Great choices TallRapunzel. Do you get them do the 'Full Monty' for you?....'You can leave your hat on'....nice thought!
Barry White's always a winner too.
I have fond memories of Texas - The Hush. Joss Stone is another. Anything a bit raunchy or bluesey would be fine with me. To be honest if I was still taking any notice of the music after the third or fourth track, they must be doing something wrong
I like something a bit moody and evocative. Something that seems to mix with 'the activity' so to speak. Once made a mix tape that had 'When Angels Cry' by Airto on it - Flora Purim on vocals. My girlfriend of the time thought it was heavenly. Paintings and Time Spent In Dreams by Mike Quatro - both excellent. Lots of stuff by Tim Story - the Perfect Flaw, Hum, Reading Those Letters. Ice by the band Spirit - almost spiritual, and sublime....:-)
that would be two albums by tony bennett.they are,the tony bennett/bill evans album and together again:tony bennett and bill evans.theses albums are simply duets of bennett,the italian crooner accompanied only by a piano player,the late but great jazz keyboardist,bill evans.on theses cds,tony sings love ballads that are heart warming and make for great,late nite listening.
I'm no expert, but I have burned a few cd's for this very purpose. One song that I have just fallen in love with is "Secret" by Maroon 5. The song is featured in "The Wedding Date" and it's the song playing for the one and only sex scene. If you haven't heard, definetly give it a chance.
Jack-the-lass writes; 'if I'm listening to the 3-4th track they must be doing something wrong.' Yikes! I too was inflagrante delicto and I THOUGHT the stunning red headed plump babe of my dreams was enjoying herself when she said, 'Could I change the radio station?' (I had a Baroque tape in the cassette player, discs were not invented yet) OK I said, ah, er after a second or so. She got up and tuned to something called 'ELVIRA'. The songs became worse. 'Take this Job and Shove it' and "We were Swingin". I was younger in 1982 and thus was able to maintain tumescence. She gave me her phone# and although she was beautiful,perfect, even had freckles, I never called her.
