My bachelor pad playlist

by GK on May 2, 2009 · 3 comments

If reincarnation does exist, I want to come back as a DJ. I spend more time than I can count digging through Web sites in search of the hot new band or track, and I’m also passionate about my old favorites. And if I’ve got a woman over, I enjoy sharing my collection.

For those of you in search of some bachelor pad date music that doesn’t include Barry White or R Kelly, I present to you GK’s Apartment Jamz, Volume 1. These are current songs I’ve been playing lately (mostly of the indie dance variety), and they’re quite conducive to setting the mood if you have company. I recommend playing these in the order I’ve provided, as the songs slow down toward the end:

The Juan Maclean — Happy House — Simply an amazing house song. At 12 1/2 minutes, it’s too short.

The-Dream — Walkin on the Moon (featuring Kanye West)

The Whitest Boy Alive — Burning — I’m thinking of changing my stage name to this guy’s.

Ladyhawke — Oh My

Friendly Fires — Paris (Aeroplane remix) — I rarely like the remix more than the original, but this one turns an already fun party song into a sexy classic.

M83 — Kim and Jessie — If you want some consistently good downtempo music, it’s tough to beat M83.

Gang Gang Dance — House Jam

Radiohead — Weird Fishes

Azeda Booth — Big Fists

The Juan Maclean — Tonight

M83 — Skin of the Night — You two really shouldn’t be listening by this point.

Hey GK!

Great post. Im gonna check out this songs. I wanna refer you to one of my youtube playlists. I have one for each mood,, but my “Canape” playlist (french for “sofa”) I think it’s retty good to set up the mood when you are alone at home with a lady.

Please tell me your opinion!

Not exactly my cup of tea. I suppose being mainly a rock / metal guy has it’s problems when you are trying to set a sexy mood. But then again most of the girls I like are also into the same music, so I guess they might get turned on listening to a guy screaming about death and destruction. Some more research is needed on this subject, I volunteer myself to find out 😛

I have a hunch that the kind of women you’re into WOULD be turned on by screaming metal bands, so I approve your research. :) I do think music is subjective, and not all women are going to like what I like, but as long as it puts ME in the mood, that will often transfer to her anyway.
