Chapter 155: Doin' It

Disco, funk & bedroom R&B

I can only speak for myself, but it’s very hard to imagine actually making love while any of these songs about sex are playing. They’re too on the nose - better to hit it from an angle (so to speak) with some lightly groovy indie rock or something. What is this music good for, then? Slow dancing, light canoodling, or even solo appreciation of the pleasures of human connection. You don’t have to fake an orgasm (like Donna Summer) or ad-lib the literal word “orgasm” (like Snoop) to summon the spirit: all Barry White needed was a bass line and a whisper.
