Norah Jones – “Turn Me On”
Norah Jones has one of the most beautiful, delicate voices I’ve ever heard. There is a sense of calmness that overcomes your body as you listen to her hit her stride in this song. The song is a perfect way to embark upon your evening with lyrics like, “Like a flower waiting to bloom / Like a light bulb in a dark room / I’m just sitting here waiting for you / To come on home and turn me on.”
The lyrics speak for themselves. You get back home, bloom that flower and flip that light switch. Don’t make her wait. Turn her on.
Whitney Houston – “Saving All My Love for You”
Whitney Houston was known for her strong voice and love ballads. “Saving All My Love for You” is a classic tune that you need to put on your “boogie-down” playlist. It’s a break from the aggressive sexual music above. With a long workday in the way of getting to your loved on, this song will speak volumes – letting your boo know that you are saving all your love for her. Just don’t let it build up.
Miguel – “Adorn”
Do I need to explain why this song is on the playlist? I shouldn’t, but I will anyway. Miguel uses his voice in this hit song to really speak to women. He speaks about how much he adores his woman and how he respects her.
He tugs on the heart strings when he says, “These lips can’t wait to taste your skin / Baby, no, no / And these eyes, yeah, can’t wait to see your grin, ooh ooh baby / Just let my love / Just let my love adorn you / Please baby, yeah,” in a high-pitched falsetto voice.
Include this song and you will have your lover dressing down in no time.
Trey Songz – “Neighbors Know My Name”
A sex playlist would be nothing without a little Trey Songz on it. This song screams everything related to sex and more.
Throughout the song, Songz lets you know that his neighbors know his name with lyrics like: “Take this pillow right here (grab this) / And I know you’re so excited, if you bite it they won’t hear / And you know just what we capable of, when we makin’ love / So the music gone be loud, you gone scream and shout / Girl your body’s a problem, they call me the problem solver.”
Do I need to say anything else? Johnny in 5C just became your loudest neighbor in the Fargo quad.
Drake – “Own It”
Drake is pretty straightforward when it comes to writing songs about making love. On his recent album Nothing Was the Same, almost every song is about women.
But the one that stands out is definitely “Own It.” It has the perfect balance of drums and special effects to set the mood right. The lyrics are also perfect for what might happen to you later in the evening.
“You’re still the one that I adore / Ain’t much out there to have feelings for / Guess whose it is? Guess whose it is? / Guess whose it is? Guess whose it is? / Yours.”
By the end of the night you will own it.
Frank Ocean – “Thinkin Bout You”
Frank Ocean does a nice job mixing together an oceanic sound with a light snare drum that echoes sex.
He wins people over with his lyrics and falsetto voice, though. “A tornado flew around my room before you came,” he sings. “Excuse the mess it made, it usually doesn’t rain.”
After playing this song, your room will look like a tornado flew through it.
Marvin Gaye – “Sexual Healing”
We started the playlist with Marvin Gaye and we’re going to end it with him. This is one of the first songs you think of when you think of sex. Plus, it has a catchy lyrics-music combination to it. “I’m hot just like an oven” is a perfect opening to the song. Focus on making your sweet moves and let Gaye do the talking. Who knows? Maybe things will get hot like an oven. Either that or you will walk home cold just like a refrigerator.
