#3 - We Bringing Sexy Back [Feb. 14th, 2007|10:53 pm]
Sugar Virus
[Current Mood |okayokay]
[Current Music |Omarion - Ice Box]

Well Valentine's Day is upon us, and to be completely blunt, I'm NOT a big fan of this Hallmark-churned holiday. Strange since no holiday honors the color pink more. I didn't want to focus this month's rotation around just love songs, since not everyone can relate to them. I certainly can't! But sexy is a universal theme. I went through my entire CD collection, my entire mp3 playlist (no joke!) to choose my top 20 picks for sexiest songs. These are the best of best. I also plucked a few love songs to share.

© © © © © *.~*HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!*~.* © © © © ©


France
Télépopmusik – Breathe
  Title’s appropriate as this is a very airy song with a slight dance floor vibe. I find it relaxing and hypnotic, and therefore sexy.

Denmark
DJ Encore feat Engelina – Out There
  You can’t tell me this song isn’t SUPER sexy. This is a dreamy, hip song, with a starry vibe, one of those slow dance floor songs where you want things to move faster at first but then realize it’s better slow.

Germany
Enigma - Sadeness
  This song is liquidy sex! The title should be changed to Sexiness.

Canada
Mythos – November
  I hate to bring up this imagery, but it totally makes me think of being whisked off to a palace in Saudi Arabia and just engaging in… yeah, so anyways! Dreamy music and very sexy!

Conjure One – Sleep
  I think the lyrics say it all. “Sleep, with me, tonight…” It’s a luscious song though, breathy, and super astrosexy. Conjure One has a celestial yet earthy sound. It’s a side project of one of the members of Delerium, so if you like Delerium, you’ll like Conjure One.

UK
FC Kahuna - Hayling
  Hypnotizing.

Massive Attack - Teardrop
  This tender track features trippy, R & B beats but with a very hindu, ancient sounding vibe. It’s quiet sexy.

Sarah Brightman – Deliver Me
  This song is sexy in it’s own way, makes me think of water droplets falling into a pool. I like the lyrics. I think it’s something we can all relate to in a sense.

Seal – Kiss From a Rose
  Really now, who doesn’t love this totally sexy song? I like the Shakespearean, and various instrumentals used in the track. It was released over 10 years ago, but it still has a strong uniqueness that sets it apart from other love themes.


Japan
Angela Aki – Kiss From a Rose
  I’ve got it in Japanese too! This cover doesn’t feature all the original instrumentals, instead it just relies on the piano and Angela Aki’s gorgeous vocals. It also is a bit more up-tempo than the original. Isn't the piano accompaniment beautiful? If anyone knows where I can get sheet music, please let me know!!

mink – One Suitcase
  This is a very sparkly, sensual song, and even the lyrics coincide, “will there be a morning after? Should I stay or should I go?” Mink stands for Made in Korea. She’s a Korean singer, but her music is Japanese.

mink – One Suitcase (English ver)
  You can never have enough versions of this gorgeous song!

Tommy february6 – Is This Feeling Love
  This is very Tommy style, 80s-inspired, synthesized pop but this song in particular has a mystical, dreamy quality to it that really gives off the feeling of “being young and in love.”

Utada Hikaru – This is Love
  This IS love!!!

USA
ComradeF – Orbital
  This song makes me think of a love that’s just blossoming, and finally being overtaken by it. It starts off curiously mellow and gradually picks up until it’s just luminiscent. Check out more from ComradeF here.

Nine Inch Nails – The Great Below
  Why is this song so sexy? Could it be Trent Reznor’s haunting vocals? Could it be the 2:06 (or for songs that count backwards – 3:10) mark? You decide. All I know is, it’s stirringly sexy.

DC Talk – Consume Me
  For anyone who follows contemporary Christian music, you’ll know who these guys are. For those who don’t, they’re a band that was really huge back in the late 90s. They’ve since split up into solo projects. Consume Me is one of their more potent, dreamy, stirring tracks. Their voices meld very well together.

Backstreet Boys – Incomplete
  I used to listen to BSB back in the day, the “Quit Playin Games With My Heart” and “Larger Than Life” days, but I was surprised when I heard this track from them. It’s so evocative of those days but totally surpasses them. It’s a really tender song, but powerful.

