Aha, yeah, I don't think I've ever made out to music before (yeah, I know I'm probably missing out), but I have made out to an episode of Fresh Prince of Bellair, lol. We had the volume on really low and only had it on in case a parent walked in (so we could jump up quickly and claim to have been watching it). So now every time I watch that show, I think of that and laugh to myself.

A lot of people are mentioning Kashmir. That's a good one, but I prefer the Lemon Song...

Bellasugar, I TOTALLY agree...Loveless is great! I think "Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space" by Spiritualized is prime make-out material as well.

i love that's the way love goes. but i'm such a huge janet fan. lol. & i also agree with nice & slow. although i feel like sexual healing is a good make out song, after watching the video i always crack up when i hear it. the d'angelo song is good for making out...but that can make you easily escalate into other things. lmao. hmm .. some of my favorites are:by your side - sadeyour body is a wonderland - john mayerall blues - miles davispda - john legend& a bunch i can't think of. great topic :)
