I was recently reading about the nocturnal Chinese tree frog, who has developed unique, high-frequency vocal skills to attract its mate.

Which got me thinking about Johnny Mathis.

(Admittedly quite a leap.)

The lights are low. The bubbly is chilling. And with the first few notes of "Come Fly with Me" the mood is set.

I'm only trying to help. And bear in mind it will soon be Friday night.

For those who prefer to take the express route, Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" is an obvious choice. But maybe too obvious.  The only way to get away with Barry White is to say it's not your CD— you don't know how it got there.

Billy Eckstine's "I Apologize" is peerless when it comes to making out and making up.

Then, of course, there's all those we're intimate with on a first name basis: Frank, Mel, Tony, Willie, Ella, Sarah...and well you get the picture.

Those with more refined palettes are free to debate the relative seductive merits of Erik Satie's delicate piano explorations versus the Beethoven cello sonatas, recorded in several forms by the peerless Yo-Yo Ma. (Surely I'm not the only one who recognizes some inherently sensual quality to the cello. Just watch the way a great cellist holds the thing.)

Jazz buffs probably already have a favorite Stan Getz or Ben Webster album for when the lights are low. "Body and Soul," Coleman Hawkins on the sax, will always do in a pinch. As a rule, experts say to avoid any complex lyrics, such as "My Old Flame" that might remind anyone of someone else.

Did I forget Antonio Carlos Jobim? I hope you won't.

But then there's no predicting what will light someone's fire. Which brings me to the obvious question. What is the music that makes you dance?

J. Peterman

These days tho, it's the sounds of the morning birds. With the kitchen window open, and the birdsong, I'm almost always put into some wonderful riff of music. It seems that the stored melodies in my memory, will find some rhythmin the birdsong,and suddenly transpose it to a remembered riff, words included. It's amazing how that works. I didn't know I knew that many pieces. Makes me wonder at the minds of musicians that can play complex tunes,by the thousands.

Well trained RY, haha.... and Ivan, that is so sweet.

Any music is fine with me except death metal and tailing that, rap music. Country's good when one is in the mood, I suspect many people are closet country fans, but music for when the lights are low has to be slow jazz. I've never had anyone serenade on the guitar, that would be really nice, nicer still would be someone who would write you a song. The closest I ever got to that was a poem written for me. Instruments wise, I love the strings; it's the sound, the shape and the way it has to be caressed; definitely the most sensual of all instruments.

Even dogs love the guitar.....I just love this video !
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBluUZ4NnZg

I stray a little, but I can never understand death and heavy metal. Studies on dogs have shown that it makes them angry and wild (sharks apparently love them), pop music does little but classical music really tames the savage beast.

I was never a dancer, my father disapproved. stating that dancing is "A vertical expression of a horizontal desire." Anyway, the house rule was being home by 10pm or else... by the time I left home at 16, I was so self-conscious about dancing that I avoided it. But, Spring F~ I did have the great pleasure of a guitar serenade. We were with friends at their place for dinner. Our host picked up his guitar and played for me. I knew it was for me 'cos I was young and beautiful then and I knew he had 'the hots' for me. I was enchanted - transfixed like a rabbit in the headlights by this amazing classical Spanish guitar music, the guitar talked to me about the pain of being 'in love' with forbidden fruit. Tears were running down my face, triggered by an ignored bit of my soul. Our hostess was a bit miffed, she being a musician too - first violin in the Manchester Philharmonic Orchestra, no less. To all intents and purposes, her husband and I had just made love on their living room floor. It is a lovely memory.

My husband remembers his family's one vacation to a cottage in the woods in Maine when he was young. He & his older brother were rummaging around & found a record called, "The Sounds of Love," & yes it featured the moanings of various people. They were titillated & grossed out. His older brother was so grossed out that he went rambling into the woods & found a bunch of marijuana plants..............they soothed his ravaged ears.....................

Morning Hazel, Bebe and Bert! Stopping by to say goodnight.. I've done my watch.
Gee...that reminds me of the days when I was a bond trader. We had a global "book" that was passed from the Asian desk (in Singapore) to London and then to NY and then back again ...

Love that story Hazel! See what I mean about the guitar being sensual? I think all instruments have personalities. I couldn't go out with someone in brass for instance. String players also often have beautiful fingers

Good night for now

Down & dirty blues really gets me going. The

rhythm & guitars are searing with sexual energy, and
if you hopped up on a table to dance, nobody
would make you stop. he he! Slow dancing to

one you love. Gosh, I really miss that!

Dancing keeps you young while at the same time it lets you know exactly how old you are.  My ex always refused to dance with me and that was depressing, so the next time around who ever I end up with HAS to dance.  These days I dance in my kitchen while cooking or cleaning.  The music can be anything from punk, middle eastern, swing, 80s pop, or showtunes, but by golly there will be dancing.

Once had a boy sing to me with his guitar in a dark beatnik Coffee House when I was 16 and he, 18, in high school, and he tried to rhyme with my eyes, then informed me "Nothing rhymes with orange....cat eyes." I was totally impressed with his looks, the setting, and his talents....for a few months. His dad was the head coach of Univ. of Fla. football at the time, and I was new to the school. I can still see that evening in my memory with the candles flickering on the low tables, the espresso coffee in tiny cups, the open mic with others in black tights chanting beat poems, and my feeling of being a stranger in a strange land.

The music that makes me dance.

 

It is dusk and the street lamps and house lights begin to
flicker on in the village. The steam on the window panes almost takes the chill
out of the air as I open the gate and turn onto the walkway leading to our
kitchen door.  I can just about taste the
sauce simmering on the stove as I step inside.

