let's talk about sex, bb


one of the topics on Twitter got me thinking yesterday. best sex songs? HMM.

now I've not had a lot (or any) sex, but when I imagine it, with Swedish supermodels, this is what's usually going on in the background:


Jeff Buckley!

"Grace"

I'm not allowed to embed videos, but between that voice and those looks. holy shit! Jeff Buckley will always give me a (metaphorical) erection.

anything off the "Grace" album should get you into the mood. esp. if your significant other is a laydee. guys! listen up!


Broken Social Scene



I would say either this or "Swimmers." shit, anything by BSS really. have you heard their cover of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart?"

IT'S TIME THAT WE GREW OLD AND DID SOME SHIT

Feist!


mostly, just this song, her cover of the Bee Gees' "Inside and Out":



Gwen Stefani in this video:


"4 in the Morning"

Phoenix (and Air, sometimes)

"If I Ever Feel Better"

Annie



who, let's face it, I want to marry.

The White Stripes



and basically anything French:

Serge G + Jane B and their orgasm song



their daughter's, "The Operation:"


Camille




okay....maybe I'm too easy.

SO WHAT PUTS YOU IN THE MOOD, READERS?

p.s. apologies to Al! I was working on this before I left for MEADVILLE/GOD'S VAGINA this morning and my computer crashed.

  1. whoa great post Britt!!!!!
    And no worries.

    My music for the mood is Labyrinth's "Kathryn."
    Shakira Spanish lyrics versions, "Pepper" from Butthole Surfers, Journey, and most MacDonald's jingles.
    "You can't more for your money because MacDonald's makes it RIGHT!!" I love it.

  4. Love this post!

    MGMT's "Electric Feel." Humping (the air, the wall, another person, a small dog) is imminent.
    "Backstroke" by The Evening Episode. It's like an aural orgasm. Pun very much intended.
    Also, TV On The Radio's "Staring At The Sun" and "Wolf Like Me."

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
