I guess the topic is sexy instead of romantic here at Fierce Sex, I mean Fierce Romance this week. So I started thinking about what makes me feel sexy, and I have to go back to music. I love music, all types. It’s what keeps me going on my power walks. I have it on in the car—loud—and sing along. I listen to it when I clean my house. I even dance to it...all by myself in the living room. For me music can be mood-changing. It cheers me up when I’m feeling crappy. It can definitely enhance a romantic situation, and some songs are just plain sexy!
My first sexy song is “Gett Off” by Prince, who epitomizes sex (even though he’s about 5’ 2” and wears heels). The beat just thumps sex. I...ahem...danced to this song for my husband’s birthday one year. My husband was in bed and I started my dance by kicking open the bedroom door with my black stiletto...
"How can I put this in a way so as not to offend or unnerve?
There's a rumor goin' all around that u ain't been gettin' served
They say that u ain't you-know-what
In baby who knows how long
It's hard 4 me 2 say what's right
When all I wanna do is wrong
Gett off - 23 positions in a 1 night stand
Gett off - I'll only call u after if u say I can
Gett off - let a woman be a woman and a man be a man
Gett off - if u want 2 baby here I am"
My next sexy song is pretty mild compared to Prince, but “Stir It Up” by Bob Marley (later sung by Johnny Nash a little more cheerfully) is more subtle in its sexiness. A reggae beat is always sexy to me, and these lyrics are sly and hot!
“I’ll push the wood,
Then I blaze ya fire;
Then I’ll satisfy your heart’s desire.
Said I stir it every, every minute
All you got to do, girl
Is keep it in...”
I loved Marvin Gaye, and he wrote the book on sexy with “Sexual Healing.” One time I was at a bar and the band was playing this song. The singer was incredibly hot and when he sang this song it was like he was singing it to me since I was flirting with him outrageously (uh, that was when I was in my 20’s and unmarried).
“Come take control, just grab a hold
Of my body and mind soon we'll be making it
Honey, oh we're feeling fine
You're my medicine open up and let me in
Darling, you're so great
I can't wait for you to operate
I can't wait for you to operate
When I get this feeling,
I need Sexual Healing...”
It seems today songs are more out there in your face with the sex. Phrases like Bob Marley’s “I’ll push the wood, then I blaze ya fire” would be way too subtle for what’s out there today. Some of the lyrics of today’s “sexy” songs are yucky, but I have to admit some are pretty hot in a raw, sexy way. One I like is 50 Cent’s (is that even how you SPELL his name?) “Just a Lil' Bit.” The beat of this song is really sensuous too, and the way he kind of growls the last line of these lyrics and then gives a little chuckle at the end—damn! (I've included the "clean" version of the video.)
“Baby, you got me feelin’ right
My momma gone, you can spend the night
I ain’t playin’, I’m tryin’ to XXX tonight
Clothes off, face down, ass up, c’mon”
Whew – we’ve come a long way from when the Ed Sullivan Show made the Rolling Stones sing “Let’s spend ‘some time’ together” instead of “Let’s spend ‘the night’ together,” and the camera stayed firmly focused on Elvis's upper body.
Are there any songs that you find almost too hot to handle?
