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?

  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."

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
