Hi everyone, thought I'd try to compile a playlist of a few of the songs that always inspire me when I'm trying to write sex scenes -- in the hopes that some of you will also offer up some of your favourites! Links are to YouTube. Apologies if there's already a thread for this somewhere, this seemed like a good area to post vids in....

Street Spirit -- Radiohead
Always my number one sex song. There's something about that bassline combined with Thom Yorke's voice that just gets me trance-like, right in the mood.
Listen Street Spirit

505 -- Arctic Monkeys
Great sexy lyrics, lovely little Alex Turner, and his VOICE. Inspiring.
Listen 505

Weapon -- Matthew Goode
There's an edge of danger in this song that *gets* me low and deep.
Listen Weapon

Glory Box -- Portishead
Pretty much any Portishead song would be appropriate here, except maybe The Rip, which is so brilliant it just empties any thought whatsoever from me (or makes me want to write Terminator 2 fanfiction)!
Listen Glory Box

Candy -- Paolo Nutini
I enjoy the wavery, wistful, neediness of this song. It makes me want to be generous, and give him some candy, even though he doesn't deserve it.
Listen Candy

I've Got Your Number -- Elbow
Mmmm Guy Garvey's voice. Elbow are usually about love for me; here it's all pure sex.
Listen I've Got Your Number

I Spy -- Pulp
Okay, don't laugh, but Jarvis Cocker IS sex. It's just WRONG that he is, but it's true. I laughed my ass off when I first heard this song, but then it started to work for me. It's all about Jarvis; he's like a porn mesmerist (or something!) -- he'll get you writing all sorts of nasty things if you let him.
Listen I Spy

The Heart's Filthy Lesson -- David Bowie.
Bowie.
Listen The Heart's Filthy Lesson

SexyBack -- Corinne Bailey Rae
Love this cover, think it's so much more fun and sexier than the original in this jazzy form.
Listen SexyBack

Uno -- Muse
The lyrics and the video always make me want to write very adolescent people being mean and selfish in bed. Also noteworthy is Matthew Bellamy looking very young and edible.
Listen Uno

Thanks, Nicola :D

I saw from another thread that we have quite similar British music tastes!

What a great idea Jasper Thanks I love Glory Box. I never listen to music when I write sex scenes as I like writing them in the early hours in the morning when it's nice and dark outside and it's peacefull, I just get lost in my own imagination.

Oh totally -- have you heard Leona Lewis's Live Lounge cover of Snow Patrol's Run? It's amazing and so much more emotional than the original.

Agree re: the Candy video -- it's just *sexy* and the colours are so beautiful.

When I'm feeling like that I put on Michael Nyman's "The Piano" soundtrack on repeat. It makes a really good sonic backdrop to intense, tumultuous writing.

Good idea for a thread, Jasper. I don't use music when I write, either, but I will say I like the slow, sultry Isaac Hayes' "Do Your Thing" to develop a mood.
