Any mix to get ya’ll in the mood needs to ebb and flow. Start off relaxed, fun, take it up a few notches and then bring it on down.
Bob Dylan – I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight
Kick things off with one of the few people who can turn me on with a harmonica.
Queens of the Stone Age – Make It Wit Chu
The softer side of Josh Homme.
Steve Westfield – I’ll Take Your Clothes Off
To the point and sang simply over acoustic guitar and flute.
Janet Jackson – Any Time Any Place
Apparently, Janet has no hang ups about where to, uh, get it on. Let this song inspire you. . . just please no dirty mattress on a Park Slope sidewalk. It’s been done: http://gawker.com/news/sex/brazen-brooklyn-boffers-too-blotto-to-boink-122475.php
Marvin Gaye – Let’s Get It On
This classic needs no explaination.
INXS – Not Enough Time
I can’t help myself. Michael Hutchence’s voice oozes the sex.
“Not enough time for every kiss/ And every touch and all the nights.”
Giustino Petrone – Turn Me On
Well, I sing on this song, so. . . what’s hotter than listening to yourself sing?

Prince – Kiss
There are dozens of suitable getting-it-on songs from this pint sized purveyor of brilliantly crafted pop songs, but Kiss is the only Prince song that I simply can’t just listen to – I must move when this is played. How I move depends on who’s in the room.
Air – Venus
You’re all worked up, time to bring it home with the sensual sounds of Air.

Cocteau Twins – Lorelei
Beautiful and heavy Scottish accents. The indecipherable lyrics means you can concentrate on, ahem, more important matters at hand.
Al Green – Simply Beautiful
Mazzy Star – Fade Into You
Of course I ended with this song.
