Seduction music…. Getting in the mood

Observations of a Middle-Aged Dragon with a Tattoo: 

The Art of ….Getting in the mood

A sexified ambience is the goal. A balance set somewhere between relaxed but not sleazy. Sade is a tried and true classic: who can forget Smooth Operatorbut how about a bit of The Sweetest Taboo You’ve probably heard Joan Armatrading’s, Love and Affection, of course you have! You’d have to have been living in a cave not to know it… This time with a little dedication…… Once more with the feeling… But a real, often forgotten gem of Joan’s, is Willow. It can lift the night.

Setting the scene, more than candles and champagne. Music, the right music will really heat up the night.


The art of the rest: Music to elevate the night from just bonking; to the art of elegant love-making.

Anything George Michael 
produced in his romantic phase is a great start or of course Mr Love-juices himself Barry White
, but I find big Bazza gets a little monotonous. Prince‘s Cream (on the video link start two minutes in to get the real cream vibe) orKylie Minogue’s Slow are the pinnacle of sophisticated musical seduction. A newcomer and not too well-known is a very smooth and creamy Isobel Campbell a wonderful Scottish singer-songwriter- and her duet with Mr Dripping Molasses voice(thick, dark and smooth), Mark LaneganCome on Over (turn me on)
. For those Tex Perkins fans you’ll love Mark. A very similar timbre of hot sexiness in his vocals; or should I say, his bewitching vocals.

Got carried away there so…. Back to elegant love-making.

Lets face it, after the first two bars of the song or you may make it through the intro, nonetheless if the ‘seduction songs’ have worked and love-making song is doing its ‘charming thing’… you won’t be listening anyway. You should be lost in a world of love, intimacy and intense sharing.
