Did that fool Trey Songz really make a song saying he invented sex and then follow it up with a song about neighbors knowing his name? He’s not the only R & B singer that has fallen into the trap of singing about fucking. It seems like every artist being played on the radio can only talk about getting some, what they do while they’re getting some, and what they’re gonna being until the next time they get some. I’m of the opinion (and if you know me, then you know I think my opinion is fact) that real music about sex doesn’t ever have to mention the word “sex”. In fact, I think the best music to fornicate, adulterate, or do it to purposely exclude “sex”. Here is a list of five sexy songs where the sexual inneundos are sweet and subtle. **Disclaimer: I’m only including five because I don’t feel like extensively searching lyrics to back up my claim. If you want to add or dispute, write your own list!
Summer Rain ~ Carl Thomas, Emotional
Sexy lyric – In the middle of the night when I’m alone
I feel her kisses on me even when she’s gone
Can’t wait til she gets home
Instead of saying, “I’m so horny cuz she not here,” Carl expresses his desire to see his boo again by describing her kisses…not where she kisses, but that she kisses. Use your imagination…
Take Off the Blues ~ The Foreign Exchange, Leave It All Behind
Sexy Lyric – And when the sun goes down
You’re feeling things you’ve never felt before
Nothing left to say to ease your fears
But I know just what to do
Let me take good care of you
Everyone has their first time with someone at some point in a sexual relationship and no matter how “experienced” you are, anxiety strikes when you really care about this person. What better way to smooth away the nerves than hearing that your body is in good hands? I vote “Yea” on being taken care of.
Down Here in Hell (With You)
Sexy Lyric – See, I wanna make you feel the fire
Wanna burn you with my bad days
Ooh, I wanna be unsatisfied
So you can feel the heat coming from me, baby
Anyone who has been in love before knows that there is nothing perfect about it. The only thing for certain is nothing – you WILL disagree about something and what better way to make up than to make love. Van Hunt has crafted a beautiful song about the ups and downs of love, and make up sex is best had to a song that describes exactly how you feel…I’d rather be miserable and in love with you than anywhere else.
Submerge:Till We Become the Sun ~ Maxwell, Embrya
Sexy Lyric – Let your atmosphere surround me
Maxwell makes some of the sexiest music ever written and plenty of his music could have earned a spot on my list, however, some include the word sex and had to be excluded (e.g. Sexiest song of all time: Til the Cops Come Knockin’). The lyrics of “Submerge” are fairly simple…Til we become the sun…but I could listen to the instrumental and get a little moist just thinking about. It’s a very fluid track, and fluids make me think of moisture and Maxwell and well….you know how it goes. Anywho, I can think of nothing BUT sex when I hear this song and Maxwell never even utters the word…let me take a little break…WOOOOSSSAAAHHHH!!!!!!
Nothing Even Matters ~ Lauryn Hill featuring D’Angelo, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hil
Sexy Lyric THE WHOLE SONG!
Lauryn describes love in a way that even the simplest fool could understand…man or woman. But the sexiest part of the song is when she and D’Angelo repeat over and over, “Nothing but you…” What a perfect way to describe a romantic moment than by only wanting it with the one you’re with. I’m not sure if any man can make me feel that good if Toyota were to repossess my Camry but I could imagine it must be pretty damn good.
I’m pretty sure I’ve left off a million songs that could be included, but like I said…these are MY favorite five. If you feel inclined to add to the list, go for it, but just know I WILL check to see if “sex” is in the lyrics.
Make love, not babies.
