My Top 5 Rooting Songs
5. Down With Her - Rocket City Riot
[Play: hifi lofi. Artist Details.]
Well, I had to include at least one song from a decent record label.
It's like I'm flying and I don't ever wanna come back down. Oh yeah.
I wanna get down with her tonight; it's the only place I want to be.
4. Mouth - Merril Bainbridge
When I kiss your mouth, I want to taste it;
Turn you upside-down, don't want to waste it.
For some reason, my prurient mind equated that line with oral sex, even though she clearly says "mouth".
Runner up from the same era is Right In The Night by Jam & Spoon: silky female vocals singing "just come and get me in my big big bed of love".
3. Melbourne - The Whitlams
Sometimes a song paints a picture and I develop a crush on the woman or girl featured in the song.
She paints pictures on the wall; She eats all of the garden;
She has an aversion to conviction; and she calls her dog The Bear.
In love with this girl, and with her town as well.
Walking 'round the rainy city.
What a pity there's things to do at home.
Runner up in this category is I Got A Girl by Tripping Daisy.
2. Closer - Nine Inch Nails
I wanna fuck you like an animal;
I want to feel you from the inside.
Who can resist a lyric like that? Direct and forceful, making The Bloodhound Gang's The Bad Touch sound like a novelty song. Sing this in your partner's ear and he (or she) will know you're up for a root; hard, fast, raunchy.
1. Asleep The Snow Came Flying - Tim Story
Part of The Swoon Collection Vol. III from ABC Classics. A relaxing album and sensuous too. Put it on low, grab the massage oil, and let the night unfurl. Out with words like "root"; think love-making, tantric sex, kama sutra...
