Although there's not likely to be an occasion for me to ever use these, I still thought it'd be fun to make a list of ideal make out music, otherwise known as music that gets you in the mood, whether it's the mood for cuddling, kissing or... more. I've tried to divide all of these into five categories, but realistically speaking, some of them do overlap. Nevertheless, here's a list of songs that I think are pretty damn good for getting some action. Some are a little depressing to listen to when you're by yourself, but I happen to like sad songs that speak of yearning. What better emotion to inspire in your intended target?

On The Dance Floor
I'd love to hear these songs on the dance floor. If you're my partner, you should watch out.

  • Unkle - In A State (Sasha Remix)
  • Faithless - Salva Mea
  • Energy 52 - Cafe del Mar
  • Paul Oakenfold - Southern Sun
  • Armin van Buuren - Burned with Desire
  • Motorcycle - As The Rush Comes
  • Rank 1 - Breathing
  • Delerium - Silence
  • Sasha - Baja (also for Making Out)
Setting The Mood
Any of these will put you in good stead for the whole night.

  • Air - Moon Safari (album)
  • Massive Attack - Mezzanine (but any of their albums pre-100th Window will do, really)
  • City of Angels - Soundtrack
Making Out
These songs are so sexy, you can't help but give in to your instincts... especially when the climax kicks in!

  • Godsmack - Voodoo
  • U2 - With or Without You
  • U2 - All I Want Is You
  • Chicane - Saltwater (If I happen to hear this while on the dance floor... well, look out!)
  • Paula Cole - Feelin' Love
  • Meredith Brooks - What Would Happen...?
  • Dido - Here With Me
  • Radiohead - Street Spirit
  • Mazzy Star - Into Dust
  • Depeche Mode - Enjoy The Silence (Mike Shinoda Reinterpretation)
  • Lamb - Gorecki
  • Gotan Project - Santa Maria
These songs are sweetly, understatedly sexy. More for love than for lust.

  • U2 - Bad
  • U2 - Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
  • Creed - Higher
  • Dave Matthews Band - Crash Into Me
  • Damien Rice - Blower's Daughter
  • Fiona Apple - Please Send Me Someone To Love
  • Norah Jones - Come Away With Me
  • Norah Jones - Turn Me On
  • Maroon 5 - She Will Be Loved
  • Goo Goo Dolls - Iris
  • Coldplay - God Put A Smile Upon Your Face
  • John Mayer - Your Body Is A Wonderland
  • Sophie B Hawkins - Damn, I Wish I Were Your Lover
  • Dave Matthews Band - Crush
  • Gigolo Aunts - My Favourite Regret
After The Fact
Or should that be after the deed? Perfect for cuddling and other stuff.

  • Faithless - Don't Leave
  • Evanescence - My Immortal
  • Sneaker Pimps - Spin Spin Sugar
  • Mazzy Star - Fade Into You
  • Sade - By Your Side
  • Fiona Apple - Criminal
  • Bush - Letting the Cables Sleep
  • DJ Tiesto - Close To You
  • Coldplay - In My Place
  • Coldplay - The Scientist
  • Depeche Mode - Somebody
  • Chicane - No Ordinary Morning
Thanks to these helpful sites / threads and some other sites I read a long time ago while still in London, but which no longer exist.

Agreed with you re Depeche Mode, Dido, Air and one song by the Sneaker Pimps whose name I'm not sure of. I would add that the Sneaker Pimps should really be called the One Sick Puppy Pimps.
