Whatever the reason for the music, we can all agree that music is powerful. In this post I want to explore music that kindles the fire of desire, music that makes us think of sex.
Lately I've been on an old school music kick. Yeah, I'm no spring chick, but I'm far from old. My inner jukebox holds music from various eras, even before I took my first breath. Sometimes I'm in the mood for rock classics, some days country, and other days hip hop, old school, or my favorites...80's rock ballads.
Since this post is about music that sets our loins on fire I'll share some of my most favorite songs that make me think of sex.
First, let me start off with a song that brings back memories of a time when sex was taboo to me. Yeah, there was a time. LOL. When this song came out, OMG, scandalous. We had cable and MTV was really kicking ass...when MTV was just music videos for the most part. George Michael came out with, I Want Your Sex, and wow as a young girl I was was shocked, yet intrigued. I remember watching the video and looking over my shoulder, hoping my mom didn't catch me watching it! I mean really, I would have been banned from MTV forever and that would have destroyed me.
"I Want Your Sex"
Many songs were around before George Michael came out with this once provocative song. Any Joe Cocker fans out there? Well, I first became a fan when his song, You Can Leave Your Hat On, was played in the Full Monty. Oh yeah, loved that movie. The song really earned a following during the movie, 9 1/2 Weeks. Remember that movie? Oh, baby.
"You Can Leave Your Hat On"
Wanna slow it down a little more? How about Marvin Gaye? Hello, hello, that was one randy man. Let's Get It On leaves little to the imagination about the man's intentions. If this doesn't work try some Sexual Healing.
"Let's Get It On"
"I Wanna Sex You Up"
"Bump and Grind"
"I'll Make Love To You"
"Justify My Love"
Or maybe his song, Gett Off, is more your style? Prince says there are 23 positions in a one night stand.
"Me So Horny"
Back in the day, yeah, I had one, we danced the electric slide to Clarence Carter. Who remembers Strokin'?
Do you have a favorite sex song? Tell me. I'd like to know :)
