i wrote a song… in my mind

sports vs. music

with 7 comments

me and my friends were discussing the other day which would be better to have: musical ability or athletic ability.  more specifically we were talking about which would be more helpful in getting a lady friend.  i, as a musician, argued that athletic ability would be the better skill to have in finding a girlfriend as it has a two-fold benefit.  first of all, not only are you awesome at a sport(s), but you’re probably more healthier and fit than a musician.  and let’s face it, a girl don’t want no out of shape musician.  i mean, if they do he’s gotta be like, amazing.

as the opposite side of this, my friend argued that musical ability was more preferable.  his argument was that you can’t play sports all the time.  and even then, a girl isn’t going to want to watch guys play sports.  obviously my friend was speaking as an athlete who is pretty much fantastically awesome at any sport he plays.

i think the common theme in both of these scenarios is that whoever the guy is, i think physical attractiveness is allowed to slide a little if exceptional skills are present.  in the same way, i feel like musical ability or athletic ability is allowed to slide if the physical attractiveness is present.  i mean, think ok looking musician vs. good looking tone deaf guy.  or, ok looking great soccer player vs. good looking out of shape guy.  does that even exist?  i think i just made that up.  i’m pretty sure that’s an oxymoron, but maybe there are some out of shape really good looking people out there.

i’m interested to read what the ladies think about this.  what do you think?  musical ability or athletic ability.  and would you rather go for a talented not-so-attractive guy or a not-so-talented attractive guy?

  3. what are you kidding…if i was a girl, good looking tone deaf guy over ok looking great singer. assuming spirituality and personality are the same. but i think at the end of the day, humor is the best way to a girls heart. heh…heh…
    but if i had to choose. music over sports. these days, i feel like as long as the guy doesn’t suck at the sport…it’s fine, however…a good voice, or skills on an instrument is very sexy, and will melt a girl’s heart.

  6. Musical talent over athletic ability any and every day.

    Must remember to add this to list of Basement Dad side effects. Though, is it a pro or a con?

  7. A guy with musical talent is a weak one for me. Mainly cuz I personally like being able to jam and hang out together playing songs and singing… but that’s just me. I’d rather have musician over athlete.
