Music influences the attractiveness of people, shows for example a study by the University of Innsbruck. Dating apps take advantage of this phenomenon. With Tinder and other dating apps, users can connect their profile to Spotify and link their favorite songs. In this way you can find out whether the music taste of the initially digital counterpart suits your own or not.
In 2022, the most popular song for Tinder profiles was Glass Animals’ “Heat Waves,” according to the dating app’s Year in Review. After Glass Animals, Jack Harlow was the most linked to “First Class”. Harry Styles took third place with “As It Was”.
With some songs it can also be assumed that a subliminal message resonates. Joji’s “Glimpse of Us” might exist for the thought of time together. Or is the person still attached to the ex? Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit” also leaves room for interpretation – maybe someone is expressing their feelings towards the dating app here.
The top 10 also includes songs that have gone viral on social media, such as “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” from the animated film Encanto and “Beggin'” by Måneskin.
In the annual review, Tinder also lists the most popular topics of conversation, films and hobbies. Music tops the list of most popular interests in Germany. That’s why musical date activities were also very popular. In the ranking, singing karaoke is number 2, going to concerts together is number 5 on the list.
