Friday Fixat10ns Snuggle

[8tracks width=”300″ height=”250″ playops=”” url=”″]

Have you ever wanted to cuddle with someone, but just couldn’t think of the right songs to cuddle to? No? Well, with the groundbreaking new Cuddlr app, this could suddenly become a very real problem. Don’t worry, though, the 4E team has developed a playlist to set the mood, but not set the mood too much (if you know what I mean).

Jackson Browne
This is tune is soft and has some killer saxophone. The sweet sound of Jackson Browne’s voice will put you at ease. Plus, it asks the all important question: “Won’t you stay, just a little bit longer?”


Even if you aren’t from Boston, you can appreciate the delicate intro, as Augustana’s piano player tickles the ivories and you and your snuggle buddy get comfortable.

“Back at One”
Brian McKnight

Try to listen to this song and not get goosebumps, I dare you. (But don’t watch the music video, it’s kind of weird.)

“Wherever You Will Go”
The Calling

To be honest, a lot of the lyrics are kind of abstract. However, the message is great, and it’s a pretty tender song to play with your cuddler.

“Lips of an Angel”

These last two are your great rock-romance hybrids. The chorus picks up with a little bit of heavier, grittier rock, but they aren’t fooling anyone. They are just hopeless romantics, wishing they had someone to snuggle with.

David Gray

While this song obviously works better if you are snuggling with someone named Kathleen, it’s not necessary. David Gray’s voice is just comforting and relaxing no matter your name.

“Tiny Dancer”
Elton John

“Hold me closer, tiny dancer.” Simple, straightforward and backed up by a phenomenal piano part. What else do you need?

Enrique Iglesias
Creepy whispering intro aside, this song just screams “I want to cuddle with you”.

Hunter Hayes

Talk about a heart-melter. Hunter Hayes knows just what to tell a girl to make her feel wanted. Or at least he wrote a song about it.

“I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing”

No snuggle session would be complete without Steven Tyler winning his way into your heart. This song is powerful. He says he doesn’t want to miss a thing, and I believe him.

With a playlist like this, you should never be afraid to hop on the snuggle bus.


Activities for You and Your Cold Weather Crush

Feeling cold? There’s nothing like body heat to do the trick, so why not grab a date to keep you warm? I mean, come on guys, it’s simple science. As the leaves fall away and we’re left with a cooler climate to contend with, take solace in all the new date possibilities that become available. So make yourselves available… winter wonder is in store for all of you.

  1. Ice Skating: Girls, we know you (thought you) were a figure skater when you were just younger, show off those figure eights. Guys, your move is not having any moves, do you need to hold on tight to keep yourself from falling (head over heels)? The tighter the better… or if you’re both skating aficionados, there’s always room for a little friendly competition to bring people together. Racing anyone?
  2. Coffee: It’s cold, you need something warm, and just like in the movies you get asked out for a coffee date. It’s simple, it’s casual, and it’s cute. Do it. Nothing like watching the snow fall with a hot drink in your hand. Hot chocolate is also always an option. As is Irish coffee: nothing like a little alcohol to spice things up.
  3. Sea Catch: Good food. Fireplace. Done. Talk a walk by the canal when you’re done eating for some prime hand holding time.
  4. Movies: We all know what Christmastime means: movie releases. Not what you were thinking? Oh… Well then. Take a date to the movies for some cold air relief. It’s dark, you get to sit…. The upsides are endless.
  5. Concerts: Hit up the 9:30 club for some awesome shows. Nada Surf, G. Lov and Special Sauce (saucy!), and Alex Clare are in the next month’s line up. As you dance and sing along in a crowd of people, pushed together by the mosh pit, you can’t help but enjoy. You might want to skip Purity Ring’s performance… no no we kid.

I just wanted to let you guys know that in researching this article someone suggested strip bowling as a date idea, yep, take that for what you will, whatever it may be.

Stay warm, stay toasty, here here to winter cuddling, snuggling, and all around debauchery.
