Writing is one of my several hobbies, and lists like the one below help me with writer's block every now and again.
Slow Dance Songs to Set the Mood
What is it about dancing to a sexy, slow love song that makes you feel as if you're floating above the rest of the world? The feeling you get when you spin round and round getting so dizzy, you're tempted to fall to the ground in wonderment? Well, actually being in love has a lot to do with it.
Most of the time, these songs are closely tied to the moment when you know that you've met someone special. The moment when you're looking into another person's eyes and thinking that you want to be with them forever and seeing the same thing in their eyes is an experience that you'll never forget, but not everyone really has.
If you are actually dancing to one of the songs in this article when that happens, the odds will be very high it'll be a song that'll be played at your wedding. Thank you for giving the article a chance, and I hope you'll discover a few good love songs that you haven't heard before.
The Best Slow Dance Songs
A lot of the older love songs I've come to really enjoy were introduced to me by my grandparents when I was younger. "At Last" by Etta James holds a special place in my heart, as I can remember watching my granny and paw dancing to it on several occasions.
- "I Found A Love" by Lonnie Mack
- "All Too Well" by Taylor Swift
- "Fade Into You" by Mazzy Star
- "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" by Aerosmith
- "Amazed" by Lonestar
- "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green
- "At Last" by Etta James
Sexy Songs to Slow Dance To
- "Careless Whisper" by George Michael / Wham!: This is a great song to slow dance to, especially if there is a certain amount of heat between the people dancing.
- "Crimson and Clover" by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts: The 1968 original by Tommy James and the Shondells is incredible, but hearing those words come out of Joan Jett's mouth is absolutely mouth-watering.
- "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston: The original Dolly Parton version of this song is great, but has a very different "country" feel to it than the one done by Whitney.
- "Up Where We Belong" by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes: I discovered this amazing love song after watching the movie An Officer and a Gentleman.
- "When a Man Loves a Woman" by Percy Sledge: While this R&B hit has a few different versions, the one sung by Percy Sledge speaks to your soul.
- "In For The Kill" by La Roux: While I know this song can be looked at in a different way by some, I've always considered this a kind of edgy love song. Think of the lyrics "going in for the kill" as going in for a deep, passionate kiss and you'll know what I mean.
- "The Hunter Gets Captured" by the Game by Massive Attack and Tracey Thorn: This is a seductive, playful love song that put you in the mind of a game of "cat and mouse." That could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your point of view.
Seductive Songs To Entice the Ones You Love
"Come To Me" by Deborah Holland: I discovered this one for the first time after watching Fright Night 2 (1989 version). The dance scene from the film is especially alluring, even though it's only the instrumental version of the song.
Someone brought up the fact that this song would make a better choice for a good wedding song rather than a slow dance tune, which I completely disagree with. To me, this one belongs on a "songs too sexy for weddings" kind of list, as it is all about the seduction of beauty. It's a really great sexy song to slow dance to that will completely entice your significant other and absolutely belongs on this type of list.

Sensual Songs to Fall in Love To
There are songs that take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. When falling in love and happily married, the song can lift you up to amazing heights. When the same song is played during times of sadness or despair, the tears and heartbreak are almost unbearable.
- "Unchained Melody" by Righteous Brothers
- "Can't Help Falling" in Love by UB40: Elvis's rendition may be more well known, but the performance by UB40 holds a special place in my heart.
- "(Everything I Do) I Do it For You" by Bryan Adams: A power ballad with thick romantic undertones that my friend used once at a karaoke bar to declare his love to his future wife. You could see it in her face that she knew that song was being sung to her and only her.
- "Fever" by Peggy Lee: Songs like this can really make you sweat under the right circumstances. Definitely one of the most sultry songs I've ever heard.
- "Have I Told You Lately" by Van Morrison: This romantic ballad is definitely one of the finest love songs of the nineties.
- "Killing Me Softly With His Song" by The Fugees, Ms. Lauryn Hill: This song with low-key notes has sexual tension all throughout it, and Roberta Flack's original version is just as romantic and just as intimate.
Songs to Make Love To
- "Bad Things" by Jace Everett: This cool love song didn't get popular until it was chosen as the intro song for the True Blood TV series on HBO. It had just the right amount of edge and sex appeal to make it a hit, and while the show certainly had something to do with its popularity, I do believe it would have eventually been discovered by others.
- "I'll Make Love to You" by Boyz II Men: One of the top love songs of the early nineties that people love to sing along with.
- "I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl" by Nina Simone: The Blues have always had a layer of sexuality covering them, with just a little humor at times. This version of this song is pretty much the sexuality.
- "Lady" by Kenny Rogers: Two music genres comic together to make magic. R&B superstar Lionel Richie wrote it, and Country legend Kenny Rogers sang it.
- "Take Me to Church" by Hozier: This song is sexy as hell, with heavy overtones of submissiveness. A great song about someone completely in love with someone else.
Some More Sexy Slow Jams
"Strawberry Wine" by Deana Carter: This is another song that some people see to think is "too sexy". I'm not sure whether it's because there aren't that many of these types of songs in Country music in general, or it's because of the way the video for the song was shot. Either way, this song belongs on this list.
Not many Country songs focus on the happy points of a budding relationship. Most of them focus on the heartache that comes with the loss of degrading of one. It's always refreshing when a song like this comes along. The fact that the song is as sexual as it is, makes it all the better.
