Sings we do for love

Music is already known to affect behaviour. Games and movies with aggressive lyrics are known to increase aggressive feelings and behaviour. What French researchers wondered however, was would the reverse hold true? For instance, would listening to a love song make a woman more likely to accept a proposal for a first date from an unknown man? To test this they first had a group of women (who were not in the study) rate a group of men for attractiveness. The researchers then chose the man judged by most women as “average” looking to be their man for the experiment: the man’s name was Antoine. The next phase was to set Antoine up in a room while a series of women came and waited in a waiting room. While in the waiting room the women listened to either a love song or a neutral song. The women were then ushered into the room with Antoine where they engaged in a discussion about food products guided by the experimenter. That experimenter then left them alone for a moment which is when Antoine delivered his line, “My name is Antoine, as you know, I think you are very nice and I was wondering if you would give me your phone number. I’ll phone you later and we can have a drink together somewhere next week.” The significant finding was that when the women had been listening to a love song Antoine had a 52 per cent success rate in getting a first date but when they had been listening to a neutral song the success rate dropped back to 28 per cent. This might be due to either a generally positive feeling being generated by the love song or the song may have acted as a “prime” to prepare the women for displays of behaviour associated with that prime. Whatever the reason, it certainly seems that a loading up your ipod with a few love songs to be subtly played next time you ask someone out on a date certainly won’t do any harm.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
