Yes, me again.Just curious as to what people consider the most erotic music ever.Not necessarily a piece that you would wish to have sex to (never a good idea,you end up focusing on someone else's rhythmns rather than each others.) Just a piece with that indefinable "Something". I would opt for Bizet's "Habanera" but have never been able to precisely identify why. Simply prefer to experience it.

Most of Sinatra's "ballads" and torch songs. Say what you will about him, his phrasing and orchesteral arrangements were, to my ear, always spot-on; Bob Shane's "Scotch and Soda" (yep-gotta get a KT song in here-LOL); These days my ears are turned by the clear, rather crystaline female vocals of someone like Alison Krauss, or Sara McLaughlin--even though the tunes need not have ANY kind of romantic/sexual content-they just make me want to curl up with them in front of a roaring fire and some fine wine. Sorry if that sounds dumb. And I'm sure plenty of you can't stand the two examples I cited.

What I DON'T find "sexy" is the Britney Spears/Jay-lo/girly gyrations and scantily clad females appealing to the pre-pubescent teen female (or male) market.

I'm also with the "crew" that finds "best" or "most important" lists impossibly subjective, and usually spread more heat than light. My opinionated 2 cents.

Digital Tradition Mirror
Seduced

Seduced
(G. Tigerman)

I want to be seduced
I want a man to take me out to dinner
I like to see his eyes getting moody
Thinking 'bout the thought of what flirtin's gonna to

I want him to be real cool
I want him to think about gettin' me right into bed
Have a chat about the Magna Charta, flirtin' my heart strings
"Something's gone" he said

I might demure politely,
But very slightly
If he tries to fondle my knee
But I'm relatively certain
I'll compromise if I know me

I want to be seduced
I want a man to talk to me suggestively
I'd like to hear him say he'll be with me tomorrow morning
Drinkin' hot jasmine tea.

I want him to make me laugh
I want him to make a point of touching me when we talk
Leaving all the jealous girls in the bar
To mumble in their beer and garb

You know it only happens when I'm nappin'
noddin' in reverie
But I wouldn't mind a man
Who wouldn't mind seducing
Right from the minute that we'd been introduced
I wouldn't mind a man
Who wouldn't mind seducing me.

recorded by Mary Coughlan on "Tired And Emotional" (1987)

Program note about Ravel's Boléro:   he wrote it as an exercise in orchestration. Starting out with a fairly straightforward melodic line and a relentlessly repetitive rhythm, he thought of it as "a study in boredom." He set himself to the task of trying to make it musically interesting by altering the orchestration with every repetition of the theme. After setting it to a bunch of different arrangements, he ran out of gas. He'd managed to drag it out for over fifteen minutes, and decided, "Gawd! That's enough of that!!"

The first time it was played in public, Paris, 1928, the audience went a bit nuts. Ravel was surprised, amazed, amused, and a bit mystified. He still regarded it as "a study in boredom."

Further note:   
Ravel once commented, "I have written only one masterpiece. That is the Boléro. Unfortunately, it contains no music." This bon mot expresses the idea that the musical content of the Boléro is not very interesting:   a simple melody is repeated over and over during a 17 minute crescendo. The reason it is a masterpiece is it keeps our rapt attention through the use of extraordinary orchestration. The tone colors are so fascinating and exquisite that the simple modulation from C major to E major at the very end of the piece comes as a breathtaking surprise. Boléro was composed as a ballet for the famed ballerina Ida Rubinstein. The story of the ballet is set in a bar, where a voluptuous dancer stomps and whirls on the tables, exciting the men in the bar until a violent knife fight erupts. A story is told that just after the premiere, a woman in the audience pointed at Ravel and shouted that he was mad. Ravel smiled and said that she truly understood the work.
A few years back, while in a music store rummaging through the records, I noticed a well-dressed, distinguished looking gentleman also looking through the records. Hanging on his arm he had a stereotypical petite thingy with a squeaky, little-girl voice. She looked to be a suicide blonde (dyed by her own hand), wore a blouse that displayed a rather magnificent fo'c'sle, a cleavage that could cause one to dwell on the joys of burrowing like a mole, and a pair of shapely legs amply revealed by a tight skirt that came all the way up to Jericho. I wasn't listening to their conversation, but I couldn't help but overhear some of her comments and it occurred to me that she probably wasn't a nuclear physicist. Sugar-daddy and his bimbo, perhaps? Anyway, the clerk put a record on the store's music system and the sounds of Ravel's Boléro began throbbing through the place. "OH!" squeaked the girl, her little voice piping through the shop like an air-raid siren. "Listen to that!" "Yes," responded the man. "Ravel's Boléro." "Oh, nooooo!" said the girl, "that's the theme from '10'!"

