Kissing, making out, hooking up, locking lips – whatever you want to call it. If you need some inspiration for your next session, look no further. Introducing our new series, “Songs to…”
Frank Ocean – ‘Thinkin Bout You’
A playlist is barely a playlist until it has Frank Ocean’s beautiful voice in it, let alone one especially curated to make out to. And ‘Thinkin Bout You’ is a favourite, with swoonful strings, the ebbing and flowing synths and THAT falsetto.
RÜFÜS – ‘Innerbloom’
This is an epic journey of a song. A builder, an explosion, and a sweet comedown. There’s something in here for every mood. Clocking in at nearly 10 minutes, get comfortable.
Justin Bieber – ‘What Do You Mean?’
It’s not just teenage girls dying to kiss someone special to Justin Bieber anymore, I’ll be the first to admit Justin Bieber has never looked better than in this video clip. You can almost forget just how far off the rails he’s gone. And that alone has earned this track an entry.
Chet Faker – ‘No Diggity’
So famous for his sultry voice and equally sultry beard, Chet Faker’s cover of ‘No Diggity’ which propelled him into the spotlight five years ago put him on the map as the resident indie hot guy of Melbourne music. With an undeniably grooving bassline, this is made for a hot and heavy make out sesh.
The Weeknd – ‘The Hills’
Ah, The Weeknd. A must-have in this specific playlist. This song physically super intimate with the vocal distortions and lyrics, “I’m just tryna get you out the friend zone,” and, “I only love it when you touch me, not feel me…when I’m fucked up, that’s the real me…”
Violent Soho – ‘Covered in Chrome’
A bit of a curve ball some might think, but that rowdy chorus has the potential to really inspire some fireworks. Better yet, this is perfect for that 1am corner-of-the-club hook up with a stranger. Hell, fuck yeah?
Flight Facilities – ‘Two Bodies’ ft. Emma Louise
While I’ve always had a slight discomfort with this certain line, “I don’t mind if you take advantage of me,” Flight Facilities are masters at a shivers-up-the-spine track, and no track does it better than ‘Two Bodies’. A very literal representation of this playlist. This song is next-level intimate, intensely vulnerable. Get a load of this video clip.
Usher – ‘Climax’
With a name like ‘Climax’, there’s no prizes for guessing what was on Usher’s mind with this song. It’s beautifully and delicately composed, thanks to Diplo’s magic production. The man who nurtured Justin Bieber from the start, he is the OG.
