Cherry Poppin' Pop

While we're on the topic of losing one's virginity, this is kind of fun.

Different hep bands suggest
Songs to lose your virginity to.

The Black Velvets and the Thirteen Senses nabbed two of my would-be suggestions. But those fellas in Goldie Lookin Chain are obviously the kinkiest of the lot--stay away from them.

Hm. How about the Stone's "She Comes in Colors?" Or maybe another Barry White--"Love Serenade?" Rod Stewart's "Tonight's the Night?" Why are all these so old?

Actually, I'd love to lose my virginity to Interpol's "Evil." But too late for that now. Though maybe I can pretend with someone, just for fun. Volunteers?

So. Any suggestions from all you musically-inclined pervs out there? If you were gonna bed a virgin, or if you were going to do it all over again, what would be the best song(s) for losing virginity to?

One song isn't a long enough soundtrack to do it justice. But a few of my favorite sex CDs:

Air "Talkie Walkie"
My Bloody Valentine "Loveless"
"American Beauty" soundtrack
Aphex Twin "Selected Ambient Works" volume II
New Order "Power Corruption & Lies"

and maybe, depending on how cool the girl is and how chemically altered you are, Sonic Youth's "Bad Moon Rising".

Ray: Oooh, "Loveless." One of my all-time favorite gettin' down CDs. Every time I hear the opening of "Only Shallow" I get the shivers and want to start undulating immediately. Damn. I need to go listen to it. Right. Now.

Great choices. Hm, I wonder if I'd be cool enough to rate "Bad Moon Rising"...sounds like a lot of pressure there. Of course, I could just get chemically altered and then I wouldn't have to be cool.

Oh, and if anyone thought I meant you had to pick one song, not at all. Give me a whole playlist if you want.

I can't really answer the question as phrased coherently.

However, when my lover and I had our first sexual intercourse (it was neither our first night together nor our first sexual experience, which deprives me of really easy ways of referring to it) we brought up my music collection and put it on random (as is my habit).

As we were making love, the shuffle chose to play "Dragonfly" by the Cr├╝xshadows, which was, in that moment, utterly perfect.

I was fond of the song before it picked up that set of associations ....

"Tonight, my love, ascend the gates, release the dragonfly."

first time, there was no music (I'll get to that story later).

If we're wishing, I would wish to lose my virginity while hearing a live performance of Mozart's requiem by the Cambridge university choir, possibly in trinity chapel while concealed among the pews or in the balcony(in my fantasy, circumstances are such that this is not as uncomfortable as it might sound).

Failing this, I would choose to lose my virginity (again) To the strains of Kate Bush's Hounds of Love album, the (first) actual orgasm coinciding with the bridge during the song Running up that Hill. Obviously, you'd have to change the order of the songs a bit.

Darkhawk: That's a nice story/song. You know, for someone who's been pretty obsessed with music during my life, I've realized through this post that I have *no* distinct memories of which songs were in the background during any of my first times with any of my lovers. Odd. I think once I get worked up, I'm kind of in a more nirvana-like state--everything else falls away except sensation and the only sound I seem to focus on are the sounds my lover is making.

Strangely, the only background sound I *do* remember for an early-on sexual experience with someone was an not-all-that-long-ago intense session where the sounds of the show "Battlebots" was going on in the background (the show switched over to that mid-action). But I think that sticks only because it was so the antithesis of a sexy background soundtrack to be getting it on to. But you know, if it's good, you can pretty much do it to the sound of industrial drills, I guess...

Okay, now I have a new church pew fantasy to add to my list. Very hot, very creative--sacreligious/holy ecstasy-ish at the same time. Bravo!

"I would choose to lose my virginity (again) To the strains of Kate Bush's Hounds of Love album...Obviously, you'd have to change the order of the songs a bit."

Isn't that the sole reason they invented iTunes?

You'd play a requiem while deflowering an innocent young thing? That's positively evil. Gotta make doubly sure that she cries, I guess.

There wasn't any music playing when I lost mine (10:30pm, January 30, 1982, on a deserted road in New Orleans east just off the NASA exit, before any of that neighborhood was developed), since it was in the back seat of a Ford Galaxy and we didn't want to accidently wear out the car battery.

But I remember driving home after dropping her off and that David Bowie & Freddy Mercury song "Under Pressure" came on the radio and I sang along really loud with a shit-eating grin on my face. I was so very very happpy.

Eight months later she'd rip my heart out of my chest and show it to me, still beating, before she devoured it and moved on to the next hapless victim, but I didn't know that at the time.

Wow, Ray, I thin I might know that girl.

(checks the scars)

The first thing that came to mind for me was I wanna fuck you like an animal but hell, when I actually did the deed it would have been Pink Floyd or Kansas or Led Zep or something, and there would have been a bong on the bedside table so I don't remember much.

Clearly, there's only one song that really works to tell that special lady how much she means to you: Boots Randolph's "The Yakety Sax."

Seriously, the Cat Power/Handsome Boy Modeling School song "I've Been Thinking" is like sex in a soundwave. And don't forget Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs/Twilight Singers. Great smoky voice and attitude. His cover of "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair" is jaw-droppingly great.

Still beeeaating...
Breakin' outa your body

Sorry. I couldn't help myself. It just got stuck in my head.

And "Under Pressure" is a great song.

Karl Elvis: Wasn't there some joke in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" about using side one of Led Zeppelin IV to get a girl to have sex with you?

The Shemp: Looks like I need to get me some new downloads. I love Cat Power but I don't know that song.

"The" Shemp? As in of Howard, Howard, and Fine?

Believe it or not, I lost my virginity to "Slide It In" by Whitesnake. This was NOT by choice, just what happened to be on the radio at the time.
