Music and the Slow Burn

Background music: Dance Me to the End of Love, Madeleine Peyroux

I was responding to a post this morning, talking about the slow burn, and it got me to thinking about music and its ability to enhance it (or in some cases bring it about). As any movie maker could tell you, the music playing in a scene can totally change the feelings your audience are feeling even with the same scene before their eyes. Music IS that powerful. So then, why is it so often overlooked by many?

I liked the fact that AdultFriendFinder included that question in the additional responses section about what music does to you (inspire you? give you a chance to sing? it's nice to have in the background?) For me, a response like that last one tells me he is most likely NOT my perfect match. The man who will sweep me off my feet is the man who feels swept away himself with the right tempo and words, who likes the art of seduction and uses music to express who he is inside (even if he never is able to express it in his own words), who feels the energy that music stirs and revels in how it can heighten an already existing connection/flow.

While I often have a little Etta James, Nat King Cole, or Nina Simone on when I want to have a slow burn, sometimes it can be a Def Leppard, Aerosmith, Luciano Pavarotti, Verdi or Puccini, George Strait, Jose Luis Rodriguez, the list goes on. I had one of the most romantic encounters of my life to Tears for Fears. You just never know. It's worth paying attention to though ... it can, for some, mean the difference between a good encounter and a great encounter ... something to think about, no?

What was the most smoldering or exciting or fun/wild time that you have experienced that was made all the more so by the "background" music?

I think this is such a interesting observation as I agree that the music in my life does add to the life experience's.There are so many moments with music that I would do a injustice to name any one artist or tune.Some of the music that spoke out to me at times was Dan Fogelberg,B.B King,Jimi Hendrixs,chicago,paul young,willie nelson,cat stevens,santana just so I put something down although there are so many more and they all had some input on what I did.If one day the music stopped then I think all would not overlook it so much?

Hello 1stWG~~ Nice to see you here in my little corner of Blogville. Your response got me to thinking of the Don McLean song ... American Pie (The Day the Music Died). As a young girl I remember hearing the song and trying to picture a world without music and it seemed to even lose its color to me.
Sooo ... {slow smile and twinkling eyes} what type of music would you use to set the mood? Hmmm?

It was a very pleasant surprise to discover that there are a number of very talented writers on the AdultFriendFinder blogsite and you, dear, are among the very best. Intelligent, articulate and entertaining, I look forward to your posts. Both you and SaintLianna make my day.
Like you, I cannot imagine life without music.
Etta James, Billie Holiday, Count Basie...Nirvana, David Bowie, Bob Marley...Mozart, Liszt and Tchaikovsky. Music is my only drug and I love the addiction.
Are you familiar with a band known as Morphine? If Hollywood EVER gets around to making big budget porn films, Morphine's music has to be the soundtrack.
Thank you for posting here and thank you for the kind words.

Jon~~ Thanks for coming on over to my Blog. I really enjoyed yours immensely. I, like many bloggers, came for the personals but once I found the blogs I was hooked. There are a lot of talented writers and so many interesting people (I love Saint's blog too.)

Your music collection sounds like mine ... a little of it all. I'm off to the opera Saturday night, then next week to a small venue to hear Slaid Cleaves. Etta James came to Dallas a few months back and I could kick myself for not going. As far as addictions go, I'd say music is a great one to have, no?

I'm not familiar with Morphine but my curiousity is piqued. I'll look them up tonight. Perhaps if I write another naughty story I'll use them as my background music.

Thanks for your post. Be "seeing" you soon, I hope. (I've got you on my "watched blogs" list.)