Amy Grant – That’s What Love Is For
  The strength of this song is in the lyrics. Amy Grant was huge in the early 90s, and this is one of the songs she released on her most successful album, Heart in Motion, in 1991.

And now… The MUST DOWNLOAD of the list!!!
Delerium – Underwater
  Why oh WHY is this song sooooo sexy? Seriously, this song takes the cake for sexiness. It’s that type of song where you and your partner get closer on the dance floor, that makes you feel like you’re soaring and your heart is fluttering. It just RADIATES with sexual energy!

Sexy PVs for grabs!
  • Viewer discretion advised!


    Koda Kumi – Ima Sugu Hoshii
    If I wanted to, I could’ve just uploaded ALL of Koda Kumi’s PVs and that would fulfill the sexy quota and then some. But this one really is the stand out sex appeal PV from her (Juicy and Shake It come close, but they’re more dance-themed). In this PV Koda sits on her dark throne wearing a crazy headdress and watches guys attempt to impress her. It’s really sultry but also funny! Watch for Koda’s expressions!


    Maki Goto – SOME BOYS TOUCH!
    This video affirms that Morning Musume is way behind her, somewhere in that cute, bubbly, colorful past. This PV is overtly sexual in nature, which features Maki Goto in a myriad of suggestive poses! She’s accompanied by two male dancers who must obviously be REALLY comfortable with their bodies!


    Miyavi – Senor Senora Senorita
    Ok, hands down, Miyavi is totally sexy. Am I right? I am. And given that Miyavi is totally sexy, it’s only appropriate that I upload his sexiest PV. It’s not sexy in the way that he’s shirtless and there’s tons of pouring water and what not, hell no. No, it’s all about the seductive expressions and the way he carries himself. Lest we not forget that CONFIDENCE is sexy!!

    Comments not required, but please leave me with some reccomendations of your own! What strikes you as a sexy song? Also, some of these selections are among my all-time favorite songs. So I'm especially interested in knowing what you thought of this month's rotation!! Please leave a comment if you enjoyed something!

    I took a lot of the songs, but was kind of disappointed to find that a lot of them were centered around English (not all, but a lot). Personally, I find pretty much any other Germanic language incredibly sexy. Especially French.

    I'd love to hear some more French music. I'd also like to hear some Indian/Pakistani music. There's just something about those languages.

    Thank you so much for the feedback! I chose almost all the songs based on sound and lyrics alone, but, I simply adore hindi / pakistani music so expect that to appear more (I think I may have a rotation in the future that just focuses on that type of music) but I don't have much french music unfortunatley. Any reccomendations?

    Just to let you know, French is not a Germanic language. :P

    If you want male vocals in French I would recommend MC Solaar, and for female singing a couple names to check out are Anggun and Émilie Simon.

    Thanks so much! I'm coming back for the songs and the Miyavi PV (I'm at school)

    One sexy song that I can think of is Seduction by Silver Ash.

    Downloaded all the tracks from Canada, Massive Attack, and the DJ Encore song. Thanks for sharing all of these!

    If you like Delerium I would also recommend Balligomingo, Emma Shapplin, and maybe some stuff from Dead Can Dance ...

    Thank you for sharing! :)
    I took Mink and will probably take some others too as this is a v. interesting selection! - I really liked 'One suitcase' - I've never heard anything by Mink before and she's got such a lovely voice.
    Also I thought the Tommy Feb. song is a really good choice to include here - that song is one of my favourites.
    (have added to friends - I really like that there is is such a mix of different music here ^_^)

    I updated the link to the German song so it should work now! Ironically the actual singing / speaking parts in the song are in French! I ADORE Russian music (and I'd love more! -- any reccomendations?!) from what I've heard of it. TATU just so happens to be my second all-time favorite music artist!! And I LOVE the duo Nichya!

    I think Dir En Grey's [KR]cube is pretty sexy.. but there is also violence and death in it.. but that kinda just makes it sexier in that dangerous kinda way for me. ^^

    gonna check out the delerium song (because they are amazing and i can't believe i haven't heard that song yet.) Ah and man just about ANY Portishead songs are sexy, and some SneakerPimps "spin spin sugar" also makes me happy in the pants. okay sorry.. shutting up now hahaha. XD
