On many occasions, we look for a song that is perfectly in tune with intimacy, a song that balances sensuality and strength, and allows us to carry a perfect rhythm, a song whose melody creates a bubble, so you are free from distraction and you can transform an already pleasurable and magical moment into something unforgettable.
What are the special elements that make up this perfect song? How do we know when we’ve found the perfect tune for that night? It is all up to taste, it can have a touch of soul, a bit of dub, a pinch of pop, or even a dose of hip-hop and jazz, and of course, a halo of experimental music. What should the rhythm be like? Without a doubt, it has to be slow and dotted with samplers and different sound effects.
All of these special components gave way to the creation of the Trip-Hop genre in the mid nineteen nineties, famous for its down beats. It evokes a rhythm that incites constant caresses and simply by listening to it, our minds gravitate to heady and erotic images. We picture couples embracing each other and the soft grazing of naked bodies. We see hands moving down the body and only the street lights pouring from the window illuminate the sheen of sweat of the other. Curves are explored in tandem with the music.
We witness everything and nothing, because our minds play games with us and show us our deepest desires and perversions. It is in the slow climb to ecstasy where our heart beat quickens and for a moment, we abandon our connection to reality.
We present to you 10 erotic songs that will give you a perfect sensual rhythm in moments of intense intimacy.
“Lovage” – Sex (I’m A)
Just by listening to the combination of voices and moans we discover that sounds can excite us even more than any conceivable image. We feel the pinnacle of ecstasy is at the tip of our fingers, and the lyrics reflect the unrestrained passion,”Feel the fire, feel my love inside you so bright.”
“I’m into You” – Chet Faker
Chet Faker has become an important new talent in the music scene. As a specialized musician and DJ in trip-hop and electronic music, he has been described as a “man capable of mixing daunting beauty with subtlety.” All his songs are geared to moments of intimacy, but the one that stands above the rest is “I’m into you,” which describes the how someone feels towards the sensuality of their partner. “And your eyes, are saying more than we can talk and warmer than our bedroom sport, and your thighs, are kisses from the outside, girl that’s all I need”.
“Teardrop” – Massive Attack
There are sensual songs, and then there is Massive Attack. This particular track has an unparalleled mixture of intensity and tranquility. Its rhythm is hypnotic and throbbing. This song is more than erotic; it is liberating in how it encourages you to let go and give it your all.“Shakes me, makes me lighter, fearless on my breath”.
“Glory Box” – Portishead
Are you ready for a sensual dance and to strip naked without any fear or hesitation? If you need an extra nudge, this song by Portishead will help you out. With each note, you will be inspired to remove your clothing and see them rustling to your knees, until they reach the floor.
“Wash My Soul” – Tricky
Normally Tricky’s songs are more violent and abrupt but “Wash my soul” can become the perfect companion in bed. You will feel compelled to follow your instincts as you listen to the lyrics, “Lick it, wet it, you like it, you let it.” You will be in a sensual moment suspended in time.
“Mend” – Elsiane
Elsiane is characterized for her rich voice that is accompanied by a calm soothing percussion. With “Mend” you will feel temperature rise, so your body will heat up in anticipation.
“Wise enough” –Lamb
Lamb is an English electronic music duo from Manchester consisting of Andy Barlow and Louise Rhodes. Their music is influenced by trip-hop, drum and bass, and jazz. “Gorecki” and “Gabriel” are their more famous singles, but “Wise enough” is perfect for an intense night. They split for some time, and finally in 2009 they reunited and participated in The Big Chill festival, and from that point forward their music has become more intense.
“Gimme Your Love” – Morcheeba
One of the most sensual voices in the music world is the vocalist of Morcheeba. Skye Edwards left the band in 2003, after which the rest of the members used a number of singers before she rejoined in 2009. The song says it all, “Close the door, turn the light off, switch your mind off, make it right for me.”
“Is It Over?” – Thievery Corporation
It may be that the song speaks of the end of relationship, but it also talks about seduction. In the music video, a wizard seduces a girl, and as she is immersed in the show of seduction, she forgets her partner is by her side. Shana Halligan’s voice is a sensual gift perfect for the most erotic moments.
“Love You Bring” – Prefuse 73
Do we need sensual lyrics to make us burn? Prefuse 73’s single shows us that only the best rhythm is needed to get us ready for action. Words are lost in the movements of the body and the heartbeats.
