Making Out

A friend recounted a story of an intimate moment interrupted by his partner suddenly asking a question about lyrics.

"And then we both thought of you. Because of your misheard lyrics posts. Not because of anything weird."

Awkward pause.

Clearly the next logical question was...

"What song?"

I wasn't familiar with it, and upon hearing it, was puzzled.

"That's a bit faster than anything I'd play during an unspecified intimate moment."
"Um, well, it has a good beat."

I refrained from further questions.

But it did remind me to review my make-out playlist. It's an odd thing. I have no idea what I was thinking on some of these tracks, which clearly belong on a "sex it up" playlist, not a "make out" list.

And just to randomly drop some tracks on you,

"Clouds Up" - Air

"You Do" - Aimee Mann

"Les Professionnels" - Air


"Sleepwalk" - Santo & Johnny

"Wicked Game" - Chris Isaak

"Ain't No Sunshine" - Bill Withers

"Justify My Love" - Madonna

"Something's Gotta Give" - Beastie Boys
(well, until I watched this video, anyway)


  1. Yes, remove Beastie Boys. Nice thinking with the Chris Isaak. What about Boys II Men? U2? Oh wait...why am I helping you with this?

  2. *sigh* It's a cool, mellow song. Just not a cool, mellow video.

    My play list has 135 songs on it, including "All I Want Is You" and "So Cruel" by U2.

    Oh, and "I'll Make Love To You" by Boys II Men.

  3. Hello, why is there no Led Zeppelin on this list? Oh, and Coldplay's "Sparks".

    Maybe I'm just a weirdo.

    I also have a vague sensation that this sort of conversation might have come up before...I'm not sure if it was about you, though... Hmm. I'll have to think about that.

  4. Zeppelin? What song? Stairway to Heaven? It's a little un-mellow at the end.

    I haven't heard "Sparks."

    A make-out conversation ABOUT me?!

  5. No, I'm thinking more D'yer Maker...is that dirty?

    No. I think it was either post- or pre-makeout.
    I think it involved "Violent Love".

  6. My dance geek answer: "Oh yeah, half-time."

    "Violent Love!"

    But I think you just outed yourself.
