It's no secret that getting ready to go on a date can be a nerve-wracking experience, so it's no surprise that people like to blast music to calm their nerves or get themselves hyped for the evening.  But which artists are the ones that music fans most frequently turn to to help them get ready for the big night?  Everyone from Aerosmith and The Rolling Stones , to Daft Punk and Mumford & Sons , according to a new survey.

Match.com surveyed more than 1,100 singles to ask about their date-night music listening habits, and found that while 57 percent of men chose to blast classic rock  as they prepare for their dates, 54 percent of women chose current pop and top hits.  In addition, men and women both enjoy classic rock as background date music, but most agreed that rap, country and heavy metal were mood killers.

As for best specific songs to blast while you're getting ready for a date, here are a few that Match.com came up with, based on the findings in the survey:

Aerosmith – “Sweet Emotion”
Daft Punk -- "Get Lucky"
Mumford & Sons - "I Will Wait"
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – “Can’t Hold Us”
The Rolling Stones -- "Brown Sugar"
Marvin Gaye -- "Sexual Healing"
Justin Timberlake w/Jay-Z -- "Suit and Tie"
Pink -- "Raise Your Glass"
Kelly Clarkson -- "Stronger"
Maroon 5 -- "Love Somebody"
Journey -- "Don't Stop Believin'"
Robin Thicke -- "Blurred Lines"
Taylor Swift -- "Love Story"
Barry White -- "Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe"
Rihanna -- "Where Have You Been"
