Here on VH1 Tuner, we’ve been supplying you with music to whet the Cuffin’ Season appetite all week long. Even though the find-a-mate scramble doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd, we wanted to help pysch you up and give you all an advantage over the competition. To bring you up to speed, we’ve already covered the following bases:
MONDAY: Let My Love Adorn You: Scooping A Hopeless Romantic
TUESDAY: I Wanna Be Down: Reeling-In A Distracted Workaholic
WEDNESDAY: Doin’ It Well: Bagging The No-Holds-Barred Freak
THURSDAY: We Belong Together: Pulling A (They’re Already Taken) Robbery
Let’s face it: some people just don’t want to be in a relationship. Speculating on why your crush may want to fly solo can keep you up at night, so instead of driving your ego into a tizzy, let today’s playlist soften the blow and remind you that you’re not alone.
Being sprung on someone who’s unattainable isn’t pleasant, but in Rock With You: Enticing The Cocky, Smooth Talker, you’ll see that even the most successful artists struggle with these romantic kerfuffles. Songs in the playlist reveal that there are definitely ways to convey your desires without sounding overly eager, and that without sacrificing your feelings’ sincerity, you can still play it cool and confident. Relaxed and lustful wisdom from Bob Marley, tips on what might be too much from Joss Stone, and gems of thirst-free honesty from Eric B. & Rakim sprinkle this list that represents both sides of the “player” coin. Still managing to exude a bit of mystery, these tracks often leave the listener in limbo, curious of the courtship’s final outcome.
And that’s the whole point. In Cuffin’ Season, the clock is always ticking, so the sooner you get comfortable being in a state of uncertainty with your endlessly-single bachelor or bachelorette, the better off you’ll be at formulating a plan to lock them in, Rico Suave style. Having confidence is half the battle, and hopefully after this week’s batch of music, you have a little more mojo in your dating arsenal. Go get ‘em, tiger!
