Top 10 Songs for Getting It On
It’s mid-February in Vermont and, chances are, wool socks and fleece are the hot date you look forward to snuggling up to at night. I get it, girl. But perhaps a little sexy music will help you shed the socks in exchange for something that’s bound to get your heart racing and leave you with a big ole Cheshire cat grin. Without further ado, here are my top ten picks for songs to add some boogie to your nights. (Or mornings, late afternoon, 2 a.m., etc)
1. Beast of Burden – The Rolling Stones:
A classic for anyone feeling playful and perhaps a little shy. It’s upbeat, fun and sassy! This also doubles as a great song for a strip-tease. (Take my word for it, the beat will get your hips moving in no time!)
2. Fade into You – Mazzy Star:
When was the last time you treated your partner to a massage? The methodical guitars and dreamy vocals of Hope Sandoval are hypnotizing and will be the perfect accompaniment to your magic hands. Throw in some scented oils and a candle or two and leave the clothes in the closet.
3. Turn Me On – Norah Jones:
Who knew the sweet Ms. Jones could turn it on like this! A short, to the point little ballad that’s perfect to have playing when your partner comes home. Let him/her know just how eager you’ve been for the front door to open.
4. Ball and a Biscuit – The White Stripes:
You want me to do what?!?!?! A lengthier tune with a killer drumbeat perfect for doing something a little naughty and different.
5. Blank White Page – Mumford and Sons:
Make-up sex alert! When one of you has messed up and perhaps someone’s still feeling a little miffed, turn to Mumford to get you through. With verbs like kneeling and swelling, the crescendo of this song might be the thing to help you remember that in spite of your differences, you’ve still got big time love.
6. Do You Mind – The xx:
Take control sex. This song means business. Get on top. Try using no hands and lots of new relationship, against the wall kissing.
7. Madness – Muse:
Leave the lights on. Go ahead, I dare you.
8. A Little Party Never Killed Nobody – Fergie:
Fast and Furious. The kids are watching a show and you don’t know how much time you have before someone gets thirsty or wants to play Thomas the Tank Engine. Just do it.
9. Lust for Life – Iggy Pop:
Do it someplace where you might get caught. A car. A restaurant bathroom. Turn your phone up and your sexy on.
10. Sweet Avenue – Jets to Brazil:
In lieu of a post-romp cigarette. Grab a snuggle while you exhale and listen to lyrics like, “tasting you and rain”, “everything is soft and slow”, and “budding at my fingertips, touching you I start to bloom.” It’s lovely and makes the perfect post-coital cuddle song.
