My Top Ten List of Music for Romance

By Emly Forrest

If music sets a mood, (and I believe it does), then these are my choices for getting snuggly.

1. Light My Fire by Jose Feliciano (Not the Doors version.)

2. The Romance album by Luis Miguel (I don’t always know what he’s saying, but oo la la is it ever sexy!)

3. Anything by Barry White (C’mon, admit it. You know you love it too!)

4. Various songs by Lou Rawls (One of the sexiest voices in the business.)

5. The What’s New album by Linda Ronstadt and the Nelson Riddle Orchestra (When she hits certain notes, I get the shivers.)

6. Almost anything by Anita Baker.

7. Sade, lots and lots of Sade.

8. The Quiet Nights album by Diana Krall. (Are you sensing a Latin music theme in my list?)

9. The Body Language album by Boney James. (Sexy, sexy sax.)

10. Al Jarreau, especially the Love Songs album.

There certainly are a lot of good songs out there and you've named several I agree with.

You had me at Lou Rawls--
but Average White Band's eponymous album should bne there-- sexy, and makes you dance a little.

Kate Bush, The Sensual World, Prince and The Revolution's first-- the one with Love Me 2 the 9's on it-- Nuff said!

Oh my-- why can't we edit comments on Blogger??? So annoying, when my fingers get tired they stop working properly. Sorry about the missplelling/typo above.
It really makes me feel like an idiot.

I'll have to look into these. When I look for romantic songs everything either seems too obvious or not right.

Crystal Dee said...

Boyz to Men did a song called Sail Away on their second album. I love it and them for romance.

I enjoyed The Last Resort Emly.

Santana is also music for love, to me-- Samba Pa Ti, notably.
