The forecast is out: baby, it’s cold outside! Austin gets a handful of severe and powerful cold snaps and the first big one of this year here. Take cover, people!
Coincidently I was browsing a Walgreen’s while waiting for prescriptions when I came across a Cosmopolitan. It isn’t a source of serious media for me, but I found it novel. One time I read a sex tip that consisted putting a scrunchie around a man’s scrotum to increase pleasure. Hmm, I’m no scientist, but…that’s weird. And plus that means scrunchies would be seen with comical giddiness, the same way cigars got after Clinton’s sexual escapades were leaked out. Hot.
But in this Cosmo, they had excellent songs to get “hot and steamy” with: in other words, Sexy Baby Makin’ music. And the list was anything but inspiring and all cliché. Marvin Gaye “Sexual Healing”, “Too Close” by Next, and even “If I Were a Boy” by Beyonce, songs that are really typical and honestly satirically sexy. And it got me thinking. With all this cold weather to hit Austin in the next week or two, I’m sure folks will be looking for ways to get warm, and save on their heating bill by creating their own heat. Work it, kids.
But I knew I could make a better Baby Makin’ Mix with one swoop of my iTunes than any of those Cosmo journalism losers. So here it is, Baby Makin’ Music Mix: Winter 2011.
Now, this has an order to it. You can’t just assume all Baby Makin’ music is the same because it isn’t. There is soft and sensual music for cuddling, beat heavy and rhythm extreme songs to, well, set the pace, and rockin’ and aggressive songs that are made to let go of all inhibitions. This is list a 10 ten music, put in order of play: soft to hard (that’s what she said!!). Listen to this music tonight and let me know if it works *wink*. Cold front’s a comin’, shouldn’t you?
- ‘Kissing You (Love Theme From Romeo + Juliet)’ – Des’ree This is the famous song from the popular Baz Luhrmann film ‘Romeo + Juliet’. You want a girl to drop her panties, play this. Grab her, run your fingers through her hair and kiss her to this song and you will be guaranteed to win her over. I promise.
- ‘Falling Out Of Love’ – Aqualung Named after a Jethro Tull (who doesn’t quite conjure up sexy tunes), this British jazz-pop infused singer and songwriter creates a bass heavy and sexy tune. It may be about falling out of love and ending a relationship, but you won’t even hear the lyrics through all that heavy petting.
- ‘Untitled (How Does It Feel)’ – D’Angelo This song was on the list, and it was one of the only songs I agreed with Cosmo with. It is a totally hot song. The video is even hotter. Naked hot and oiled up man singing these lyrics, yes please. (Google it)
- ‘Prototype’ – Outkast This is off the Speakerboxxx/The Love Below album, and this is from The Love Below – or in other words, it’s Andre 3000. And with his sexy and blending falsetto and mid-tempo beat, you can’t help but heat things up. Plus the voice of a woman begging “Come here” in the middle of the song certainly helps.
- ‘Until the End of Time’ – Justin Timberlake The Cosmo list had ‘What Goes Around Comes Around’ as the sexy song from JT, and I could not disagree more. Have they listened to FutureSex/Love Sounds? This is the stand out Baby Makin’ song. Even more so, the song before this song is an intro which builds up the song even more. It is a beautiful song and is sure to get some lovin’ all around.
- Angel – Gavin Friday This is also off the ‘Romeo + Juliet’ Soundtrack, but being a U2 fan, I was already well aware of Gavin Friday. He is Bono’s best friend from childhood and took a completely different route in music from Bono. He got into experimental, avande garde music with his punk band Virgin Prunes and then his own music. Most of his music (and personal persona) is quite sexual and sensual. This is a nice addition to the mix as it also quickens the pace.
- ‘Train’ – Goldfrapp Alison Goldfrapp (lead singer) never disappoints with singing about sex. She seems to love to share with others her love of the booty. And this song only furthers her thoughts. It has a more driving beat, the music ebbs and flows, and something about the synthesizers really makes the song that much more erotic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHnYe5Nj0F0
- ‘Cream’ – Prince The tiniest man in music has to be on this list, because I hear that though he is short in stature, he is, uh, not short on ‘lovin’’. His lyrics and song titles are almost all sexual innuendos and creates a totally sexual and safe environment. I dig it, and this song I find the most sexual when it comes to a rock sound.
- ‘When the Levee Breaks’ – Led Zeppelin This is a fabulous song regardless of its sexual abilities. It is the closer of IV, and creates a strong yet slower beat. John Bonham (who plays the drums like a freggin’ maniac) creates the total tone by making sure the beat is pedal heavy with lower pitched beats. Very hot. And of course Jimmy Page playing those blues slides certainly makes an woman feel sexy, and Robert Plants voice, well, do I need to say anything else?
- Closer – Nine Inch Nails It’s cliché and probably unnecessary, but this song has a magnetic power like most NIN songs. The driving beat, the honest, detailed and imaginative lyrics conjure up this vision of dark, mysterious and intimate sexuality (don’t be fooled by the ‘f— you like an animal’ lyrics meaning this is disconnected or physically painful sex, he is talking about the rawness and instinctual qualities of sex) create a landscape unmatched by many songs. This song also has many emotional attachments to many people. My mom for example thinks this song completely takes the beauty and love from sex, while I’m sure most of us as teens heard this song with a kind of shock and awe, or used this song as a device of definition. Whatever the case, it is a great Baby Makin’ song. Use it.
