We've all been there (editor's note- dubstep DJs can pretend), scrambling through our respective iTunes playlists for the perfect hookup soundtrack. God forbid the dead silence is pierced with awkward perfunctory sexual advances--or the clobbering of thighs. So we've compiled a list of sexy tunes that will get you through your "that never happens" two-minute session and the subsequent hour-long cuddle. Having a premade playlist isn't sexually depraved, it's called being prepared.
Top five song picks for your canoodling pleasure:
1. The XX - Chained
What could be sexier than the angel sounds of Romy Madley Croft from the XX? Literally nothing, ever. Throw in the ambient beats that gloriously ebb and flow throughout the song, and you have a recipe for boot-knocking success.
2. Disclosure - Control
Newcomers, Disclosure, have a few sexy time songs in their repertoire, but Control is our favorite. The lyrics bleed sexual tension and provoke listeners to take control--just take it.
3. Flume - Holdin On
For a good time, throw this jam onto your playlist. Lather, rinse and repeat. Part-funk, part-electro, this song has just what you need to spice things up in the Champagne Room.
4. AlunaGeorge - We Are Chosen
We Are Chosen by AlunaGeorge is equal parts sweet and sultry. With their first album entitled "Body Music" in the works, we think the electro duo know exactly what their audience is doing.
5. The Weeknd - The Zone
If you're not already listening to the Weeknd in the bedroom, then you're doing it wrong. Abel Tesfaye aka the Weeknd probably writes songs with his pants off for inspiration. This is one of the sexiest songs on his Trilogy album--please enjoy responsibly.
Now that we've got the tunes covered, all you have to do is show up--and try not to fall asleep. Good luck!
