Everybody wants that special moment — when you and your partner are in unison physically, as well as emotionally — to be spectacular. You want the pleasure to be never ending, the closeness to be eternally unifying, and the moment in general, to be — unforgettable.
While making love requires no additional beat than that emanating from the passion-fueled beating of your hearts (sappy but true), it cannot be denied that having the proper background music can really go a long way in setting the mood. Here is a selection of songs to make love to — love grooves that should always be in your “love connection collection.”
— Barry White —
We would be remiss — no, we would be flat out negligent not to include several Barry White songs. Many people have said that the “Sultan of Soul” could get a woman pregnant just with the sound of his baritone voice. That being said, any Barry White song will not only set the mood but practically do the deed for you. Here are three Barry White songs that will always set the right mood and pace for a night of romance.
1. “I’m Gonna Love You Just a Little More Baby” — Barry White
From the opening monologue, to the climatic crescendo of the beat and lyrics, this song is orgasmic on its own. Even if you’re not a smoker, after listening to this song you will feel the urge to have a cigarette.
2. “Never, Never Gonna Give You Up” — Barry White
Full of what many refer to as “classic Barry White pillow talk,” this song sets the mood and also sets a beat that can easily be used to “pace yourself” to a wonderful “finale” of your own.
3. “Love’s Theme” — Barry White and the Love Unlimited Orchestra
Proof that even an instrumental song from Barry White devoid of his signature voice is still powerful enough to melt away the inhibitions.
— And the Rest… —
4. “Love to Love You, Baby” — Donna Summer
This is an enchanting and captivating disco beat accompanied by the sultry voice of Donna Summer that come together to create what many have called, “the most erotic song of the 20th century.
5. “Not a Bad Thing” — Justin Timberlake
A pop ballad with a steady mid-tempo, this song makes for the perfect song to transition from playful cuddling, to tender foreplay, to the main event. One piece of advice, when being used to set the mood for love, select the 11-minute long version.
6. “Birthday Sex” — Jeremih
With a title like that, you know this song had to make the list. The lyrics describe giving your lady some special lovin’ on her special day, but we’re certain that guys will not mind if their partners dedicate this song to them on their day as well. Excellent for those moments that you want some R&B/smooth hip-hop to set the tone.
7. “Unchained Melody” — The Righteous Brothers
Whether you select the version by the Righteous Brothers with vocals, or an instrumental arrangement, “Unchained Melody” is a classic that you must make love to at least once in your life. If the title sounds familiar, but you’re not certain which song it is — just think of Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze, pottery wheel… enough said.
8. “Let’s Get It On” — Marvin Gaye
With Marvin Gaye providing the lead vocals in a soulful and passionate voice, it is another song that can easily and effortlessly transport the both of you to a world of pleasurable bliss. Put this song in the background after a romantic dinner at home, serve yourselves some after-dinner wine or cognac, and mmm… nature will definitely take its course.
9. “Moonlight Serenade” — Glenn Miller
This ballad from the swing era, not only epitomizes a bygone generation, but it is also one of the most genteel tunes to have in the background as you make love. Just don’t linger on the fact that there is a high probability that either your great-grandparents or grandparents also used this song for the exact same purpose as you.
