It's Friday, I'm in Love

with lovin.' Sweet, sweet lovin.' It doesn't take much to get a girl like me into bed e.g. a (1) PBR, kind(ish) glance, the promise of cheese flavored corn chips, etc, but it takes a lot almost nothing to keep me there. Hey, a girl has needs. I am a girl. Ergo needs. Or whatever. My needs are best met in the presence of the following albums. In the words of Ron Burgundy, my hero: "that's baby making music that's what that is."

1. Astral Weeks - Van Morrison: Need I say more? This is a sure way into my pants. I mean heart. The heart of my pants.


2. Kind of Blue - Miles Davis: Again, not much to be said here. Fuckin' genius.


3. Lovers Rock - Sade: It's freakin' Sade. She's the definition of sexytime music. Come on. Seriously.


4. Heartbreaker - Ryan Adams: Because I'll always have a little indie rocker in me. Well, hopefully not too little. ZING! (God, I hope my mother - or anyone for that matter - isn't reading this.)


5. Mutations - Beck: Perfect for space sex.



6. Between The Lines - Janis Ian: Weird choice, I know. That is all.

Britney Spears - Breathe On Me. Makes me want to do nasty things with cheetos.

dmbmeg said...

Not weird...I would go dyke for Janis Ian

JebusHChrist said...

I'll alert Janis Ian that all of her dreams have come true.

Van Morrison + Miles Davis = absolute cool

John said...

I'm so glad that Bryan Adams made your list- who hasn't made out to "One Night Love Affair"?

But in all seriousness, I'm surprised I didn't see any Nick Drake. He seems to fit the baby-making-music mold.

blythe said...

julie - mmm. cheetos. that whole 9 1/2 weeks scene could've been so different.

dmbmeg - thanks! i don't know how, but you seem to get me. at seventeen breaks my heart on a weekly basis.

jebus - is she still alive? j/k. i know she is because i am one of the two people who owns her latest album.

john - is that your subtle way of telling me you don't like ryan adams? also, excellent call on the nick drake. road. pink moon. wonderful. perhaps i will be updating the list by the end of the day.

oh, and "baby making music" is figurative only. good god.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

What, no Kajagoogoo?
"Too Shy" gets my juices flowing every time.

5 of 9er said...

Sade... nice!

But I still want to know what Julie Gong would do to a cheeto...

dmbmeg said...

At Seventeen is one of my most played songs on my iPod.

Great minds, Blythe...great minds...

Julie_Gong said...

9er - the question isn't what would i do its what wouldn't i do

stewpid said...

I can't make any intelligent comments about music today because "Unskinny Bop" is stuck in my head. Help me.

Mr. Shain said...

ok, how come blythe writes about gettin' busy with beck and sade and the worst thing in her comments is about julie gong's cheetos fetish, but i write about a happy family soft drink and my comment section immediately turns into cum shots and drugs?

wait, don't answer that.

dmbmeg said...

mr. shain-
you're now going to be on my blogroll. clearly I have been missing out.

blythe said...

cherry - really?

9er - really?

dmbmeg - i know.

julie - yes. yes.

stew - shain would say, "that's unfortunate."

shain - nice one, shain. nice one. don't think i don't know what you're doing because i do. you're sly like an elephant.

dmbmeg - he's my favorite. only because i know him in real life.

is it 5 yet?

d said...

ok. first of all, nick drake is so not baby-making music. way too depressing.

can i recommend ray lamontagne and, surprisingly, iron and wine.

blythe said...

d - i dunno. i like the nick drake.

but you are dead on with ray and iron and wine. dead on. which ray l. album though? box set... i saw him live. might be my favorite show to date.

Mr. Shain said...

yes, you know me well. at least i didnt stick a link in there!

and i would say "that's unfortunate"!!!

stewpid said...

I LOVE RAY LAMONTAGNE

HE SHOULD MARRY ME RIGHT NOW

that is all

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Wow, Shain is resorting to hijacking other people's comments sections now. Is there no depth his jealousy of you, Blythe, will no sink to?

stephen said...

yesterday I downloaded Pornotronic - Lost Music from 70's Porno. I was sure you were going to list that.

(that's not a joke. the first part anyway. i really did download it)

Big Daddy said...

I lost my virginity to Sade's 'Love Deluxe' album.

Ha.

Also, did anyone catch that Janis Ian is the name of the character in 'Mean Girls' that Regina George spread a rumor that she was lesbian?

