Songs that hit you right in the pelvis

Inspired by the “Sweeping Songs” thread, but this is for songs that hit…a little lower. They can be songs that make you wanna shake it, if that’s your thing, or songs that just go straight to the gonads.

One of my first was Steelworker by Big Black. (It’s the part right after the intro, as the song really hits its stride with the bass crawl that does it for me.)

Also Sometimes Pleasure Heads Must Burn by the Birthday Party (also Zoo Music Girl, but I can’t find a good video). Actually, most things by Nick Cave make me feel a little lubricated.

“Crazy on You” by Heart is another, with it’s little tinkly intro sliding into the big sound.


I no longer have the album, but the song is on Chuck Magione’s Feels So Good album. It’s the first song on side two. I’m considering ordering the album from Amazon when I’ve the money. In the mean time, does anyone remember the name of the song?

Love, Phil

Checks Nope, still no gonads.

I dunno…I Wanna Be Your Dog? I’m Your Man?

Everything on my iPod at the moment. Has left me singing and swinging my ass all over the house.

My family now hates me.

You have gonads, even if they’re not external. Unless you’ve had your ovaries removed.

I’m talking about songs that for whatever reason make you feel…urm…horny, even if they’re not about love, romance, or sex.

So I’m not just talking about songs that make you want to dance, but songs that make you want to dirty dance.

Oh well get all picky on me. :smiley:

And I listed two I thought qualfied. And all my dancing is dirty dancing :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: .

Actually, I can get behind “I Wanna Be Your Dog.”

“I’m Your Man” not so much, if you’re talking about the Leonard Cohen version.

Shirley Manson of Garbage, that womans voice is just so friggin Naughty!!!
most of their songs fall into this catagory

The Spider’s Stratagem and The Ubiquitous Mr Lovegrove by Dead Can Dance are languorous and slow-burning sex
A Screw(Holy Money) By Swans is urgent bent-over-the-car-hood sex

Scheherazade by Rimsky-Korsakov, Edvard Grieg’s Erotik, Adagio of Spartacus and Phrygia by Khachaturian. Not Ravel’s Bolero.

(get off my lawn you kids, I’ll be needing it for the blindfolded Gypsy violinists!)

Lots o’ Zeppelin, but especially “Whole Lotta Love” and “Since I’ve Been Loving You.”

When my son was a baby, he would always shake his diaper to Talking in Your Sleep, by the Romantics.

I see now that’s not exactly what you were looking for, but the diaper was frequently dirty, so I thought it might still count. :slight_smile:

Straight to the gonads, dancing-wise? nothing like trip-hop.

– anything by Emiliana Torrini
– Six Feet Under by the Sneaker Pimps

Let’s see…

“Pearl of Euphoria” and “All Night”-Def Leppard
“Flood”-Sisters of Mercy
“Closer” and “Physical (You’re So)”-NiN

Combichrist - “Get Your Body Beat”
LOTS of NIN songs (all the ones that sound the same, with the throbbing bassline)
Wolfmother - “Love Tain”
Dire Straits - “Sultans of Swing”
Gorillaz - “Feel Good, Inc.”
Little River Band - Lady"
RHPS - “Time Warp”

Two I can think of:
“SLOW HAND” (forget the artist)
“GOOD VIBRATIONS”-by the Beach Boys (“shes givin me excitations…”

Lots of industrial stuff affects me this way–particularly anything fast with a driving beat and at least something of a melody. Assemblage 23, Funker Vogt, Icon of Coil…yeah).

But my number-one song in this regard is Peter Gabriel’s “Signal to Noise,” from his “Up” CD. I’ve always described the ending of that song as ‘orgasmic.’ It was mind-blowing live, but cranking up the volume on the speakers is almost as good.

I typically call ‘Phantom of the Opera’ audio porn. Basically anytime Michael Crawford starts singing, I start swooning.

Republica - Ready to Go
10000 Maniacs - Because the Night
Stroke 9 - Do it Again
Garbage - Push It
Mazzy Star - Fade Into You
Billy Idol - Cradle of Love

Puscifer - Rev 22:20
Poe - Control
Cruxshadows - Winterborn

And now, I think I’ll stop, before I start to reveal a trend. :slight_smile:

You Can Leave Your Hat On - Joe Cocker, used in “9 1/2 Weeks”
I’m A Man - Bo Diddley
Let’s Make It - AC/DC, “The Razor’s Edge”
She Goes Down and Sticky Sweet, both on Motley Crue’s “Dr. Feelgood”
Sixty Minute Man - Jelly Roll Morton
Endless Sleep - Billy Idol, “Charmed Life”. It’s not the lyrics, it’s just the way he sings it.
