Deep Cuts: Dating Songs

My Dating Game story didn’t turn out as good as I hoped, but that’s okay. That’s kind of how stories go sometimes: the initial thrill of the idea, the excitement of the execution, and the sad realization that this one isn’t going to work out the way you hoped.

That’s how a lot of dates go, too. The good news is that there’s plenty more of both stories and dates waiting for you, and there’s also the possibility that bad date/story won’t seem so bad in retrospect.

Besides, unlike a bad date I can always keep working on my Dating Game story. So there’s that.

Anyway, songs for dates:

“Dating Game Theme Song,” The Mariachi Brass featuring Chet Baker.

“First Date,” Danko Jones.

“Blind Date,” The Boomtown Rats.

“I Wish I Had A Date,” Fishbone.

“Datin’,” Elvis Presley.

“An Empty Cup (and a Broken Date),” Buddy Holly.

“Little Rosie (Dating Game Closing Theme),” Unknown (written by Chuck Barris).

There you have it: seven songs for that hot date. What did I miss? I’m listening.

  1. Yeah……I am kind of shocked at Robbo not producing a list. It actually caused me to not even try, not even cheat with The Google. If Robbo got nuthin’ there ain’t nuthin’.

    And as I have already written over on it, I loved the dating story. It was not a miss for the reader here, definitely not.
