Gettin' Your Groove On

So...a friend of a friend is like 43 years old and finally lost his virginity a couple weeks ago. We'll call him...Tim.

Way to go, Tim!

Now Tim is looking for suggestions for "groove songs" know what I mean.

I suggested Nine Inch Nails' Closer, but that suggestion was met with some derision. So I look to you people for help.

What are your favorite "groove songs"?

"Jungle Love" by Morris Day and the Time.

Way to go, man! If it wasn't for alcohol I woulda made it that far too.

Sade, Luther Vandross, or Keith Washington work.

Peaches & Cream by 112 proved to be a good one for me, followed closely by a bunch of R Kelly songs w/ strong beats. On a related note, someone I know from Atlanta-- we'll call him Nathan, and by Nathan I mean Dan, when asked to sum up his sexual life through a song title, came up with "Smack My Bitch Up" by Prodigy. Sadly, my sex life would be best summed up by "Blister in the Sun" by Violent Femmes. Anyone?

Hmmm, mood is everything, I think. Sometimes you feel like "Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin, other times it's "Intrigue" by Marianne Faithful.
Personally, I prefer to "groove" a capella. Intimate tempo and rhythm is a fluid thing that only ends up being intruded upon by ambient music. But that's just me... :)

Oh, no no no ... Al Green is the man. "Let's Stay Together" is one of the all-time best groove songs. It's even paced right, although let's hope it's longer than a 3-minute experience for 'Tim'. Get some vintage Al Green and let it flow, man.

Al Green, Jimmy Spheeris, Simply Red... take your pick

Barry White. Or the very hard-to-find Very White.
