Valentine’s Top Ten Sexy Songs
Some of these songs could be used for garter or bouquet toss, some could be used later in the evening for some bump’n’grind session, and some should probably stay put away for much later in the evening. For Valentine’s Day, these are some of the best sexy songs I could think of.
Damn I wish I was your lover – Sophie B Hawkins
Sophie B Hawkin’s great delivery of her song always struck me as extremely sensual. The two chord keyboard into and guitar break at 3:12 mark are very sexy. Funny story though, I always misheard the lyrics as “Damn, if I was your lover / I’d f— you till the daylight comes / make sure you were smiling and warm” which is much dirtier than the actual lyrics “I’d rock till the daylight comes / Make sure you were smiling and warm.”
Genie In A Bottle – Christina Aguilera
There is a not so subtle double entendre about this song. “I’m genie in A bottle Baby / Gotta rub me the right way honey.” I’m sure a lot of people were infatuated with Xtina after this songs was released despite the fact that she was just 18 when the song was released. There was a quite a bit of controversy about the content of the song, the seductive “adult” tone with which she sings (this tone kind of become her claim to fame, particularly when it came time for Dirrty) combined with the sultry arrangement of the music, but these are all the reasons, its on this list. FTR, I debated including Dirrty on this list also but decided against it so because I didn’t want two songs by the same artist. Did I make the wrong decision?
Hold On We’re Going Home – Drake
I was at a wedding, and someone came up a requested that I play a song that would be great to have sex to, those were not the words she used, She actually said, “I want to hear a song you could f— to.” We sorted through my collection of lustful songs before she finally decided on this one. And that is the sole reason this song appears here.
Cream – Prince
In the 90s, there were a lot of songs that were very sexual nature. From Madonna (she’ll come up later) to this guy, the early to mid 90s seemed to be a time of sexual awaking. I’m not sure why this was, but thinking back, there were a lot of songs about overt sexuality. Cream is on the list because: a) it's awesome, and b) it is extremely sexual. D'uh.
Take Me to Church – Hozier
This song is relatively new to the list. The metaphors in song are not subtle, they speak to how one should worship one’s lover, comparing one’s lover to church. But more than that, it’s about wanting someone despite knowing that they might not be the best thing for you. The moment I heard this song, I loved it for it’s use of symbolism as a change from the overtly sexual songs that artists are prone to release.
Baby Got Back – Sir Mix-A-Lot
Here is an example of one of those overtly sexual songs, Baby Got Back is clearly about a guy sexualizing virtually every woman around him, judging them simply by their ample behinds. This is a wedding classic, I don’t think I’ve been a wedding in 15 years that this was not requested. If it was not requested or played, it is certainly the exception not the norm. There’s always someone (actually quite a few people) who will dance to this classic.
Hands to Myself – Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez has really worked hard to shed her good girl image. This one does a great job of breaking that persona, right from the opening notes to the first line. Selena is a young sex-kitten and she knows it. She’s super attractive and sings in such a sultry voice, it’s hard to not believe she desperately wants to be next to whomever the song is directed at.
Justify My Love – Madonna
OH THE CONTROVERSY! This song came out around the same time that she released her SEX book. This is again part of the 90s when there were a lot of songs that were meant to shock in their sexuality. There was a lot of talk about the uncut version of this video, I was even aware of it when I was 12. Madonna was very good pushing the boundaries of sex in her music, the uncut version of the video and the song bordered on perversion designed to bring attention to the album and subsequent tour. She is great at marketing herself and she is the main influence for artists like Lady Gaga who in my opinion has always tried too hard to push those same boundaries but failed.
I Don’t Wanna Live Forever – ZAYN & Taylor Swift
This song is from the 50 Shades Darker soundtrack, and is on this list only because of the sexuality and subject matter of the movei lends itself to this particular blog post. Taylor Swift is not (to me any way) a sexual minx. She’s pretty but it’s just not the way I see her.
