Oh Hello, Baby-making Music

First, let me start off by wishing you….

Last year I went with a musical theme for my Valentine’s Day post, so this year I decided to do the same. However, as much as I love to make fun of R.Kelly songs(he makes it so easy for us) I’ve decided to switch things up. Instead of providing you with a list of songs that are guaranteed to kill the mood on Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share with you some that I find undeniably sexy.

As I mentioned before, one of my New Year’s intentions was to listen to more music. I used to be the girl who obsessively kept up with every R&B, Hip Hop group and dreamed of working at Vibe magazine, interviewing the likes of Jay-Z and Usher. However, somewhere along the line when I entered the post college workforce, my total preoccupation with music got relegated to the back burner. Since December I’ve been making a conscious effort to make music more of a priority – reading music blogs like Soulbounce, listening to music while I work, downloading, purchasing and getting into new artists. The whole process has been really awesome – kind of like falling back in love with part of myself.

One of the artists I recently discovered is Rhye. According to Pitchfork, Rhye is a collaboration between Toronto native Mike Milosh and Robin Hannibal of Danish electro-soul outfit Quadron, who both now live in L.A. The result of their union: songs that are romantic, breathy and totally seductive.

R-Kelly could learn a few things from these guys who with the song “Open” have managed to make a music video that’s about sex without being raunchy and totally airbrushed. I love how the couples in the video look like real couples, and the sex looks like real sex – nope, no ridiculous underwear ensembles or baby-oiled bodies here folks! Check it out:

I also am quite smitten with their other single “The Fall” and it’s video. It kind of reminds me of a foreign film that’s full of quirky imagery, love and longing:

So there you go. Let me know what you guys think.

And, if you’re still in the mood to curse Valentine’s Day, keep in mind there’s always the Snatch the Cat Back song that you can play on repeat. So yes, there’s always that. 

Do you have a favourite sexy time song?

Happy Valentines Day & as always, thanks for reading! xox

    Thanks for the music and video shares! Had to hop over to YouTube to view the second one where I then got distracted by this.

    I like Matt & Kim Daylight – this is good too and very interesting video as well.

    I also saw something about Janelle Monae at the Grammy’s and thought of you!

    Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

      I love that Matt & Kim video! Thanks for introducing them to me. I’m now going to check out their other stuff…and probably get stuck in a Youtube vortex, ha!

      Aw, I love Janelle Monae and now that you mentioned that there was something about her on the Grammy’s I’m actually sad I didn’t watch the show.
