[Life’s Little Lists]: In the Mood Music

This post is about sex. Teehee

Cool. Now that that’s over with…

Music can do a lot to a person and one of the things it does to me is make other people, situations and heck, even myself much sexier in its presence. Something about having that perfect song at that perfect time to get you where you need to be at a given moment, especially when those moments are behind closed doors with someone you fancy.

SoulPancake has encouraged me to share a brief list of songs I deem to be some of the “sexiest ever” so I do hope you enjoy!

In no particular order:

The Kills: U R A Fever
Ever since being turned on to Alison Mosshart and the Kills I’ve found something incredibly sexual about their style: noise rock-influenced, bluesy, sort of tastes like cigarettes but in a way I can tolerate. I can’t remember which movie but I’m confident this was also used in a sex scene in some movie we saw once.

Lana Del Rey: Off to the Races
I’m not a huge fan of Lana but this song was the first thing I ever heard from her and I’ve been hooked. I’ve often said Lana’s voice is pure sex and after hearing this song most people agree.

Amy Winehouse: You Know I’m No Good
Everyone knows by now by the tattoo on my left forearm that I adore Amy Winehouse more than any pop singer I’ve ever heard in my life. Amy had a rough life but when she was doing okay and was taking care of herself she was incredibly sexy. While this song speaks of her repeatedly cheating on her man, her voice says “I promise I won’t do it again” and I believe her every time.

Jane’s Addiction: Ted, Just Admit It
I first heard this song on the Natural Born Killers soundtrack; a slightly altered version from the original album version but the creeping bass line and Dave’s lingering, screeching feedback throughout followed by the fast-paced explosion at the end makes one thing of truly violent sex with a fire involved.

The Dead Weather: Hang You From the Heavens
Well, here’s Alison Mosshart again. Girl’s got a thing for being sexy in the filthiest, most rock’n’roll way possible. Her sensual lyrics here are crooned roughly over a highly distorted bass line and Jack White’s simple, yet powerful drum kit abuse.
