The Best Hook Up Music: Top 10 Songs To Make Love To

If it weren’t for Marvin Gaye’s music, a lot of us wouldn’t have been born. Making love to a great song is something every woman should try. Music will relax and excite you. Just a few tunes can put you in the right mood. Some sex and relationship experts made a list of most popular songs that couples make love to, so we decided to contribute to that worldwide trend and share our ideas for the perfect sex & love playlist.

#1 Marvin Gaye – Sexual Healing

Marvin Gaye has to be on the play list. His music is probably the reason you are here. No. 233 on the Rolling Stone list of 500 Greatest Love Songs of All Time, named America’s hottest pop culture turn-on. Because sexual healing is something that is good for you, and you’ll do it right when listening to this song.

#2 Righteous Brothers – Unchained Melody

How about making some sweet sweet love? The moment you hear “Oh, my love, my darling, I’ve hungered for your touch” you’ll be ready to let him know that you are still his.

#3 Rhye – Open

This amazing song is relatively new. It was released in early 2012, it’s the duo’s debut video, and it has gained in popularity considerably since then. Make sure you sign in before watching this video since it’s age restricted. Just seeing this video will give you an instant boost and you’ll be calling your partner in no time. Here’s a sneak peak “I’m a fool for that shake in your thighs, I’m a fool for that sound in your sighs, I’m a fool for your bell, I’m a fool for your love.”

#4 Kings of Leon – Sex On Fire

This song screams sex. No further explanation needed. We are talking “the head while I’m driving, I’m driving” kind of action., Then show him just how much you’re burning with desire the moment you reach home.

#5 Marvin Gaye – Let’s Get It On

Marvin Gaye again. He even made Star Spangled Banner sound sexy. If he could do that to a national anthem, you can only imagine what his music will do to your sex life.

#6 Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin – Je T’aime… Moi Non Plus

This song is in French. That should be about enough. Je t’aime somehow sounds more sexual than I love you. Je t’aime, je t’aime…oh…mon amour!

#7 Rod Stewart – Tonight’s the Night

The man is telling the girl what to do, and we mean sex-wise. Do what the guy says and you’ll have your night of sweet loving and fun.

#8 Etta James – Teach Me Tonight

This pop standard has so many covers that it would literally be quite a task to list them all here. For your romantic nights we recommend Etta James’ version. Maybe not the most famous one, but Etta’s voice sounds so adamant and it really sends the right message. If you want to be “taught” tonight, find a perfect spot for it and play this song.

#9 Conway Twitty – I’d Love To Lay You Down

From the legend of country music, to all you former country girls out there. “When a whole lot of Decembers are showin’ in your face, your auburn hair has faded, and silver takes its place, you’ll be just as lovely and I’ll still be around, and if I can I know that I’d still love to lay you down”. This one found its place on our list because it sounds so honest.

#10 Chris Isaak – Wicked Game

The video is sexy. Helena Christensen is sexy. And this guy, back in his day, could sing what he had for breakfast and the ladies would swoon instantly.

Bonus Track: The Rolling Stones – Start me Up

There are debates whether this song is sexual in nature or not, but Keith Richard’s famous signature riff and the lyrics sound pretty sexual. “Ride like the wind at double speed, I’ll take you places that you’ve never, never seen, start it up, love the day when we will never stop, never stop.”

  • Great list. I would add the complete Morphine discography, though, tunes like “You look like rain”, “Buena” or “Like Swimming”.
