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.

Bluestar, I totally agree. I can't listen to "Ziggy Stardust" without some icky memories now. That having been said, there are still some songs that help get me in the mood. Spoon, "I Turn My Camera On" NIN, "Closer" Led Zeppelin, "Kashmir" Portishead, "Glory Box" John Legend, "Save Room" Eleni Mandell, "Giving Up the Fight" Fiest, "My Moon My Man" Goldfrapp, "Oh La La" Iggy Pop, "Fall in Love with Me" ...and this is really weird, but Beethoven's Symphony #7, the Allegretto movement.

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 - sade your body is a wonderland - john mayer all blues - miles davis pda - john legend & a bunch i can't think of. great topic :)

Maxwell and Prince for sure, I don't actually have specific sons. "I Can't Make You Love Me" is my jam. R.Kelly has some good ones as does Boys to Men.
