Here’s the truth: sex can give you the best pleasure of your life and at the same time, make your brain burst because of too much worry and anxiety. You may say alcohol can calm your nerves and eases the tension away. That’s true. What if because of that anxiety, you didn’t notice you had too much to drink to the point where you can’t function properly?
Believe it or not, there is a simpler way to help you get in the mood while making sure all your nerves are in the right place – music.
According to Confucius, “Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.” That’s true.
The power of music has its way, which can take you by the hand, whisper something sweet in your ear, get you in the mood and lead you to the bedroom. However, it’s not just any kind of music.
Here are 13 songs that should be included in your bedroom playlist – and make your night even hotter and sexier than ever.
1. “Let’s Get It On,” By Marvin Gaye
What do you think is the best song that can get you and your man in the mood?
Contemporary songs may leave something on the table, but nothing is on par with Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On.” This 1973 song will surely get the ball rolling with no introduction necessary.
And yes, that sultry beat from start to finish – it’s just plain sexy.
2. “La Femme d’Argent,” By Air
So you and your man are finally in the mood. That’s good news. Now, you need a jam that can make you want to stay in bed all day. In this case, Air’s “La Femme d’Argent” will do the trick.
From its space-pop debut Moon Safari, this tune is smooth, languorous and breathless. Plus, the song is for easy listening, which makes you want to stay sexy in bed with your man all day long.
If you’re not too convinced, then here’s a fact you need to know. No electronic musicians can make a melody as sensual as Air. Go ahead and listen to it.
3. “Justify My Love,” By Madonna
Madonna is sexy, period. And if there is anything sexier than her, that would be her music. From her “Erotica” album, which is everything but erotic, “Justify My Love” is nothing but sexy.
In fact, hearing the song can make your blood rush down there, making you more sensual and in the mood for some action. And yes, Lenny Kravitz was a guest vocalist and it’s hard to accept that there was nothing going in between him and Madonna during that time.
Oh, try watching the music video on YouTube. You will want to have sex with your man after.
4. “I Touch Myself,” By The Divinyls
From the song title itself, you know that there is something sensual hidden in there somewhere. Possibly because of the sex addict people during 1991, this Australian post punk band made a one-hit wonder with their sex song, “I Touch Myself.”
To make the song’s listeners get the message, check out the music video. Don’t be surprised to see Christina Amphlett’s bountiful cleavage jumping up and down and shared for the world to see.
Based on the song title, you’ll know why she did that. Plus, this can be a perfect jam to get your pumped up in bed, too.
5. “Worked Up So Sexual,” By The Faint
Your sex playlist should not be limited to slow jams and songs played on the saxophone. Sometimes, a funky or upbeat music can be your best bet to get you moving.
If you are looking for a song that tells you to bump and grind whomever person is next to you, then you should consider The Faint’s, ‘Worked Up So Sexual.”
For some reason, this electro punk band from Omaha’s second album, also known as the “Blank-Wave Arcade,” has songs that tackle sex. Among the songs featured, “Worked Up So Sexual” is the ultimate song that can get you turned on and dance into a beat with your man.
6. “Ayo Technology,” By 50 Cent And Justin Timberlake
First of all, Justin is hot. Second, whatever Justin does – singing, dancing and even something as simple as smiling, while wearing only his white undershirt – is smoking hot.
Hence, it would come as no surprise when he released a single that can surely make you want to take your clothes off.
Perfect example? “Ayo Technology.” Produced by Timbaland and originally titled as “Ayo Pornography,” this single is about a group of men who went to a strip club and discovered something. It turns out that real-life pole dancers are so much better than watching Internet porn.
Well, just listen to the song to appreciate the positive message it is trying to convey.
7. “S&M,” By Rihanna
If you could describe Rihanna in three words, what would it be? Beautiful? Talented? Or simply oh, so sexy? Chris Brown may have physically and emotionally abused her, but this girl surely knows how to get back up and move on.
“S&M” encourages flirty dance moves, bondage and even sub-dom role-play. Although disguised as a dance track, some countries didn’t like the appreciation for bad behaviour, which explains why 11 countries banned the song.
8. “Sunshine Of Your Love,” By Ella Fitzgerald
Okay, you might wonder why this hoary anthem by a jazz singer should be included in the list. After all, there is something weird about this song and it’s hard to imagine it can actually make you wet down there.
Well, if you listen closely, you will notice that the song’s arrangement has a steamy descending chord progression. At the same time, its stop-start rhythm can make you feel sensual in the most bizarre ways you can imagine.
Oh, and have you seen the 1969 concert in Montreux? Apparently, there is something libidinous in her musical interpretation of the song, which can pretty much tell you that yes, it adds sensuality in your night.
9. “Bump N’ Grind,” By R. Kelly
90’s music is really something. It’s simple, soulful, yet you know the music and lyrics come from the heart.
And if you are looking for that song that best represents your need for some bumping and grinding, well, R. Kelly’s “Bump n’ Grind,” must have been on top of your list.
Listen to it closely. This 1994 chart-topper is full of vocal runs that can get you in the mood for bed. Plus, the music video even demonstrates a steamy slow jam that makes you want to throw off your clothes in bed. Fine, R. Kelly. There is nothing wrong at all with a little bump and grind. You win.
10. “Friendly Skies,” By Missy Elliot And Ginuwine
If you are a 90’s baby, you know that Ginuwine was the King of R&B when it came to getting freaky. He may have one or two songs that’s a sure turn on, but one of his greatest moments in the music industry is his collaboration with the hip-hop queen, Missy Elliot.
From the lyrics itself, you can hear that there is something going on somewhere. “Feel the turbulence and maintain. Please refrain, stay in your seat, until we reach the peak.”
It may talk about friendly skies with Missy as the flight attendant and Ginuwine as the passenger. If you let your imagination run wild, you know that “turbulence” means something.
Read between the lines, ladies.
11. “I Want Your Sex,” By George Michael
Okay, is there anything blunter than this song?
After saying goodbye to his squeaky clean, boy band image, George Michael decided it’s time to show his real self and who he is in real life.
His album “Faith,” which was released in 1987, showed him sniffing his own armpit and opening his funky gem. And yes, the signature growl at its peak, “C – c – c’mon!” suggests that he really wants your sex.
Well, who are you to argue?
12. “I Just Wanna Make Love to You,” By Etta James
Heads up ladies. There is actually a song that can tell your man you’re in it for a steamy, sensual night without even saying anything.
Etta James “At Last” album features songs that define her true spirit, including the single “I Just Wanna Make Love to You.” Upon its release, this song went up on the charts and well, it’s hard not to imagine that she got what she wanted in the bedroom, as well.
13. “No Diggity,” by Blackstreet and Dr. Dre
Maybe you only heard this during the Rift Off scene in Pitch Perfect. Regardless, “No Diggity,” talks about a West Coast rapper who is obsessed with his New Yorker girlfriend.
It turns out that he can’t stop fantasizing about his girl and likes how she “works it” until he “bag it up.”
And with Dr. Dre’s “it’s going down” at the start of the song, well, you know what’s about to happen.
So, is your bedroom playlist-ready?
