Songs To Set The Mood

Hey, it’s Joshua

I wanted to keep this blog post nice and simple…

This is going to be a collection of some of the sexiest songs we can think of.

Please feel free to add more in the comments… I really want this list to get as long as possible, so we can all have a killer playlist ready when it’s time to get a bit more intimate.

These songs are all great to listen to on their own, but when things are getting heated they are amazing for setting the mood.

Okay, here’s a few of my personal favorites (in no particular order):

Jazz (We’ve Got) – Tribe Called Quest

Brand New Angel – Gov’t Mule

Sympathy For The Devil – Guns ‘N Roses version

Little Wonder – David Bowie

Since I’ve Been Loving You – Led Zeppelin (live version)

Boom Boom – Leslie West

The Man Who Sold The World – Nirvana

Big Poppa – Notorious B.I.G.

Where The River Goes – Stone Temple Pilots

Riders On The Storm – The Doors

Fall To Pieces – Velvet Revolver

Anything – Allman Brothers

Rooster – Alice In Chains

Closer –  Nine Inch Nails

I could go on naming a million more, but I wanted to give you a chance to tell me some of your favorites…

Also, if you haven’t heard some of these yet, you should check them out on iTunes or Amazon. Maybe you’ll find something you really like!

Okay, now it’s your turn to let me know some of your favorites,

Joshua Rose

    I’d like to suggest three of my favorites: Roberta Flack “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,”
    “Unchained Melody” by Righteous Bros. and “You’ll Never Walk Alone (Many artists; I like Mormon Tabernacle Choir.)
