There is obviously a long story behind this post, but it will have to wait for my upcoming “Dummies Guide to Burlesque Songs” post, as I’m super busy with holiday plans this weekend.

Here, without further ado, is a quick list of perfectly perfect tunes for the brave little dancer (or voyeur) inside each of you. In no particular order:

1. Good Morning Little Schoolgirl – Muddy Waters
2. The Lady is a Tramp – Lena Horne
3. Fever – Peggy Lee
4. Honeysuckle Rose – Fats Waller
5. Love Me Like a Man – Diana Krall
6. In the Mood – Puppini Sisters
7. Cheek to Cheek – Eva Cassidy
8. Finest Lovin’ Man – Bonnie Raitt
9. If I Had You – Adam Lambert
10. Born This Way – Lady Gaga

You’ll notice this list spans everything from Hollywood classics to contemporary pop hits. More on this soon, including fantastic lists of songs separated into vintage, blues, big band, vocal, etc. I’ll leave the creativity to you.

What songs do YOU love? Even if you don’t dance for your sweetheart (or he/0she doesn’t dance for you), what songs do you think would be absolutely magical for a burlesque routine or sexy striptease? Maybe yours will make one of the lists in my next post!

  1. I like to think of myself as a bit of a music aficionado and am also rather fond of enjoy beautiful women dancing provocatively. I thought I would throw my hat into the ring and offer up 10 songs that I would enjoy listening to while also visually enjoying the how the song can be played out erotically for my viewing pleasure. There are of course many more songs that could be added to this list and this is in no particular order. Love the posts and enjoy reading them, keep them cumming!!!
    1. Let’s Get It On – Marvin Gaye
    2. Sexual Healing – Marvin Gaye
    3. Nickelback – Figured You Out
    4. Ordinary Love – Sade
    5. Late Night – Neal Schon
    6. What’s New Pussycat – Tom Jones
    7. Why – Annie Lennox
    8. Like A Virgin – Madonna
    9. Somewhere Over The Rainbow – Israel Kamakawiwo’ole
    10. Lady In Red – Chris Deburg
