Song for the Soundtrack of Your Date Tonight

Let love rule. You got 99 things to do, but tonight there’s only one. Lock eyes. Despite the swirl of activity around you, the only thing in the world that matters is being in the moment. Best gift you can give your date is undivided attention. Well, that, and a soft touch, a cold beer and a slow dance.

Song for the Soundtrack of Your No Date Tonight

Are you lonesome tonight? Could be dysfunctional dating syndrome. Those most at risk are career driven fools with an electronic appendage that spews out an endless supply of email and orders. The career provides an excellent hideout from reality and relationships. Affection is scheduled into your iCal and feelings are promptly deleted when the event is up. Date the hot ones. No time to waste on the heart, it’s what’s on the outside that counts. You’re all work, baby. How’s that working out for you?
