Valentine’s Day “Baby-Making Music” Playlist


Valentine’s Day is a day for love, gift giving, chocolate and, of course, getting it on. So when things get heated, you can get down on it with this playlist of baby-making music to set the mood just right.

Marvin Gaye – Let’s Get It On
It might be physically impossible to make a list of intimate songs without including “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye. This is one of those songs that has been played for decades now to help get loved ones in the mood. So this Valentine’s Day, “Stop beating around the bush/ Let’s get it on” – Daniel Szoke

The Beatles – Michelle
Maybe it’s not the most obvious song that could lead to “you know what”, but an argument can certainly be made. That is if you’re not busy with something else after the first chorus…Anyway, it’s got all the important elements (in my not so humble opinion) – acoustic guitar, lovely melodies, Paul McCartney’s voice, and French in the verses. It’s not aggressive or blatant, but some of the more subtle things in life turn you on too! – Luke Ray

Shaggy – It Wasn’t Me
When I first heard It Wasn’t Me in eighth grade I had pretty much no idea what this song was about, but looking back I’m sure several babies were made to this song, or because of it. Thank you, Shaggy for bringing so many lives into the world. What would Valentine’s Day be without you? – Alleya Weibel

Frank Ocean – Pyramids
Slow Jams. Slow Jams. Slooooowwww Jaaaamsssss. If you’re going to be getting hot and heavy, there is nothing better than a slow jam. On top of that, there is nothing better than a TEN MINUTE LONG slow jam. This song is full of passion and sensuality and lust. This song also ends with a John Mayer guitar solo. John Mayer is the epitome of “baby-makin’ guitar playin’”. – Joe Winner

Washed Out – Eyes Be Closed
The warm, pillowy synths on Washed Out’s debut album opener, “Eyes Be Closed” create the perfect backdrop for those not-so-lonely nights in bed. It’s feel-good music to feel good to, and its pulsing rhythm lends itself well to late night extracurricular activities. Also, kudos must go to this song for the sexiest use of rototoms since Phil Collins, I’m pretty sure that drum fill could make some babies all by itself. – Eric Holmes

R. Kelly – Bump N’ Grind
If you’re looking to make your holiday just a little bit sweeter, nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day better than R. Kelly’s “Bump N’ Grind”. Something about a man singing there ain’t nothing wrong with a little bump’n’grind in all sorts of falsettos is really a truly enchanting experience for everyone. And we must not forget the infamous and ambitious song beginning where R. Kelly heroically blares his voice into something of a deep, burning passion describing his physical need to just get it on. And I think I speak for everyone when I say we’ve all been stuck in a situation where “my mind is tellin’ me no, but my body is tellin’ me yes” (aka every trip to Torticas). This song is four minutes and sixteen seconds of luscious lyrics about R. Kelly’s methods on what to say when trying to swoon in that one girl. And ya know what R.Kelly? Even though it’s been more than ten years since the song was released, there still really ain’t nothing wrong with a little bump’n’grind on Valentines Day. – Mandy Rodio

The Beatles – Why Don’t We Do It In The Road
This classic gets right to the point with its lyrics, but the straightforward call to “do it in the road” is not the only suggestive element at play. The mid-tempo movement lends a relaxed tone to the song, contrasting with the simple and tense piano chords. The calm bass beats counters the screechy vocals in a skillful and piercing way, and all the musical contradictions create a tension that fits with the seductive nature of the song. The song’s short length allows its suggestion to seem more funny and carefree than romantic and cheesy. – Claire Schoeder

Marvin Gaye – Sexual Healing
I’m not sure if it’s the lyrics or the simple fact that any words Marvin Gaye sings creates the sense of euphoria, but this song is a go-to for your baby making pleasures. The song captures the pure need for human connection to heal every type of “ailment” one may have. From Mad Cow to a case of the Mondays, Marvin’s healing can fix you right up. – Ellen Youpel
