Nothing wrong with being a little suggestive and naughty from time to time! Rock&Roll has always been fun and sexy, after all! Many rock tunes are regarded as too provocative, getting out of hand and even a little bit sexist, but we have to understand that making love has always been and will always be an inseparable part of music.
I’ve always been somehow drawn to this direct, quite voluptuous side of rock&roll because let’s face it – it’s what makes things so much more interesting. I have created this playlist of 20 classic rock songs that are pretty spicy but definitely worth listening to. Whether its rhythm, lyrics or the overall atmosphere, each of these songs is about to make you sweat, I guarantee it! Also, if you and your significant other are in a good mood, this playlist can be a suitable companion for your special night.
I would also like to thank my Twitter friends who also participated in the creation of this playlist! You guys are awesome (you know who you are)!
Feel like making love?

The legendary, three-day Woodstock Festival is one of those musical events which can never be forgotten and will always be referred to as the pivotal festival that simply made history. Everyone has heard of it and so many of our parents were even there to attend it! Unfortunately, my generation will never have the chance to witness such magic. I mean, legends such as Grateful Dead, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and many more together on one stage, performing in front of over 400,000 people…imagine the scale of such event!
Woodstock festival, billed as “An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music” was scheduled from August 15 to 17, 1969, but it continued till the 18th on a dairy farm in New York state. The event gathered together hippies, flower children, rockers, rock legends and every other person who wanted to be part of history. It was declared as a free concert, as the fences were torn down and the huge flows of people were just simply crushing everything on their way. Babies were born, two people actually died, 33 people were arrested, tons of food was eaten, and tons of marijuana was smoked. This anti-war festival successfully managed to provide the idealistic harmony and quality of music the audience was hoping for. Definitely the biggest event in music!
Since we celebrated the 47th anniversary of Woodstock ’69 quite recently, I decided to gather up some live performances and remind my readers of the scale and brilliancy of the event. I hope you guys will enjoy the music and be able to feel the magic of Woodstock!
Today (July, 3) in 1971, at the age of 27 we lost the legendary Jim Morrison. He was found dead in a bathtub in Paris, France. Morrison died of a heart-attack brought on by his drug abuse. It is said that the heart attack was caused by heroin, however till today his death remains a mystery as no one is really sure what exactly happened that night.
In 1971, after Jim recorded “LA Woman”, he decided to move to France with his then-girlfriend Pamela Courson. Here’s when the story becomes somehow blurred. His girlfriend lied several times and constantly changed her version of the story. On top of that, it’s well known that Jim Morrison didn’t like heroin and was against using it, despite the fact that Pam was a heroin drug addict. According to the story, Pam lied to Jim about what kind of a drug she was using that night. As Jim thought it was cocaine, he snorted some of the “white substance” which turned out to be heroine and had a heart attack almost immediately.
There are several stories about how Morrison died. One version says that he died in a night club and his body was taken to the apartment. According to another version, he woke up in the morning coughing blood, then took a bath and eventually died in the bathtub. There’s even a story about him faking his own death.
Regardless, we lost a true icon and one of the most legendary musicians of all time. Drugs were indeed a huge part of his life and eventually they took the most of him. However, throughout his relatively short career, he, along with the rest of the group members from The Doors accomplished so much. These rebellious psychedelic rockstars produced some of the biggest hits of the 60s and the beginning of the 70s, such as “Waiting For The Sun’, “Riders on the Storm”, “Light My Fire”, “Love Me Two Times”, “Love Her Madly” and many more. The talented yet rebellious band was formed in the mid-60s and was named after Aldous Huxley’s “The Doors of Perception”.
Let’s celebrate the life and career of Jim by listening to some of his most famous works.
James Douglas “Jim” Morrison was born on December 8th, 1943 and died on July the 3rd, 1971! He was one of the most legendary and notable American singers, songwriters, showmen and poets and most certainly one of the biggest rockstars on the world! He is of course mostly famous for being the frontman of The Doors – one of the bands that defined rock music in the late 60s and that popularized psychedelic rock. Not only was he influencing people with his music, but he was also one of the most beloved cultural icons who stood for young people and counterculture!
He died at the age of 27 and became one of the members of the infamous “27 club”, along with artists such as Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.
What I mostly admire about him was the ability to improvise and include poetry in his music, especially during life performances. I am not going to talk about the way he lived because for sure – he was out of control and was a heavy drug user. What I want to focus on is his legacy. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest male singers of all time -with that distinctive sensual, delicate and rather sexual vocal delivery you can’t but admire him and lose yourself in his music. Also, the music he and his band played set grounds for progressive rock and eventually punk rock music. He had a wild stage persona and that is what made him so unique. He was most certainly not one of those humble musicians – he was feeling the music with all his body and soul and was showing it rather freely and explicitly. Through his lyrics, he wanted to open the minds and the hearts of people. Also, the disaffected young generation of the 60s was able to find themselves in his songs! For that and for many other reasons, today I decided to write a little post about this great rockstar! Sadly, we lost him at a very young age and who knows what could’ve happened if he was still alive…
Happy Birthday, Jim!
