Songs That Make You Wanna F*ck.  A Compenium from the Readers of The Crush Letter.

Christian Pan's: Dead of Night By Orville Peck

What about the song musically does it for you?

Orville's voice is smooth and sexy like brand new leather. He doesn't sing, but seduces, and his croons are rich and textured like the best of Roy Orbison and Elvis, only more mysterious and queer.  There's a vastness to the musical space of “Dead of Night”, and when I listen to it I feel like I'm driving through those vast open landscapes in the Southwest. The lyrics seem simple at first, but are filled with subtle but distinctive double-entendres. Altogether, the song and how Orville
sings it is utterly sensual and sexy, like your lover whispering directly into your ear while you try to keep your eyes on the road behind the wheel of your car while speeding through the darkness sometime before midnight.

Is there a memory you attach to this song?

It reminds me of the first time I met my lover, who introduced me to the song and this artist, and who spent childhood summers in Wyoming.

Who/What are you thinking of when you hear this song?

This song always reminds me of kissing my kinky librarian. :)

Anything else…?

I'm road-tripping to Pittsburgh next month to hear Orville live at the Roxian Theatre. I can't wait to see him and hear him in person!

Sarah Vespermann's:  “#1 Crush” By Garbage

What about this song musically does it for you?

Where to start? The whole song is very sexual, from the moaning in the background, the hypnotic beat (which lends itself to hips moving in sync) to Shirley Manson’s deep, expressive voice. Then the lyrics. A wee bit dark and obsessive, but the raw sexuality pervades throughout.

Is there a memory you attach to this song?

I first heard this song in the ‘90s, watching Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet. I loved this modern reimagining of a 400-year-old story. The song absolutely compliments the movie.

Who/what are you thinking of when you listen to this song?

This song reminds me of a youthful desire that feels endless and impossible to satiate. Currently, it makes me want to be naked with my man.

Anything else...?
“#1 Crush” is kinda fitting for The Crush Letter, no?

Evie Arnaude's:  I Hate Myself for Loving You By Joan Jett

What about this song musically does it for you?

I confess—I debated whether or not to choose this song or Joan’s cover of “Crimson and Clover”, but because the category is “Songs That Make You Wanna F*ck” and not “Songs That Make You Wanna Have Steamy, Sultry Lovemaking To”, I chose this one. There’s simply something relatable about hating yourself for loving someone, because, let’s face it, the feeling generally comes from a place a white-hot passion.

Is there a memory you attach to this song?

Hmmm…nothing I can think of, only the deep—very deep—desire to find someone to grind with whenever I hear it.

Who/what are you thinking of when you listen to this song?

Something hard and satisfying.

Anything else...?

The absolute truth is: Anything Joan sings becomes an anthem for sex. Because it’s Joan Jett, and she’s the sexiest woman in rock ‘n roll.
