What works for you?
Often when I’m writing, I’m talking about what my characters are seeing or doing or listening to. In writing Kiss Lonely Goodbye – the third story in the Part Time Lovers serial – Belle is setting up the hotel room for her first meeting with Sam. She wants to play some fuck-me-silly sexy music and it got me to thinking about what kind of music really turns me on.
I’ve never owned a Donna Summers album, but because I’m how old I am (and you can probably guess it pretty closely), all those songs turn me on. I was young and single and partying, and being in a club and dancing to these songs was as erotic as it was possible to be. Same thing with Roberta Flack’s Feel Like Makin’ Love and Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing. And can’t forget Lady Marmalade. These songs turned whole clubs into dancing sex machines.
One of my favorite hot, sexy songs is The Pointer Sisters’ Slow Hand. These lyrics are all about what works for a woman. I’m listening to it as I write this blog – and I’m thinking about a man with a slow hand and an easy touch. That nice slow, slide into sex is what it’s all about. And once is never enough with a man like you, do that to me one more time… I never thought I’d say this, but this sweet-sounding song by Captain and Tennille is the perfect accompaniment to Slow Hand. I’m willing to bet that the lyrics for both of these songs were written by women.
But then there are the songs — and the singers — that don’t make it onto the Billboard list (which for my taste is filled up with a lot of raunchy songs about what turns men on – not bad, just not for me, and probably not for most women). What about Chet Baker? Not many sexier singers than him. Or Etta James’ At Last? Not a single song by Barry White?
What songs, bands or singers turn you on? What would you play on that first meeting with the sexiest man in the world?
