People like Barry White and Marvin Gaye wrote songs for seduction. Music to set the mood for when you happen upon taking someone to bed. You and a lover between the sheets getting it on. It’s not about being in love, it’s about being in the moment of seduction. Louche, loose, a tangled mess of skin on skin, quelling all desire. Cent brings you a playlist encapsulating this feeling. Read more about it in A Boudoir Mood.
Je T’aime Moi Non Plus – Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg. Known as the sexy French song, this hit really captures the desire between two lovers as they become intimate with each other. A staple piece for a boudoir playlist.
I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby- Barry White. The spring of 1973 saw the release of this song. A low bass coupled with White’s baritone voice makes this a perfect addition to the boudoir mood soundtrack.
Love to Love You Baby- Donna Summer. With lyrics like “I love to love you, baby,” it’s easy to see why this song must be included.
Breaking Point- Etta James. Known to be similar to “I Want Your Sex” by George Michael, Etta James holds nothing back about her intentions in the above song. “And I just wanna make love to you” is explicitly stated right off the bat.
George Michael- I Want Your Sex. The provocative 1987 song peaked as a number two track in America, number three in the UK, and was on the top five list for many other countries.
Marvin Gaye- Let’s Get It On. Also the title of his thirteenth album, “Lets Get It On” is a classic Marvin Gaye song. The explicit nature of the content of this song gave Gaye his sex-symbol status in the late 1900s.
Use Me- Bill Withers. The deep bass of Withers and knowledgeable lyric about sex is to be noted in this song. What was once a censored tune for its promiscuity is now a celebrated hit and an integral component of the boudoir playlist.
Love Hangover- Diana Ross. This piece by Ross is more focused on the passion and love component of the boudoir. The intimacy that accompanies the acts.
Pony- Ginuwine. If you’ve seen Magic Mike, you know this song well. Channing Tatum’s dance to this beat is hard to forget. A must-add for this playlist.
Criminal- Fiona Apple. Featured on Apple’s debut album, this track highlights how a woman uses her sexuality to get things she wants. Very louche indeed.
This list of tunes is definitely one worth giving a listen to when you’re feeling in the boudoir mood. It embraces the art of seduction and all the passion that comes with it.
