Songs about love…and sex.

I have to admit that I am a sucker for a good, romantic, sweet, classy, love song (think something like Elvis and “Can’t Help Falling In Love.”) But I also have to admit that my favorite songs (lyrically speaking) are probably ones that mix some lovin and some sexin. And, well, DMB is a master at making songs lustfully steamy. But not just lustfully steamy but romantic as well. Here is one of my favorites for its beautifully poetic dirty lyrics and for its musical complexity, including its absurd rhythms (5/4 to 4/4 to 6/8 or something like that).

Ha, Open wide
Oh so good I’ll eat you
Take me for a ride
In your sweet delicious
Perfect little mouth
Thereupon I linger
You will have no doubt
I’ll do my best for you, I do

Let’s stop to get it going
Lost myself just thinking
About the two of us
From each other drinking
Begin with the lips
Fingertips and kissing
Turn me inside out
I do my best for you

Up and down we go
From the top you push me
This is such a thrill
Lost in love and dancing
Shake your tambourine
You blow my head open
Of this there’s no doubt
I do my best for you I do

For you I would crawl
Through the darkest dungeon
Climb the castle wall
If you are my Rapunzel
You let your hair down
Right in through your window
Good they locked the door
I do my best for you

I think the world of you
All of my heart I do
Blood through my veins for you
You alone have all of me
I give my world to you
To you I will be true

Too good to be real
Smell of something cooking
My soul you’re to steal
Food of love we’re filling
What you’ve given me
For it there is no measure
Of one thing I am sure
I’ll give my best for you

I think the world of you
All of my heart I do
Blood through my veins for you
You alone have all of me
From you my strength is full
To carry your burdens too
I give my world to you

Hip lock up so tight
You drive me crazy
Crazy is all right
With you looking at me
You make me feel high
Every single thing you do to me
Is like I’m drunk/fucked
I do my best for you, I do