His eyes and mine met. I smile sympathetically. He rolled his eyes and sighed deeply. We went our separate ways. But I couldn't feel too sorry for him. The young lady may not have been top-rate in the intellectual acumen department, but she had her good points. Yes, she certainly did.

GUEST of 10:52: sung by Seamus?
Peggy Lee did a version of "Fever" that was in my recollection maybe half or less as fast as the only recording I can find, that was seriously steamy.
Roberta Flack's version of "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face."
Liam Clancy has done a handful of songs in that inimitable barely-past-a-whisper rendition that leave me pretty breathless.
And one vocal mannerism that even if it is just a bit of a trick never fails to get me right where it counts: when singing softly, a switch to spoken (also softly) for just a word or few. Heard well in Danny O'Flaherty's first recording of "Daddy's Castle" (on "Rainbow Flight") when he sings of the gifts he wishes to give his daughter, "sweet dreams, the music, no great sacrifice" and speaks the words "the music."
And BillD, we call the typo or misspeak that is better than the original a "bonaprop" and I am going to recall "goon example" as bonaprop for sure!

Runnera up:

1) Leonard Cohen's "No Cure for Love":

"I see you in the cafe.
I see you on the bus.
I see you lying down with me.
I see you waking up.
I see your hands, I see your hair,
Your bracelets and your brush
And I call to you -- I call to you
But I can't call soft enough ...."

Ravel's Bolero consistently gets mention when people debate sensual classical music, and it's personally familiar enough that I can remember why.

By reputation, another that gets cited quite often is Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata. Quite frankly it's been so long since I remember hearing it that I don't remember whether I found it "sexy" or not, but apparently a lot of people do, or at least did at one time.

It's possible that in this case the "sex appeal" was as much from the package of baggage that went with the piece. Beethoven wrote it, reportedly, as a "tribute to a friend." There's a novel by Tolstoy with the same Kreutzer Sonata title, that was risqué enough to be banned by the US Postal Service in 1890, and then Governer of New York Roosevelt was compelled to offer his comment that Tolstoy "is a sexual and moral pervert."

It comes to mind mainly because of a thread that's been up recently in which several of us spent a couple of years attempting to identify and find an accessible picture of the painting, Kreutzer Sonata, done by René Xavier Prinet as a tribute to Beethoven. We have after some considerable reasearch identified the painting as the image used in a Tabu perfume ad from the 1950s - cited a few years back as the "longest running advertising theme in US ad history."

The reputation of the music is/was sufficient that I'm told there's a passage about it in Vladimar Nabukov's Lolita.

Now if I could just remember what the piece sounds like...

As I recall, one of the things that makes Peggy Lee's rendition of "Fever" particularly steamy (other than Ms. Lee herself) is that she is accompanied only by a string bass and her own snapping fingers.

Ron, I definitely concur on Rachmaninoff's 2nd piano concerto and Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherezade." Really lush!

Since I have not heard all of the Music which has been written past, present & future, I could not speculate upon a specific piece of Music.    The sexiest work of Music I have heard, is another category entirely--I'd have to boil it down to a tie.
   When I was in college, a certain boyfriend of mine was passionate about JS Bach. We were listening to the Brandenburg Concerto #2, when he pulled me close & I said, "If you'll do the figured bass, I'll do the piccolo trumpet."
And then there's . . .
   Some years back, I was with a friend who said she had to stop off at the family business to pick something up. She said, "Come on in with me--you'll find this amusing." We went in through the back door, & down the hall from the office was a large room where there were Musicians playing Indian instruments--Sitars, flute, tablas & such. I'd heard ragas before, but nothing like that. She told me it was Classical Indian Music specifically composed for the art of making love. The family business was a brothel.

It was always Donna Summer's "Love To Love You Baby" - but that was probably hormonal, as I was in early adolescence. I'd also yet to develop any critical faculties! The BBC's ban on the record, which meant I had to listen to it in my bedroom on Radio Luxemburg, probably also added to the allure.

More in keeping with 'Cat sensibilities, it would probably now be anything by Bonnie Raitt - especially the one where she was purring along with John Lee Hooker that she was "In The Mood For Love".

"The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face." Good choice, samirich.

I first heard it sung live by Peggy Seeger at the 1960 Berkeley Folk Festival. Then, about twelve years later, in the movie "Play Misty for Me" (the original "Fatal Attraction"), there was a scene in which Clint Eastwood and Donna Mills are walking along a beach at sunset. During that scene, the background music is Roberta Flack singing "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face."

"Liar!" she exclaimed.

But it was. And that has my vote.

There is a bit in the middle of Michael Tippett's Fantasia Concertante on a Theme of Corelli which he stated straight out (years after writing it, maybe in his interview with Anthony Clare?) was an explicit description of the rhythms of fucking.

I've never heard it the same way since. And it hadn't occurred to me before that gay and straight sex would sound so metrically similar.
