#30DayWritingChallenge (Day 18) List 13 songs that inspire your love scenes

For me, writing love scenes always need to have a certain level of romance, sexiness and sensuality, of course, depending on the character I’m writing.

I love it when a scene gives me the “feels”, allows me to almost visualize what’s going on, kind of like a movie in my head. That’s what sexy scenes in novels should be like.

If I want to write “sexy”, I need to get into the mood and music is the only way to go. If it means putting a song on repeat until I’ve hit the climax of the scene I’m drafting so be it. I have many playlists that fit this purpose.

As usual, when it comes to music, I could easily go overboard so I’ll be listing the first 13 sexy/romantic songs that I have written scenes to and I can hyperlink Youtube videos to. And yeah, 13 songs because I couldn’t choose 10!

As usual, all these songs “tell a song” with the lyrics, just as a song should!

Love Ballad


You Give Good Love

Two Occasions

Someone To Hold

Spend My Life With You (Quarantine version)

Rock Me Tonight

My My My

You Should Be Mine (The Woo Woo Song)

Only Human

Any Time, Any Place

Rock the Boat

Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda

And that’s the end of today’s challenge question.

What are some of your most favorite romantic/sexy songs?
