Aug 25 2015 Summer Playlist for Hotel HarounCategory: General     05:34PM   0

Recently I was spending time with one of my favorites at my incall and he set the mood just right by sharing his playlist with me. It had some gems: R. Kelly’s “Marry the Pu**y.” I loved it so much that it inspired me to put together my own sexy throwback playlist (with a few newer artists mixed in for some fresh sounds!).

-- Slowly: Max Sedgley

-- Untitled (How Does it Feel): D'Angelo

-- Make it Wit Chu: Queens of the Stone Age

-- Between the Sheets: Isley Brothers

-- Ignition (Remix): R. Kelly

-- Pony: Ginuwine

-- Electric Feel: MGMT

-- Gravel Pit: Wu Tang Clan

-- Milkshake: Kelis

-- SexyBack: Justin Timberlake

-- I want your sex: George Michael

-- When you're smiling and astride me: Father John Misty

-- Nobody (feat. Athena Cage): Keith Sweat

-- Feel Like Makin' Love: Roberta Flack

-- Sweet Thang: Shuggie Otis

-- Rise: Herb Alpert

I shared it with him during our most recent session and was delighted that the playlist introduced him to some artists that he'd never heard. In putting together the list, I also heard Herb Alpert's "Rise" for the first time and was startled to hear the original sample for Biggie's "Hypnotize." It felt like a puzzle piece falling into place in the vast jigsaw of samples, beats and rhymes that is hip hop.

A meta-read on playlists describes the playlist as "a kind of biographical shorthand, a way of communicating something essential about ourselves through the performance of taste." Hmmm...what does mine say about me? And what would yours say about you? Readers...I invite you to share your sexy playlists with me in the comments!