[Hee hee, I accidentally typed 'lesbina' and I kind of like that better].

Jess said...

I think Black Rebel Motorcycle Club makes some serious sexytime music. It's hot, sweaty, sexytime in a crowded, smoky bar, but it is sexytime nonetheless.

Especially their most recent album. Total lady wood.

blythe said...

shain - i know. because i know you. scary.

stewpid - can he marry both of us? i'm ok with that if you are.

cherry - obvs not. this is an ongoing problem between shain and i. he's been super jealous of me since our high school days. you understand.

stephen - how did you even think to download that? amazing. i have so much to learn.

big daddy - i'm a total lesbina.

jess - really? i'll have to give it a try. oh wait. you have to have someone to do it with. right.

(Tim Layne) the Homeless Blogger said...

How could you forget "Coconut Bangers Ball: It's a Rap!" by Robert Goulet? Shameful.

stewpid said...

fine with me. Ray?

Mr. Shain said...

screw you guys, i'm goin' home.

blythe said...

(finally)

NathanWind said...

wrong beck cd. either sea change or midnite vultures. depends on whether you want to kill yourself afterwards or go to a titty bar and then kill yourself.

Beau said...

you also left out portishead. I am SO happy you did not mention the evil Chris Isaak

NathanWind said...

isn't it a little too late for #4?? yes he is little

JebusHChrist said...

You know what else is good for love wresting? Bonnie "Prince" Billy. Yeah, you wouldn't think so, but it is.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

I love "lesbina." It's like a word used to describe a young lesbian in training - thanks Big Daddy

Lesbina is actually quite appropriate for you, Blythe, as you went to SL.

JebusHChrist said...

I also like "lesbina". I think it adds a little spicy flair. Like she enjoys jalapeno poppers, salsa dancing, and the company of women.
This will absolutely catch on. I can see it on the big screen... LESBINA: THE MOVIE! Starring Paz Vega (realistically they'll go with Penelope Cruz which would be fine).

blythe said...

tim - thoughts of robert goulet should probably not enter the bedroom. or should they?

stewpid - heard anything from ray yet?

shain - quit yer whinin' yet?

nathan - um. my life is a night at the titty bar.

beau - ah, portishead. but of course. the thing is, i only know glory box, really. chris isaak! how could i forget?

nathan - ...

jebus - i think you might be confusing "love wrestling" with suicide. really? BPB? ok. i'd get my sexyback on to "lay and love."

cherry - i know! great word. and we were all here for its inception. wait, i went where? SL? do you know something i don't? wouldn't be the first time. actually, it would be the first time if i knew anything.

jebus - i am 1/3 lesbina! paz vega and penelope cruz... maybe i'm 2/3 lesbina.

JebusHChrist said...

To be fair, Quarashi is also on my sexytime playlist. You know how I do.

I would be 100% lesbina, if I could.

stewpid said...

nothing from ray :(

we may have to stalk him stewpid-style, which means drinking wine in his neighborhood. Or PBRs. Just, y'know, drinking. I have already started.

I like "lesbina," too. Hopefully Ray agrees.

blythe said...

jebus - who? excuse my ignorance, but that sounds like something you'd find on the natural foods aisle (but i will dutifully check them out). and you're 100% lesbina to me.

stewpid - damnit. i'll have my people call his people. again. drinking at 2.57? you're my kinda girl. and "lesbina" is a ray song title if i've ever heard one.

JebusHChrist said...

Stewpid - I love the way you stalk.

blythe - They're a (completely unknown) rap group from Iceland. I know! If the Beastie Boys had grown up in an igloo listening to nothing but Limp Bizkit it would sound like Quarashi. Kind of.

stewpid said...

would any of the members of Quarashi like to marry us?

JebusHChrist said...

I don't know if they're marriage material. You might want to listen to Stick Em Up first anyway. They aren't all polished and swoony like Ray.

stewpid said...

seriously, we're not that picky. we're not picky at all. do they have pulses?

blythe said...

pulses are totally optional.

JebusHChrist said...

Didn't mean to leave you ladies hanging. I just heard back from Quarashi and they want both of you, not for marriage though, they just wanna fool around.

blythe said...

done and done. you in agreement stew? hey, beggars can't be choosers. or whatever.

Dre said...

love your blog...

'heartbreaker' is one of my all time faves.
