Sade, ”Cherish the Day”
Her voice is angelic and melodic. The beat is so erotic.

Nina Simone, ”I Put a Spell on You”
Breakup-to-makeup music.

James Brown, ”It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World”
JB was the man to pull this off. Women love this song.

Cesaria Evora, ”Crepuscular Solidao”
It’s a Portuguese song about longing for love. It induces fantasies and infatuations.

Janet Jackson, ”Any Time, Any Place”
Trouble. This song is trouble.
