My friend, Sarah, thinks I have magic tastes when it comes to music.
Truth be told, I do not.
There are other, much bolder, much wider-listening folks than me.
I think she just happens to like what I like.
She has asked me for my playlists.
So I’m sharing one today.
It is my ‘Naughty Winter’ playlist.
The songs are not in any great order.
Usually I am a much better DJ than this; my playlists tend to run smoothly.
But this one…I just let Apple Genius figure it out.
If anything, it is both the prayer and the embodiment of dark, sensual, indoor desire of all kinds.
(Links to the playlist, so you can purchase, are in 8Tracks. Go here.)
Shut Up and Dance | Walk the Moon
It’s my song to guide my year.
Pocketful of Sunshine | Natasha Bedingfield
A little song about self-pleasuring. Mmmmmm….
Ghost | Ella Henderson
A song about how women pray to let go. We ask the river to carry us, to carry it, away. As many times as we need to.
Under Pressure | Queen & David Bowie
“Love dares you to care for the people on the edge of the night.”
Partition | Beyonce
Be sexy. This is how.
Where the Boys At? | Chelsea Jane
Two reasons: “I’m five-four and I stand tall!” and “Pretty good for a girl? ha ha! I’m pretty good world class!”
Desire | Meg Myers
The best valentine ever.
Beggin’ for Thread | Banks
The sexiest voice on the most interesting metaphor for lost love.
Get Ur Freak On | Missy Elliot
Because: This Girl Can.
Again, you can listen to the playlist over on 8tracks.com.
The ‘Spring Expansion’ Mix will be coming up soon.
I am in the refinement process.
It is shaping up to be quite different.
