Bedroom Music.

I was recently bopping around Myspace when I came across this video. In it, Bangers and Cash discuss their Top Ten Songs To Do It To. They are:

10. Anytime, Anyplace::Janet Jackson
9. Joga::Bjork
8. My Neck, My Back::Khia
7. Roni::Bobby Brown
6. Be My Angel::Mazzy Star
5. Turn Off The Lights::Teddy Pendergrass
4. Half On A Baby::R. Kelly
3. Come Undone::Duran Duran
2. Doin' It::LL Cool J
1. Go Bye Bye::The Blind Dates

Needless to say, this little video got me thinking about my own list.

And so I went to work. Initially, I considered a list with lots of M83 and Sigur Ros, but I soon realized that 1) you most likely have those songs already, and 2) it can actually be pretty difficult to live up to those folks and their epicness, whether making love or elsewhere. Rather, I felt the Hey! Student community might benefit most from a few delightful slow jams. Without further ado:

10. Send For Me – Atlantic Starr
9. Slow And Easy – Zapp & Roger
8. Ballad de Melody Nelson – Serge Gainsbourg
7. Rock Wit'cha – Bobby Brown
6. Ageispolis – Aphex Twin
5. Between The Sheets – Isley Brothers
4. Your Body's Callin' – R. Kelly
3. Knockin' Da Boots – H-Town
2. Kid For Today – Boards Of Canada

aaaaaaaaaand, drumroll.

1. Do Me Baby – Prince [Controversy, 1981]

I challenge you, fellow Hey! Studenters: let's see your top ten. Judging by the quality of my sex, there must be a better list out there.

Here is my mix, zipped.* Please use it responsibly.

*I tried to write a pun about this word for seven minutes.
