What music is sexy?
I was asked to DJ at the orgy in Commune Utopia recently, so I had to give this a really good thought. How should I bring people to the boil and work them up to a lusty, frisky mood? I ran to ask my beloved of course…
Fiona: Whims! What music would you say is sexy?
Whims: Are we talking Va Va Voom sexy with a feather boa, or are we talking sexy like when you walk in the room and I nearly faint?
Fiona: Va Va Voom sexy for an orgy!
Whims: Well I’m not sure how others will see it – what about a pretty piano piece that sort of builds and then another instrument, like a Violin Cello sort of entwines around the piano and, and then you almost feel them like lovers in arms…? Thats so sexy!
Fiona: Weeeelll….*shakes her head*… its a sort of group thing Whims, ummm.. it might need a little more ommph power to get things rolling! We can’t have them hesitate! We need to let them find their root chakra and work from their pelvises!
Whims : from the pelvis.. imagines penises swinging.. so swing music…..
Fiona: *giggles vaguely amused*
Whims: Ohh! So like, all tangly and arms and legs poking out everywhere and making odd noises?
Fiona: ummm something like that, yes.
Whims: So, like if you had one of those German guys wearing knickerbockers and a funny hat, with cymbols on his knees and a big drum and playing a mouth harp… sort of Oompha! Pa! Oompha! Pa! Like that….?
Fiona: … *blinks* …
So I went to the Commune to ask a few others what they thought:
What is sexy music?
Luckily I found Yoru, the Queen of Commune orgies herself and Pross a new member of the commune that gave me some suggestions.
Pross dived in to the area very seriously and gave me this wonderfully intimate and sexy tip. After that I lost her when she moved on and gave me HUNDREDS of links, me and Whims will be occupied for years trying them out. (Oh the thought of that…)
Yoru on the other hand very kindly praised me for my music taste telling she loves my sultry style, so I decided: Enough! I’ll find this on my own!
So here is what I finally came up with after consulting my own feeling and after thinking about what music people has been commenting on when I have played:
Herbie Hancock: Watermelon man, from the album “Jazz inspiration”
Entrée (finger food):
Fatima Al Qadiri: “Desert strike” (the whole album since it’s short)
Tracks from Parov Stelar’s album “The art of sampling”
(I choose the tracks with deep bass and that didn’t have so much “old fashion swing” about them.)
Pursuit Grooves: Fragile and Shouldn’t be here from the album “Leaping desire”
Fever Ray: When I grow up, Triangle walks, Concrete walls from the album “When I grow up” and “Fever Ray”
k.d.Lang: Calling all angels (duet with Jane Siberry), Hallelujah, Crying (duet with Roy Orbison) and Helpless all from the album “Recollection”
