What’s on Your Bedroom Playlist?

Mmm-hmm. With today’s post I’m gettin’ all up in yo’ bedroom biznazzz!

Music plays a special part in romantic relationships. Why else do we go through so much to pick the “perfect” song for the first dance at a wedding?

There’s something about a song lyric being able to convey the emotions and feelings we simply can’t conjure up with our own words. Like this:

“You found me such a mess
And still, you took my hand
And held me out of numbness
Became my truest friend”

Sweet, right?


It’s no surprise then, that music and the bedroom go hand in hand. Special things happen when certain songs get played at the right time, if you know what I mean. The legendary concept of “the mood” comes to mind here.

Unfortunately for us at the moment (and I’m just keeping it real) with a one year old sleeping in our bedroom, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” gets heard more often than our best love making jams. *sigh* That’ll change this year, though.

Once we do move, you betta believe that iPod playlist will be on and cracking!

I’m talking real, grown folk music. None of that “Kiss Me Thru the Phone” business!

Here are some quick “steamy” picks from yours truly:

“Sex Therapy” – Robin Thicke

“So Gone” - Jill Scott

“Love Scene” – Joe

“Say Yes” – Floetry

“Sweet Love” – 112

“Stop the World” - Maxwell

I think it would be fun to share…

  • LOL I’m with Krissy. We have a playlist but it’s been awhile since it’s been played. Honestly with our 4 year son we have to just go for it when we can!
    However, most of the songs are pretty old school for us that are on the playlist. I’m talking about Marvin Gaye to Jodeci to R Kelly to Keith Sweat, Brian McKnight, etc. etc.!! ;)

      That doesn’t mean you can’t make one! If not the bedroom you can make a playlist of your fave love songs to play in the car when you go out on dates!

  • If I had a husband, I’d play the songs in my iPad..which is a lot of Rick Ross and TI.

    Rap songs create a new dynamic during relations.
