would be the obvious choice... especially for an American who hasn't been there before. Maui is another obvious choice. New Orleans and San Francisco are very romantic cities as well.
What kind of foods get you feeling romantic? Jägermeister and Maraschino cherries.
FQ LOVER: How would somebody go about winning your heart? Don't try to change me. Don't lie to me. Don't make me be the one to always decide what to do. Don't smoke. Don't expect me to read your mind. Don't smother me. Don't buy me stuffed animals. Don't obsess over my every move. Don't demand to know what I've been doing every moment of every day. Don't ask me to like your friends that don't like me. Don't ask me to forgive you for making out with your ex-boyfriend because "nothing happened." Don't get upset when I don't feel like going shopping. Don't be cruel. Don't play mind-games. Don't think you can't talk to me about it. Don't get mad at me for something without letting me know why. Don't go to bed angry. Don't think I don't care. Or, if all else fails, iron my shirt and buy me a beer.

Lots of dont’s there – what about the dos?
Jägermeister really must have undergone a massive image change on its way across the Atlantic!
Awww… I’ve got DO iron my shirt and DO buy me a beer in there! That’s about it… really. 🙂
Yes, the Jäger image makeover was called “Operation: Jäger Girls.” It’s an institution here now… the drink of choice when you just want to get wasted!
1 ounce Jagermeister
1 ounce Root Beer Schnapps
Pour ingredients into a shot glass, garnish with a maraschino cherry and serve.
Voile! Instant romanace (and with enough of them instant sex ; )
And no sex at all if you have too many of them. 🙂
Actually Dave, the great music from the 50’s is the only way to go in the “romantic” Dept.
Who could say “no” while the Platters,Drifters,Coasters,Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, and Elvis were playing in the background!!!
Somehow I missed like, a week of Blogography…so Yeay! Now I can read new stuff.
Jaegermeister for romance? BLAGH!
Well..on second thought…that stuff does totally and completley take away my ability to walk. I remember once being at a show (One I wantedt osee really bad, like Peter Murphy or summat)and I had a beer and a Jaegermeister, and suddenly, I’m trying to take a nap in the middle of the floor. People just stepping over me and sh*t. I had no control of it, it was just “Hey! Look! Floor!”
So, if you are the sort of guy who would take advantage of a woman with no feeling in her legs, and no ability for self-actualization, yeah, jaegermeister is totally romantic.
PS Romantic music? I still like “Closer” by NIN. Raunchy, sexy as all get out. Then you sort of slide into the mellower stuff…..some Neil Finn, Roxy Music. It’s all about tempo…and, er, thrust.
And here I thought that Jager couldn’t get any more romantic! I can picture it now… the woman says “I’m very particular about the guys I sleep with, and I particularly don’t want to sleep with you… but what the heck, meet me in 20 minutes. — Bartender, I’d like six shots of Jager and somebody to carry me up to this gentleman’s room.”
It’s a Harlequin Romance to be sure!
Oh yes… “Closer” would have to be one of the most romantic songs ever! And “Slave to Love” by Roxy Music is definitely in there too.
