Teen Death Songs

In the fifties, there was a whole trend of sappy songs about young love misunderstood and cut short by the tragedy of death. I tried to track down many of the titles, but they were pretty hard to come by. This is the CD of sorrowful tunes I was able to put together. If you

Songs That Turn Me On

This started out to be a CD of songs about sex, but I realized some of the songs that I find arousing aren’t necessarily about sex at all… Like number 7 through 11, which are all songs that have a sort of hypnotic gypsy sound that I find erotic. 01 – I’m On Fire –

Songs To Stalk Someone By (love series vol. 3)

This CD wasn’t originally part of the “Love” series; originally it was supposed to be “kissing”, “love”, and “sex”. But somehow the kissing CD never got off the ground.