 

I know her back will be to the door, and she will be facing
either the stove or the sink, maybe reaching for the spice rack or standing on
her toes to retrieve another bottle of olive oil from the shelf. There is music
in the air and flowers on the table and if not, it always seems as if there is.

 

From behind, I take her hand. She twirls toward me and the
folds of her skirt swirl out, her face tilts back, her eyes lift up to meet
mine and her free hand knocks into the saucepan spilling the sauce down her
skirt and onto the floor. “I should have been wearing an apron,” she laments as
our salsa comes to an abrupt end.

Bert, I always loved watching kids do the jitterbug in movies...still do. The jitterbug was a little before my time, but I did win a twist contest. My husband and I used to make a weekly dancing night out. Haven't done that in a while, but he recently asked/paid the Mariachis to come over to our table to play. It was lovely, but made me feel a little self conscious.

Being a belly dancer, Led Zeppelin"s Kashmir does it for me. Rose petals of a path on the floor bringing you up to the bed room and the scented lit candles are all around the room a very light breeze blowing sheer silk veils of many colors and my man sitting nicely on the bed with pillows all around him to make him feel comfortable and don't forget the nice bubbly, and then the music plays and I appear as his temptress in the beautiful dance of Cabret style dancing with my veil and then into my soulful dance of getting lost into the music and my man dying to touch me, but not till the music over.

"Dance Me to the End of Love" by Leonard Cohen has its sexy tones but has an eerie origin...did you see the blurb where he said he came up with it from the memory of strings playing beautiful music by the gas chambers of the Nazis?? How odd.....that kinda takes the joy out of that romantic tune.

ChefDeb - I like James Taylor, too!! That Kern song is so good, many have sung it....Dean Martin was very suave in doing it. Here are two versions:

spring rain - "Dance me to the Edge of Forever" by TaeNy is a different song than the one above, "Dance Me to the End of Love." The forever song has a weak video, bu the lyrics and feeling are winners! I hope this is the one you mean....

Mooseloop, I was not referring to a song, but a PAINTING.  It was a picture  that had NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with a song.  I don't know this music you all are talking about.

I was warned not to do this (I won’t name names)

but someone out there is going to like this.

You think you know who you are.

Don’t thank me, don’t report back to me, don't even acknowledge that you are the one you think you are.

 I Love to dance.  I love all types of music. I remember the summer evening's breeze had a gentle caress. It was a perfect night to wear my silk dress.  My favorite silk dress that hugged the perfect parts of my body. It was taunting, seductive and it felt lighter than air. It had a slit from neck down to my knee. A button held the top, elastic held the waist and when I crossed my legs or a gentle breeze came by my legs were exposed, but only partially to display that fact that my thighs were trim, shapley and that I was wearing a garter, that he loved.   While waiting in line to enter a new restaurant that had just opened, he gently glazed his finger across my lower back. I responded with an gasping sigh, loud enough to have the couple in front of us grin. We were seated on the upper outdoor balcony. where we could here the sound of a band and the lead singer, a woman singing with a sultry tone.  After one drink we decided this band was worth investigating.  I remember him holding out his hand to lead me to the dance floor. Just then a gentle breeze blew between us and my dress. He tilted his head with a mischievous grin of pleasure when he noticed my garter and pulled me close as we danced. The night was intoxicating.

If someone offers you what they thought you were looking for or talking about why would you answer in caps & not nicely at that?????? Seriously, all you need to say is, "Thanks, but that's not what I meant."Lots of personal specifics.............my Puritan side is going,"Stop sharing"! I'm sure I'm in the minority and just easily freaked out....................or creeped out................I have issues, I need a cheese & mayo sandwich for breakfast..............................

PAOLOS......................One side is Amish & the other Puritan...................................they try & beat each other up.................which is neither very Amish & Puritan..................... GRAYGOOSE.........................glad it brought you a laugh, I had the same reaction when he told me.................I think it helped make him the semi prude that he is....................luckily I find it charming................... Neil Diamond definitely had it going o back in the day. There is a Black guy that does a Neil Diamond review called, I believe, Black Diamond & he is supposed to be fantastic. He recently played nearby & after I read the article on him I was so mad at myself for missing it.  (okay we'll skip the part where it was a school night & I was broke, BUT I would have made it happen.......)

So many things to choose from growing up:
 
Heart: Magic Man ("Never seen eyes so blue..."); Crazy On You ("I was a willow last night in a dream, I bent down over a clear running stream, I sang you the song that I heard from above, And you kept me alive with your sweet flowing love"); These Dreams...I could go on forever about Ann and Nancy's lyrics andthe love they send
 
Bob Seger
 
Eric Clapton "You Look Wonderful Tonight"
 
Believe it or not, Three Dog Night's "Mean Mistreater"  ("Can't you see I'm real?")
 
Almost anything by George Benson, Anita Baker, the Supremes...and the list goes on.
 
Best of all, though, is my Mother singing "Hush Now MyLittle One."  The words and sounds of love run through every syllable,still.  Even though she's eighty, she can still sing like the morning lark.  She can bring me to tears with the rush of love I feel for her...and feel from her.  Mom, I love you!

Then he introduced my to opera.  He told I would love it. He watched as the hairs on my arms turned to goose-bumps and then he wiped a tear from my eye with his handkerchief.
The handkerchief would soon be in my sole possession. I was thankful for water-proof mascara.  He would glance and smile, a  very gentle smile.  He knew he was right, I was in love.
 There is something to be said for music from France, Spain, Italy.  The common thread is passion, that zest for life that reaches to the very core of your soul.  It is the inspiration that moves the emotions.

Yesterday's Discussion

There have been a whole slew of feuds through the ages that were never reconciled. A new study shows holding a grudge is not good for us.
