One track mind

It’s the end of another date and you’re not sure how it’s all going: if she’s quiet because of something you did, if it’s all fine, if she can just generally be indecipherable like this.  You’re a man.  You don’t have a clue.  Asking her is too frightening, too direct.

If the situation allows, ideally if you’re driving her somewhere, ask her to pick the music from an iPod: an artist or a track.  This might give decent hints about her mood and outlook without needing to have a conversation.  Different track selections can be interpreted in any number of ways.

Aerosmith: you’re not turning straight round after dropping her home, you lucky man.

Blur: No Distance Left To Run – you’re fucked, obviously, but in a sad amicable way.

Blur: Girls and Boys / Parklife – all is well, fresh, fun and fertile.

Cee Lo Green: Fuck You – she suspects about the thing with her sister, or those looks you were giving her friend weren’t that subtle.

Coldplay: could mean anything: she’s generally a bit mopey and has issues, is tired and bored, just likes Coldplay.

Cyndi Lauper: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun – she cheated on you with your better looking, more “fun” friend.  But she’s sorry.

Gloria Gaynor: I Will Survive – if this is on your iPod, she thinks you’re gay.  With solid reason.

Frank Sinatra: Ain’t That A Kick In The Head – she doesn’t like you that much but doesn’t want anyone else to have you either.  She’s about to shoot you dead, unless her brothers get there first.

Hot n Juicy / Mousse T: Horny – she’s horny

JLS – how old IS she?  Look out for police.

U2: she has no taste, which probably doesn’t reflect well on things.  Just throw her out the car.

The XX – you’re doomed, but in a nice way.
